 Program and Call for Participation

 WORKSHOP ON MULTIMODAL CORPORA
 LREC 2004

 Tuesday 25th May 2004
 Centro Cultural de Belem, LISBON, Portugal, 25th may 2004

 In Association with LREC 2004
 (4th International Conference On Language Resources And Evaluation)

MOTIVATION

The primary purpose of this one day workshop is to share information
and engage in the collective planning for the future
creation of usable multidisciplinary multimodal resources.

It will focus on the following issues regarding multimodal corpora:
- how researchers build models of human behaviour out of the annotations
of video corpora,
- how they use such knowledge for the specification of multimodal
  input (e.g. merging users' gestures and speech )
  and output (e.g. specification of believable and
  emotional behaviour in Embodied Conversational Agents) in human
computer interfaces,
- and finally how they evaluate multimodal systems
  (e.g. full system evaluation and glass box evaluation of individual
system components).
