========== DETAILS (also at http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2009/call/index.html)

UIST (ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology) is the premier forum for innovations in the software and technology of human-computer interfaces. Sponsored by the ACM 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, single track, and comfortable surroundings make this symposium an ideal opportunity to exchange research results and implementation experiences.

Submission deadline for posters, demos, and doctoral symposium proposals:
Tuesday, June 30, 2009, 11:59PM PDT

Notification of acceptance:
Friday, July 24, 2009

Final camera-ready versions due:
Monday, August 10, 2009



========== 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.

A poster submission should be in the form of a two-page paper in UIST abstract format, describing the research problem, contribution, and value to UIST attendees.  Note that poster submission, unlike paper and tech note submission, is *not* anonymous.  In addition to the two-page paper, poster submissions require submitting a sketch of the poster itself.  Both the paper and poster should be submitted as PDF files.  Authors may also include a video (optional). Video files should be at most three minutes long and 50MB in size.

See the video guide:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2009/call/VideoGuide.html

...and the general submission information:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2009/call/index.html#GenInfo


Before designing your poster, we recommend checking out the UIST 2005 Poster Example Gallery:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2005/posterexamplegallery.html

Accepted poster abstracts will be published together with demonstration and doctoral symposium abstracts in both a booklet and a DVD distributed to conference attendees. Posters and videos 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, and will be presented at an evening session during the conference. 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. In addition, poster authors are expected to give a 40-second presentation of their work at the conference as part of the "UIST madness" session.

Authors will be notified of poster results on or before Friday, July 24, 2009. Final abstracts will be due Monday, August 10, 2009.

========== CALL FOR DEMONSTRATIONS ==========

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 demonstration abstracts will be published together with poster and doctoral symposium abstracts in both a booklet and a DVD distributed to conference attendees. Videos may also be published in the DVD, at the authors' discretion. UIST will showcase accepted demos at an evening demo reception during the conference. In addition, demo presenters are expected to give a 40-second summary of their work at the conference as part of the "UIST madness" session. We will also invite authors of accepted papers and tech notes to present their work at the demo reception.

A demo submission consists of an extended abstract in UIST abstract format that should be no more than two pages in length. Note that demo submission, unlike paper and tech note submission, is *not* anonymous.   Submitting an accompanying video is optional, but highly encouraged. Any submitted video should be at most three minutes long and 50MB in size. See the video guide:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2009/call/VideoGuide.html

...and the general submission information:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2009/call/index.html#GenInfo


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 the Demos chairs directly. Authors will be notified of demo results on or before Friday, July 24, 2009. Final abstracts will be due Monday, August 10, 2009.

Demos chairs:
Xiang Cao ([log in to unmask]), Microsoft Research Cambridge
Pierre Dragicevic ([log in to unmask]), INRIA



========== CALL FOR DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM PRESENTATIONS ==========

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 in UIST abstract format that should be no more than four pages in length. See the author guide at:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2009/call/AuthorGuide.html

Note that Doctoral Symposium submission, unlike paper and tech note submission, is *not* anonymous.

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 students to participate. Each student will be expected to give a short presentation of their work, which will be followed by extensive discussion with the panel and the other student participants. In addition, each student is encouraged to present a poster describing his or her work to the full conference. (See the Call for Posters for information about poster width and height constraints.) Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the symposium.

The symposium will start with an informal dinner Saturday evening, October 3rd, continue all day Sunday, October 4th, and conclude with poster presentations at the UIST demo/poster reception. Doctoral Symposium abstracts will be published together with poster and demonstration abstracts in both a booklet and a DVD distributed to conference attendees. Posters may also be published in the DVD, at the participant's discretion. 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 Doctoral Symposium results on or before Friday, July 24, 2009.

Doctoral Symposium Chair:
Steven Feiner ([log in to unmask]), Columbia University
