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

Following the success of the previous eNTERFACE workshops held in Mons (Belgium, 2005), Dubrovnik (Croatia, 2006), Istanbul (Turkey, 2007), Paris (France, 2008), Genova (Italy, 2009), Amsterdam (Netherlands, 2010), Plzen (Czech Republic, 2011), Metz (France, 2012), Lisbon (Portugal, 2013), Bilbao (Spain, 2014), Mons (Belgium, 2015), Twente (Netherlands 2016), the Digital Creativity Centre (CCD) of the Portuguese Catholics University have the pleasure to host eNTERFACE’17, the 13th Summer Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces, in Porto, Portugal from July 3rd to 28th, 2017.

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.

The eNTERFACE’17 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://ift.tt/2hLMVvI). The proposals should contain a full description of the project’s objectives, required hardwares/softwares and relevant literatures.

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 CITAR Journal. CITAR Journal was recently (July 2016) accepted for inclusion in a new index of the Web of Science (WoS) Core Collection: the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), and has also been accepted for indexing by Elsevier’s Scopus.
