ICMI 2019: Call for Workshops

Workshop proposal submission extended: Sunday, February 24, 2019  

Call for Workshops

The International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2019) will be held in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China, during October 14-18, 2019. 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 2019 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:

    Multi-sensorial Approaches to Human-Food Interaction
    Group Interaction Frontiers in Technology
    Modeling Cognitive Processes from Multimodal Data
    Human-Habitat for Health
    Multimodal Analyses enabling Artificial Agents in Human-Machine Interaction
    Investigating Social Interactions with Artificial Agents
    Child Computer Interaction
    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: Hongwei Ding (hwding at sjtu.edu.cn), Carlos Busso (busso at utdallas.edu) and Tadas Baltrusaitis (tadyla at gmail.com). The proposal should include the following:

    Workshop title
    List of organizers including affiliation, email address, and short biographies
    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

Important Dates:

Workshop proposal submission extended: Sunday, February 24, 2019
