Meeting URL: http://www.cst.dk/mumin/mmnordic03.html

Linguistic Sub-field: Computational Linguistics, Cognitive Science
Call Deadline: 30-Apr-2003

Meeting Description:

This is the first Nordic symposium on multimodal communication. It
aims to bring together researchers from all disciplines studying
multimodal interaction. The symposium, which is organised by the
Nordic network on multimodal interaction Mumin, continues a tradition
established by the Swedish symposia on Multimodal Communication held
in 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000.

The workshop will be of interest to anyone studying multimodal
communication, and deal with theoretical as well as practical research
issues related to multimodal communication. In particular, we would
like to address the question of the extent to which insights coming
from human communication can be used to design and build good
multimodal applications. Topics addressed in the symposium cover all
aspects of multimodal communication, such as:

      Multimodal human computer interaction and conversational agents
      Human interaction
      Mediated human interaction in multimodal media
      Dialogue management for multimodal communication
      Investigations on multimodal interaction
      Multimodal corpora
      Gestures and their interpretation
      Modality fusion
      Methods for the development of multimodal dialogue systems
      Development and maintenance of shared knowledge sources in
multimodal applications
      Techniques for automatic construction of ontologies for
multimodal systems
      Investigations of how a domain ontology can be used by the
different modules in a multimodal dialogue system
      Machine-learning techniques applied to multimodal systems
      Evaluation methods for multimodal systems

Submissions

Potential participants are invited to submit extended abstracts on the
topics outlined above. Submissions should be no longer than 6 (six)
pages.  Electronic submissions (in postscript format) should be sent
to: mmnordic03 at cst.dk

The accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings
which will be distributed to each participant.
