  • Conference Announcement SKILLS 2011, Montpellier France

    Dear Colleague,

    The EuroMov center at Montpellier-1 University in the south of France
    organizes a special conference in December 2011:

    SKILLS is the international conference of the SKILLS European Project
    (IST, Multimodal Interfaces, 2007-2011). It addresses fundamental and
    translational issues related to the acquisition, storage, maintenance and
    transfer of human skills using multimodal technologies such as virtual and
    augmented realities, human-machine interfaces, interaction design, and
    robotic systems. SKILLS aims at introducing a novel approach to
    technology-assisted skill acquisition or rehabilitation based on enactive
    and direct interaction between learner and technology. Perception-action
    and cognitive accelerators embedded in specific training protocols are
    used at various stages of learning in several (real) trainee – (virtual)
    trainer situations.

    In addition to keynote lectures, regular papers and posters, a large
    portion of the conference will be devoted to the presentation of hands-on
    demos illustrating the enactive approach to skill acquisition and
    transfer, not limited to but including the three following domains: Sport
    & Entertainement, Surgery & Rehabilitation, Industry & Manufacturing.

    The two keynote speakers are J.A. *Scott Kelso* (Florida Atlantic
    University, FL, USA) and *Stefan Schaal* (University of Southern
    California, CA, USA).

    The conference will be held at the CORUM International Convention Center,
    December 15-16, 2011, in the beautiful city of Montpellier in the
    Languedoc-Roussillon region.

    Deadline for paper submission is June 15, 2011.
