CALL FOR PAPERS - 2011 International Conference on Multimodal  
Interaction (ICMI2011)

2011 International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI2011)
November 14-18, 2011
Alicante, Spain

The International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI) and the  
Workshop on Machine Learning for Multimodal Interaction (MLMI) are  
combined for form the new ICMI, which continues to be the premium  
international forum where multimodal signal processing and multimedia  
human-computer interaction are presented and discussed. The conference  
will focus on theoretical and empirical foundations, varied 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 main conference will be held November 14-16, 2011 and followed by  
a 2-day workshop.

TOPICS OF INTEREST include but are not limited to:
* Multimodal and multimedia interactive processing: multimodal fusion,  
multimodal output generation, multimodal interactive discourse and  
dialogue modeling, machine learning methods for multimodal interaction.
* Multimodal input and output interfaces: gaze and vision-based  
interfaces, speech and conversational interfaces, pen-based and haptic  
interfaces, virtual/augmented reality interfaces, biometric  
interfaces, adaptive multimodal interfaces, natural user interfaces,  
authoring techniques, architectures.
* Multimodal and interactive applications: Mobile and ubiquitous  
interfaces, meeting analysis and meeting spaces, interfaces to media  
content and entertainment, human-robot interfaces and interaction,  
audio/speech and vision interfaces for gaming, multimodal interaction  
issues in telepresence, vehicular applications and navigational aids,  
interfaces for intelligent environments, universal access and  
assistive computing, multimodal indexing, structuring and summarization.
* Human interaction analysis and modeling: modeling and analysis of  
multimodal human-human communication, audio-visual perception of human  
interaction, analysis and modeling of verbal and nonverbal  
interaction, cognitive modeling.
* Multimodal and interactive data, evaluation, and standards:  
evaluation techniques and methodologies, annotation and browsing of  
multimodal and interactive data, standards for multimodal interactive  
* Core enabling technologies: pattern recognition, machine learning,  
computer vision, speech recognition, gesture recognition.

* Workshops proposal: March 1, 2011
* Paper and demo submission: May 13, 2011
* Author notification: August 5, 2011
* Camera ready deadline: September 02, 2011
* Conference: November 14-16, 2011
