In conjunction with the 23rd International Conference on Intelligent User
Interfaces (IUI 2018)
Tokyo, Japan
March 7-11, 2018

IUI 2018 is pleased to invite proposals for workshops to be held in
conjunction with the conference. The goal of the workshops is to provide a
venue for presenting research on focused topics of interest and an informal
forum to discuss research questions and challenges. Workshops will be held
on the last day of the conference. We invite submissions of full-day (6
hours) and half-day (3 hours) workshop proposals on any of the conference
topics (or related).

We encourage proposals for a wide range of workshops, including but not
limited to:
- "Mini-conferences" on specialized topics; such workshops may have their
own paper submission and review processes.
- "Late breaking work" meetings; such workshops usually have a lighter
review process (e.g. based on abstracts only).
- "Hands-on" workshops around a specific problem or topic that may wish to
ask participants to submit a position statement.
- "Project centric" workshops that may be closely related to the scope of
an existing large scale (e.g. NSF, EU, etc. funded) project.
- "Mini-competitions", challenges, or hackathons around selected topics
with individual or team participation.

=============== PROPOSAL FORMAT ===============
Note: One of the keys to a successful workshop submission is to CONTACT THE
CHAIRS WITH YOUR IDEAS ([log in to unmask]), and work together to
prepare an exciting proposal!

Workshop proposals should be maximum 2 pages long and follow the formatting
instructions from SIGCHI Paper Format, Please submit your proposal
by e-mail to the workshop chairs at [log in to unmask]

The proposals should be organized as follows:

- Name and title: A one-word workshop acronym and a full title.
- Description of workshop topic and goal: This description should discuss
the relevance of the suggested topic to IUI and its interest for the IUI
2018 audience. Include a brief discussion of why and for which audience the
workshop is of particular interest.
- Organizers: Names, affiliations, emails, and web pages of the workshop
organizers. This can be a single person or a group of people. Strong
proposals normally include organizers who bring differing perspectives on
the topic and are actively connected to the communities of potential
participants. Please indicate the primary contact person and the organizers
who plan to attend the workshop.
- Previous history: List of previous workshops that were held on the topic
including the conferences that hosted past workshops and the number of
participants. Also please provide the list of other workshops organized by
workshop organizers in the past.
- Workshop program committee: Names and affiliation of the members of the
(tentative) workshop program committee that will evaluate the workshop

you plan to invite participants for the workshop. We recommend the proposal
to include the names of at least 10 people who have expressed interest to
participate in, or contribute a paper to, the workshop.

mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels,
demonstrations, and general discussion.

Additional guidelines:

- Workshop proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by the workshop chairs.

attend IUI and take part in their workshop. This can make the workshops
more appealing for the participants and strengthen the discussion part.
- Workshop summary: An extended abstract with a summary of the workshop
goals and an overview of the workshop topics will be included in the ACM
Digital Library for IUI 2018.
- Workshop proceedings: At the convenience of the workshop organizers, we
will arrange a joint volume of online proceedings for the workshop papers.
Workshops should request the authors to submit papers in the ACM SIGCHI
Paper Format.
- Cancellation: Workshops with few submissions by December 17, 2017 may be
cancelled, shortened, merged with other workshops, or otherwise
restructured. This will be done in consultation between the IUI 2018
workshop chairs and the workshop organizers.

Additionally, we strongly encourage to have workshop organizers from
different institutions and research communities, bringing different
perspectives to the workshop topic. We welcome workshops with a creative
structure that attracts various types of contributions and ensures rich

The organizers of accepted workshops are responsible for producing a call
for participation and publicizing it, such as distributing the call to
relevant newsgroups and electronic mailing lists, and especially to
potential audiences from outside the IUI conference community. Workshop
organizers will maintain their own website with updated information about
the workshop and the IUI 2018 web site will refer to the workshop site. The
workshop organizers will coordinate the paper solicitation, collection, and
review process, and coordinate the production of the joint online
proceedings with IUI 2018 workshop chairs.
