Call for Workshop Proposals

IUI 2012 - ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces

Submission deadline: Friday, Sept 16th, 2011

Instructions and templates:

Background and Motivation

Workshops provide a forum for focused discussions on research topics
of current interest. They offer an opportunity for researchers,
practitioners, and users with similar interests to exchange ideas,
share new findings, and brainstorm future directions.

We cordially invite proposals for half- or full-day workshops that
address emerging new topics or new perspectives on current topics,
pertinent to intelligent user interfaces. Researchers working on
various areas within the IUI community are encouraged to submit
proposals. The workshops will be held on February 14, 2011, the first
day of the conference.

Submission Requirements

The length of the proposals is limited to 3 pages formatted according
to the ACM's SIGCHI style. The proposals should contain the following
information to judge the importance, quality, and relevance for IUI:

General information
* Workshop title
* Name, affiliation, and email of each organizer
* Primary contact person
* Motivation, objectives, and specific issues.
* Motivation: What is the topic of the workshop? How is the
topic related to IUI? Why is the topic of particular interest at this
time? If the workshop has been organized in the past, please provide
details and describe why it should be held again and how improvements
will be made.
* Objectives: What are the objectives that the workshop aims to
achieve? Objectives may include (a) targeting predefined questions,
(b) presenting alternate view on the topic, (c) identifying new
research directions, and/or (d) establishing research collaborations.
* Specific issues on which the workshop will focus.
* Potential participants and workshop publicity:
* Potential Participants: A brief discussion of why and to whom
the workshop is of interest. State your estimate of the number of
participants. If possible, give a list of tentatively confirmed
* Workshop Publicity: Indicate how you plan to publicize the
workshops and attract submissions and participants. If you plan to
edit a book or a journal special issue as a result of your workshop,
please indicate this.

* Describe the workshop format, including the planned activities
(invited talk, plenary, poster, and discussion sessions, hands-on
practice, panels, demos) and how the activities address the workshop
objectives. Preference will be given to proposals that spark
discussions and interaction among participants. Provide a preliminary
schedule. For a half-day workshop, plan for 3 hours with a coffee
break. For a full-day workshop, plan for 6 hours with a lunch break
and two coffee breaks. We encourage full day workshops.

*       Provide a one-paragraph bio for each organizer, describe their
relevance to the workshop topics, and previous experience in
organizing workshops or conferences.
*       Provide names and affiliations of the program committee
members, if available. The program committee should preferably include
members from at least two institutions.

Workshop Topics

Topics of interest for IUI include all aspects of intelligent user
interfaces. The topics include but are certainly not limited to the

*   Intelligent interaction with devices
*   Intelligent interactions with handheld devices such as mobile
phones, music and video players, GPS, cameras, electronic books, etc.
*   Sensor- and actuator systems for user interfaces
*   Location- and context aware information systems
*   Tangible interaction with smart artifacts
*   Ubiquitous displays environments
*   Smart environments
*   Novel, intelligent interaction systems
*   Modeling and prediction of user behavior
*   Affective, social and aesthetic interfaces
*   Natural user interfaces including tangible computing and body computing
*   User-adaptivity in interactive systems
*   Personalization and recommender systems
*   Planning and plan recognition
*   IUI design
*   Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design and generation
*   Proactive and agent-based paradigms for user interaction
*   Example-based and demonstration-based interfaces
*   Smart use of sensing technologies for IUI Design
*   User studies
*   User studies concerning intelligent interfaces
*   Evaluation methods and evaluations of implemented intelligent user
*   Smart technologies for remote usability testing and experience sampling
*   Processing of human-generated input
*   Recognition and interpretation of user input (face, body, speech,
physiology, text)
*   Analysis of psychological user states, such as attention and affect
*   Analysis of conversational cues, such as grounding and turn taking
*   Intelligent sensing platforms
*   Synchronization and fusion of Multimodal Input
*   Generation and presentation of system output
*   Smart visualization tools
*   Intelligent authoring systems
*   Context-aware systems for the generation and presentation of
situation-specific output (e.g., on mobile phones, portable tablet
devices, wall-size displays, multi-touch screens, meeting
accessibility criteria)
*   Synthesis of multimodal behavior for virtual characters and social robots
*   Help intelligent assistants for complex tasks
*   Support for collaboration in multiuser environments
*   Intelligent information and knowledge management
*   Novel trends, innovative solutions and applications
*   Novel sensing technologies for games and entertainment
*   Automotive user interfaces
*   Novel interaction methods for touch phones and multi touch surfaces

Review Criteria

The proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by the workshop chairs
and the IUI-2012 organizing committee. The following criteria will
guide the review: relevance to IUI, interest for the audience,
quality, and organization.

Organizer Responsibilities

The organizers of accepted workshops are expected to:

*   Define, produce, and distribute the call for papers (following
deadlines and details provided by the workshop chairs).
*   Solicit and review submissions, decide on the workshop program,
and coordinate the number of submissions and accepted papers with the
workshop chairs.
*   Assure workshop participants are informed about their registration
to IUI and the workshop.
*   Set up and maintain the workshop website, which contains
information about the workshop, the workshop materials (papers,
presentations), and the outcomes summary.
*   Produce a single PDF with the workshop material to allow printing
and distribution of the proceedings.
*   Attend and coordinate the workshop. At least one organizer of the
workshop must register at early registration date.
