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.

The ICMI 2018 program includes an exciting set of events and speakers.
Highlights include

- A multimodal approach to understanding human vocal expressions and beyond
by Prof. Shrikanth (Shri) Narayanan
- Using Technology for Health and Wellbeing by Dr. Mary Czerwinski
