The International Gesture Workshop is an interdisciplinary event for
researchers working on gestural interaction, who want to meet and
exchange their ideas and newest research. GW 2011 aims to bring
together researchers from computer science, engineering, and the
humanities in order to connect recent theoretical discoveries about
the embodied bases of human verbal and nonverbal communication with
approaches taken to developing interactive systems that exploit
gesture as a means of interacting with machines. The workshop will be
the 9th in the Gesture Workshop series initiated in 1996.

Invited Speakers:

Sylvie Gibe (UBS, FR)

Stefan Kopp (Uni-Bielefeld, DE)

Petros Maragos (NTUA, GR) 

Scope and Topics 
Under the focus of gesture-based human-computer interaction, we invite
submissions of original work that addresses, but is not limited to,
one or more of the following aspects:

Concepts, models, architectures 

  a.. Theoretical aspects of gestural communication and interaction
  b.. Gesture and speech, gaze, or other natural modalities
  c.. Gesture and embodied cognition
  d.. Gesture and sociality
  e.. Gesture and multimodal dialogue
  f.. Gesture expressivity
  g.. Gesture development and learning
  h.. Sensori-motor aspects of gesture
  i.. Sign language processing
  j.. Gesture recognition and analysis
  k.. Gesture production and synthesis
  l.. Fusion and fission of gesture with other modalities
  m.. Systematic and idiosyncratic aspects of gesture

  a.. User issues, usability studies, application paradigms
  b.. Vision-based gesture recognition
  c.. Gesture in virtual and augmented reality
  d.. Gesture in embodied conversational agents
  e.. Gesture in mobile computing
  f.. Gesture in tangible and haptic interfaces
  g.. Gesture for gaming and entertainment
  h.. Gesture for audio-visual applications
  i.. Gesture for therapy and rehabilitation
  j.. Gesture for music and performing arts
  k.. Gesture for education

Submission Procedure and Publication 
Authors are encouraged to submit original scientific contributions to
GW 2011 in the form of extended abstracts of up to 2 pages. Abstract
headings must include title, authors, and keywords, according to
Springer formatting guidelines (see example document). Upon review and
acceptance by the GW 2011 PC, authors will be asked to present their
work either orally, as a poster, or in form of a technical
demonstration (where applicable). Submitted abstracts must be in
English and should, to the extent possible, use language that will be
understood across disciplines i.e. avoids unnecessary jargon. 

Submissions should be sent electronically in PDF to the following
e-mail address: gw2011 at

Presenting authors will be invited after the workshop to submit a full
paper on the topic of their talk. All papers will be peer-reviewed and
compiled into a high-quality publication typically published by
Springer-Verlag (see list of previous proceedings).

Important Dates 
Submission of extended abstracts: December 15, 2010 
Notification of acceptance/rejection: January 30, 2011 
Submission of final versions of extended abstracts: March 15, 2010 
Workshop: May 25-27, 2011 

About the Venue 
GW 2011 will be held in Athens, Greece. The event will be hosted in
one of the oldest university buildings of Athens at the heart of the
city, close to all sites of interest (ancient Greek and Roman city
parts, Byzantine monuments, museums, cultural centres or just shopping
districts). Athens is connected to the world via Eleftherios Venizelos
International Airport.
