*** EXTENDED DEADLINE ****
*** Research & position papers deadline July 2, 2007 ***

This **multidisciplinary** workshop will focus on the multimedia aspects of
human-centered computing. The goal is to discuss key concepts, theoretical
frameworks and technical approaches, challenges, research opportunities, and
open issues in multimedia interaction, content analysis, and content
production. We invite researchers and designers from various disciplines to
submit original technical contributions and position papers to explore and
define radical ways in which Human-Centered Multimedia can revolutionize
computing. In order to break away from the traditional workshop format, a
strong emphasis will be placed on discussions leading to specific goals set
by the workshop organizers.

We seek technical contributions and position statements. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to the following:

·        Multimodal interaction (body, gaze, gesture, audio and speech) for
the human-computer-interaction and the computer-in-the-human-interaction loops;
·        Experiential and affective issues in multimedia;
·        Interactive multimedia search;
·        Machine learning with a human-in-the loop;
·        User, context, and task modeling in multimedia systems;
·        Multimedia ubiquitous computing;
·        Human interaction modeling from multimedia;
·        Social network analysis from multimedia;
·        Cultural and social issues in multimedia modeling;
·        Multimedia collaboration;
·        Interactive storytelling;
·        Social dynamics modeling and socially aware systems;
·        Ethnocomputing;
·        Diversity in computing
