    We present the Dutch IMIX research programme on multimodal interaction, speech and language technology. We discuss our contributions to this programme in the form of two research projects, IMOGEN and VIDIAM, and the technical integration of the various modules developed by IMIX subprojects to build a demonstrator that shows the project’s aims and achievements. In this paper we pay special attention to the role that images could play in iterative question answering.
