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. We are requesting nominations for two awards which will be
presented during ICMI 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland (November 13-17):

   - *Sustained Accomplishment Award:* This award will be given to a senior
   scientist who has made innovative, long-lasting, and influential
   contributions to the field of multimodal interaction, interfaces, and
   systems. The nominee will have demonstrated vision in shaping the field,
   had a sustained record of high-impact research, pioneered one or more
   research directions, and substantially influenced the work of others.
   - *Community Service Award:* This award will be given to scientist who
   has made invaluable social-organizational contributions that have
   collectively had a major impact on improving the ICMI community and its
   annual events. Emphasis will be placed on selecting an individual who has
   made major contributions over a sustained period of five years or longer,
   including ones that have diversified and built the community, expanded
   opportunities for student training and participation, and similarly
   influential contributions.

*Nomination Process:* The deadline for Nominations in both categories is *June
12, 2017*. Nominations may be received from any member of the multimodal
interaction (ICMI) community. Each nomination will include a 500-word
statement regarding the nominee’s relevant contributions, a five-page
resume of the nominee, and the names and contact information of three
members of the ICMI community who are prepared to endorse the nomination if
contacted. Nominations should be emailed to the ICMI Steering Board Chair
(Louis-Philippe Morency, [log in to unmask]).

*Selection Process:* The 2017 Awards Committee will review nominations for
each award category, determine whether it is appropriate to give an award
for each of the categories, and make a final decision. The Committee might
also determine to give more than one award in a given category. Conflict of
interest procedures prohibit that any members of the Awards Committee be
considered for an award while serving on the committee, or that they
participate in evaluating any candidate with whom they have had significant
professional collaborations or from whom they have received financial
