UIST 2017 - CALL FOR PAPERS
30th ACM User Interface Software and Technology Symposium
October 22-25, 2017
Quebec City, Canada
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
Papers are the main medium for conveying new research results at UIST.
Submissions are sought that describe original, unpublished work on
user interface interaction techniques, systems, tools, services,
devices or applications. Please consult the UIST 2017 Author's Guide
(https://uist.acm.org/uist2017/author-guide) for information on
submission format and policies for previous and simultaneous
Submission deadline: April 4th, 2017 22:00 UTC
**Paper Format and Length**
All paper submissions must be made in the 2016 version of the SIGCHI
papers format (note that this format utilizes the newer "Firstname M.
Lastname" convention). Papers can be of any page length, though should
be commensurate with the size of the contribution. A new idea
presented in a compact format is more likely to be accepted than the
same idea in a long format. Exceptionally long papers (over 10 pages)
need to include very strong contributions to warrant acceptance.
Shorter, focused papers (called "notes" in years prior to 2011) are
still an appropriate submission length for UIST and encouraged.
References do not count towards the page length.
When you submit your work, you will be asked to agree to the terms and
conditions of the SIGCHI Submitter Agreement
(https://chi2017.acm.org/wp/sigchi-submitter-agreement/). In addition,
the author list must be complete by the submission deadline. Late
author changes require approval from Program Chairs and may be
declined or require paper withdrawal because of reviewing conflicts.
The submission of a supplementary Video Figure is strongly encouraged,
especially in cases of interactive techniques or systems, where videos
play an important role in convincing reviewers that the contribution
works as described. Video Figures should be no more than six minutes
long and the total size of a submission (including the paper) is
limited to 100 MB. See the video guide
(https://uist.acm.org/uist2017/video-guide) for details. UIST will not
be accepting 30-second Video Previews this year.
**Reviewing and Rebuttal Process**
Rigorous reviewing is a hallmark of UIST. Each paper will be reviewed
by 3 external reviewers (experts in the area who are not on the
Program Committee). Additionally, every paper will receive a review
from a member of the Program Committee. On May 22, 2017, authors will
be notified of their initial reviews. If reviews fall below a rebuttal
threshold, the paper will be rejected at this stage; otherwise, the
authors will have the opportunity to submit a rebuttal. One additional
review from the Program Committee will be entered post-rebuttal for
papers requiring additional discussion. On June 26, 2017, authors will
be notified if their papers have been conditionally accepted or
All acceptances will be conditional pending changes that the Program
Committee may suggest or require for the final camera-ready paper.
This means that a paper will not be accepted to UIST until authors
revise and submit the final camera-ready paper for approval by the
Program Committee. The length of the camera-ready paper must be less
than or equal to the length of the original submission unless there is
a strong justification for increasing the paper length, which would
require approval by the authors’ primary reviewer.
