The 18th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction was held in Tokyo. I was one of the mentors for the doctoral consortium this year. We also held our 2nd Workshop on Advancements in Social Signal Processing for Multimodal Interaction ASSP4MI@ICMI2016, organized by Dirk Heylen, Mohamed Chetouani, Toyoaki Nishida, and myself.

Back from Interspeech 2016!

Posted on

This year’s Interspeech 2016 was in San Francisco. I also attended the WOCCI workshop (Workshop on Child-Computer Interaction). Both were great! I am one of the Area Chairs (Analysis of Paralinguistics in Speech and Language) for Interspeech 2017. Hope to see you next year in Stockholm!

The 12th Summer Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces eNTERFACE’16 was a success!

Posted on

Together with Dennis Reidsma, Dirk Heylen, and Vanessa Evers, I organized eNTERFACE’16 this year at the DesignLab, University of Twente. For 4 weeks long, students and researchers from all over the world came together in the DesignLab at the University of Twente, hosted by Human Media Interaction, to work on 9 different projects on multimodal interfaces. In total, there were 70 participants from 16 different countries ranging from the USA to Malaysia and from the UK to Australia. We had 3 invited speakers (Kristiina Jokinen, Anton Nijholt, and Michel Valstar) and courses on Deep Learning, the Social Signal Interpretation framework and Academic English. I had fun hosting the 12th eNTERFACE’16, it was my pleasure! Thank you all for attending!
