The 19th International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2017)
will be held in Glasgow, Scotland. ICMI is the premier international forum
for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer
interaction, interfaces, and system development. The conference focuses on
theoretical and empirical foundations, component technologies, and combined
multimodal processing techniques that define the field of multimodal
interaction analysis, interface design, and system development.
The ICMI 2017 Demonstrations & Exhibits session is intended to provide a
forum to showcase innovative implementations, systems and technologies
demonstrating new ideas about interactive multimodal interfaces. We
particularly encourage demonstration of interactive and multimodal analysis
systems and sensors. They can also serve to introduce commercial products.
Proposals may be of two types: demonstrations and exhibits. The main
difference is that demonstrations include a short paper (2 pages), which
will be included in ICMI proceedings, while the exhibits only need to
include a short outline (no more than 1 page). We encourage both the
submission of early research prototypes and interesting mature systems. In
addition, authors of accepted regular research papers are invited to
participate in the demonstration sessions as well.
This year will feature a Multimodal Resources track to showcase novel
corpora, annotation tools and schemes. Demonstrations in this track will
benefit from more exposure to visitors, and will allow visitors to interact
with the material.
A 1-2 page description of the demonstration is required, which must be
submitted electronically through the main ICMI conference management system
(https://precisionconference.com/~icmi). Demo description(s) must be in PDF
format, according to the ACM conference format, of no more than 2 pages in
length including references (template available at:
http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template#aL2). Demo proposals
should include a description with photographs and/or screen captures of the
demonstration and, if possible, the URL of a website where a live version
or video of the proposed demo is available. Please note that the accepted
descriptions will be included in ICMI proceedings.
The selection process is juried (curated) by committee, according to
criteria such as: suitability as a demo, scientific or engineering
feasibility of the proposed demo system, application, or interactivity,
alignment with the conference focus, potential to engage the audience, and
overall quality and presentation of the written proposal. Authors are
encouraged to address such criteria in their proposals (paper submission),
along with preparing the short papers mindful of the quality and rigorous
scientific expectations of an ACM publication.
The curated demo program will be selected from the submitted proposals as
well as invited demos from among full-length papers accepted for
presentation at the conference which the committee deems suitable for
Exhibit proposals should be submitted following the same guidelines,
formatting, and due dates as for demo proposals. The main difference is
that exhibits proposals should be shorter in length (up to one page) and
more suitable for very mature systems (commercial or almost commercial).
Exhibits won't have a paper published in the ICMI 2017 proceedings.
All materials should be prepared in PDF format and submitted through the
ICMI submission system via PCS (https://precisionconference.com/~icmi). The
demo and exhibit paper submissions should not be anonymous. However, all
ACM rules and guidelines related to paper submission should be followed
(e.g. plagiarism, including self-plagiarism).
Demonstrations and Exhibits submission deadline: 29th August 2017
Notification of acceptance: 14th September 2017
Camera-ready submission - Papers: 22nd September, 2017
Camera-ready submission - Materials (e.g. Video): 25th September, 2017
Conference dates: 13th-17th November 2017
