            IUI 2014

            19th International Conference
            on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI'2014)

            Haifa, Israel February 24-27, 2014




IUI 2014 is the 19th annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community and
serves as the principal international forum for reporting outstanding research
and development on intelligent user interfaces.

IUI is where the community of people interested in Human-Computer Interaction
(HCI) meets the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. We are very interested
in contributions that bridge these two fields and also related fields, such as
psychology, cognitive science, computer graphics, the arts, etc. IUI researchers
are interested in improving the symbiosis between humans and computers, so that
interface design and interactive experiences yield higher performance outcomes.
This may involve designing interfaces that incorporate intelligent automated
capabilities, if the net impact is a human-computer interaction that improves
performance or usability in critical ways. It may also involve designing an
interface that effectively leverages human skills and capabilities, so that
human performance with an application excels. In other cases, such as
educational interface design, it may involve exercising judgment in when not to
automate a function so that humans are encouraged to exert themselves as they
acquire new skills or domain knowledge.

We call for original submissions that describe novel technologies and
applications to intelligent user interfaces.

IUI topics of interest including, but not limited to:

* User input
    - Processing of multi-modal input
    - Natural language and speech processing
    - Gestures, eye gaze, face recognition

* Generation of system output
    - Intelligent visualization tools
    - Intelligent generation of user-consumable content

* Ubiquitous computing
    - Intelligent interfaces for ubiquitous computing
    - Smart environments and tangible computing

* Help and Persuasive Technologies
    - Intelligent assistants for complex tasks
    - Support for collaboration in multiuser environments
    - Intelligent information and knowledge management
    - Persuasive technologies in IUI

* Personalization
    - User-adaptivity in interactive systems
    - Recommender systems
    - Modeling and prediction of user behavior

* AI Techniques in IUI
    - Planning and plan recognition
    - Reasoning in interfaces
    - Knowledge-based systems

* Social Computing
    - Affective, social and aesthetic interfaces
    - Social networks and collaboration

* IUI Design
    - Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design and generation
    - Proactive and agent-based paradigms for user interaction
    - Example-and demonstration-based interfaces

* User studies
    - User studies concerning intelligent interfaces
    - Evaluations of implemented intelligent user interfaces

* Semantic Web
    - Query interfaces and novel interfaces for Linked Data
    - Consuming Linked Data
    - Interfaces for creating and using large ontologies


* Full and Short Papers

We invite original paper submissions that describe novel user interfaces,
applications, interactive and intelligent technologies, empirical studies, or
design techniques. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
IUI 2014 especially encourages submissions on innovative and visionary new
concepts or directions for interface design. We do not require evaluations with
users, but we do expect papers to include an appropriate evaluation for their
stated contribution. Full papers should make substantial, novel and relevant
contributions to the field. Short papers can either contain smaller
contributions, novel ground-breaking ideas, or work in progress. Accepted full
papers will be invited for oral presentation and short paper either as oral or
poster presentation.

Abstracts Due: October 4, 2013
Full and Short Papers Due: October 9, 2013

* Demonstrations

The demonstrations track complements the overall program of the conference.
Demonstrations show implementations of novel, interesting, and important
intelligent user interface concepts or systems. We invite submissions relevant
to intelligent user interfaces and which address, but are not limited to, the
topics of the conference. All submissions are intended to convey a scientific
result or work in progress and should not be advertisements for commercial
software packages.

Submissions Due: December 12, 2013

* Industrial Track

The industrial track represents an opportunity for the companies in the field to
present their late work (as presentations, posters or interactive demos) and
receive valuable feedback from the research community. It also provides an
opportunity for recruitment and for networking. The industry track will not be
peer-reviewed but the relevance of proposals for the field will be judged by
a jury. Please contact industry track chairs at [log in to unmask]

Submissions Due: November 15, 2013

* Student Consortium

The IUI 2014 Student Consortium provides an opportunity for Masters and Doctoral
students to present and receive feedback about their research in an
interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of mentors, selected
from senior people in the field. We invite students who feel they would benefit
from this kind of feedback on their research to apply for this unique
opportunity to share their work with students in a similar situation as well as
senior researchers in the field. The strongest candidates will be those who have
a clear topic and research approach, and have made some progress, but who are
not so far along their research that they can no longer make changes.

Submissions Due: November 1, 2013

* Workshops

Workshops will be held on the first day of the conference. We invite submissions
of full-day (6 hours) and half-day (3 hours) workshop proposals on any of the
conference topics.
