Workshop Chairs Steffen Staab & Yasuyuki Sumi ****************************************************************************************** Workshop 1 First International Workshop on Cognitive Prostheses and Assisted Communication (CPAC) Various prostheses have been developed to help people with physical impairments, by replacing lost or underdeveloped abilities, and these have played an important part in facilitating the person's social participation. Providing prostheses for lost or underdeveloped cognitive abilities, however, presents a challenge of a different order. Some work on memory aids and daily schedule management systems has shown promise, but progress in this field will depend upon keeping up to date with our advancing knowledge about cognition generally as well as emerging technologies which could be platforms for various kinds of cognitive support. This workshop will offer the opportunity for researchers in the fields of assistive technology, cognitive psychology, user interface design and context-awareness to present the state of the art in each field and to discuss an approach and a research agenda for realizing effective cognitive prostheses. While the intended audience for this workshop includes those with experience or interest in Assistive Technology especially for people with dementia and their care, it is also crucial to have participation by those with expertise in other areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent User Interface Design, Context-aware systems, and Cognitive Psychology.

MU3I 2006 is a discussion-oriented workshop inviting position papers of up to two pages.

However, it becomes an increasingly important area for many sectors (e.g., government and financial). The main purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested in developing and applying the state-of-art intelligent user interface (IUI) technologies to enhance intelligence analysis. Ideally, the developed IUI technologies or tools can capitalize on human strength (e.g., reasoning and detecting visual patterns) and compensate for human weakness in a process of intelligence analysis. We welcome paper submissions (2-4 pages), system demos (1-2 pages), and panel proposals (1-2 pages that address issues in the following areas: - Identify key research areas and challenges in designing and developing intelligent user interface technologies for intelligence analysis. - Identifying practical applications that can leverage IUI technologies to benefit intelligence analysis - Identify unclassified data sets for evaluation and activities to create common standards For the full call for papers and information on previous workshops, please refer to http://isweb.uni-koblenz.de/ia2005 ****************************************************************************************** Workshop 4 Effective Multimodal Dialogue Interfaces This workshop addresses the issue of evaluating multimodal dialogue systems, in particular the characteristics and interaction styles that are particularly effective for human-machine collaborative task performance. These may include features that are known to be effective and important in human-human interaction. Conversely, it may be the case that certain effective interaction design decisions (e.g. for overcoming speech-recognition error) are less .natural.. We encourage participation by dialogue system and HCI researchers, interaction designers, as well as linguists, psychologists, and sociologists interested in human-human interaction and in evaluation of effective human-machine interaction. The workshop format will involve both longer presentations and shorter responses and position statements, as well as discussion sessions and panels. Targeted outcomes of the workshop include a better understanding of how to design and build multimodal dialogue interfaces that support successful collaborative task performance, and a method and set of metrics for evaluating such interfaces and their effectiveness.
