                                CALL FOR PAPERS

                                    AVI 2008
                           Advanced Visual Interfaces
                        International Working Conference
               In cooperation with ACM-SIGCHI, ACM-SIGMM, SIGCHI Italy

				  May 28-30, 2008 - Napoli, Italy
                     http://hci.uniroma1.it/avi2008/index.html

The 9th International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces
(AVI‚08) will be held in Naples,
Italy, May 28-30, 2008. Started in 1992 in Rome, and held every two years
in different Italian towns, the
Conference traditionally brings together experts in different areas of
computer science who have a
common interest in the conception, design and implementation of visual
and, more generally, perceptual
interfaces. Through the years, the Conference has witnessed the growing
interest within the community
for mobile devices such as smartphones, palmtops and PDAs, in the
framework of both traditional and
emerging environments, such as ubiquitous and pervasive computer
applications. Both formal methods
and concrete applications well fit into the framework of the conference,
whose program also includes
invited talks given by leaders in the field. Submissions are solicited in
the broad list of areas given below,
with special emphasis on the following specific topics, without being
limited to them:

                           PAPER AND DEMO SUBMISSION

We strongly encourage submissions that address research and development on
the
above and other related topics, or that propose new approaches suitable for
fulfilling the demands that characterize advanced interfaces of the next
generation. Three kinds of contribution are solicited:

- Research papers describing original and unpublished work,
  up to 8 pages in ACM SIG Proceedings format.
  (http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html).
- Poster papers describing promising work in progress. Poster papers up to
4 pages in
  ACM SIG Proceedings format, and might be presented at the conference as
posters.
- System papers (prototypes demonstrations), up to 2 pages in ACM SIG
Proceedings
  format. System papers will be accompanied by a demonstration of the
software
  prototype, and should include a description of hw/sw requirements on a
separate
  sheet. Demonstrators may either use their personal laptops, or provide a
full
  working version of accepted prototypes, ready for installation.

(*) Papers will be submitted electronically. Detailed information on
electronic submission
will be provided at the AVI 2008 web site:
http://hci.uniroma1.it/avi2008/index.html.

Papers from all categories will be included in the Proceedings published
by ACM Press.


                      PROTOTYPE DEMONSTRATION SUBMISSION

The Exhibit Program will primarily consist of demonstrations of software
prototypes. The demonstration proposal should include a detailed
project/system
description specifying hw/sw requirements. A full working version of accepted
prototypes must be available for installation by May 14th, 2008.

               TUTORIAL AND WORKSHOP PROPOSAL SUBMISSION

Tutorials - Tutorials provide conference participants with the opportunity to
gain new insights in the area of advanced visual interfaces. The tutorial
proposal must be between two and three pages in length, and contain the
following information:

 -  A brief description of the tutorial.
 -  A detailed outline of the tutorial.
 -  Characterization of the tutorial as introductory, intermediate or
advanced.
 -  Length of the tutorial (half-day, full-day).
 -  Characterization of the potential target audience, including prerequisite
    knowledge and a description of why the tutorial topic would be of
interest
    to a substantial number of AVI participants.
 -  A brief resume of the presenter, which should include name, postal
address,
    phone and fax numbers, e-mail address, background in the tutorial
area, evidence
    of experience in research in the considered area, and evidence of
teaching
    experience.

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the quality of the
proposal, their benefits to participants and their fit within the overall
programme of AVI 2008. Factors to be considered include relevance, timeliness
and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half-day or full-day
format; use of appropriate presentation methods and exercises; past
experience
and qualifications of the instructors.

Tutorials that advocate a single avenue of research or promote products
will not
be considered.

Accepted tutorials might be later canceled if too few attendees register
for the
tutorial to support the costs of running it.

Workshops - The purpose of workshops is to provide an informal setting where
participants have the opportunity to discuss specific topics in an atmosphere
that fosters the active exchange of ideas. The workshop proposal must be
between
two and three pages in length, and contain the following information:

 -  A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop
    goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
 -  A discussion of why the workshop is relevant to AVI 2008 and to whom the
    workshop is of interest in the AVI community.
 -  A preliminary workshop agenda and a proposed schedule for organizing the
    workshop. This should include a brief description of how the
organizers intend
    to encourage an atmosphere appropriate for a workshop.
 -  (If available) a list of tentatively confirmed attendees.
 -  (If available) a list of related workshops held within the last three
years
    and their relation to the proposed workshop.
 -  The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the
    proposed workshop organizing committee. These people must be
knowledgeable about
    the technical issues to be addressed and cannot all work at the same
    institution.
 -  The name of the primary contact for the organizing committee.
 -  A description of the qualifications of the individual committee members
    with respect to the workshop topics.
 -  (If available) a list of workshops previously arranged by members of the
    proposed committee.

Workshop and tutorial proposal must be sent as PDF e-mail attachments to
