The International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2017) will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, during November 13-17, 2017. ICMI is the premier international conference for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction analysis, interface designs, and system development. ICMI has developed a tradition of hosting workshops on a day around the main conference to further foster the mingling and exchanges around new research, technology, social science models, application and business opportunities Examples of recent workshops include:

Workshop on Eye Gaze in Intelligent Human Machine Interaction: Eye-Gaze and Multimodality

Workshop on Emotion Representations and Modelling for Human-Computer Interaction System

Workshop on Smart Material Interfaces: Another Step to a Material Future

Workshop on Social Behaviour in Music

Multimodal, Multi-Party, Real-World Human-Robot Interaction

Roadmapping the Future of Multimodal Interaction Research including Business Opportunities and Challenges

Workshop on Advancements in Social Signal Processing for Multimodal Interaction

Workshop on Modeling INTERPERsonal SynchrONy And infLuence INTERPERSONAL

Workshop on Multimodal Deception Detection

This tradition will continue at ICMI 2017. Of interest are focused workshops on emerging research areas of the main conference topics, and in particular those favouring multi-disciplinary views around application areas, business opportunities, or societal challenges. The format, style, and content of accepted workshops are under the control of the workshop organizers. Workshops may be of a half-day or one day in duration. Workshop organizers will be expected to manage the workshop content, be present to moderate the discussion and panels, invite experts in the domain, and maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop papers will be indexed by ACM.
