Gesture in Human-Computer Interaction

International workshop series continued since 1996


Welcome! A note to visitors of this website:

The international gesture workshops are interdisciplinary events for those researching gesture-based communication and wishing to meet and exchange ideas across disciplines. A focus of these events is a shared interest in using gesture and sign language in human-computer interaction. The 1996 gesture workshop in York, UK, organized by Philip Harling and Alistair Edwards is considered the starting event. Henceforth international gesture workshops have been held roughly every second year, with fully reviewed post-proceedings typically published by Springer-Verlag until 2011.

From 19 - 21 June, 2013 the Tilburg Centre for Cognition and Communication (TiCC) hosted a combined meeting of the 10th International Gesture Workshop (GW) and the 3rd Gesture and Speech in Interaction (GESPIN) conference at Tilburg, The Netherlands, with over 100 delegates from 15 countries participating. There are no plans to publish post-proceedings but there may be a special issue of the Gesture journal. Watch the TiGeR.

This website is kept as an archival reference and portal about the workshop series and their proceedings. It will hopefully be helpful to those wishing to learn about an interdisciplinary and international gesture community and their activities in human-computer interaction.
