**** 21st February 2020 @ 23:59 GMT+1 - submission deadline ****

CUI 2020 is looking for original contributions from a broad range of 
disciplines including: human-computer interaction, computer science, 
engineering, speech technology, linguistics, psychology, cognitive 
sciences and sociology. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- speech interfaces
- speech interface theory development
- conversational interaction through technology
- text-based conversational interfaces
- chatbots
- speech synthesis
- speech recognition
- dialogue management
- conversational interface design insights
- conversational search
- methods for conversational user interface development and evaluation
- multimodal interaction involving speech, text or other language based 

**** Submission format and instructions **** <>
6-8 page anonymised papers (excluding references). Each paper will be 
peer reviewed by 3 expert reviewers. Submissions must be made using the 
EasyChair website: 
<>. Accepted full papers 
will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and authors will be given an 
oral presentation slot at the conference.

**** About CUI 2020 ****

There has been an increasing interest in language based interactions 
with technology. Driven by the commercial success of intelligent 
personal assistant devices such as Alexa and Google Home, to the growth 
of the use of chatbots in commercial settings, the number of natural 
language and conversation based interactions is growing. Based on a 
successful inaugural ACM In-Cooperation conference in 2019, CUI 2020 
aims to further develop a collaborative community around human-computer 
interaction issues in speech and language technology, with specific 
interest in theory based and applied scientific issues in the field of 
speech and text based conversational user interfaces. CUI 2020 looks to 
bring together relevant communities (e.g. ISCA, ACM SIGCHI, CogSci) to 
publish, disseminate and showcase high quality cutting edge research 
related to the field, promote insight and debate in this interesting and 
important discipline within language interfaces.
