Last Call for participation to the 8th International Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces; July 2nd - July 27th, 2012; Supélec (Metz, France) 

Registration still open until the 15th of May.

After the previous workshops which had an impressive success record and had proven the viability and usefulness of this original workshop, the 8th edition will take place in Supélec (Metz, France). eNTERFACE workshops aim at establishing a tradition of collaborative, localized research and development work by gathering, in a single place, a team of senior project leaders in multimodal interfaces, researchers, and

(undergraduate) students, to work on a pre-specified list of challenges, for

4 weeks. Participants are organized in teams, attached to specific projects, working on free software. Each week will typically consist of working sessions by the teams on their respective projects plus a tutorial given by an invited senior researcher and a presentation of the results achieved by each project group. The last week will be devoted to writing an article on the results obtained by the teams plus a big session where all the groups will present their achievements.

This year, participants will be provided with an especially great technical infrastructure, the SmartRoom. In addition to basic network infrastructure and internet access, robots (Nao, Parrot drone, Koala, Rovio and Bioloid), multimedia devices (2d and 3d cameras, Kinect, array of microphones and even an holophonic room) and sensors (brain computer interfaces, eyetrackers and some biomedical sensors) will be available for the projects. For more details, see the website.

Senior researchers, PhD, MS, or undergraduate students are now invited to submit an application for participation at eNTERFACE'12. All those interested in participating at the workshop should send their application by emailing the organizing committee at The content of the application can be found on the website of the summer school (  The deadline is fixed at the 30th of April. Applicants can choose up to three projects ordered by preference (see the website for the description of the projects and available positions in each of them). 

Selection of the applicants will be carried out by the project leaders.
