14 or 15 July, 1991 (to be determined)
Anaheim, CA


Over the past few years there has been increased interest in and
investigation into the utilization of multiple modes of communication
(e.g., textual, graphical, auditory) in intelligent interfaces.
Research in this area is in the formative stages and is just now
beginning to address difficult fundamental problems.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners to report on current advances in multimedia interface
systems and their underlying theories, to foster scientific
interchange among these individuals, and as a group to evaluate
current efforts and make recommendations for future investigations
into multimedia interface technology. A report on the workshop will
be submitted to AI Magazine.


Submissions are invited on original research in all aspects of
multimedia interfaces, including, but not limited to:

* Coordination of multiple modalities, both in terms of input and output
* Planning and realization of multimedia explanations
* Media-dependent and media-independent meaning representation languages
* Architectures for multimedia interfaces
* Discourse and user models for multiple modalities
* Qualitative/quantitative measures and black box/glass box methods
for evaluation of multimedia interfaces
* Philosophical and psycholinguistic models of multimodal interaction


Interested participants should forward FIVE copies of a 4-5 page
(double spaced) position paper addressing a specific intelligent multimedia
interface issue along with a brief description of their research activities
to Mark Maybury, MS-A047, The MITRE Corporation, Bedford, MA 01730
Tel: (617) 271-7230. Submissions must be *received* by March 8, 1991.
