 Call for Project Proposals

Intelligent Systems Lab Amsterdam of the University of Amsterdam invites project proposals for eNTERFACE’10, the 6^th Summer Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces, to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from July 12^th to  August 6^th , 2010. Following the tremendous success of the previous eNTERFACE workshops ( <>), eNTERFACE’10 aims at continuing and enhancing the tradition of collaborative, localized research and development work by gathering, in a single place, leading researchers in multimodal interfaces and students to work on specific projects for 4 complete weeks. eNTERFACE’10 will encompass presentation sessions, including tutorial state-of-the-art surveys on several aspects of design of multimodal interfaces, given by invited senior researchers, and periodical presentations of the results achieved by each project group. The ultimate goal is to make this event a unique opportunity for students and experts from all over the world to meet and effectively work together, so as to foster the development of tomorrow’s multimodal research community. Project submissions on all themes below are welcome. We particularly encourage interdisciplinary proposals covering several themes and proposals integrating the OpenInterface and/or the EyesWeb XMI platforms. Visit our website for more information.
