The Eleventh International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces and Workshop
on Machine Learning for Multi-modal Interaction will jointly take place 
in the Boston area during November 2-6, 2009.

The main aim of ICMI-MLMI 2009 is to further scientific research within 
the broad field of multimodal interaction, methods and systems. The joint 
conference will focus on major trends and challenges in this area, and 
work to identify a roadmap for future research and commercial success. 
ICMI-MLMI 2009 will feature a single-track main conference with keynote 
speakers, panel discussions, technical paper presentations, poster 
sessions, and demonstrations of state of the art multimodal systems and 
concepts. It will be followed by workshops.

The conference will take place at the MIT Media Lab, widely known for its 
innovative spirit. Organized in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, ICMI-MLMI 
09 provides an excellent setting for brainstorming and sharing the latest 
advances in multimodal interaction, systems and methods in an inspired 
setting of a city, known as one of the top historical, technological and 
scientific centers of the US.
