International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces
Call for Papers

Following the success of the previous three conferences held in 1996,
1999 and 2000, the fourth International Conference on Multimodal
Interfaces (ICMI'2002) will be held in Pittsburgh, 14-16 October
2002. ICMI'02 brings multimodal interface researchers, developers and
end-users together to present, demonstrate and discuss their latest
work. It will also provide those interested in multimodal interfaces a
unique opportunity to keep abreast with the latest development in this
increasingly important subject.

Multimodal interfaces represent an emerging interdisciplinary research
direction, involving spoken language understanding, natural language
understanding, image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition,
experimental psychology, etc. They aim at efficient, convenient and
natural interaction and communication between computers and human
users. Multimodal interfaces will ultimately enable users to interact
with computers using their everyday skills.

Papers describing original work on all aspects of multimodal
interfaces are solicited.

Topics include but are not limited to the following:
* Perceptual computing models and systems
* Speech recognition and synthesis
* Character and handwriting recognition
* Hand gesture and lip-motion recognition
* Gaze tracking, face detection and facial expression recognition
* Machine translation and multilingual interfaces
* Computer graphics for multimodal interfaces
* Sensors for multimodal interfaces
* Affective computing for HCI
* Distributed HCI
* Multimodal interfaces for the Internet and virtual reality
* Multimodal interfaces for wearable and mobile computing
* Multimodal interfaces for the disabled
* Human factors in multimodal interfaces
* Platforms and tools

S u b m i s s i o n
Papers must be written in English and should be no longer than 6 pages
single spaced, and should use a font no smaller than 10-point. All
printed material must follow the CS press specifications
( . The title page should
include the title of the paper, an abstract (200-300 words), a list of
keywords, and the authors' contact details (postal and email
addresses, fax and phone numbers). Electronic files should be in PDF
or PostScript.

In addition, proposals for demonstrations are encouraged. A 1-2 page
description of the demonstration is required. The template is the same
as for the paper guidelines. (See above)

P u b l i c a t i o n
Papers accepted for presentation at the Conference will be included in
the Proceedings to be published by CS press.
