We welcome works aimed at exploring different approaches to multimodal communication, including research on multimodality in human communication and/or in human-computer interaction. In addition, this year’s symposium has a particular interest in three main research themes:
- the language-specific characteristics of gesture-speech interaction
- multimodal prominence
- the conceptual and statistical modelling of multimodal contributions, with particular regard to head movements and the use of gaze
Therefore, we particularly encourage contributions dealing with––but not limited to––the three topics described above.
We provide a detailed list of topics below.
- Speech, gestures and signs in human communication
- Intercultural aspects of multimodal behaviour
- Multimodal aspects of language acquisition (both L1 and L2)
- Multimodal learning
- Multimodal language processing
- Multimodal human computer interaction and conversational agents
- Multimodal systems for sign language users
- Multimodal health communication
- Multimodal communication disorders and communication support
- Multimodal dialogue systems
- Multimodal corpora
- Sign language corpora
- Annotation schemes and tools for multimodal corpora
- Automatic recognition and interpretation of different modalities and their interaction
- Machine-learning techniques applied to multimodal data
This symposium is generously supported by the International Research Network on Gestures and Head Movements in Language (GEHM) and by the Department of Translation and Language Sciences at Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
