ICMI 2014: CALL FOR WORKSHOPS
======================================================================

ICMI 2014 will host workshops in emerging areas of multimodal
interaction and multimedia processing. The ICMI 2014 workshop program
aims to provide researchers with a more informal and discussion
oriented forum to discuss emerging topics in multimodal interaction or
old ones from a new angle. Topics on unimodal research are very
welcome as long as they are novel and interesting. We are eliciting
workshop proposals that break away from traditional conference-style
presentation formats.

Workshops will be held on Sunday November 16th, the days after the main
conference. 
Workshops that run for anywhere between half a day and a full day are
possible.
Workshop organizers may express preferences, but the workshop chairs
will decide on the final schedule.

Accepted workshops will be given an ISBN number for inclusion of the
proceedings in ACM Digital Library. The page limits for accepted
regular workshop papers are 6 pages, including all figures, tables,
and references. One-two pages of workshop summary authored by workshop
organizers will be included in the main proceedings.

The conference organizer will take care of facilities, coffee breaks,
and registration for all workshops. To enable this, breaks must be
coordinated across workshops.

Workshop proposals for ICMI 2014 should include:

* The title, goals of the workshop
* The specific topics that will be addressed by the workshop
* The relevance and significance of this workshop to the main conference
* The history of the workshop if it is not the first occurrence
* The estimated paper submission volume and paper acceptance rate
* Full day or half day workshop program
* If there is a journal special issue arrangement for the published
workshop papers
* A draft workshop call for papers with: the names, affiliations,
addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of the workshop
organizers, who should be experts in the related topics and preferably
from multiple institutions
* The paper selection process
* A list of potential program committee members and their affiliations.

Organizers are encouraged to recruit good quality invited speakers.
The workshop proposal should comply with SIGX Co-Located Workshops:
http://www.acm.org/sigs/volunteer_resources/conference_manual/co-located_wor
kshops

Workshop proposals should not exceed 5 pages. Evaluation criteria for
workshop proposals will include the quality and level of details of
the proposal, the theme of the workshop, its relevance to the main
conference, and the overall balance of the conference workshop
program.
