Nordic Symposium on Multimodal Communication

27-29 MAY 2011

Room 213, Siltavuorenpenger 5A University of Helsinki

Keynote lecture by Stokes Professor Nick Campbell, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

The 3rd Nordic symposium on multimodal communication aims to provide a multidisciplinary forum for researchers from different disciplines who study multimodality in human communication as well as human-computer interaction. The symposium is organised by the Nordic project on multimodal corpora NOMCO. It continues a tradition established by the Swedish symposia on multimodal communication held in 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000, and continued by the two Nordic symposia on multimodal communication held in 2003 and 2005, and the workshop held in Odense in 2009.

The symposium will be of interest to anyone studying multimodal communication. Although it hopes to provide a picture of the current state-of-the-art of multimodal research in the Nordic countries, researchers from outside of the Nordic region are most welcome.

Topics addressed in the symposium cover all aspects of multimodal
communication, such as:
* Speech and gestures in human communication
* Intercultural aspects of multimodal behaviour
* Multimodality aspects of language acquisition
* Multimodal human computer interaction and conversational agents
* Multimodal dialogue systems
* Multimodal corpora
* Annotation schemes and tools for multimodal corpora
* Automatic recognition and interpretation of different modalities
* Modality fusion
* Motion capture
* Eye-gaze recognition
* Machine-learning techniques applied to multimodal data
* Evaluation methods for multimodal systems
