4TU Humans & Technology co-sponsored the 22th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI2020), held virtually 25-29 Oct 2020, the Netherlands. ICMI is the premier international forum for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction, interfaces, and system development. Quite some 4TU-H&T members were involved in the organization of this conference acting as General Chairs, the Local Chairs, the Virtual Chais and the Doctoral Consortium Chair.
The 4TU Human&Technology group has organized a two-day workshop on Explainable Artificial Intelligence and Conversational Agents on 24 and 25 of January 2019, in Delft, the Netherlands. Over 70 people had registered for the workshop. The program included presentations of the three Technical Universities of Delft, Twente and Eindhoven, as well as of the Vrije Universiteit, University Utrecht, Erasmus University and University of Amsterdam. Special Keynote speaker was prof Ana Paiva from the University of Lisboa, Portugal, who presented a very interesting talk entitled Robots that Listen to People's Hearts: The Role of Emotions in the Communication between Humans and Social Robots. The success of the workshop was an impulse for further cooperation between universities and researchers in the field of Human-Robot interaction.
