Gesture Controlled Audio Systems (ConGas) - COST Action 287

The Cost287-ConGAS Action intends to contribute to the advancement and to the development of musical gesture data analysis and to capture aspects connected to the control of digital sound and music processing. Cost287-ConGAS is a COST-IST action funded by the European Commission.
The main objective of this COST Action is to significantly contribute to the advancement of the development of different gesture data analysis and capture/actuation aspects connected to the control of digital sound and music processing.The overall goal is to enhance the naturalness of human-computer interaction through more cognitive and intuitive interfaces in a field like digital sound production that requires an amount of communication precision and detail which is not usual in other Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) systems. This poses several challenges to the design and control of interaction between systems and humans where sound production is involved.
