Meeting Description

The fourth MLMI workshop is coming to Brno in the Czech Republic, following
successful workshops in Martigny (2004), Edinburgh (2005) and Washington, DC
(2006). MLMI brings together researchers from the different communities working
on the common theme of advanced machine learning algorithms applied to
multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction.

MLMI'07 second call for papers (apologies for multiple postings):

4th Joint Workshop on Machine Learning
and Multimodal Interaction (MLMI'07)

28-30 June 2007
Brno, Czech Republic


The motivation for creating this joint multi-disciplinary workshop arose from
the actual needs of several large collaborative projects.

MLMI'07 will follow on directly from the annual conference of the Association
for Computational Linguistics (ACL/EACL 2007), which will take place in Prague
on June 25-27, 2007.

- Important Dates

Submission of full papers: 23 February 2007
Submission of extended abstracts: 23 March 2007
Submission of demonstration proposals: 23 March 2007
Acceptance decisions: 17 April 2007
Workshop: 28-30 June 2007

- Workshop Topics

MLMI'07 will feature talks (including a number of invited speakers), posters and
demonstrations. Prospective authors are invited to submit proposals in the
following areas of interest, related to machine learning and multimodal interaction:
- human-human communication modeling
- human-computer interaction modeling
- speech processing
- image and video processing
- multimodal processing, fusion and fission
- multimodal discourse and dialogue modeling
- multimodal indexing, structuring and summarization
- annotation and browsing of multimodal data
- machine learning algorithms and their applications to the topics above

- Satellite Events

MLMI'07 will feature special sessions and satellite events such as the Summer
school of the European Masters in Speech and Language
(http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/emasters/) and the PASCAL Speech Separation Challenge
II (http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/mlincol1/SSC2/). To propose other special
sessions or satellite events for MLMI'07, please contact the organizing committee.

- Guidelines for Submission

In common with the previous MLMI workshops, revised versions of selected papers
will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (cf.
LNCS 3361, 3869, 4299).

Submissions are invited in one of the following formats:
- full papers for oral or poster presentation (12 pages)
- extended abstracts for poster presentation only (1-2 pages)
- demonstration proposals (1-2 pages)

Please submit PDF files using the submission website at
http://groups.inf.ed.ac.uk/mlmi07/, following the Springer LNCS format for
proceedings and other multiauthor volumes

- Venue

Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic and the capital of
Moravia. Brno had been a royal city since 1347 and is the country's judiciary
and trade-fair center. With a population of almost four hundred thousand and its
six universities, Brno is also the cultural center of the region.

Brno can be easily reached by direct flights from Prague, London and Munich and
by trains or buses from Prague (200 km) or Vienna (130 km).

MLMI'07 will take place at the Hotel Continental
(http://www.continentalbrno.cz), a modern hotel located in a quiet part of the
city within walking distance from the city center. The local organizers are
members of the Faculty of Information Technology (http://www.fit.vutbr.cz) at
Brno University of Technology, which was founded in 1899 as the Czech
Technological University.

Thèmes - Temps, aspect, modalité
- La variation régionale et diachronique du français
- L'acquisition du français langue étrangère et seconde
- Le regard du traducteur sur le français

Ce symposium veut rassembler des chercheurs s'intéressant au français dans tous
ses aspects, afin de promouvoir les échanges d'idées et les confrontations de
méthodes. Sans s'y limiter, elle s'articulera autour des quatre thèmes
mentionnés ci-dessus, mais des communications sur d'autres aspects du français,
y compris ceux qui n'ont pas été mentionnés, peuvent être proposées.
Autour du thème 'Temps, aspect, modalité' se développera un mini- 'Colloque
Chronos', avec publication d'une sélection des communications dans les Cahiers

Soumission des propositions de communication
Les propositions de communication (20 minutes avec 10 minutes de discussions)
devront nous parvenir en français ou en anglais avant le 30 avril 2007 sous la
forme d'un résumé d'une page, accompagné de l'affiliation et des coordonnées
complètes de l'auteur. Elles sont à adresser sous forme électronique à:
Le comité scientifique vous enverra sa réponse avant le 15 juin 2007. Toutes les
