Looking forward to receiving your contributions!
Apologies for multiple posting.
1st Intl. Workshop on Multimodal Interaction for Education (MIE 2017)
In the framework of the 19th ACM International Conference on Multimodal
Interaction (ICMI 2017)
Glasgow, Scotland. November 13th, 2017
--- Call for Papers ---
Whilst the usage of multisensory technologies in the education area is
rapidly expanding, the need for solid scientific bases, design guidelines,
and appropriate procedures for evaluation is emerging. Moreover, the
introduction of multimodal interactive systems in the learning environment
needs to develop at the same time suitable pedagogical paradigms. The 1st
International Workshop on Multimodal Interaction for Education (MIE2017)
aims at investigating how multimodal interactive systems, robustly grounded
on psychophysical, psychological, and pedagogical bases, can be designed,
developed, and exploited for enhancing teaching and learning processes in
different learning environments, with a special focus on children in the
classroom. The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners
from different disciplines, including pedagogy, psychology, psychophysics,
and computer science - with a particular focus on human-computer
interaction, affective computing, and social signal processing - to discuss
such challenges under a multidisciplinary perspective.
The workshop is partially supported by the EU-H2020-ICT Project weDRAW
(http://www.wedraw.eu/). The goal of weDRAW is to introduce a new teaching
paradigm, based on multisensory interaction, that exploits the most
effective sensory channel in children.
A special issue of a journal based on selected contributions from the
workshop is planned.
*** Workshop topics
We encourage submissions including, but not limited to, the following
- Open challenges in multisensory technologies for education;
- Pedagogical frameworks and paradigms exploiting multimodal interaction;
- Psychophysics evidence supporting multimodal interaction for education;
- Design methodologies of multimodal interactive systems for education;
- Techniques for multimodal analysis of learners behavior;
- Models of multimodal interaction in the learning environment;
- Multimodal analysis of learning-related affective states;
- Multimodal analysis of social signals in the learning environment;
- Multimodal interfaces for education;
- Methodologies for assessment and evaluation;
- Case studies;
- Systems and applications (e.g., serious games).
*** Author instructions
We invite the submission of long papers (max 8 pages), short papers (max 4
pages), and demos (max 4 pages) with accompanying poster. According to the
ICMI 2017 guidelines, the reviewing will be double blind, so submissions
should be anonymous: do not include the authors' names, affiliations or any
clearly identifiable information in the paper. It is appropriate to cite
past work of the authors if these citations are treated like any other
(e.g., "Smith  approached this problem by....") - omit references only if
it would be obviously identifying the authors. If a non-anonymous paper has
already been submitted, please re-submit with the identifying information
removed. The workshop chairs are likely to desk reject non-anonymous papers.
The results described in the submission must not be under consideration for
publication elsewhere. Submitted papers should conform to the ACM
For templates and examples please follow the links:
For more information on how to format your contribution please look also at
the submission guidelines of the ICMI Conference.
The papers should be submitted to EasyChair:
The workshop proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
