Dear Stefan!
Is is possible to send the following information about the SKILLS  
conference on the robotic-worldwide newlist?
Thank you!

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 &  
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.
