Last chance! CfP: IoT2016 - 6th International Conference on the Internet of Things in Stuttgart, Germany

Call for Papers: IoT2016 - 6th International Conference on the Internet of
Things
Full Paper Deadline: June 1, 2016
Workshop Proposal Deadline: May 27, 2016
Conference Date and Location: November 7-9, 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany
http://www.iot-conference.org/iot2016/call-for-papers/

The paradigm of the Internet of Things has become a core element of the
Internet. Low-cost sensing and actuation is available to everyone. It
allows seamless information exchange and networked interactions of physical
and digital objects. Thanks to the wide availability of smartphones, not
only companies but also consumers are part of this networked world. This
interconnectivity together with large-scale data processing, advanced
machine learning, robotics and new fabrication techniques steadily brings
innovation and business models of the digital space into the physical
world. All of this indicates that we are at the brink of another industrial
revolution.

Backed by the strong support from industry and leading academic
institutions, the International Conference on Internet of Things (IoT) has
become the premier gathering place where visionary, ground-breaking
research meets leading industry experts in the field of IoT. In previous
years it was held in Seoul, Boston, Woxi, Tokyo, and Zürich.

IoT2016 is seeking for original, high impact research papers on all topics
related to the development and social adoption of the Internet of Things.
Papers are peer-reviewed and selected based on technical novelty, integrity
of the analysis and social impacts and practical relevance. Recommended
topics of submission are as follows, but not limited to.

MOBILECH 16 CFP deadline May 27th

Call for papers: Mobile-CH 16: Workshop on Mobile access to Cultural Heritage

( <http://mobilech2016.di.unito.it/> http://mobilech2016.di.unito.it/)

Mobile-CH will be the meeting point between state of the art in Cultural Heritage (CH) research and
personalization – using any kind of technology, while focusing on mobile scenarios, to enhance the
personal experience in cultural heritage sites. The workshop is aimed at bringing together researchers
and practitioners who are working on various aspects of cultural heritage and are interested in
exploring the potential of state of the art of mobile technology (onsite as well as online) to enhance the
CH visit experience. The expected result of the workshop is a multidisciplinary research agenda that
will inform future research directions and hopefully, forge some research collaborations.

Cultural heritage has traditionally been a privileged area for personalization research. Visitors come
to cultural heritage sites willing to experience and learn new things, usually without a clear idea of
what to expect. CH sites are typically rich in objects and information, much more than the visitor can
absorb during the limited time of a visit. The evolution and convergence of technologies for managing and
integrating Open Data, and for delivering mobile services, open new opportunities for mobile
personalization research, which has the potential to improve the presentation of information, the
exploration of content and the discovery of events interesting for the specific user/group, the
collaboration among users having similar interests, as well as the adaptation to heterogeneous user
contexts and devices. It could improve the interaction and experience of visitors both on CH websites and
with CH guide systems. Visitors to CH sites differ and their visit experience involves a combination of
the physical, the personal, and the socio-cultural context and identity-related aspects. Hence they
may benefit from individualized support that takes into account contextual and personal attributes. 

Personalization also relates to collaboration in the preservation, enrichment and access to cultural
heritage by considering crowd-sourcing techniques, based on   active involvement of a broad range of
people to enhance the management of cultural heritage information.

This workshop is inherently interdisciplinary and integrates computer and information sciences with

Intetain 2016 - Call for Participation

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
INTETAIN 2016
8th International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment
June 28-30, 2016 - Utrecht, The Netherlands
http://www.intetain.org/2016

Scope
Intelligent technologies have shaped and will continue to shape the way we experience entertainment.
Novel devices and novel interaction paradigms present opportunities for richer interactions. At the
same time, the adoption of such technology by humans presents interesting challenges. The development
of interactive entertainment applications therefore requires thorough knowledge from multiple
research domains (computer graphics, human factors, signal processing, artificial intelligence,
etc.). When successfully combined, novel interaction paradigms can impact the entertainment industry.

The 8th International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment (INTETAIN
2016) will address issues concerning relationships between human-computer interaction and
entertainment. The objective of the conference is to attract state-of-art contributions that address
the broad challenges faced in the development and use of interactive technologies to create
entertainment content. The goal is to explore and discuss innovative studies, technologies and
applications aimed at new interface paradigms.

Keynote speakers
The conference will feature keynote talks by Prof. Elisabeth André (Augsburg University) and Dr. Mark
Riedl (Georgia Tech). We will also have a more interactive talk by JobJorisenMarieke, the
Oscar-nominated creators of animated shorts: http://www.intetain.org/2016/show/keynotes

CFP (deadline extended to June 10) - MHMC 2016 - International Workshop on Multimodal Interaction in Industrial Human-Machine Communication

Call for Papers (apologies for multiple copies)
-----------------------------------------------------

MHMC 2016 – INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON MULTIMODAL INTERACTION IN 
INDUSTRIAL HUMAN-MACHINE COMMUNICATION
(In connection with the 21st IEEE International Conference on Emerging 
Technologies and Factory Automation)

September 6, 2016, Berlin
http://www.etfa2016.org/etfa-2016/workshops
http://etfa2016.org/images/track-cfp/MHMC_CfP.pdf

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

Nowadays, industrial environments are full of sophisticated 
computer-controlled machines. In addition, recent developments in 
pervasive and ubiquitous computing provide a further support for 
advanced activity control. Even if the exploitation of these 
technologies is very often committed to specialized workers, who have 
been purposely trained to use complex equipments, easy and effective 
interaction is a key factor that can bring many benefits – from faster 
task completion to error prevention, cognitive load reduction and higher 
employee satisfaction.

Multimodal interaction means using “non-conventional” input and/or 
output tools and modalities to communicate with a device. The main 
purpose of multimodal interfaces is to combine both multiple input modes 
— usually more “natural” than traditional input devices, such as touch, 
speech, hand gestures, head/body movements and eye gaze — and solutions 
in which different output modalities are used in a coordinated manner —
