About MOCO 2018
******************************************************************************

MOCO is an interdisciplinary conference that explores how computer science and
technology can contribute to a deeper understanding of human movement
practice,
to support and facilitate movement expression and communication, and to design
and develop new paradigms for interacting with computers through movement
(e.g., movement interfaces). This requires to tackle computational challenges,
including modelling, representation, segmentation, recognition,
classification,
and generation of movement information. To this aim, an interdisciplinary
approach to movement understanding, ranging from biomechanics to embodied
cognition, to the phenomenology of bodily experience as well as contributions
from the performing arts is needed. We invite submissions from a wide range
of disciplines including, but not limited to: Human-Machine Interaction,
Artificial Intelligence, Affective Computing, Social Signal Processing,
Machine
Learning, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Psychology, Philosophy,
Anthropology,
Sports Sciences, Dance, Music, Visual Arts, Games, Healthcare, and Animation.

******************************************************************************
Program
******************************************************************************

MOCO will offer a wide range of works. Besides papers presented orally and
as posters, practice works such as demos, performances, games, artistic works
and movement workshops (in which participants take part in a guided movement
activity) will be available for participants.

A detailed program will be published at:

Connected events: the 6th EyesWeb Week
******************************************************************************

This year the MOCO Conference will be connected with the 6th EyesWeb Week,
held at Casa Paganini – InfoMus, Genoa, Italy, just after the conference,
on July 2-6, 2018.

The EyesWeb Week is an intensive tutorial aiming at sharing with participants
the experience of the Casa Paganini – InfoMus Research Centre in the EyesWeb
project. The main focus is on the EyesWeb XMI open software platform (freely
available at www.casapaganini.org) for scientific and technological research
and development of innovative multimodal interfaces, systems, and applications
(including distributed and mobile apps) in a growing number of fields, such as
therapy and rehabilitation, independent living, artistic production, active
experience of cultural heritage, and education.

The EyesWeb Week aims at providing scientists, engineers, psychologists,
therapists, musicians, dancers, artists, and other professionals with the
opportunity to master and explore in detail the EyesWeb project and open
software platform. The program encompasses lectures, hands-on, and special
sessions on selected topics. Participation is free.
