Following the 1st EyesWeb Week, held in February 2006, InfoMus Lab is pleased to announce the 2nd EyesWeb Week, a utorial aiming at sharing with participants the experience of InfoMus Lab – Casa Paganini in scientific and technological evelopments as well as in artistic production matured around the EyesWeb project. The EyesWeb project focuses on different spects of non-verbal multimodal communication, including human full-body movement and musical gesture, and aims at nderstanding the affective and expressive content gesture conveys. The research project is centered around the EyesWeb XMI pen hardware and software platform, for developing real-time multimedia applications characterised by multimodal
interaction. Research and development in the EyesWeb project are partially supported by several EU IST-ICT and national projects.
This one-week tutorial aims at providing scientists, technicians, and artists with the opportunity to master and explore in detail he EyesWeb project and open platform. Lectures and experiments are structured in different tracks: a track is specifically esigned for dancers, choreographers, musicians, and content creators. A parallel track concerns the internals and core rchitecture of the new EyesWeb XMI platform and related libraries for multimodal analysis, and it is focused for computer ngineers and professionals. Participants will be introduced to the different aspects of the EyesWeb project, from design to mplementation of experience-centric mediated interactive systems to software and system engineering issues.
Previous artistic works participated and co-designed by InfoMus Lab (see www.infomus.org and www.casapaganini.org ) will e analysed and experienced with sample concrete implementations in EyesWeb. Sample hands-on and installations will be aced, also according to participants’ skills and demands.
