Call for papers
TiGeR 2013 is an interdisciplinary event for all researchers working on gesture who want to meet and exchange their ideas and latest results. TiGeR 2013 hopes to bring together researchers working on gesture from the social sciences and humanities as well as researchers from computer science and engineering, in order to further our understanding of human gesture production and improve the development of interactive systems that exploit gesture as a means of interacting with machines.
We invite submissions on all topics related to gesture production and perception. Specific topics include, but are not limited to, the following list.
- Gesture and speech or other natural modalities
