Dear colleagues,

Paper submission deadline for the Special Issue on "Behavior and Usability
Analysis for Multimodal User Interfaces" in JMUI is extended to 24th May,

Apologies for cross posting...

*******************************CFP: Special Issue on “Behavior and
Usability Analysis for Multimodal User Interfaces” in JMUI*

Joint analysis of different modalities of user inputs such as text, speech,
voice, facial expressions, gesture, and physiological signals, is an
important area of research, and highly beneficial in more natural and
effective forms of intelligent human computer interaction. With the recent
dramatic advances in machine learning, signal processing, computer vision,
and natural language processing, variety of multimodal applications
increases every day. Application areas include healthcare, autonomous
driving, robotics, sports analytics, neuromarketing, psychological and
physiological assessment, surveillance, gaming, and augmented/virtual
reality. Consequently, in the era of intelligent systems, reliable
interpretation of human behavior and detailed analysis of usability for
multimodal user interfaces gain further importance.

We solicit contributions to a special issue of the Journal on Multimodal
User Interfaces on “Behavior and Usability Analysis for Multimodal User
Interfaces.” For this special issue, we welcome technical and empirical
studies that focus on (a) interpretation and modeling of behavioral
patterns, and (b) analysis and assessment of usability for multimodal human
computer interaction. The topics include, but are not restricted to:

- Usability analysis
- User-centered interaction
- Human activity analysis
- Social signal processing
- Facial expression and gesture recognition
- Face and body tracking
- Speech recognition and voice analysis
- Text analysis
- Psychological and physiological assessment
- Multimodal fusion
- Spatio-temporal dynamics of actions and behavior
- Benchmarking studies on novel databases

Submissions must represent original material. Papers are accepted for
review with the understanding that the same work has been neither submitted
to, nor published in, another journal or conference. All manuscripts will
undergo a rigorous review process. Please indicate in your cover letter
that you are submitting to the special issue. The authors are required to
follow the Submission Guidelines of the Journal on Multimodal User

Deadline for paper submission: 24 May 2020
Notification of review outcome: 19 July 2020
Camera-ready version of accepted papers: 23 August 2020
Estimated publication date: Autumn 2020
