CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS
January 29, 2006 to February 1, 2006 (Tutorials: January 29, 2006)
IUI 2006 is the annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community
and serves as the principal international forum for reporting
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces.
Tutorials provide conference participants with the opportunity to gain
new insights, knowledge, and skills in intelligent user interfaces.
Tutorial topics may range from practical guidelines and standards to
academic issues and theory. Proposals will be reviewed by the tutorial
Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:
- Introduce novices to major topics concerning intelligent user
- Provide instruction in established practices and methodologies.
- Survey a mature area of IUI research and/or practice.
- Motivate and explain an IUI topic of emerging importance.
- Introduce IUI experts to an IUI subarea in which they are not
Tutorials may last a half day or a full day. Half-day tutorials are
three hours long (not including breaks). Full-day tutorials are six
hours long (not including breaks).
Proposals due August 15, 2005
Notification of acceptance August 29, 2005
Tutorial announcement due September 5, 2005
Camera-ready summary due November 14, 2005
Tutorial date January 29, 2006
Those interested in presenting a tutorial should submit a proposal to
the Tutorial Chairs by email with a maximum length of 5 pages in PDF.
A tutorial proposal should contain the following information:
- Title. Title of the tutorial
- Description. A brief description of the tutorial, suitable for
inclusion in the conference registration brochure, including both a
one-sentence and a one-paragraph description.
- Duration. Duration of your tutorial (half- or full-day).
- Objective. Indicate which of the objectives listed above are best
served by the proposed tutorial.
- Justification. An explanation of why the tutorial topic would be of
interest to a substantial part of the IUI audience.
- Audience. Characterization of the potential target audience for the
tutorial, including prerequisite knowledge.
- Outline. A detailed outline of the tutorial including a tentative
schedule of topics to be dealt with with time allocations.
- Instructor Biography. A brief resume of the instructor(s), which
should include name, postal address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail
address, background in the tutorial area, any available example of
work in the area (ideally, a published tutorial-level article or
slides on the subject), evidence of teaching experience, and
evidence of scholarship in IUI, AI, and/or HCI.
- Requirements. List any materials needed to run the tutorial, such as
audio/visual needs, supplies for each participant, and/or
limitations on the number of participants.
Tutorials are intended to provide an overview of the field and should
therefore present well-established information in a balanced way.
Tutorials should not advocate a single avenue of research or promote a
If the proposed tutorial has been given previously, the proposal
should include information about where the tutorial has been given and
how it will be modified for IUI 2006. If the tutorial has been given
at a previous IUI conference, describe how changes to the tutorial
will address comments from previous attendees. Additional materials
may be submitted, but they will not necessarily be taken into
consideration in the review process.
The presenters will be asked to prepare substantial tutorial notes,
which should include:
- An introduction to the topic
- Copies of all overhead transparencies and slides
- An annotated bibliography
- Copies of relevant background material or scholarly papers (for
which the instructors have obtained any necessary reprint
- Material for any tutorial exercises
Printing of tutorial notes will be done by the conference organization.
Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their estimated
benefit for prospective participants and on their fit within the
tutorial program as a whole. Factors to be considered include:
- Relevance, timeliness, importance, audience appeal, and attendance
- Suitability for presentation in a half-day or a full-day tutorial
- Use of presentation methods that offer participants direct
experience with the material being taught
- Past experience and qualifications of the instructors
Selection will also be based on the overall distribution of topics,
approaches (overview, theory, methodology, how-to), audience
experience levels, and specialties of the intended audiences.
A one page advance summary of each tutorial will appear in the
Proceedings of the 9th ACM International Conference on Intelligent
Compensation for presenting a tutorial will include one complimentary
conference registration (assuming a minimum number of 10 participants
at the tutorial who are registered by the time the tutorials begin).
