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.
