CALL FOR PAPERS:

       2nd Joint Workshop on Multimodal Interaction and
            Related Machine Learning Algorithms
                         MLMI'05

              http://groups.inf.ed.ac.uk/mlmi05

                      11-13 July 2005,
                  Royal College of Physicians,
                       Edinburgh, UK

The second MLMI workshop is coming to Edinburgh, UK, 11-13 July, 2005
follows from the first successful MLMI'04 held in Martigny,
Switzerland, June 2004 (http://www.idiap.ch/events/workshop-mlmi04/).

The topics covered by the MLMI'05 workshop are the following:

    * human-human communication modeling
    * speech and visual processing
    * multi-modal processing, fusion and fission
    * multi-modal dialog modeling
    * human-human interaction modeling
    * multi-modal data structuring and presentation
    * multimedia indexing and retrieval
    * meeting structure analysis
    * meeting summarizing
    * multimodal meeting annotation
    * machine learning applied to the above


We particularly welcome all theoretical and applied machine learning
papers targeting large and complex datasets such as those involved in
multimodal interaction.

The workshop will be sponsored by several european and national
projects, including AMI, CHIL, HUMAINE, PASCAL, SIMILAR, IM2,
etc. (more information on the sponsors available on the website).

Key Dates:

Guidelines for submissions:

The submitted papers should follow the Springer LNCS format and be 12
pages maximum per full paper. Extended abstracts of 2 pages maximum
