DICE aims at providing an updated state of the art over most advanced ICT theories and techniques that are relevant for developing interactive and cognitive environments in the context of EU Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate program. DICE will attract researchers and industries from EMJD program and all over the world for exchanging knowledge on the development of cutting-edge ICT technologies to design and implement – typically in multi-disciplinary work teams – innovative solutions that take into account the needs of the end users and the expectations of the stakeholders which will have broad economic and social impacts on the society.

DICE will present new ICT methods (e.g. signal processing, user centered design) with improved performances which allow designing systems able to provide more effective services in real and virtual life. Scientific papers will be presented on areas of user centered design, machine learning, cryptography, video-processing including tracking and detection, ambient assisted living, facial biometrics, emotion recognition, serious gaming, distributed consensus, bio-inspired systems, and human interactions recognition. New developments will be exhibited on innovative concepts, algorithms, and services to enable multi-user interactions in multi-sensor physical environments for improving quality of life, supporting human everyday tasks and fulfilling urgent society needs. Scientific lectures and keynote speeches will be given on multi-disciplinary topics. Social activities and industrial visits will further enhance the knowledge exchange, the interaction among researchers, and the interaction between university researchers and leading ICT industrial partners.

The DICE Summer School consists of keynote speeches, distinguished lectures and presentation and exhibition of EMJD-ICE research activities. A visit to Océ  will be organized.
