This is a very productive workshop for graduate students and advanced  
undergraduates interested in working with multimodal human-computer  
interfaces. The workshops are free but you are responsible for your  
travel, room and board expenses.

The official deadline for participation has passed but there may be  
an opportunity to still participate if you send your request ASAP to  
enterface at tel.fer.hr

In particular, we are looking for members to join our team:

> 6. An instrument of sound and visual creation driven by biological  
> signals (Coordinator: Prof. Benoit Macq, UCL Louvain La Neuve,  
> Belgium) Pursuing this first eNTERFACE workshop, this project aims  
> to use biophysical signals (EEG, EMG, ECG, EOG, etc…) analysis to  
> drive digital musical instruments, enhanced with a rich visual  
> feedback, and playable in real-time. This year, we will try to  
> improve the interaction musician-instrument by expanding the  
> mapping between biological signals and synthesis parameters.

Anyone who wants more information about this project or Enterface in  
general can contact me directly.
