MLMI'07 call for posters and demos
(apologies for multiple postings):


                 4th Joint Workshop on Machine Learning
                  and Multimodal Interaction (MLMI'07)

                          28-30 June 2007
                        Brno, Czech Republic

                       http://www.mlmi07.org


* Important dates

Submission of abstracts for posters and demos:  23 March 2007
Acceptance decisions:  17 April 2007
Workshop:  28-30 June 2007


* Guidelines for submission

For posters and/or demonstrations, extended abstracts of 1-2 pages 
should be submitted at http://groups.inf.ed.ac.uk/mlmi07/ (PDF format).

Following the workshop, authors of posters and demonstrations will be 
invited to submit long versions of their presentations (up to 12 pages), 
to be considered for publication in a volume of revised papers.  In 
common with the previous MLMI workshops, all the papers selected by the 
Program Committee will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in 
Computer Science series (cf. LNCS 3361, 3869, 4299).

For the post-conference submission, the Springer LNCS format for 
proceedings and other multiauthor volumes will be required 
(http://www.springer.com/east/home/computer/lncs?SGWID=5-164-7-72376-0).


* Workshop topics

The fourth MLMI workshop will take place in Brno, Czech Republic, 
following successful workshops in Martigny (2004), Edinburgh (2005) and 
Washington, DC (2006).  MLMI brings together researchers from the 
different communities working on the common theme of advanced machine 
learning algorithms applied to multimodal human-human and human-computer 
interaction.  MLMI'07 will follow on directly from the annual conference 
of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL/EACL 2007, Prague, 
June 25-27, 2007).

MLMI'07 will feature talks (including a number of invited speakers), 
posters and demonstrations.  Prospective authors are invited to submit 
proposals in the following areas of interest, related to machine 
learning and multimodal interaction:
  - human-human communication modeling
  - human-computer interaction modeling
  - speech processing
  - image and video processing
  - multimodal processing, fusion and fission
  - multimodal discourse and dialogue modeling
  - multimodal indexing, structuring and summarization
  - annotation and browsing of multimodal data
  - machine learning algorithms and their applications to the topics above


* Satellite events

MLMI'07 will feature special sessions and satellite events such as the 
Summer school of the European Masters in Speech and Language 
(http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/emasters/) and the PASCAL Speech Separation 
Challenge II (http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/mlincol1/SSC2/).  To propose 
other special sessions or satellite events for MLMI'07, please contact 
the organizing committee.


* Venue

Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic and the capital of 
Moravia.  Brno had been a royal city since 1347 and is the country's 
judiciary and trade-fair center.  With a population of almost four 
hundred thousand and its six universities, Brno is also the cultural 
center of the region.

Brno can be easily reached by direct flights from Prague, London and 
Munich and by trains or buses from Prague (200 km) or Vienna (130 km).

MLMI'07 will take place at the Hotel Continental 
(http://www.continentalbrno.cz), a modern hotel located in a quiet part 
of the city within walking distance from the city center.  The local 
organizers are members of the Faculty of Information Technology 
(http://www.fit.vutbr.cz) at Brno University of Technology, which was 
founded in 1899 as the Czech Technological University.
