ICMI 2018 Call for Long and Short Papers

The 20th International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2018)
will be held in Boulder, Colorado. ICMI is the premier international forum
for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer
interaction, interfaces, and system development. The conference focuses on
theoretical and empirical foundations, component technologies, and combined
multimodal processing techniques that define the field of multimodal
interaction analysis, interface design, and system development.

We are keen to showcase novel input and output modalities and interactions
to the ICMI community. ICMI 2018 will feature a single-track main
conference which includes: keynote speakers, technical full and short
papers (including oral and poster presentations), demonstrations, exhibits
and doctoral spotlight papers. The conference will also feature workshops
and grand challenges. The proceedings of ICMI 2018 will be published by ACM
as part of their series of International Conference Proceedings and Digital
Library.

We also want to welcome conference papers from behavioral and social
sciences.  These papers allow us to understand how technology can be used
to increase our scientific knowledge and may focus less on presenting
technical or algorithmic novelty. For this reason, the "novelty" criteria
used during ICMI 2018 review will be based on two sub-criteria (i.e.,
scientific novelty and technical novelty as described below). Accepted
papers at ICMI 2018 only need to be novel on one of these sub-criteria. In
other words, a paper which is strong on scientific knowledge contribution
but low on algorithmic novelty should be ranked similarly to a paper that
is high on algorithmic novelty but low on knowledge discovery.

- Scientific Novelty: Papers should bring some new knowledge to the
scientific community. For example, discovering new behavioral markers that
are predictive of mental health or how new behavioral patterns relate to
children’s interactions during learning. It is the responsibility of the
authors to perform a proper literature review and clearly discuss the
novelty in the scientific discoveries made in their paper.

- Technical Novelty: Papers reviewed with this sub-criterion should include
novelty in their computational approach for recognizing, generating or
modeling data. Examples include: novelty in the learning and prediction
algorithms, in the neural architecture, or in the data representation.
Novelty can also be associated to a new usage of an existing approach.

process.

understanding of multi-party interactions. Additional topics of interest
include but are not limited to:

- Affective computing and interaction
- Cognitive modeling and multimodal interaction
- Gesture, touch and haptics
- Healthcare, assistive technologies
- Human communication dynamics
- Human-robot/agent multimodal interaction
- Interaction with smart environment
- Machine learning for multimodal interaction
- Mobile multimodal systems
- Multimodal behavior generation
- Multimodal datasets and validation
- Multimodal dialogue modeling
- Multimodal fusion and representation
- Multimodal interactive applications
- Speech behaviors in social interaction
- System components and multimodal platforms
- Visual behaviors in social interaction
- Virtual/augmented reality and multimodal interaction
