The Fifth International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces
(ICMI-PUI'03) will be held
ICMI-PUI'03 conference represents the growing interest in
perceptive, adaptive and multimodal user interfaces. These new
interfaces are especially well suited for interpreting natural
communication and activity patterns in real-world environments. Their
emergence represents a radical departure from previous computing, and
is rapidly transforming the nature of human-computer
interaction by creating more natural, expressively powerful, flexible
and robust means of interacting with computers.
of special interest to the conference include multimodal input and
fusion techniques & hybrid architectures, processing of
language and action patterns, gaze and vision-based interfaces, speech
& conversational interfaces, pen-based interfaces, haptics
modeling of users, AI techniques & adaptive multimodal
multibiometric interfaces, multimodal-multisensor
interfaces, interfaces for attentive & intelligent
tangible & virtual/augmented multimodal interfaces,
universal access interfaces, and tools & system infrastructure
issues for designing multimodal interfaces.
The initial ICMI-PUI'03 evening demo-reception and day of program will be held jointly with UIST'03 to celebrate advances in next-generation interfaces of common interest to both communities. The following two days of invited talks, panels, presentations and posters will facilitate smaller group interaction and discussion over single-track presentations and meals. ICMI-PUI'03 proceedings will be published by ACM Press. Interested researchers are invited to submit to any of the following four categories by April 21st:
FULL PAPER describing original research in areas related to multimodal user interfaces.
SHORT PAPER describing late breaking or ongoing research.
PANEL PROPOSAL that presents, debates, or provokes discussion.
DEMO PROPOSAL that displays related implementations or concepts.
Submission details can be found on the Information for Authors page.

BECOME A STUDENT VOLUNTEER for ICMI-PUI'03!
Students can volunteer to assist with the conference. As benefits, they will receive free conference registration and housing, as well as the opportunity to learn about the latest multimodal interface research. Volunteers are expected to spend at most 20 hours helping out during the conference. Volunteers are also expected to attend the entire conference, including arriving at least a couple of hours before the conference starts to help with setup, and staying until the end of the last session. Limited funding also is available for student travel subsidies in cases of financial hardship.
To apply, please send your email address, name, country, school, year in school, degree goal, and previous student volunteering experiences, to Jennifer Mankoff (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for application is September 1st.
