Call for Papers

The International Conference on Multimodal Interaction, ICMI 2014, will take place in Istanbul, Turkey, November 12-16, 2014. 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 2014 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 preceded by workshops and followed by grand challenges. The proceedings of ICMI 2014 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 the analysis and modeling of multimodal interaction between people and among the different modalities within people; adaptation and multimodal input fusion and output generation, addressing any combination of: vision, gaze, audio, speech, smell/olfaction, taste, gestures, pen input, haptic and tangible, bio-signals such as brain, skin conductivity, etc.

  • Interactive systems and applications

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

  • Modeling human communication patterns

    The modalities and the applications named above lead to a need for multimodal models of human-human and human-machine communication, including verbal and nonverbal interaction, affordances of different modalities, multimodal discourse and dialogue modeling, modeling of culture as it pertains to multimodality, long-term multimodal interaction, multimodality in social and affective interaction, multimodal social signal processing.

  • Data, evaluation and standards for multimodal interactive systems

    Design issues, principles and best practices and authoring techniques for human-machine interfaces using any combinations of input and/or output multiple modalities. Architectures; assessment techniques and methodologies; corpora; annotation and browsing of multimodal interactive data; W3C and other standards for multimodal interaction and interfaces, evaluation techniques for multimodal systems.

  • Urban Interactions

    Interactions with the city, urban computation, smart cities, applications to promote energy conservation and healthy living, interactive public spaces, interactive artworks in the city, applications for inclusion in metropolitan areas, mobile applications for interacting with the city, crowdsourcing via urban interactions.

Submissions in these areas are invited for workshop topics, special session topics, full papers, short papers, demos, and for the doctoral consortium.

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at Bogazici University Campus in Istanbul.
