==About CUI 2019==

CUI 2019 is the 1st annual International Conference on Conversational 
User Interfaces. It aims to be the premier interdisciplinary conference 
for researchers and practitioners across the world to discuss the latest 
in conversational interface technology. This inaugural event will take 
place in Dublin, Ireland on 22nd-23rd August 2019 and will be hosted in 
the heart of the city centre. The conference holds ACM SIGCHI In 
Co-Operation status.

There has been an increasing interest in language based interactions 
with technology. Through 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. Although there is growth 
in this area, with much technical effort being applied and promoted in 
these areas (e.g. Interspeech, SIGDIAL), there is comparatively little 
promotion of and exploration of important human-computer interaction and 
design based issues. This event, growing from successful workshops at 
both ACM CHI and ACM Mobile HCI, looks to begin to develop an 
independent yet collaborative community with specific interest in theory 
based and applied scientific issues in the field of speech and text based 
conversational user interfaces. The event looks to bring together the 
ISCA and ACM SIGCHI communities to publish and promote insight and 
debate in this interesting and important discipline within language 

==Conference Structure==
CUI is a 2 day, single track conference, showcasing leading work in the area of language based interfaces.
