2006 International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2006)

Sydney, Australia
January 29, 2006 to February 1, 2006 (Workshops: January 29, 2006)

IUI 2006 is the annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community
and serves as the principal international forum for reporting
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces.
The purpose of a workshop is to provide an informal forum where
practitioners and researchers can discuss their current work and
issues of common interest.  The formats of the workshops will be
determined by their organizers, who are encouraged to foster
discussion and exchange of ideas by including mechanisms other than
traditional paper presentations.

Possible foci of workshops may include:
- principles/emerging areas/concerns/applications of intelligent
  interfaces and their applications in the field of human-computer
  interaction and artificial intelligence
- methodologies, applications, and evaluation
- tools, design environments, and related infrastructure that assist
  designers and developers in the user interface development life cycle

Workshops are intended to last a half day or a full day. They will be
held on Sunday, 29 January 2006, just before the technical sessions.

Submission Format

Each proposal should contain the following information:

1. A cover page including:
   - Workshop title
   - Name, affiliation, postal address, and e-mail address for each
   - Identification of the primary contact person(s)

2. Background and Motivation: What is the overall topic of the
   workshop?  Why is this topic of particular interest at this time?
   If the workshop has been organized in the past at an IUI or other
   conference, please give details (audience, URL) and describe why it
   should be held again and how improvements will be made.

3. Objectives: What are the objectives that the workshop aims to
   achieve?  Objectives may include (a) targeting a predefined set of
   focus questions, (b) presenting alternate views on a particular
   issue that is of concern to the IUI community and attempting to
   resolve the issue, (c) identifying priorities for new directions of
   research, and/or (d) initiating the appropriate collaborations.

4. Format: Give a description of the proposed workshop format,
   including the planned activities (such as position statements,
   invited talks, panels, demos, and general discussion), as well as
   how these activities address the workshop objectives.  Preference
   will be given to proposals for activities designed to fuel
   discussion and interaction among participants; workshops consisting
   solely of paper presentations are discouraged.  Provide a
   preliminary schedule with estimated times. Design your schedule for
   a length of 3 hours (half-day workshop) or 6 hours (full-day
   workshop) with a lunch break and one or two coffee breaks,

5. Potential Participants: Indicate how you plan to select
   participants and contributions to the workshop. State your estimate
   of the number of participants.  If possible, give a list of
   tentatively confirmed participants.

6. Workshop attraction: Indicate how you plan to attract submissions
   and/or participants.  If you have a plan to edit a book or a
   journal special issue as a result of your workshop, please indicate

7. Organizers: Give short descriptions of each of the organizers'
   qualifications related to the workshop topics. Indicate if you are
   planning to have a program committee to help with the
   organization/review process, and give names and contact information
   of PC members, if available.
