UIST 2011 Call for Papers

Deadline: FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2011 (17:00 PDT)

Papers are the main medium for conveying new research results at
UIST. Submissions are sought that describe original, unpublished work
on user interface interaction techniques, services, devices,
applications, or metaphors. UIST'11 will adopt an anonymous submission
process (similar to CHI) for paper submissions. Please consult the
UIST 2011 Author's Guide for information on paper format and UIST's
policies on previous and simultaneous publications.

Appropriate topics include but are not limited to:

* Significantly novel enabling technologies such as innovative input
 devices, displays, new interaction techniques, or new media that
 extend the boundaries of traditional interaction, such as natural
 user interfaces and interactions, augmented reality, mobile
 interaction, ubiquitous computing (including wearables), social
 software, and computer-supported collaborative work.

* Innovative user interfaces for difficult interaction contexts or
 challenging applications. Examples include managing large, complex
 information sets, usable privacy and security, multi-user
 interaction, crowdsourcing, or techniques that span devices
 distributed in time and space.

* Breakthrough user experiences leveraging techniques such as machine
 learning, computer vision, computer graphics, speech processing,
 networking, or human perception and cognition.

* Innovative software architectures, design tools, toolkits,
 programming systems and development environments that support the
 development and use of the above technologies in user interfaces.

The submission of supplementary videos is encouraged. However, videos
should be no more than five minutes in length and 50MB in size. See
the video guide and the general information above for
details. Rigorous reviewing is a UIST hallmark: each paper will be
reviewed by three to four experts.  Authors of accepted papers will
also be invited to participate in the demo session.

All papers should be submitted electronically to

New for UIST 2011:

Paper length: There is no arbitrary minimum or maximum length imposed
on papers. Rather, reviewers will be instructed to weigh the
contribution of a paper relative to its length. Papers should be
succinct, but thorough in presenting the work.  Typical research
papers will be 10 pages long but papers can be shorter (e.g. 4 pages)
if the contribution is smaller. While we will review papers longer
than 10 pages, the contributions must warrant the extra length.
Shorter, more focused papers (called Tech notes in previous years) are
encouraged, and will be reviewed like any other paper.  Papers whose
length is incommensurate with their contribution will be rejected.

Rejection without Rebuttal: Each paper will be fully reviewed by a
primary reviewer (from the papers committee) and 2 tertiary reviewers
(experts in the area that are not on the committee). If all 3 reviews
fall below a rejection threshold the paper will be rejected at this
stage. Otherwise a secondary reviewer (from the papers committee) will
be asked to write a full review. On June 6, authors will be notified
of their reviews and authors will have the opportunity to submit a
rebuttal if their paper is above the rejection threshold.

Relevant dates:

April 22, 2011: Papers due by 17:00 PDT
June 6-10, 2011: Authors will have the opportunity to provide a 
                rebuttal to reviewer comments. 
June 20, 2011: Authors will be notified of the committee's decision. 

All acceptances will be conditional pending changes that the papers
committee may suggest or require for the final camera-ready draft of
the paper. This means that your paper will not be formally accepted to
UIST until you revise it and submit a final draft for approval by the
program committee. 

July 1, 2011: Authors submit revised conditionally accepted papers to 
             committee for final review. 

July 12, 2010: Final camera ready papers due.

Program Chairs:
Maneesh Agrawala and Scott Klemmer (papers[at], University of
California, Berkeley and Stanford University
