Seventh International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI 2005)
October 3-7, 2005

 Centro Servizi Culturali S. Chiara Via S. Croce 67 38100 TRENTO

Sponsored by ACM

The Seventh International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI 2005)
will take place in Trento, Italy October 3-7, 2005, with the theme of
multimodal input and output interfaces through mobile technologies and
applications. The main aim of ICMI 2005 is to further scientific research
within the broad field of multimodal interaction & systems. The conference
will focus on major trends and challenges in this area, including
distilling a roadmap for future research and commercial success. We are
very pleased to announce this Call for Papers that invites experts from
both research and industry to actively participate in ICMI 2005.

ICMI 2005 will feature a main conference Oct. 4-6, with keynote speakers,
plenary sessions for technical paper presentations and discussion, a
doctoral spotlight paper session highlighting top student research, poster
sessions, panel discussions, and demonstrations of state-of-the-art
multimodal concepts and systems. To further stimulate discussion and
interaction within emerging important topic areas, ICMI 2005 also will
host joint workshops and tutorials on October 3 and October 7.

Topics of special interest include multimodal input and output interfaces,
fusion techniques & hybrid architectures, processing of language and
action patterns, gaze and vision-based interfaces, speech & conversational
interfaces, pen-based interfaces, haptics interfaces, cognitive modelling
of users, artificial intelligence techniques, adaptive multimodal
interfaces, multibiometric interfaces, multimodal-multisensor interfaces,
interfaces for attentive and intelligent environments, multimodal
interfaces that support cooperation and teamwork within groups, mobile,
tangible and virtual/augmented multimodal interfaces, universal access
interfaces, multimodal applications and demonstrations, and multimodal
system infrastructure and tools for data collection, design, development,
and evaluation of multimodal interfaces.

Grants are available to partially support the participation in the main
conference of students who are the first or sole author of accepted
papers. Information about how to apply for students grants will be made
available in due time

WORKSHOP proposal that explores newly emerging, challenging, or important
multimodal themes (2 pages).

TUTORIAL proposals that disseminate knowledge on more consolidated
multimodal topics (2 pages).

Full paper and doctoral spotlight contributors are kindly requested to
