Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce that the registration for UIST 2005 is now open!

UIST 2005 in Seattle, WA October 23-26, 2005
We are happy to announce that UIST 2005, the Eighteenth Annual ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology, will be held in Seattle, Washington from October 23-26, 2005. 

UIST is the premier forum for innovations in the software and technology of human-computer interfaces. Sponsored by ACM's special interest groups on computer-human interaction (SIGCHI) and computer graphics (SIGGRAPH), UIST brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse areas that include traditional graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW. The intimate size, the single track, and comfortable surroundings make this symposium an ideal opportunity to exchange research results and implementation experiences.

Join us in Seattle!

The Westin Seattle is your front door to the Emerald City, the jewel of the Pacific Northwest! An ideal urban retreat, it is just steps away from the Washington State Convention Center, Pike Place Market, and Seattle's most enticing shops. 
The Westin Hotel is one of only two hotels in the city offering unobstructed views of Puget Sound, Lake Union, and the Seattle skyline. After a day of meetings and sightseeing, relax and unwind in the elegant Lobby Bar, featuring a full-service bar and flat-screen TVs. For breakfast or lunch stop by the Fifth Avenue Corner Cafe for light fare and snacks. 
Enjoy modern elegance in the Westin's newly renovated lobby, the "heart of the hotel." WiFi Internet access and a cozy gathering space make it perfect for hosting a casual meeting or simply catching up with friends. 
We have reserved a block of rooms at the special conference rate of $169/night per room (single or double occupancy). The Hotel will honor the group rate for reservations in excess of the room block, based on availability. Reservations must be made by Sunday September 24 to obtain this rate. 
Note: Please be sure to register at the conference hotel. UIST receives complimentary use of hotel meeting rooms only if we meet our attendee guest room quota. If we do not meet the quota, we are obligated to pay substantial rental fees for the meeting rooms, which will result in scaled-back food service this year and significantly increased registration fees next year. So, please stay at the conference hotel.
Hotel reservations for The Westin may be made in any of three ways, in each case being sure to mention "ACM UIST 2005":
* Phone: Call the Westin Reservations Department at (206) 728-1000  and 
* Online:  Westin Online Reservations 
* Fax: Send to (206) 728-2259
