Call For Papers
Haptic Voice Recognition (HVR) Grand Challenge 2012 is a research oriented competition designed to bring together researchers across multiple disciplines to work on Haptic Voice Recognition (HVR), a novel multimodal text entry method for modern mobile devices. HVR combines both voice and touch inputs to achieve better efficiency and robustness. As it is now a commonplace that modern portable devices are equipped with both microphones and touchscreen display, it will be interesting to explore possible ways of enhancing text entry on these devices by combining information obtained from these sensors. The purpose of this grand challenge is to define a set of common challenge tasks for researchers to work on in order to address the challenges faced and to bring the technology to the next frontier. Basic tools and setups are also provided to lower the entry barrier so that research teams can participate in this grand challenge without having to work on all aspects of the system. This grand challenge will also be accompanied by a workshop, which will be held at the International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI) 2012 . Participants are given the opportunity to share their innovative findings and engage in discussions concerning current and future research directions during the workshop. Participants will also submit papers to the workshop to report their research findings. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of ICMI 2012.
