CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
======================
UIST 2007 - The 20th Annual ACM Symposium on User Interface Software  
and Technology (http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2007/)
October 7-10, 2007
Newport, Rhode Island, USA

EXTENDED DEADLINES: Calls for Posters, Demos, and Doctoral Symposium  
are opened until July 2, 2007.

Overview:
=========
This mail contains the calls for
1. Posters,
2. Demos and
3. Doctoral Symposium.
You can review all calls at: http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2007/call/

Important Dates and Deadlines:
==============================
Submission Deadline *EXTENDED*: July 2, 2007
Acceptance Notification: August 3, 2007


1. CALL FOR POSTERS
==================
Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present  
work to conference attendees during special poster sessions. Posters  
provide an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in  
progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than papers or tech notes.
Poster submissions should be in the form of a two-page paper in UIST  
format, describing the research problem, contribution, and value to  
UIST attendees (PDF format). In addition to the two-page paper,  
poster submissions require submitting the poster itself (PDF format).  
Authors may include a video (optional). Video files should be at most  
three minutes long and 30MB in size. See the video guide and the  
general information above for details. Before designing the poster,  
we recommend checking out the UIST 2005 Poster Example Gallery.

Accepted poster abstracts will be published together with demos in  
both a booklet and a DVD distributed to the conference attendees.  
Posters and the optional video may also be published in the DVD, at  
the authors' discretion. Poster abstracts and previews should be  
submitted electronically to http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi.

Posters will be displayed on corkboards during conference break  
periods. We expect to be able to accommodate posters of up to 3 feet  
by 4 feet (either vertical or horizontal), so we suggest using that  
size or smaller for your prototype. (Many authors have found it  
easiest to create a slide in PowerPoint and have a copy shop print it  
at 400% magnification.) In addition, poster authors are expected to  
give a 60-second presentation of their work at the conference (1- 
minute madness). Authors will be notified of poster results on or  
before August 3.

Important Dates and Deadlines:
==============================
Submission Deadline *EXTENDED*: July 2, 2007
Acceptance Notification: August 3, 2007
Final Version Due: August 21, 2007

2. CALL FOR DEMOS
=================
Peer-reviewed demonstrations show early implementations of novel,  
interesting, and important interaction concepts or user interface  
systems. They can also serve to showcase commercial products not  
previously described in the research literature. Demonstrations  
should be brief, so that they can be shown repeatedly. We  
particularly encourage demos with which attendees can interact.

Accepted demos will be published, together with posters, in a booklet  
distributed to UIST attendees. UIST will showcase accepted demos at a  
demo reception on Monday evening, October 8. We will also invite  
authors of accepted papers and TechNotes to present their work at the  
demo reception.

A demo submission consists of an extended abstract that should be no  
more than two ACM conference pages in length. Any accompanying video  
should be at most three minutes long and 30MB in size. See the video  
guide and the general information above for details. Both the demo  
abstract and the optional digital video should be submitted  
electronically to http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi. Authors  
who need to submit a physical videotape should contact Andy Wilson  
directly. Authors will be notified of demo results on or before  
August 3.

3. DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM
===================
The UIST Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can  
meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of  
experienced UIST researchers in an informal and interactive setting.  
We welcome applications from current Ph.D. students studying within  
the full range of disciplines and approaches that contribute to the  
UIST community. We will give preference to applicants beyond the  
proposal stage and well into their dissertation research. Each  
applicant should provide a short written paper (no more than four  
pages in normal UIST format). This paper should describe ongoing work  
and might summarize the student's full dissertation work, or  
highlight a particular part in depth.

The Doctoral Symposium committee will select approximately eight  
participants who will be expected to give a short presentation of  
their work, which will be followed by an extensive discussion. In  
addition, each student is encouraged to present a poster describing  
their work to the full conference. Participants will be selected  
based on their anticipated contribution to the breadth and depth of  
the intellectual discussions of the Symposium.

The symposium will start with an informal dinner Saturday evening,  
October 6th, continue all day Sunday, October 7, and conclude with  
poster presentations at the UIST opening reception Sunday evening.  
Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in the UIST conference  
companion distributed at the conference. We anticipate that a travel  
stipend and free registration to the UIST conference will be provided  
to each participant.

Doctoral Symposium papers and poster sketches should be submitted  
electronically to http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi.Authors  
will be notified of DS results on or before August 3.
