ICMI'05 Workshop on Multimodal Interaction  for theVisualization and
Exploration of Scientific Data
in conjunction with the Seventh International Conference on Multimodal
  October 3, 2005 Trento, ITALY
  The ICMI'05 workshop on Multimodal Interaction for the
  Visualization and Exploration of Scientific Data will take
  place in Trento, Italy on October 3, 2005. It is aimed to
  bring together academic researchers and practitioners from
  computer science, human-computer interaction, virtual
  reality, artificial intelligence, software engineering and
  psychology to discuss the challenges and opportunities
  provided by multimodal interaction when it is applied to the
  field of scientific visualization.
  Based on the combination of several modalities including
  graphical user interface, speech, gestures, direct
  manipulation, haptics, real time video and audio; multimodal
  interfaces enable people's interaction with the visual
  representations of simulated phenomena. This results in
  interaction being more intuitive and flexible. The maturing
  virtual and augmented reality techniques, together with
  emerging haptic interfaces and multimedia networking
  technologies open the way to new forms of collaborative work
  and new domains of multi-participant systems, including
  collaborative visualization.
  When highly skilled and coordinated human communicative
  behavior controls interactions, multimodal interfaces may
  improve the accessibility for diverse users and contexts.
  Based on multimodal communicative acts, social user
  interfaces (e.g., embodied agents) are aimed at emphasizing
  'human-to-human' properties of interaction and, therefore,
  permit the building of a kind of relationship with an
  interactive environment and other users to facilitate the
  exploration of scientific data. To allow people to use their
  everyday skills and to improve coverage, reliability and
  usability, researchers are designing multimodal interfaces
  that automatically learn and adapt to important user, task
  and environmental parameters.
  The main research question that we would like to address is
  how to efficiently integrate visualisation and modern
  multimodal interaction technologies to ensure good user
  experience. We will consider the impact of the application
  field-orientation as well as domain-independent criteria for
  choosing between modern interaction techniques and input devices.
  Therefore, we are seeking original contributions that deal
  with (but are not limited to):
  -    Interactive and multimodal data visualization
  -    Multimodal and cross-modal haptic interfaces
  -    Virtual exploration environments
  -    Collaborative visualization in VR
  -    Perceptual and attentive user interfaces
  -    Embodied agents
  -    Language driven interaction
  -    Adaptive interaction for the effective exploration of
  scientific data
  -    Human factors in the computer-supported exploration
  -    Design guidelines for interactive visualization tools
  -    Multimodal interactive visualization applications and systems
  Biomedicine, product design, manufacturing process control,
  phobia therapy, surgical training, car, ship and flight
  simulators: these are just a few domains where multimodal
  interaction and scientific visualization have already been
  combined. To discuss existing solutions we encourage both
  researchers and developers to contribute to this workshop.
  During the workshop they will have the opportunity to show
  their products (or research prototypes), while potential
  users can pose their requests.
  Paper Submissions:
  We invite research papers (maximum 8 pages). Submitted papers
  must be original, containing new and original results. All
  submissions will be pre-reviewed and selected based on
  contribution to the workshop topic, originality and the
  shared interests of participants. The workshop submission
  will be accepted from the academic, industrial and commercial
  Please send your submissions as a single PDF or PS file to
  [log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask]  by July 5, 2005.
  For the format, we strongly recommend to use ACM SIG
  Proceedings Templates.
  All papers accepted for the workshop will be published in the
  Workshop Proceedings provided by ITC. Detailed information
  about the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates recommended by ITC
  can be found on the web site:
  In addition, a selected number of the accepted workshop
  papers will be expanded and revised for the possible
  inclusion into the post-workshop special issue of "Knowledge
  and Information Systems: An International Journal" by Springer.
