Announcing New Blue Sky Papers Track***************************************ACM ICMI 2021: Announcing New Blue Sky Papers Track Oct 2021, Montreal, Canada***************************************
Announcing New ICMI 2021 Blue Sky Papers Track
ACM’s ICMI Conference 2021 is pleased to partner with the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) to initiate a new Blue Sky paper track that emphasizes innovative, visionary, and highimpact contributions. This track solicits papers relevant to ICMI content that go beyond the usual research paper to present new visions that stimulate the community to pursue innovative new research directions. They may challenge existing assumptions and methodologies, or propose new applications or theories. The papers are encouraged to present high-risk controversial ideas. Submitted papers are expected to represent deep reflection, to argue rigorously, and to present ideas from a high-level synthetic viewpoint (e.g., multidisciplinary, based on multiple methodologies). Submissions should be 4 pages, independent of references, and will be due on May 26th, 2021. The CCC will distribute and publicize papers published in this track, and sponsor awards to honor the first ($1,000), second ($750), and third ($500) place papers in the form of travel grants.
The 23rd ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2021) will be held in Montreal, Canada October 18-22, 2021. ICMI is the premier international forum for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction, interfaces, and system development. The main conference themes in 2021 will be behavioral health and virtual connectivity, but other major topics of central interest include human communication and multimodal language/dialogue processing, human-robot/agent interaction, affective computing and social interaction, cognitive modeling, multimodal representations and fusion-based architectures, machine learning for multimodal interaction and system applications, speech, gesture, haptics, olfaction, gaze and vision, multimodal datasets and platforms, mobile and ubiquitous interfaces, interfaces for virtual/augmented reality, smart environments, and assistive technologies.
