At LREC 2018, we have two workshops focusing on multimodal interaction in real-life situations. To welcome participants in broader research areas and promote more lively discussion, we have decided to jointly organize these two workshops.

The focus of the joint workshop is on “multimodal interaction, using both language and body, in real-life situations”. See the web sites of the respective workshops for more details.
