OVERVIEW

The third MLMI workshop is coming to Washington DC, USA, following
successful workshops in Martigny, Switzerland (2004) and Edinburgh, UK
(2005).  MLMI is a joint workshop that brings together researchers
from the different communities working on the common theme of advanced
machine learning algorithms for processing and structuring multimodal
human interaction.  The motivation for creating this
multi-disciplinary workshop arose from an actual need in several of
the sponsoring projects.

The workshop will feature  talks (including a number of invited
speakers), posters, and demonstrations.  In common with MLMI'05, the
workshop will be immediately followed by the NIST meeting recognition
workshop, centering on the Rich Transcription 2006 Meeting Recognition
(RT-06) evaluation.  This workshop will take place at the same
location during 3-4 May 2006.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers, extended abstracts,
or demonstration proposals in the following areas of interest, related
to multimodal interaction:

    * human-human communication modeling
    * speech processing
    * visual processing
    * multimodal processing, fusion and fission
    * multimodal discourse and dialog modeling
    * human-human interaction modeling
    * multimodal indexing, structuring, summarization and presentation
    * multimodal annotation
    * applications and HCI issues
    * machine learning applied to the above

In common with MLMI'04 and MLMI'05, the workshop proceedings will be
published by Springer, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series.
