The ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST) is the premier forum for innovations in human-computer interfaces bringing together people from diverse areas including graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW.
The 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.
Each applicant should provide a short written paper (no more than four pages (including references) in the official SIGCHI conference publication format as described in the author's guide <http://uist.acm.org/uist2019/author-guide/>. Note that doctoral symposium submission, unlike paper submission, is not anonymous; doctoral symposium submissions should be single-authored, where the student applying is the sole author. This paper should describe ongoing work and might summarize your full dissertation work, or highlight a particular part in depth.
The Doctoral Symposium committee will select approximately eight students to participate. Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the symposium.
Each student will be expected to give a short presentation of their work, which will be followed by extensive discussion with the panel and the other student participants. The symposium will be held at the UIST conference venue from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 20th, 2019 (and will begin with a welcome dinner the evening of Saturday, October 19th, at 6:30 pm). In addition, each student is encouraged to present a poster describing his or her work to the full conference; posters will be on display for two days during the conference.
Doctoral Symposium abstracts will be published together with poster and demonstration abstracts and made available digitally to conference attendees (though they are considered a “non-archival” publication). Posters may also be published at the participant's discretion.
Accepted students will receive complimentary registration to the UIST 2019 conference, and a complimentary hotel room at the conference venue (on a shared basis; same-gendered members of the symposium will be paired together for room sharing). Travel subsidies will also be available to participants (the exact value of the travel subsidies has not yet been determined).
Doctoral Symposium papers should be submitted electronically to the new Precision Conference System. <http://new.precisionconference.com/~sigchi>
The faculty panelists will be:
Fanny Chevalier <http://fannychevalier.net/>, University of Toronto (co-chair)
Elena Glassman <http://eglassman.github.io/>, Harvard (co-chair)
Scott Klemmer <https://d.ucsd.edu/srk/>, UC San Diego

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 New Orleans!
