Call for Workshops

The International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2018) will be
held in Boulder, Colorado, USA, during October 16-20, 2018. ICMI is the
premier international conference for multidisciplinary research on
multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction analysis, interface
design, and system development. The theme of the ICMI 2018 conference is
Multi-modal Understanding of Multi-party Interactions. ICMI has developed a
tradition of hosting workshops in conjunction with the main conference to
foster discourse on new research, technologies, social science models and
applications. Examples of recent workshops include:

- Eye Gaze in Intelligent Human Machine Interaction: Eye-Gaze and

- Emotion Representations and Modelling for Human-Computer Interaction

- Smart Material Interfaces: Another Step to a Material Future

- Investigating Social Interactions with Artificial Agents

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

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

- Advancements in Social Signal Processing for Multimodal Interaction

- Multi-Sensorial Approaches to Human-Food Interaction

- Multimodal Deception Detection

- Multimodal Interaction for Education

We are seeking workshop proposals on emerging research areas related to the
main conference topics, and those that focus on multi-disciplinary
research.  We would also strongly encourage workshops that will include a
diverse set of keynote speakers (factors to consider include: gender,
ethnic background, institutions, years of experience, geography, etc.).

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.


Prospective workshop organizers are invited to submit proposals in PDF
format (Max. 3 pages). Please email proposals to the workshop chairs:
Daniel McDuff ([hidden email]), Hatice Gunes ([hidden email]) and
Khiet Truong ([hidden email]). The proposal should include the

- Workshop title.

- List of organizers including affiliation, email address, and short

- Workshop motivation, expected outcomes and impact.

- Tentative list of keynote speakers.

- Workshop format (by invitation only, call for papers, etc.), anticipated
number of talks/posters, workshop duration (half-day or full-day) including
tentative program.

- Planned advertisement means, website hosting, and estimated participation.

- Paper review procedure (single/double-blind, internal/external,
solicited/invited-only, pool of reviewers, etc.),

- Paper submission and acceptance deadlines.

- Special space and equipment requests, if any.

Workshop organizers should use the ICMI submission system
precisionconference.com for paper submission.
