**********

The 19th International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2017) will be held in Glasgow, Scotland. 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.

This year, ICMI welcomes contributions on human-computer interaction as a particular topic of interest. We are keen to showcase novel input and output modalities and interactions to the ICMI community.  ICMI 2017 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’2017 will be published by ACM as part of their series of International Conference Proceedings and Digital Library.

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

Submission Process

There are two different submission categories:

Long paper :The maximum length is 8 pages in the two-column ACM conference format (excluding references). An accompanying demonstration can be presented during the demo session (see Demonstration section). Accepted long papers will be presented as either a long talk or a poster.

Short paper :The maximum length is 4 pages in the two-column ACM conference format (excluding references). Accepted short papers will be presented as either a short talk or a poster.

There will be a mixture of oral and poster presentations at the conference. The decision of a poster or an oral presentation will be made by the program committee. Please note that the main difference between short and long papers is in the size of contributions and not in the importance of the contributions. In other words, a paper in eight pages will be expected to have more contribution than one with four pages. Rejected long papers will not be considered for acceptance as short papers, unless the reviewers unanimously believe this is the right decision. Authors are asked to carefully consider the category of each submitted paper.

Rebuttal Period

During this period (from July 21st to July 25th, 2017), authors will be able to see the reviews and post a short rebuttal addressing any major misinterpretation or error. The rebuttal period will be followed by a discussion period between the reviewers and Senior Program Committee members (not visible to authors). Authors will be notified of the final decision on August 25th, 2017.

Online Submission

For online paper submissions is through Precision Conference: http://ift.tt/2n7YNWM

Extra material (e.g. videos) up to 40MB can be attached in the same submission website.
