Dear researchers in various fields involving multimodal communication:

We have received many high-quality abstracts for ICMC2017, but also several alerts that because I announced ICMC2017 mostly through linguistics communities (cogling-l, funknet, cxg), some groups of multimodal researchers missed the call altogether or until it was too late. Since the mission of ICMC2017 is to bring together researchers from currently separated fields to encourage them to collaborate, we are extending the deadline for submissions to 15 February 2017.

We will begin now the process of reviewing abstracts we have received and communicate decisions, but will conduct an additional process of review for additional abstracts received by 15 February 2017. Thanks to you all for your work and advice!

Field(s): Cognitive Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Construction Grammar, Discourse Analysis, Audiovisual Recordings, General Linguistics, Gesture, Paralinguistics, Pragmatics, Text/Corpus Linguistics. We encourage presentations on any aspect of multimodal communication, including topics that deal with language and multimodal constructions, paralinguistics, facial expressions, gestures, cinema, theater, role-playing games, ... The research domains can be drawn from personal interaction, social media, mass media, group communication, ... We invite conceptual papers, observational studies, experiments, and computational, technical, and statistical approaches. All submissions will be reviewed for acceptance.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15-February-2017

Conference organizers: Alexander Bergs, Mark Turner <http://markturner.org/>

Confirmed plenary speakers: Harald Baayen. Alexander von Humboldt Professor, University of Tübingen. Thomas Hoffmann. Professor of Linguistics, Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt. Jungseock Joo. Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at UCLA and Research Scientist at Facebook. “Deep learning and computer vision techniques for human gesture and facial expression analysis.” Irene Mittelberg. Professor of Linguistics and Cognitive Semiotics at the Human Technology Centre (HumTec) at RWTH Aachen University. Mittelberg directs the Natural Media Lab and the Center for Sign Language and Gesture (SignGes). ''Crossmodal clusters: Mapping linguistic constructions and gestural patterns via motion-capture data'' Francis Steen. Professor of Communication Studies, UCLA. Co-director of the Distributed Little Red Hen Lab. Eve Sweetser. Professor of Linguistics, UC-Berkeley. Coordinator, UC-Berkeley Gesture and Multimodality Group. Coordinator, UC-Berkeley Matrix Metaphor research group. Co-PI, MetaNet IARPA research project. ''Viewpoint, creativity and convention in multimodal constructions.'' In addition to plenary talks, parallel sessions, a poster session, and a conference dinner, the conference will feature, on Saturday and Sunday mornings, several plenary workshops on methods by leading methodological experts, each presenting a specific workflow, showing how specific methods can be applied to transform a research question into finished, publishable research products. These workshops will cover, among other topics, new multimodal tools developed in the Red Hen Lab (http://redhenlab.org <http://redhenlab.org/>), Cinepoetics tools for analyzing film and television, tools for gesture analysis, tools for automatic computational visual analysis of facial and gestural communication, and computational tools for finding and analyzing co-speech gesture in a corpus.

The conference will run from about 1:30pm 9 June to about 6:15pm 11 June 2017, Central European Summer Time.

We thank, for their generous support of the conference, Osnabrück University, Case Western Reserve University, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, and the Anneliese-Maier Research Award program of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
