ICMI is the premier international forum for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction. Research presented at ICMI is diverse, contributing to areas such as user interfaces in automobiles, interactions with social robots, training for public speaking, evaluating mental health, etc.

The conference features world-renowned keynote speakers, strictly-reviewed papers for presentation, demonstrations/exhibits, workshops/tutorials, special sessions, grand challenges, and a doctoral consortium.

The conference attracts researchers in relevant areas of computing science (e.g., AI, machine learning, sensors, cognitive computing) and representatives from innovative companies at the forefront of technological development from around the world. Delegate numbers of around 200 people from a host of countries are typical.

Data Challenge

There are opportunities for forward thinking companies to engage directly with the conference delegates by setting a data challenge. Companies provide a dataset and set questions or define problems that participating delegates can use their specialised skill sets to solve. Companies can gain new insights into their own data sets, or new approaches to solving existing problems, whilst raising the profile of their brand, their career opportunities, and standing in the research community.

Exhibition Space

There are opportunities for research teams and companies to exhibit their work and products at the conference. Please contact Sidney D'Mello <sidney.dmello@colorado.edu> and Stefan Scherer <scherer@ict.usc.edu> to discuss your needs.
