Ircam: UMR9912 (CNRS, Sorbonne Universités, Ircam)

The project is coordinated by Frederic Bevilacqua (IRCAM DR), head of the team "Sound Music Movement Interaction" of the UMR STMS Ircam-CNRS-Sorbonne Université. His team is among the leaders in movement-based interactive systems for creative applications and movement sonification. He co-authored more than 120 scientific publications and 5 patents. He was keynote or invited speaker at several international conferences such as the ACM TEI’13. In 2006 he was the co-chair of the International conference New Interfaces for Musical Expression and the co-creator in 2014 of MOCO, the international conference on Movement and Computing. He has a large experience in collaborative scientific projects (recent projects include ANR CoSiMa, H2020 Rapid-Mix, H2020 MusicBricks, FP7 Skat-VG). He already led two ANR projects, Interlude (2008-2011) and Legos (2011-2015). In 2013, he received the award “prix ANR du Numérique” (category Societal Impact, 2013) for the coordination of the Interlude project.

Ex)Situ Team, LISN (ex-LRI)
LISN: UMR 9015 (CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay, INRIA)

The LRI-Inria team Ex)Situ is a world-leading team in the field of HCI, gathering 6 faculty members (including associate, full professors, CNRS and INRIA research scientists). The team involved two running ERC advanced grants and large-impact projects such as DIGISCOPE. Their research outcomes are published in class A conferences such as CHI and UIST. They hosted the CHI conference in 2013 in Paris (+3000 attendees). Within the field of HCI, the team is recognized for their extensive work on theoretical concepts of HCI shedding lights on unified principles of HCI, human-machine co-adaptation phenomena, and machine-mediated human empowerment. Within the project, Baptiste Caramiaux (CNRS CR1) brings an expertise in sensorimotor learning in interactive systems and movement models (capitalizing on previous project H2020 MIM); Sarah Fdili Alaoui (MdC, certified in Laban Movement Analysis) brings expertise in movement practices and user-centred design; Wendy Mackay (DR Inria) and Michel Beaudouin-Lafon (Professor), world-leading researchers in HCI, will their bring expertise in user-centred methodologies and in Engineering of Interactive Systems.

LISN: UMR 9015 (CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay, INRIA)

The AMI group is at the forefront of research in interaction situations beyond the keyboard that involve people in interaction with complex and dynamic environments. The group is composed of 9 permanent researchers and faculty members, for a total of 25 people. Their research covers a large range of interaction paradigms and application contexts (gestural and ambient interaction, internet of things, visualization) for a wide spectrum of target populations (disabled people, low vision & blind people, aging populations, people with motor disabilities). Within the project, Jules Françoise (CNRS CR2) brings an expertise in computational models of human movements and in user-centered approaches to machine learning for HCI applications. Yacine Bellik (MdC HDR HC) is specialized in the development and evaluation of multimodal interaction and interaction techniques for people with sensory-motor disabilities and has already been involved in national and european projects.
