Call For Papers

*** 1st Call for Papers ***
LREC 2010 Workshop on
Multimodal Corpora: Advances in Capturing, Coding and Analyzing
Multimodality
*** 18 May 2010, Malta ***

http://www.multimodal-corpora.org

A "Multimodal Corpus" involves the recording, annotation and analysis of
several communication modalities such as speech, hand gesture, facial
expression, body posture, etc. As many research areas are moving from
focused but single modality research to fully-fledged multimodality
research, multimodal corpora are becoming a core research asset and an
opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, concepts and data.

This workshop follows similar events held at LREC 00, 02, 04, 06, 08.
There is an increasing interest in multimodal communication and
multimodal corpora as visible by European Networks of Excellence and
integrated projects such as HUMAINE, SIMILAR, CHIL, AMI, CALLAS and
SSPNet. Furthermore, the success of recent conferences and workshops
dedicated to multimodal communication (ICMI-MLMI, IVA, Gesture, PIT,
Nordic Symposium on Multimodal Communication, Embodied Language
Processing) and the creation of the Journal of Multimodal User
Interfaces also testify to the growing interest in this area, and the
general need for data on multimodal behaviours.

The 2010 full-day workshop is planned to result in a significant
follow-up publication, similar to previous post-workshop publications
like the 2008 special issue of the Journal of Language Resources and
Evaluation and the 2009 state-of-the-art book published by Springer.


AIMS

In 2010, we are aiming for a wide cross-section of the field, with
contributions on collection efforts, coding, validation and analysis
methods, as well as actual tools and applications of multimodal corpora.
However, we want to put emphasis on the fact that there have been
significant advances in capture technology that make highly accurate
data available to the broader research community. Examples are the
tracking of face, gaze, hands, body and the recording of articulated
full-body motion using motion capture. These data are much more accurate
and complete than simple videos that are traditionally used in the field
and therefore, will have a lasting impact on multimodality research.
However, the richness of the signals and the complexity of the recording
process urgently call for an exchange of state-of-the-art information
regarding recording and coding practices, new visualization and coding
tools, advances in automatic coding and analyzing corpora.


TOPICS

This LREC 2010 workshop on multimodal corpora will feature a special
session on databases of motion capture, trackers, inertial sensors,
biometric devices and image processing. Other topics to be addressed
include, but are not limited to:

* Multimodal corpus collection activities (e.g. direction-giving
dialogues, emotional behaviour, human-avatar interaction, human-robot
interaction, etc.) and descriptions of existing multimodal resources

* Relations between modalities in natural (human) interaction and
in human-computer interaction

* Multimodal interaction in specific scenarios, e.g. group
interaction in meetings

* Coding schemes for the annotation of multimodal corpora

* Evaluation and validation of multimodal annotations

* Methods, tools, and best practices for the acquisition,
creation, management, access, distribution, and use of multimedia and
multimodal corpora

* Interoperability between multimodal annotation tools (exchange
formats, conversion tools, standardization)

* Collaborative coding

* Metadata descriptions of multimodal corpora

* Automatic annotation, based e.g. on motion capture or image
processing, and the integration with manual annotations

* Corpus-based design of multimodal and multimedia systems, in
particular systems that involve human-like modalities either in input
(Virtual Reality, motion capture, etc.) and output (virtual characters)

* Automated multimodal fusion and/or generation (e.g., coordinated
speech, gaze, gesture, facial expressions)

* Machine learning applied to multimodal data

* Multimodal dialogue modelling


IMPORTANT DATES

* Deadline for paper submission (complete paper): 12 February 2010
* Notification of acceptance: 10 March
* Final version of accepted paper: 26 March
* Final program: 7 April
* Final proceedings: 14 April
* Workshop: 18 May


SUBMISSIONS

The workshop will consist primarily of paper presentations and
discussion/working sessions. Submissions should be 4 pages long, must be
in English, and follow the submission guidelines available under
http://multimodal-corpora.org/mmc10.html

Submit your paper here: https://www.softconf.com/lrec2010/MMC2010

Demonstrations of multimodal corpora and related tools are encouraged as
well (a demonstration outline of 2 pages can be submitted).
