GW 2011: The 9th International Gesture Workshop
Gesture in Embodied Communication and Human-Computer Interaction
May 25-27, 2011, Athens, Greece


a bullet The International Gesture Workshop is an interdisciplinary event, where researchers interested in understanding gesture and using it for human-computer interaction meet to present and exchange their ideas and newest research. Initiated in 1996, the Gesture Workshops have been held roughly every second year, with fully reviewed post-proceedings typically published by Springer-Verlag. GW 2011 is the 9th workshop in the GW series and will be held at at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.

Gesture in Embodied Communication and Human-Computer Interaction

a bullet GW 2011 aims to bring together people from different research strands that concern themselves with gesture-based communication, but tend to take different perspectives in doing so. For researchers in computer science, engineering, or human-computer interaction, the workshop will provide a well-known forum to present recent approaches to using gesture or sign language as a means of interacting with machines. In addition, GW 2011 addresses researchers from Linguistics as well as the cognitive, neuro and computer sciences to bring to bear their new theoretical insights into the embodied bases of human verbal and nonverbal communication. We thus invite researchers from both realms to come and meet at GW 2011 in order to exchange ideas, connect discoveries, and further the advancement of gesture-based human-machine interaction.
