**********************************************************************************************************************************

*The 9th International Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces; July 15th -
August 9th 2013; Lisbon (Portugal)*
**********************************************************************************************************************************

After the previous workshops, held in Mons (Belgium), Dubrovnik (Croatia),
Istanbul (Turkey), Paris (France), Genova (Italy), Amsterdam (The
Netherlands), Plzen (Czech Republic) and Metz (France) which had an
impressive success record and had proven the viability and usefulness of
this original workshop, the 9th edition will take place in the New
University of Lisbon (Portugal). 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. Proceedings are expected to be published by *Springer*,
IFIP AICT series (indexed in *Web of Science*).

The *eNTERFACE'13* committee now invites researchers to submit project
proposals that will be evaluated by the scientific committee. All the
information asked to submit a project is available on the website of the
workshop (http://eventos.fct.unl.pt/enterface13). The proposals should
contain a full description of the project's objectives, required
hardwares/softwares and relevant literatures. When submitting a project
proposal, a list of potential candidates can be proposed by the authors.
Although not exhaustive, the submitted projects can cover one or several of
the topics listed below. A special focus of this year is on assistive,
rehabilitation and educational technologies.

*Topics:*

- Presence and telepresence
- Teleoperation and telerobotics
- Assistive and rehabilitation technologies
- Human-robot and human-environments interactions in smart environments
- Game and serious game applications
- Multimodal interfaces for collaborative systems
- Multimodal signal analysis and synthesis
- Signal-level and meaning-level data fusion
- Usability in ubiquitous computing
- Intuitive interfaces and personalized systems in real and virtual
environments
- User, context and semantics aware self-learning and adapting systems
- Applications of multimodal interfaces

*Important dates:*

* January 12th, 2013: Reception of a 1 page Notification of Interest, with
a summary of project goals, work-packages and deliverables;

* February 2nd, 2013: Reception of the complete project proposal in the
format provided by the Author’s kit;

* February 17th, 2013: Notification of project acceptance; publication of
