# Apologies for cross postings ***** First Call for Papers ******** ***** Submission deadline: May 29, 2009 ******* ICMI-MLMI 2009 Cambridge, MA, USA, November 2-6 2009 sponsored by ACM SIGCHI The Eleventh International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces and The Sixth Workshop on Machine Learning for Multimodal Interaction will jointly take place in the Boston area from November 2-6, 2009. The main aim of ICMI-MLMI 2009 is to further scientific research within the broad field of multimodal interaction, methods and systems. This joint conference will focus on major trends and challenges in this area, and work to identify a roadmap for future research and commercial success. ICMI-MLMI 2009 will feature a single-track main conference with keynote speakers, panel discussions, technical paper presentations, poster sessions, and demonstrations of state of the art multimodal systems and concepts. It will be followed by workshops. Venue: The conference will take place at the MIT Media Lab, widely known for its innovative spirit. Organized in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, ICMI-MLMI 2009 provides an excellent setting for brainstorming and sharing the latest advances in multimodal interaction, systems, and methods in a city known as one of the top historical, technological, and scientific centers of the US.

The page limit is 8 pages for regular papers and 4 pages for short papers. The presentation style (oral or poster) will be decided by the committee based on suitability and schedule. Demo Submission: Proposals for demonstrations shall be submitted to demo chairs electronically. A two page description with photographs of the demonstration is required. Doctoral Spotlight: Funds are expected from NSF to support participation of doctoral candidates at ICMI-MLMI 2009, and a spotlight session is planned to showcase ongoing thesis work. Students interested in travel support can submit a short or long paper as specified above. Organizing committee General Co-Chairs: James L. Crowley, INRIA, Grenoble, France Yuri A.
