The International Gesture Workshop is a forum for the exchange of ideas
and research currently in progress across disciplines. It aims to
encourage multidisciplinary collaboration by providing a platform for
participants to share, discuss and critique both research in progress
and more completed research with a multidisciplinary audience. You are
invited to submit work to be presented by paper, poster, or
demonstration and to attend the workshop. In addition to welcoming
submission of work by established researchers, it is the tradition of
the GW series of workshops to encourage submission of student work at
various stages of completion.

SCOPE AND TOPICS
Under the focus of human-computer communication, the workshop will
encompass all aspects of gestural and sign language interaction,
including but not restricted to:

GESTURES AND SIGN LANGUAGE IN HUMAN-MACHINE INTERACTION
* Automatic recognition and interpretation of gestures and sign language

* Automatic analysis and synthesis of gestures and sign language
* Computational representation of gestures and sign language, from
perceptual level to semantic level
* User issues, usability studies, application paradigms
* Gesture and human-movement tracking techniques
* System architectures
* Applications and demonstrator systems

NATURE OF GESTURE AND SIGN LANGUAGE
* Gestural and sign-language communication
* Gesture and sign language perception and production
* Modelling and analysis techniques
* Coding techniques

MULTIMODALITY
* Co-verbal gestures
* Fusion of gestures and other modalities: Architectures, level of
fusion, representation...
* Temporal relations between gestures, speech and other modalities
* Applications

including submission instructions, the list of members of the
international scientific committee, etc.

PUBLICATION:
In line with the practice of previous gesture workshops, accepted
participants will be invited to submit their papers for publication in a
subsequent peer-reviewed publication of high-quality. In previous years,
this has been published by Springer (see below).

PREVIOUS GESTURE WORKSHOPS:
York, United Kingdom, March 1996 http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/gw96
Bielefeld, Germany, September 1997
http://www.TechFak.Uni-Bielefeld.DE/GW97/
Gif-sur-Yvette, France, March 1999 http://www.limsi.fr/GW99/

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:
Submissions will be electronic and the preferred format will be MS word
or rtf. The language should be English, the language of the workshop.
Submissions can be in the form of papers, up to 12 pages. They can also
be in the form of posters or demonstrations, described in 2 pages. As
the conference is multidisciplinary, where possible, language should be
used that will be understood across disciplines i.e. reduce the use of
jargon to a minimum. Details will be published on the website in
September (http://www.zeric.co.uk/gw2001).


HOW TO GET THERE: City University is easily accessible by all forms of
public transport. Travelling from either London Gatwick or London
Heathrow is quick and straightforward. Its central location in relation
to many of London’s attractions makes it an additionally interesting
venue for the workshop. http://www.city.ac.uk/city/info/travel.htm
