The Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (AERFAI) and the Mathematics and Computer Science Department of UIB are organising the sixth international Conference on Articulated Motion and Deformable Objects (AMDO 2010) that will take place in Puerto de Andratx, Mallorca. This conference is the natural evolution of AMDO's previous workshops. The new goal of this conference is to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers working directly in the areas covered by the main tracks. The new perceptual user interfaces and the emerging technologies increase the relationship between areas involved with human-computer interaction. The perspective of the AMDO 2010 conference will be to strengthen the relationship between the many areas that have as key point the study of the human body using computer technologies as the main tool.

It is a great opportunity to encourage links between research in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics, advanced multimedia applications and multimodal interfaces that share common problems and frequently use similar techniques or tools. In this particular edition the related topics are divided in several parallel tracks, including the topics above proposed.

AMDO 2010 will consist in three days of lecture sessions, both regular and invited presentations, a poster session and international tutorials. The conference fee (aprox. 400 EUR) includes a social program (conference dinner, coffee breaks, snacks and cultural activities). Students and IAPR members can register at a reduced fee.


Prof. Dr. Elisabeth André, Lehrstuhl für Multimedia-Konzepte und Anwendungen, Institut für Informatik Universität Augsburg, Germany.
Prof. Taku Komura, Institute for Perception, Action and Behaviour School of Informatics University of Edinburgh, UK.
Prof. Enrique Vidal, Multimodal Interaction: Approaches and Applications PRHLT/ITIUPV, Spain.

TOPICS INCLUDE (but not restricted to):

Track 1: Advanced Computer Graphics (Human Modelling & Animation)
Track 2: Human Motion (Analysis, Tracking, 3D Reconstruction & Recognition)
Track 3: Multimodal User Interaction (VR & AR, Speech, Biometrics)
Track 4: Affective Interfaces (recognition and interpretation of emotions, ECAs - Embodied Conversational Agents in HCI)


Papers should describe original and unpublished work about the above or closely related topics. Please submit your paper electronically at out website (see URL below) using the software provided. All submissions should be in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format. The AMDO2010 secretariat must receive your paper before March 12th, 2010, 17:00 GMT (London time). NO extended deadline will be given!..

Up to 10 A4 pages will be considered. All papers submitted will be subjected to a blind review process by at least three members of the program committee. The initial paper must not provide names and affiliation, and should include a title, a 150-word abstract, keywords and paper manuscript. Accepted papers will appear in the LNCS Springer-Verlag international proceedings that will be published and distributed to all participants at the workshop. For more details and news, visit our web page. Selected papers will be nominated to be published in an extended version in a newsletter with impact index.

Upload submissions at: Springer Online Conference Service . If you experience any problems with the system, please don't hesitate to contact the administrators for help.

N.B. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and to present the communication at the conference, if accepted.
