Call for Projects | eNTERFACE`19 Summer Workshop in Ankara, Turkey

Computer Engineering Department of Bilkent University invites project proposals for eNTERFACE’19, the 15th Summer Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces, to be held in Ankara, Turkey, from July 8th to August 2nd, 2019.

Following the success of the previous eNTERFACE workshops held in Mons (Belgium, 2005), Dubrovnik (Croatia, 2006), Istanbul (Turkey, 2007), Paris (France, 2008), Genova (Italy, 2009), Amsterdam (Netherlands, 2010), Plzen (Czech Republic, 2011), Metz (France, 2012), Lisbon (Portugal, 2013), Bilbao (Spain, 2014), Mons (Belgium, 2015), Twente (Netherlands, 2016), Porto (Portugal, 2017), and Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium, 2018), eNTERFACE’19 aims at continuing and enhancing the tradition of collaborative, localized research and development work by gathering, in a single place, leading researchers in multimodal interfaces and students to work on specific projects for 4 complete weeks.


Gather a (partial) team and apply with a short project proposal on multimodal interfaces. When the proposal is accepted, a call for participants will be circulated, and people will apply to become a part of your project. You can specify desired skills in this call. You will evaluate the applicants and decide on the final team. The participants will come to the workshop for one month. There are no registration fees, and we have arranged cheap accommodation for the participants. Each participant is responsible from his or her own travel and subsistence. At the end of the workshop, project groups will prepare and present reports that will be gathered in proceedings, and extended reports will be gathered in a journal special issue (typically, Journal of Multimodal User Interfaces). You can check for past editions, and find project reports, open code and data of past projects.

The eNTERFACE workshop is a great opportunity to bring together researchers working on an international project, for testing new ideas, for integrating modules, for collecting new datasets, and for meeting new people. There will be some invited lectures and many social activities during the workshop.


This year’s special topics will be deep learning for behavior analysis and reinforcement learning. There will be seminars around those topics during the workshop.

Proposals should be submitted to the organizers Hamdi Dibeklioğlu ( and Elif Sürer ( They will be evaluated by eNTERFACE Steering Committee with respect to the suitability to the workshop goals and format. Authors of the accepted proposals will then be invited to build their teams.
