Casa Paganini - InfoMus Lab, DIST - University of Genova, invites project proposals for eNTERFACE'09, the 5th summer workshop on multimodal interfaces, to be held in Genova, Italy, from July 13th to August 7th, 2009.

Following the tremendous success of the previous eNTERFACE workshops

(www.enterface.net) held in Mons, Belgium (2005), Dubrovnik, Croatia (2006), Istanbul, Turkey (2007), and Paris, France (2008), eNTERFACE'09 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'09 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 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.
