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

After the previous workshops which had an impressive success record and had
proven the viability and usefulness of this hands-on workshop, the
9thedition will take place in 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, which are expected to be published by *Springer*, IFIP
AICT series (indexed in *Web of Science*).

Senior researchers, PhD, MS, or undergraduate students are now invited to
submit an application for participation at eNTERFACE'13. All those
interested in participating at the workshop should send their application
