The ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST) is the premier forum for innovations in human-computer interfaces. Sponsored by ACM special interest groups on computer-human interaction (SIGCHI) and computer graphics (SIGGRAPH), UIST brings together people from diverse areas including graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW. The intimate size and intensive program make UIST an ideal opportunity to exchange research results and ideas. Join us in Tokyo!

- Posters (Deadline: July 7, 2016 12:00 PDT)
Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present their work to conference attendees during special poster sessions. Posters are an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than papers. The posters track welcomes innovative research, as well as innovative ways of doing research.

- Demonstrations (Deadline: July 7, 2016 12:00 PDT)
Demonstrations show early implementations of novel and compelling interaction concepts, techniques, devices and 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.

- Doctoral Symposium (Deadline: July 7, 2016 12:00 PDT)
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. UIST provides
free registration and travel expense support to participants.

- Student Volunteers (Deadline: July 25, 2016 17:00 PDT)
Student volunteers will be required to help set up and perform needed work during the conference. Duties include: bag stuffing, registration desk, AV assistance, poster and demo setup, badge checking, break monitoring, etc. Volunteers will also need to be available during the conference if tasks come up. SVs usually get to attend most of the sessions, even when working. UIST provides free registration.

- Student Innovation Contest (August 1, 2016, 12:00 PDT)
In Student Innovation Contest, student teams create intriguing novel interfaces using exciting hardware kits that we provide, this year it is: Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS). It’s your opportunity to shine and impress the world with your innovations! Contestants will demo their creations during the demo reception at the conference in Tokyo Japan; and the winners will be announced at the UIST banquet.
