\ \\
Eindhoven University of Technology, in collaboration with the
Institute for Perception Research IPO in Eindhoven and the Institute for
Language Technology and Artificial Intelligence ITK in Tilburg, will host
an international conference on the theory and applications of
cooperative multimodal communication that wil take place in Eindhoven
from 24-26 May 1995. \\
\ \\
The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers involved
in the design, implementation, and application of forms of cooperative
human-computer communication where natural language (typed or spoken)
is used in combination with other modalities, such as visual feedback
and direct manipulation.
The conference will focus on formal, computational, and user aspects
of building cooperative multimodal dialogue systems. Papers are sought
in areas which include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

% \vspace{-5mm}

\item cooperativity in multimodal dialogue
\item natural language semantics in a multimodal context
\item formal and computational models of dialogue context
\item incremental knowledge representation and dialogue
\item interacting with visual domain representations
\item collaborative problem solving and knowledge sharing
\item constraint-based approaches to animation and visual modelling
\item effective use of different interactive modalities
\item modelling temporal aspects of multimodal communication
\item type theory and natural language interpretation
% \item knowledge sharing technologies
