Conference Call for 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.

Please see the Submission Guidelines for Authors for detailed submission instructions.

Affective computing and interaction
Cognitive modeling and multimodal interaction
Gesture, touch and haptics
Healthcare, assistive technologies
