                                   AVI 2004
                          Advanced Visual Interfaces
                       International Working Conference

              Grand Hotel Costa Brada - Gallipoli (Lecce), Italy
                                May 25-28, 2004
                          http://www.di.uniba.it/avi2004

In cooperation with: ACM-SIGCHI, ACM-SIGMM, SIGCHI Italy
Under the patronage of the University of Bari, Italy

                                CALL FOR PAPERS
The 7th International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI
2004) will be held in Gallipoli (Lecce), Italy, May 25-28, 2004. The Conference
traditionally brings together experts in different areas of computer science
who have a common interest in the conception, design and implementation of
visual interfaces. Because of the new class of computers, such as digital
assistants, palmtops and mobile phones, AVI opens to perceptual interfaces, not
limited to the use of visual techniques, which appear the appropriate solution
to the design of dedicated interfaces, optimised for a given hardware and/or
specific applications. Both formal methods and concrete applications well fit
in the conference, whose program also includes invited talks, given by leaders
in the field.

                               PAPER SUBMISSION
We strongly encourage submissions that address research and development on the
above and other related topics, or that propose new approaches suitable for
fulfilling the demands that characterize advanced interfaces of the next
generation. Three kinds of contribution are solicited: RESEARCH papers, up to
8000 words (approximately 20 double-spaced pages including figures), SHORT
papers describing promising work in progress, up to 4000 words (approximately
10 double-spaced pages including figures), and SYSTEM papers up to 4000 words.
System papers will be accompanied by a demonstration of the software prototype
and should include a detailed project/system description specifying hw/sw
requirements (demonstrators may either use personal laptops, or provide a full
working version of accepted prototypes - available for installation - by April
16, 2004). Papers are submitted electronically. Detailed information on
electronic submission will be provided at the AVI 2004 web site. Authors
intending to submit a paper MUST first send an electronic abstract of no more
than 250 words by filling in the abstract submission form that provided at the
AVI 2004 web site (abstracts are intended for classification purposes only and
must be followed by the paper).

               PANEL, TUTORIAL, AND WORKSHOP PROPOSAL SUBMISSION
Panels - The aim of panels is to stimulate the discussion, so they should
address exciting, hot, and controversial topics rather than being short paper
sessions. The panel proposal should include a 1000 word abstract, which
illustrates the panel topic, stating compelling issues to be debated, and a
list of all panel members.

Tutorials - Tutorials provide conference participants with the opportunity to
gain new insights in the area of advanced visual interfaces. The up to two page
tutorial proposal should clearly state the content, organization, and target
audience of the tutorial. A/V requirements and a biosketch of the presenter(s)
should also be provided.

Workshops - The objective of the pre-AVI workshops is to focus on special
topics of major importance. The up to 1000 word
proposal should state the objective and significance of the workshop, potential
participants, format and duration of the workshop.

                                DEMO SUBMISSION
The Exhibit Program will primarily consist of demonstrations of software
prototypes. The demo proposal should include a detailed project/system
description of up to 3000 words (specifying hw/sw requirements). A full working
version of accepted prototypes must be available for installation by April 16,
2004.

VENUE: Gallipoli is a well-known ancient town in Southern Italy and a beach
resort on the Ionian coast of Salento. Its name derives from the Greek "kalle
polis" which means "beautiful town". It is composed of two different areas: the
modern one situated on a promontory, and the other one, which is a colourful
medieval village, built on a little island extending into the Ionian Sea, where
there are several churches and a little museum in the maze of narrow streets.
The Angioin castle dominates the island. The conference will be held at the
Grand Hotel Costa Brada, located along the sandy shores of Gallipoli. The
airport closest to Gallipoli is Brindisi airport. Shuttles will be provided by
the conference organization from Brindisi airport and from Lecce train station.
