Call for Papers
The International Conference on Multimodal Interaction, ICMI 2011, will take place in Alicante (Spain), November 14-18, 2011, just after the ICCV 2011 (in Barcelona, Spain). ICMI is the fusion of the International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces and the Workshop on Machine Learning for Multimodal Interaction which, for the last two years held a combined event under the name ICMI-MLMI. Starting in this thirteenth edition the combined conference uses the new, shorter name.

ICMI is the premier international forum for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction, interfaces, and system development. The conference focuses on theoretical and empirical foundations, component technologies, and combined multimodal processing techniques that define the field of multimodal interaction analysis, interface design, and system development. ICMI 2011 will feature a single-track main conference which includes: keynote speakers, technical full and short papers (including oral and poster presentations), special sessions, demonstrations, exhibits and doctoral spotlight papers. The conference will be followed by workshops. The proceedings of ICMI 2011 will be published by ACM as part of their series of International Conference Proceedings.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Multimodal Interaction Processing
    Machine learning, pattern recognition and signal processing approaches for analysis and modeling of interaction, adaptation and multimodal input fusion and output generation, addressing any combinations of: vision, gaze, audio, speech, gestures, e-pen, haptic and tangible, bio-signals such as brain and EMG, etc.

  • Multimodal Interfaces
    Design issues, principles and best practices and authoring techniques for human-machine interfaces using any combinations of input and/or output multiple modalities.

  • Interactive systems and applications
    Mobile and ubiquitous systems, automotive and navigation, human-robot interaction, virtual and augmented reality, education, authoring, entertainment, gaming, telepresence, assistive systems, universal access, healthcare, biometry, intelligent environments, meeting analysis and meeting spaces, indexing, retrieval and summarization, etc.

  • Modeling human communication patterns, affect and cognition
    Multimodal human-human and human-machine communication; verbal and nonverbal interaction; discurse and dialogue modeling, multimodal social signal processing.

  • Data, evaluation and standards for Multimodal Interactive systems
    Architectures; assessment techniques and methodologies; corpora; annotation and browsing of multimodal interactive data; standards for multimodal interfaces.
