Seventh International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI 2005)
October 4-6, 2005 Centro Servizi Culturali S. Chiara Via S. Croce 67
38100 TRENTO

Sponsored by ACM

The Seventh International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI2005)
will take place in Trento, Italy October 4-6, 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

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.

The program includes:

- three keynote presentations by:

        Marc Ernst, MPI for Biological Cybernetics, (Germany)
        Sandy Pentland, MIT Media Lab, (U.S.A)
        Hiroshi Ishiguro, Osaka University & ATR Intelligent Robotics
and Communications Laboratories, (Japan)

- Single track podium presentations

- Poster and Demo sessions

- A Doctoral Spotlight session

- three workshops on new and emerging topics:

Multimodal Interaction for the visualization and exploration of
scientific data ( ). During
this workshop it will be allocated a special session for Linguistic and
cognitive aspects of multimodal interaction
Multimodal multiparty meeting processing (
 User-centred design and evaluation of services for human-human
communication and collaboration

- four tutorials:
