The Tenth International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI  
2008) will take place in Chania, Greece, on October 20-22, 2008. The  
main aim of ICMI 2008 is to further scientific research within the  
broad field of multimodal interaction and systems. The conference will  
focus on major trends and challenges in this area, including help  
identify a roadmap for future research and commercial success. ICMI  
2008 will feature a main conference with keynote speakers, panel  
discussions, technical paper presentations and discussion (single  
track), poster sessions, and demonstrations of state-of-the-art  
multimodal concepts and systems. Organized on the island of Crete,  
ICMI-08 provides excellent conditions for brainstorming and sharing  
the latest advances about multimodal interaction and systems in an  
inspired setting full of history, mythology and art.
