EyesWeb XMI (for eXtended Multimodal Interaction) is the new version of the well-known EyesWeb platform. It has a main focus on multimodality and the main design target of this new release has been to improve the ability to process and correlate several streams of data. It has been used extensively to build a set of interactive systems for performing arts applications for Festival della Scienza 2006, Genoa, Italy. The purpose of this paper is to describe the developed installations as well as the new EyesWeb features that helped in their development.
