The International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces for Skills Transfer, promoted by the European SKILLS Integrated Project, will be held in Bilbao (Spain) on 15th-16th December, 2009.
SKILLS09 is a major International Conference and a clear opportunity for researchers in the field of multimodal interfaces to capture, store and transfer human skills. These interfaces, based on Enactive Interfaces and Systems, are a new generation of human-computer interfaces that are based on the concept of Enactive Knowledge, that is the knowledge acquired by doing. This learning process is also referred to as enacting or enaction in transferring skills. These new interfaces make old applications more intelligent and more responsive, and create new applications. The introduction of this concept in Human and Computer Interfaces (HCI) has created a multidisciplinary research community capable of integrating theoretical models with interaction paradigms and with advanced technologies such as visualization systems, haptics and spatial audio.
This conference will present and discuss recent developments in the application of the concept of Enaction for the transfer of manual human skills.Please visit the Conference website at http://www.ceit.es/skills2009 for more information.
A Call for Papers and Hands-on Demos has been launched and you can find all the related details here.
Papers are welcome in all topics related to skills conceptualization and transfer processes, from skill capturing to skill rendering and assessment.
