First announcement and call for papers: 4th Joint Workshop on Machine Learning and Multimodal Interaction (MLMI'07) 28-30 June 2007 Brno, Czech Republic http://www.mlmi07.org 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. 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 (http://www.springer.com/east/home/computer/lncs?SGWID=5-164-7-72376-0). * 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. * Organizing Committee Honza Cernocky, Brno University of Technology (organization co-chair) Andrei Popescu-Belis, University of Geneva (programme chair) Steve Renals, University of Edinburgh (special sessions) Pavel Zemcik, Brno University of Technology (organization co-chair) * Programme Committee (to be extended) Marc Al-Hames, Munich University of Technology Jan Alexandersson, DFKI Tilman Becker, DFKI Samy Bengio, IDIAP Herve Bourlard, IDIAP Nick Campbell, ATR Jean Carletta, University of Edinburgh Sadaoki Furui, Tokyo Institute of Technology Honza Cernocky, Brno University of Technology John Garofolo, NIST Daniel Gatica-Perez, IDIAP Luc van Gool, ETHZ Thomas Hain, University of Sheffield (area chair) James Henderson, University of Edinburgh Hynek Hermansky, IDIAP Vaclav Hlavac, Czech Technical University Prague (area chair) Alejandro Jaimes, Fuji Denis Lalanne, University of Fribourg Yang Liu, University of Texas at Dallas (area chair) Stephane Marchand-Maillet, University of Geneva Jean-Claude Martin, LIMSI Roderick Murray-Smith, University of Glasgow Nelson Morgan, ICSI Sharon Oviatt, OGI/OHSU (area chair) Andrei Popescu-Belis, University of Geneva (programme chair) Steve Renals, University of Edinburgh Elizabeth Shriberg, SRI and ICSI Rainer Stiefelhagen, University of Karlsruhe (area chair) Jean-Philippe Thiran, EPFL Pierre Wellner, IDIAP Dekai Wu, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Pavel Zemcik, Brno University of Technology *********************************** _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
