eNTERFACE'16 at the University of Twente

July 18th - August 12th, 2016 in DesignLab, University of Twente
4TU Delft
4TU Eindhoven
4TU Twente
4TU Wageningen

The 12th Summer Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces, also known as eNTERFACE’16, was hosted by the Human Media Interaction group from the University of Twente (July 18th - August 12th, 2016). Four weeks long, students and researchers from all over the world came together in the DesignLab at the University of Twente to work on 9 different projects on multimodal interfaces. In total, there were about 70 participants from 16 different countries ranging from the USA to Malaysia and from the UK to Australia.


Our three invited speakers, Kristiina Jokinen (University of Helsinki), Anton Nijholt (University of Twente/Imagineering Institute), and Michel Valstar (University of Nottingham), gave excellent talks about eye gaze in human-robot interaction, computational humor and facial expression analysis respectively. Gwenn Englebienne (University of Twente) gave a tutorial on Deep Learning, Johannes Wagner (University of Augsburg) gave a tutorial on the Social Signal Interpretation framework, and Emer Gilmartin (Trinity College Dublin) gave seminars on Academic English.

Universities in the Netherlands joined eNTERFACE’16 as well. Human Media Interaction (UT) participated with their project “Heterogeneous Multi-Modal Mixing” focusing on realizing fluent, multiparty, human-robot interaction. And TU Delft led a project on embodied conversational interfaces for the elderly user, while students from TU/e and Leiden University participated in several projects.


Thanks go to 4TU.Humans&Technology and CTIT who sponsored eNTERFACE’16 and helped make this event a success! eNTERFACE’16 was organized by Khiet Truong, Dennis Reidsma, Dirk Heylen, and Vanessa Evers.
