MiMI 2011
International Workshop on Multimodality
in Multispace Interaction (MiMI)

Sunport Hall Takamatsu, Takamatsu, Kagawa, Japan
December 1-2, 2011

in association with
Third JSAI International Symposia on AI (JSAI-isAI 2011)

Invited Speakers
Professor Dr. Maria Egbert, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark
Professor Dr. Toyoaki Nishida, Kyoto University, Japan

Important Dates:
* Workshop Submission Deadline: 15 September 2011
* Workshop Author Notification: 15 October 2011
* Workshop Camera-ready: 5 November 2011
* Workshop Date: 1,2 December 2011 (Thursday, Friday)

Aims and Scope
In the last couple of decades, there has been a growing interest in complex
ways in which multimodality including vocal, visual, aural, and gestural
apparatus of speaking is played out in seemingly simple activities such
as an everyday conversation between two people. In this workshop, we
discuss how multispace is managed in socially, temporally, and sequentially
complex environments. Our foci on multispace include, but are not limited
to computer-mediated interactions, media-mediated interaction,
longitudinally established interactional spaces, and multiple cognitive
images within a speaker’s viewpoints for producing language and gesture.
We hope that the reconsideration of theoretical frameworks discussed in
our workshop contributes to recent interdisciplinary attentions to,
among other things, human communication in artificial intelligence,
human-computer interaction, humanoid robotics, human-agent interaction
with distance.

Drawing on various interdisciplinary approaches such as:

* Conversation analysis
* Ethnographic studies
* Human-Computer interactions
* Workplace studies

we welcome contributions related to the following topics, but are not
limited to:

* Computer-mediated interactions (e.g., video conference)
* Media-mediated interaction (e.g., remote human-agent interaction
supported by computer technologies)
* Data mining in real space (e.g., meeting mining)
* Longitudinally established interactional spaces
* Multiple cognitive images within a speaker’s viewpoints for producing
language and gesture (e.g., sign language and gestures in narrative

Paper Submissions
Papers should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer
Verlag LNCS style in a pdf form, which can be obtained from, and not exceed 12 pages including figures,
references, etc. If you use a word file, please follow the instruction of
the format, and then convert it into a pdf form and submit it at:

If a paper is accepted, at least one author of the paper must register
the workshop and present it.

Selected Papers
We also plan to publish a selection of the accepted/invited papers as a
portion of a volume "JSAI-isAI2012 selected papers", which will be published
from `Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence' series (Springer Verlag).
