Hello!    Bonjour!

              The International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI) is the premier international forum for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction, interfaces, and system development. We are requesting nominations for two awards which will be presented during ICMI 2019 in Suzhou, China (October 14-18, 2019):

  *   Sustained Accomplishment Award: This award will be given to a senior scientist who has made innovative, long-lasting, and influential contributions to the field of multimodal interaction, interfaces, and systems. The nominee will have demonstrated vision in shaping the field, had a sustained record of high-impact research, pioneered one or more research directions, and substantially influenced the work of others.
  *   Community Service Award: This award will be given to scientist who has made invaluable social-organizational contributions that have collectively had a major impact on improving the ICMI community and its annual events. Emphasis will be placed on selecting an individual who has made major contributions over a sustained period of five years or longer, including ones that have diversified and built the community, expanded opportunities for student training and participation, and similarly influential contributions.

Nomination Process: The deadline for Nominations in both categories is *July 9, 2019*. The nomination process this year has been streamlined and simplified. The main requirement is a nomination statement, with a maximum length one page, describing the main achievements and impact of the nominee. A pointer to the personal webpage and CV of the nominee can also be submitted. Nominations may be received from any member of the multimodal interaction research community. Nominations should be emailed to the ICMI Steering Board Chair (Louis-Philippe Morency, [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).

Selection Process: The 2019 Awards Committee will review nominations for each award category, determine whether it is appropriate to give an award for each of the categories, and make a final decision. The Committee might also determine to give more than one award in a given category. Conflict of interest procedures prohibit that any members of the Awards Committee be considered for an award while serving on the committee, or that they participate in evaluating any candidate with whom they have had significant professional collaborations or from whom they have received financial remuneration.

              Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
Best wishes,
Louis-Philippe Morency
Chair of ICMI Steering Board
