MIMIC’10:Fourth International Workshop on Management and Interaction with Multimodal Information Content


in conjunction with the DEXA’10



Bilbao, Spain
University of Deusto
30 August – 3 September 2010


Multimodal data and multimodal interaction are actually emerging issues involving from health to environmental data. They address new approaches for human-machine interaction, machine learning, information retrieval, query processing, data mining and other relevant aspects connected with the complexity the real world, which is widely and intrinsically characterized by multimodality,

The pervasive use of mobile devices, the development of more natural users’ interfaces and the new possibilities offered by the evolution of Web applications, the more and more sophisticated sensors used for health applications, as well as sensors and tools used for security and environmental sensors collect multimodal data and information.

The purpose of this workshop will be to discuss and provide a scenario about: 1) theories and techniques about multimodal information retrieval, multimodal data mining and multimodal databases for indexing, representing, organizing, querying and extracting features from multimodal data, 2) machine learning 3) multimodal interfaces and multimodal interaction languages used in a more natural/flexible Human Machine Interaction approach, 4) the multimodal Web interaction.


Topics of interests include but are not limited to:


�         Multimodal Information Retrieval

�         Multimodal Web Interaction
