New this year! The ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction
(ICMI) is soliciting submissions for a new venue this year: Late-Breaking
Results (LBR). The goal of the LBR venue is to provide a way for
researchers to share emerging results at the conference. Accepted
submissions will be presented in a poster session at the conference, and
the extended abstract will be published in the new Adjunct Proceedings
(Companion Volume) of the main ICMI Proceedings. Like similar venues at
other conferences, the LBR venue is intended to allow sharing of ideas,
getting formative feedback on early-stage work, and furthering
collaborations among colleagues.

Late-Breaking Work (LBR) submissions represent work such as preliminary
results, provoking and current topics, novel experiences or interactions
that may not have been fully validated yet, cutting edge or emerging work
that is still in exploratory stages, smaller-scale studies, or in general,
work that has not yet reached a level of maturity expected for the
full-length main track papers. However, LBR papers are still expected to
bring a contribution to the ICMI community, commensurate with the
preliminary, short, and quasi-informal nature of this track.


Accepted LBR papers will be presented as posters during the conference.
This provides an opportunity for researchers to receive feedback on
early-stage work, explore potential collaborations, and otherwise engage in
exciting thought-provoking discussions about their work in an informal
setting that is significantly less constrained than a paper presentation.
The LBR (posters) track also offers those new to the ICMI community a
chance to share their preliminary research as they become familiar with
this field.

Late-Breaking Work papers appear in the Adjunct Proceedings (Companion
Volume) of the ICMI Proceedings. Copyright is retained by the authors, and
the material from these papers can be used as the basis for future
publications as long as there are “significant” revisions from the
original, as per the ACM and ACM SIGCHI policies.


Extended Abstract: An anonymized, four-page paper, not including
references, in the 2015 ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstracts format (
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sigchi.org_templates&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=kIIhuHtZpkGISiWwsZd5u3WIegGRYeegitqdbqUb1C0&s=mIZHvmhJ4W1xXZhUm-5_-O-NOYlb7hxR-nbzx6c39zM&e=). The paper should be submitted in PDF format
and through the ICMI submission system in the "Late-Breaking Work" track.
Due to the tight publication timeline, it is recommended that authors
submit a very nearly finalized paper that is as close to camera-ready as
possible, as there will be a very short timeframe for preparing the final
camera-ready version and no deadline extensions can be granted.

Anonymization: Authors are instructed not to include author information in
their submission. In order to help reviewers judge the situation of the LBR
to prior work, authors should not remove or anonymize references to their
own prior work. Instead, we recommend that authors obscure references to
their own prior work by referring to it in the third person during
submission. If desired, after acceptance, such references can be changed to


LBRs will be evaluated to the extent that they are presenting work still in
progress, rather than complete work which is under-described in order to
fit into the LBR format. The LBR track will undergo an external peer review
process. Submissions will be evaluated by a number of factors including (1)
the relevance of the work to ICMI, (2) the quality of the submission, and
(3) the degree to which it “fits” the LBR track (e.g., in-progress
results). More particularly, the quality of the submission will be
evaluated based on the potential contributions of the research to the field
of multimodal interfaces and its impact on the field and beyond.


At least one author of all accepted LBR submissions must register for and
attend the conference, including the conference poster session.
