Workshop on Multimodal Human - Robot Interfaces
2010 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation
May 3, 2010, Anchorage, Alaska
This full-day workshop will provide an overview of the most recent advances about human-robot multimodal interfaces and it will explore new directions in the field, with a particular focus on interfaces for disabled people. The workshop will form an ideal environment for the emerging community to meet and exchange ideas.
The full information about the workshop (including the preliminary program) is available in the workshop web: http://nbio.umh.es/vr2/eventos/icra2010/home.html

Topics considered within this workshop include, but are not limited to the following ones:
-Haptic-based Multimodal Interfaces

-Gestures-based Human-Robot Interfaces

-Ocular-based Multimodal Interfaces

-Lastest Technologies in Human-Robot Interfaces

-Integration of Brain-Computer Interfaces in Human-Robot Interfaces

-Human-Robot Interfaces for Disabled People

-Applications of Multimodal Human-Robot Interfaces
