MOG 2010 INLG 2010
Invited Speakers
Practical Information
We welcome submissions on issues such as modality choice, integration of output modalities, and meaning representation for multimodal output generation, where natural language (in the form of either text or speech) is one of the modalities. We aim to have a varied programme that reflects the different research fields involved in multimodal output generation. Possible topics are listed below, but this list is not intended to be exhaustive.
  • Task-based modality choice (domain and data dependencies)
  • User-based modality choice (constraints, preferences and expertise)
  • Cross-references between modalities (e.g., text and graphics)
  • Dependencies between modalities (e.g., speech, mimics and gestures)
  • Relation between input and output modalities
  • Integration of modalities (models, levels, dependencies)
  • Cognitive models for processing multimodal information
  • Computational models for multimodal output generation
  • Models of modality integration based on multimodal discourse analysis
  • Usability and evaluation of existing models
  • Knowledge representation for multimodal output generation
  • Evaluation of (methods for generating) multimodal output
  • Development of multimodal corpora from a generation perspective
  • Affective Computing, evoking and expressing emotion
  • Input formats and representations for multimodal output generation, e.g. FML

The workshop will take place in two consecutive days (July 5-6, 2010). Note that this is provisional depending on the number of submissions. There will be short and long paper presentations, as well as the possibility to present demo systems. The workshop will include plenty of time for discussion.

The Cognitive Science Society sponsors a prize worth $250 (USD) and a membership in the Cognitive Science Society for one year. The prize will be awarded to the best paper paper at the workshop on a cognitive science topic whose main author is a student.
When submitting your paper via EasyChair you will have the option to indicate if the first author is a student applying for the award.

We invite both long papers describing mature research (max. 12 pages) and short papers (max. 6 pages) describing plans, ideas and demos, which could invoke discussion and questions to be addressed in the future.

Accepted papers will be published in the MOG proceedings, with an ISSN number. The proceedings will be published in the Proceedings series of the Centre for Telematics and Information Technology (CTIT) of the University of Twente.

Papers can be submitted via the EasyChair conference system. The submission process requires registration to create an EasyChair account prior to submission. 

We have prepared a MOG 2010 style- and document template file for LaTeX and a template file for Word.  Please follow the instructions described in the template. More instructions are given below.

LaTeX support

For pictures, please use the epsfig.sty or graphics/graphicx package that allows embedding encapsulated postscript (.eps) files.
For bibliographic references we prefer a name-date style. The MOG style forces the use of natbib.sty with apalike.bst. If you want to use the lap citation commands, you can add the class option lap at the very beginning of your document ( \documentclass[lap]{sid}). This is explained in the themplate document. With the lap option \cite gives the author name plus the year without parentheses; \cite* gives only the year. Instead of sending a complete .bib file, rather send the reference list from the .bbl file.

If you have difficulty using LaTeX, please contact us.

Word support
A Microsoft Word template can be found here. Please follow the instructions described in this template file.
