Casa Paganini – InfoMus Lab

in collaboration with the Openinterface Foundation, the EU IST CALLAS

and the EU ICT SAME Projects





the 5th Intl. Summer Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces

Genova, Italy, July 13th – August 7th, 2009

Call for Participation


The eNTERFACE 2009 Workshop is being organized this summer in Genova,

Italy, from July 13th to August 7th, 2009. The Workshop will be held

at Casa Paganini – InfoMus Lab (www.casapaganini.org), DIST-University

of Genova.


The eNTERFACE Workshops present an opportunity of collaborative

research and software development by gathering, in a single place, a

team of senior project leaders in multimodal interfaces, PhD students,

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

challenges, for the duration of four weeks. Participants are organized

in teams, assigned to specific projects. eNTERFACE’09 will also

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.


Outcome of synergy and success stories of past eNTERFACE Workshops

held in Mons, Belgium (2005), Dubrovnik, Croatia (2006), Istanbul,

Turkey (2007), and Paris, France (2008), can be seen at
