Submission Guidelines for Authors

Please note that the instructions are updated as of 9 April 2022, to allow only a single-column submission format, compatible with TAPS. 

These instructions are specific to the main conference long/short paper submissions, and for Blue Sky papers. For other tracks (DC, demos, workshops, LBR…), please look at the authors’ guidelines provided on the relevant tracks’ pages.

ICMI welcomes high-quality submissions 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.

There are three different submission categories:

  • Long paper: The maximum length is 14 pages in single column ACM conference format, and authors are welcome to submit papers initially in either LaTeX or Word (excluding references).
  • Short paper: The maximum length is 7 pages in single column ACM conference format using latex or Word (excluding references).
  • Blue Sky paper: The maximum length is 7 pages in single column ACM conference format using either LaTeX or Word (excluding references).

Note: References do not count towards the page limit. Papers can have additional pages beyond their page limits that are used exclusively for references. Two supporting files, such as videos or source code, can be also submitted, as ZIP files.

Hybrid Conference: The conference will have both physical and virtual attendance possibilities. The physical attendees will be able to present their work via either oral presentations or poster presentations at the conference. The decision of a poster or an oral presentation will be made by the program committee. For virtual participation, the presentations will be pre-recorded, and the authors will be asked to join interactive sessions to answer questions from the audience. Depending on the available technologies, and the presentation styles (such as breakout rooms for posters), the time allotment for oral and poster papers may change.

Prior Publications

Papers submitted at ICMI 2022 must not have been published previously. A paper is considered to have been published previously if it has appeared in a peer-reviewed journal, magazine, book, or meeting proceedings that is reliably and permanently available afterward in print or electronic form to non-attendees, regardless of the language of that publication. A paper substantially similar in content to one submitted to ICMI 2022 should not be simultaneously under consideration in any other venue including for another conference or workshop or journal.

ICMI 2022 does not consider a paper on arXiv.org and other open repositories as a dual submission, however, the papers deposited to paid-access repositories (such as ResearchGate, Academia) will not be accepted.


The reviewing for all tracks (except the Blue Sky papers, which is single blind) will be double blind, so submissions should be anonymous: do not include the authors’ names, affiliations or any clearly identifiable information in the paper (including in the Acknowledgements and references). It is appropriate to cite past work of the authors if these citations are treated like any other (e.g., “Smith [5] approached this problem by….”) – omit references only if it would be obviously identifying the authors. Program chairs will desk reject non-anonymous papers after reviewing begins.

Submitted papers should conform to the latest ACM LaTeX or Word publication format. Please note that a non-anonymous author block may require a larger space than the anonymized version. For LaTeX templates and examples, as well as precise instructions, please click Preparing our Article with LaTeX, click on download the template files to download acmart-primary.zip, and use the sample-manuscript.tex template with \documentclass[manuscript,anonymous,review]{acmart} to add line numbers. If you are including any LaTeX packages in your article, they must be part of the list of accepted packages. The set of instructions also includes other important information, for example the use of \citestyle and the mandatory use of \Description{} commands for the figures.

For more information on using Microsoft Word to prepare your article, please see Preparing Your Article with Microsoft Word. Authors who decide to use the Word template should be aware that an extra validation step may be required during the camera-ready process for accepted papers.

Note that the ACM Categories & Subject Descriptors section and Author Keywords are mandatory to be included on the first page for your final version to appear in the proceedings and ACM Digital Library. If your submission is accepted, you will be notified within the acceptance notification of the updated ICMI’22 ACM copyright-permission text to update and include.

Rebuttal Period

Authors will be able to see the reviews and post a short rebuttal addressing any major misinterpretation or error. The rebuttal period will be followed by a discussion period between the reviewers and Senior Program Committee members (not visible to authors). Authors will be notified of the final decision soon after.

Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright release.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
