IUI 2005

January 9-12, 2005
Catamaran Resort Hotel, San Diego, California, U.S.A.

First, here's a quick reminder of the submission deadline
for long and short papers for the SIGCHI-sponsored
conference IUI 2005:

MONDAY, 20 SEPTEMBER 2004, 11:59 pm PDT (San Diego time)

Almost all of the major conference events have by now been
firmly scheduled; see the list below. These events already
ensure that IUI 2005 will be "the place to be" in 2005 for
those interested in intelligent user interfaces.

You can become an important part of this program by
submitting a high-quality long paper. Each long paper will
be presented in the same type of plenary session as the
invited talks and the panel discussion. One or two long
papers will receive the Outstanding Paper Award.

For work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper,
please consider a short paper submission.

For more information, see the conference web site
( and/or the brief Call for Papers at the
end of this message.

            Hoping to hear from you by 20 September!

            John Riedl and Anthony Jameson
            IUI 2005 program cochairs

            Eric Schwarzkopf

[From the Call for Papers first circulated in June 2004:]


The series of annual conferences on Intelligent User
Interfaces is the principal international forum for the
presentation and discussion of outstanding research and
applications involving intelligent user interfaces. Its
proceedings, which are available both as hard copy and via
the ACM Digital Library, are widely read and cited.

The central track of the technical program comprises plenary
presentations of full-length papers, which are selected by
the program committee after in-depth analysis and
discussion. A complementary set of short paper presentations
and demos stimulates discussion on work in progress.

The quality of the reviewing process is being further
enhanced this year with the introduction of "meta-reviewers"
(see below).

The conference experience also includes a variety of other
activities: workshops, tutorials, invited talks by leading
figures, and an occasional panel.  Just as important are the
lively informal discussions that are encouraged by the fact
that most of the conference events are attended by all of
the participants.


Topics of interest for IUI 2005 include all aspects of
intelligent user interfaces. Successful submissions will
include aspects of both intelligence and interface. The
following are sample topics:

 - Interpretation of user input
      Processing of multimodal input
      Natural language and speech processing
      Affective interfaces
 - Generation of system output
      Intelligent visualization tools
      Intelligent generation of multimedia presentations
 - Ubiquitous computing
      Intelligent interfaces for ubiquitous computing
      Smart environments
 - Help
      Intelligent assistants for complex tasks
      Support for collaboration in multiuser environments
      Intelligent information and knowledge management
 - Categories of intelligence
      User-adaptivity in interactive systems
      Personalization and recommender systems
      Modeling and prediction of user behavior
      Planning and plan recognition
 - IUI design
      Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design
        and generation
      Proactive and agent-based paradigms for user
      Example- and demonstration-based interfaces
 - User studies
      User studies concerning intelligent interfaces
      Evaluations of implemented intelligent user interfaces

The programs of previous IUI conferences are available via
the conference web site (see

IUI 2005 encourages submissions from those who have done
relevant work but who have not previously submitted to an
IUI conference. In case of doubt about the relevance of your
work, do not hesitate to ask the relevant chair(s) for
advice.  (Addresses are given below.)


There are two categories of paper submission:

   LONG PAPER submissions should report on substantial
   contributions of lasting value.  Each accepted long paper
   will be presented in a plenary session of the main
   conference program. An accompanying demonstration can be
   presented in a poster/demo session.  The maximum length
   is 8 pages in the two-column ACM conference format.

   SHORT PAPER submissions typically discuss exciting new
   work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper. Each
   accepted short paper will be presented in a poster/demo
   session. The presentation may include a system
   demonstration. The maximum length is 3 pages.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members
of the program committee. Each long paper submission will
also be read by a "meta-reviewer": a senior program
committee member who will produce a coherent summary of the

Accepted papers from both categories will be included in the
conference proceedings, to be published in hard copy by the
ACM Press and electronically in the ACM Digital Library
(  Further information,
including detailed instructions about the format and the
submission procedure, is available on the conference web

An Outstanding Paper Award will be presented to the one or
two strongest papers submitted to the long papers track.
These papers will be selected by the program committee on
the basis of the significance of the contribution, the
relevance to the IUI conference, and the quality of the
writing.  The Outstanding Paper(s) will be publicized before
and after the conference, and the authors will receive a
modest monetary award and a framed award certificate in
recognition of their contribution to the field.

Time line for long and short papers:

  Monday, 20 September 2004: Submission of manuscripts for
  Monday, 1 November 2004: Notification about acceptance or
  Monday, 22 November 2004: Submission of camera-ready copy
    for accepted papers


IUI 2005 will be held at the Catamaran Resort Hotel in San
Diego, California, U.S.A. (
The Catamaran is located directly on the waterfront and near
Mission Bay, the world's largest aquatic park.
