International Workshop on Multi-Scale Movement Technologies



The workshop will be held on October 25-29, in conjunction with ICMI 2020 (ACM ICMI 2020 International Workshop on Multi-Scale Movement Technologies, held in Utrecht, the Netherlands). 


This workshop aims at stimulating submissions on novel computational models and systems for the automated detection, measurement, and prediction of movement qualities from behavioural signals, based on multi-layer parallel processes at non-linearly stratified temporal dimensions. Contributions from computational models, multimodal systems, experiments on the above mentioned core topics, as well as application scenarios,including e.g., healing, therapy and rehabilitation, entertainment,performing arts (music, dance) and active experience of multimedia cultural content, are welcome.  



Specific topics include but are not limited to the following:

·     Multi-layer and multi-temporal scale automated movement analysis and prediction

·     Cognitive models of segmentation

·     Multi-time multimodal systems 

·     Multi-temporal scale automated movement segmentation 

·     Multi-time models of entrainment and non-verbal social signals 

·     Individual and group motor signature 

·     Cognitive neuroscience models of movement perception and prediction 

·     Applications in therapy and rehabilitation 

·     Multi-temporal scale automated movement segmentation 

·     Applications in performing arts 

·     Applications in active experience of multimedia cultural content
