*** All authors will need to register their paper abstract before Friday May 9th at 23:59 PST.
*** The new submission deadline for short and long papers is Friday May 16th at 23:59 PST. This is the final deadline (no more
extensions) given our priority for a high quality review process.


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

- 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.

There will be a mixture of oral presentations and poster presentations at the conference. The decision of a poster or an oral
presentation will be made by the program committee. Please note that the main difference between short and long papers is in the
size of contributions and not in the importance of the contributions. In other words, a paper in eight pages will be expected to
have more contribution than one with four pages. Rejected long papers will not be considered for acceptance as short papers, unless
the reviewers unanimously believe this is the right decision. Authors are asked to carefully consider the category of each submitted

Papers submitted at ICMI 2014 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 2014 should not be simultaneously under consideration for another conference or workshop.

* Conference Venue

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