The 20th International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2018) will be held in Boulder, Colorado. ICMI is the premier international forum for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction, interfaces, and system development. The conference focuses on theoretical and empirical foundations, component technologies, and combined multimodal processing techniques that define the field of multimodal interaction analysis, interface design, and system development.

The University of Colorado Boulder's Institute of Cognitive Science is a Platinum sponsor of this conference, which will be held at the historic Boulderado Hotel.

Conference papers are being solicited from behavioral and social sciences. These papers allow ICMI to understand how technology can be used to increase the scientific knowledge and may focus less on presenting technical or algorithmic novelty.

The deadline to submit long and short papers is May 1, 2018.

ICMI 2018 will feature a single-track main conference which includes: keynote speakers, technical full and short papers (including oral and poster presentations), demonstrations, exhibits and doctoral spotlight papers. The conference will also feature workshops and grand challenges. The proceedings of ICMI 2018 will be published by ACM as part of their series of International Conference Proceedings and Digital Library.

The conference features world-renowned keynote speakers, strictly-reviewed papers for presentation, demonstrations/exhibits, workshops/tutorials, special sessions, grand challenges, and a doctoral consortium. ICMI is keen to showcase novel input and output modalities and interactions to the ICMI community.

The conference attracts researchers in relevant areas of computing science (e.g., AI, machine learning, sensors, cognitive computing) and representatives from innovative companies at the forefront of technological development from around the world. Delegate numbers of around 200 people from a host of countries are typical.
