This paper presents the final MIAMM system, a multimodal dialogue system that employs speech, haptic interaction and novel techniques of information visualization to allow a natural and fast access to large multimedia databases on small handheld devices. Navigation in large, complex and multidimensional information spaces is still a challenging task. The search is even more difficult in small devices such as MP3 players, which only have a reduced screen and lack of a proper keyboard.
