SPECIAL ISSUE OF SIGNAL PROCESSING (ELSEVIER) ON MULTIMODAL HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERFACES Closely linked with the actions of the Network of Excellence on Multimodal Interfaces SIMILAR ( we are seeking for original manuscripts for a Special Issue of Signal Processing scheduled to appear in January 2006. 

Multimodal Interfaces represent an emerging interdisciplinary research direction, involving speech and language, vision, gesture, haptics and other senses. They are aiming at efficient, convenient and intuitive ways of interaction and communication between humans and computers. Multimodal interfaces allow users to interact with technological infrastructures using everyday skills and will open up their communication bandwidth. 

The topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to: 
* Multimodal-multisensor input and output interfaces
* Multimodal interface design and evaluation
* Architecture, Tools and System Infrastructure for multimodal interfaces
* Fusion techniques
* Processing of speech, language and action patterns
* Gaze, gesture and vision-based interfaces
* Speech & conversational interfaces
* Musical interfaces
* Haptics interfaces
* Adaptive multimodal interfaces
* Multimodal interfaces
for Mobile, Wearable, Tangible, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality systems
* Applications of multimodal interfaces 

Papers for this special issue will be chosen from the submissions whether they are unpublished results or those previously included in conference publications. The submissions that are revised or extended versions of previous conference publications should contain at least 30% new material. Copies of any previous published work affiliated with the new submission must also be included as supportive documentation upon submission. 

Prospective authors can access the complete submission guidelines at: The paper submission should be by e-mail, in PDF format, to the following address: [log in to unmask]
