Call for Papers: ICMI-MLMI 2010 12th International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces and 7th Workshop on Machine Learning for Multimodal Interaction Beijing, China, November 8-12, 2010 The Twelfth International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces and the Seventh Workshop on Machine Learning for Multimodal Interaction will be held jointly in Beijing China during November 8-12, 2010. The primary aim of ICMI-MLMI 2010 is to further scientific research within the broad field of multimodal interaction, methods, and systems, focusing on major trends and challenges, and working towards identifying a roadmap for future research and commercial success. The conference will continue to feature a single-track with keynote speakers, technical paper presentations, poster sessions, a doctoral consortium, and demonstrations of state of the art multimodal systems and concepts. The conference will be followed by workshops. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Multimodal input and output interfaces - Multimodal human behavior analysis - Machine learning methods for multimodal processing - Fusion techniques and hybrid architectures - Processing of language and action patterns - Gaze and vision-based interfaces - Speech and conversational interfaces - Pen-based interfaces - Haptic interfaces - Brain-computer interfaces - Cognitive modeling of users - Multi-biometric interfaces - Multimodal-multisensor interfaces - Interfaces for attentive and intelligent environments - Mobile, tangible and virtual/augmented multimodal interfaces - Distributed/collaborative multimodal interfaces - Tools and system infrastructure issues for designing multimodal interfaces - Evaluation of multimodal interfaces - AI techniques and adaptive multimodal interfaces Paper Submission There are two different submission categories: regular paper and short paper. The page limit is 8 pages for regular papers and 4 pages for short papers. Demo Submission Proposals for demos shall be submitted to demo chairs electronically. A two page description with photographs of the demo is required.
