Second International Conference on


Theory and Applications

Sponsored by the Universities of Brabant
Joint Research Organization (SOBU)
and the ACL Special Interest Group in Multimedia (SIGMEDIA)

Tilburg, The Netherlands, 28-30 January 1998


The Computational Linguistics and Artificial Intelligence Group at
Tilburg University, in collaboration with the Center for Research on
User-System Interaction IPO in Eindhoven, and the Department of
Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology, will host
the Second International Conference on the theory and applications of
Cooperative Multimodal Communication, CMC/98, to take place January
28-30, 1998.

The principal 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:

* cooperativity in multimodal dialogue

* metaphors for human-computer interaction

* communicative acts in multimodal communication

* interacting with visual domain representations

* natural language interpretation in a multimodal context

* effective use of different media and modalities

* formal and computational models of dialogue context

* pragmatic concepts in human-computer dialogue

* the role of time in multimodal communication

* agent-based dialogue architectures

* user modelling

* approaches to dialogue management


Authors are asked to submit an extended abstract of their paper of
minimally 4 and maximally 7 pages, including keywords and references,
by October 1, 1997. Only electronic submission will be possible,
in uuencoded compressed Postscript form, to be sent to tijn@win.tue.nl
and to kievit@kub.nl (two copies).

All extended abstracts will be reviewed by the program committee;
authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper.
Full papers will have to be submitted in Latex form, so it is
advisable to use Latex also for the extended abstract. A Latex style
file available; see the CMC/98 Web page.


Submission of extended abstracts: 1 October, 1997
Notification of acceptance: 1 November, 1997
Final papers due: 1 December, 1997

Attendees are not > required to participate in a roundtable but can, instead, observe the > program proceedings and ask questions at the end of each session. (Each > of these roundtables is moderated by an experienced facilitator.) > > > SPEAKERS > > Dr. Stanley Chodorow, Provost, University of Pennsylvania, will set the > stage for the roundtable discussions on Thursday, February 8 with a talk > on intellectual property issues and scholarly publishing from the > perspective of a chief academic officer who is involved actively in > shaping the academy^Rs position on these issues. > > Mr. Robert Siegel, co-host of National Public Radio^Rs popular news > program, "All Things Considered", returns again this year to moderate > the roundtable discussions. > > > WHO SHOULD ATTEND > > The colloquium series is designed for research library managers and > administrators, scholarly publishing executives and editors, researchers > who create scholarly information, and chief academic officers and other > administrators who develop policies related to the creation and > management of scholarly information.
