Seventh International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI 2005) October 3-7, 2005 Centro Servizi Culturali S. Chiara Via S. Croce 67 38100 TRENTO http://icmi05.itc.it/

Sponsored by ACM

The Seventh International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI 2005) will take place in Trento, Italy October 3-7, 2005, with the theme of multimodal input and output interfaces through mobile technologies and applications. The main aim of ICMI 2005 is to further scientific research within the broad field of multimodal interaction & systems. The conference will focus on major trends and challenges in this area, including distilling a roadmap for future research and commercial success. We are very pleased to announce this Call for Papers that invites experts from both research and industry to actively participate in ICMI 2005.
ICMI 2005 will feature a main conference Oct. 4-6, with keynote speakers, plenary sessions for technical paper presentations and discussion, a doctoral spotlight paper session highlighting top student research, poster sessions, panel discussions, and demonstrations of state-of-the-art multimodal concepts and systems. To further stimulate discussion and interaction within emerging important topic areas, ICMI 2005 also will host joint workshops and tutorials on October 3 and October 7.

Topics of special interest include multimodal input and output interfaces, fusion techniques & hybrid architectures, processing of language and action patterns, gaze and vision-based interfaces, speech & conversational interfaces, pen-based interfaces, haptics interfaces, cognitive modelling of users, artificial intelligence techniques, adaptive multimodal interfaces, multibiometric interfaces, multimodal-multisensor interfaces, interfaces for attentive and intelligent environments, multimodal interfaces that support cooperation and teamwork within groups, mobile, tangible and virtual/augmented multimodal interfaces, universal access interfaces, multimodal applications and demonstrations, and multimodal system infrastructure and tools for data collection, design, development, and evaluation of multimodal interfaces.

Grants are available to partially support the participation in the main conference of students who are the first or sole author of accepted papers. Information about how to apply for students grants will be made available in due time



Submission Requirements

The ICMI'05 proceedings will be published by ACM Press.

We invite interested researchers to submit to any of the following categories:

FULL PAPER describing original research in multimodal interfaces (8 pages).
DOCTORAL SPOTLIGHT PAPER featuring emerging student research (4 pages).
PANEL PROPOSAL that presents, debates, or provokes discussion (2 pages).
DEMO PROPOSAL that displays related concepts or implementations (2 pages).
WORKSHOP proposal that explores newly emerging, challenging, or important multimodal themes (2 pages).
TUTORIAL proposals that disseminate knowledge on more consolidated multimodal topics (2 pages).

Full paper and doctoral spotlight contributors are kindly requested to send an abstract (no more than 200 words) by April 25, 2005.
