Multimodal interaction for mobile devices

ETSI, in collaboration with the Open Interface project (European project FP6-35182), invites you to a workshop on Standardization of Multimodal Interaction on Mobile Devices, to be held at ETSI Headquarters, in Sophia Antipolis, France, on the 18th and 19th of November 2008.

18 November 2008 - 19 November 2008

Multimodal interaction on mobile devices allows the users to interact using different and
combined interaction modalities such as 3D gesture, speech commands, tactile and sound feedback, pressing buttons. There is a high potential for new interaction modalities and multimodal interaction on mobile devices since it enables the user to access functions on the mobile devices while walking (on the move) as well as it allows the user to choose the modalities according to her/his changing context of use (running in the street, sitting in a noisy environment, etc).

Based on current and future mobile technologies, the workshop will cover all aspects of multimodal interaction on mobile devices including new interaction techniques, design activities, development aspects and evaluation issues.

It will aim to address subjects with a potential for future standardization at ETSI. An overview of already existing work on standardization will start the workshop in order to avoid duplication and fragmentation of the work.Registration: Online registration for this workshop is now open. Attendance at the workshop is free and is open to non-members of ETSI and of the OpenInterface project.
