Topics and Submission Guidelines



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:

  1. the language-specific characteristics of gesture-speech interaction
  2. multimodal prominence
  3. 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
