Call for Multimodal Grand Challenges Proposals
at the
ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2015)
Seattle, WA, USA

** Proposal submissions due: February 21st, 2015
** Notifications: March 1st, 2015
** Conference: November 9-13, 2015

The International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI) is the 
premier international forum for multidisciplinary research on multimodal 
human-human and human-computer interaction, interfaces, and system 
development. Developing systems that can robustly understand human-human 
communication or respond to human input requires identifying the best 
algorithms and their failure modes. In fields such as computer vision, 
speech recognition, and computational linguistics for example, the 
availability of datasets and common tasks have led to great progress. We 
invite the ICMI community to collectively define and tackle the 
scientific Grand Challenges in our domain for the next 5 years. 
Multimodal Grand Challenges are driven by ideas that are bold, 
innovative, and inclusive. They should inspire new ideas in the ICMI 
community and create momentum for future collaborative work. Analysis, 
synthesis, and interactive tasks are all possible. An important change 
from previous years is that all Grand Challenge participants will give a 
poster/demo presentation during the main portion of the conference. 
Additionally, all Grand Challenge papers will be evaluated by ICMI 
participants in order to determine the recipient(s) of the overall Best 
Grand Challenge Paper Award.

We are seeking organizers to propose and run Grand Challenge events. 
Both academic and corporate organizers are welcome. We are looking for 
up to three types of challenges in any of the following categories:

* Dataset-driven challenge.
* User case challenge.
* Concept challenge.
* Design Challenges.

We are also soliciting proposals that align with the theme of the 
conference, Multimodal interaction on mobile/wearable devices & large 
displays, such as:

* Mobile interaction challenge.
* Multimodal Interaction with large displays challenge.
