Call for Papers

The Workshop on Child, Computer and Interaction will be held in Beijing
on November 11-12, 2010. The Workshop is a satellite event of the
Twelfth International Conference on Multi-modal Interfaces, this year
jointly with Machine Learning Multi-modal Interaction (ICMI-MLMI 2010)
that will take place November 8-10, 2010, in the same venue.

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from
universities and industry working in all aspects of child-machine interaction
including computer, robotics and multi-modal interfaces.
Children are special both at the acoustic/linguistic level
but also at the interaction level.
The workshop provides a unique opportunity for bringing together different
research communities from cognitive science, robotics, speech processing,
linguistics and application areas such as medical and education.
Various state-of-the-art components can be presented here as key components
for next generation child centred computer interaction.
Technological advances are increasingly necessary in a world where education
and health pose growing challenges to the core well-being of our societies.
Noticeable examples are remedial treatments for children with or without
disabilities and individualised attention.
The Workshop should serve for presenting recent advancements in core
technologies as well as experimental systems and prototypes.

Technical Scope

The technical scope of the workshop includes, but it is not limited to:

- Speech Interfaces:
  acoustic and linguistic analysis of children's speech,
  discourse analysis of spoken language in child-machine interaction,
  age-dependent characteristics of spoken language,
  automatic speech recognition for children and spoken dialogue systems

- Multi-modality and Robotics:
  multi-modal child-machine interaction,
  multi-modal input and output interfaces, including robotic interfaces,
  intrusive, non-intrusive devices for environmental data processing,
  pen or gesture/visual interfaces

- User Modelling:
  user modelling and adaptation, usability studies accounting for age
  preferences in child-machine interaction

- Cognitive Models:
  internal learning models, personality types, user-centred and
  participatory design

- Application Areas:
  training systems, educational software, gaming interfaces,
  medical conditions and diagnostic tools

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit papers in any technical areas
relevant to the workshop.
The technical committee will select papers for oral/poster presentations.
Demonstrations are especially welcome.
Instructions for paper submission are available at the Workshop website.
An electronic version of the workshop proceedings will be published by ACM.

Deadlines/Important Dates:

Two-page abstract submission: July 14, 2010
Notification of acceptance: July 20, 2010
Four page paper final submission and author's registration: August 20, 2010

Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message.

Thank you and best,
