ACM IUI 2021 CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS (deadline extended)

In conjunction with the 26th International Conference on Intelligent User  
Interfaces (IUI 2021)
College Station, TX, USA
April 13 - 17, 2021

IUI 2021 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 first 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). This year we are particularly interested  
in workshops that have an interactive aspect.

Preference will be given to workshops with interactive and hands-on  
sessions where participants can team up or work together towards the  
common goal of the workshop. 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.
- "Mini-competitions", challenges, or hackathons around selected topics  
with individual or team participation.


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 standard  
sigconf format, using one of the Interim ACM templates available at

Please submit your proposal via the PCS 2.0 submission system  

The proposals should be organized as follows:
- Name and title: A one-word workshop acronym and a full title.

the relevance of the suggested topic to the IUI audience. Include a brief  
discussion of why and for which audience the workshop is of particular  
- 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  
- Participants: A statement saying how many participants you expect and  
how 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.
- Workshop format: A brief description of the workshop format regarding  
the mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels,  
demonstrations, and general discussion.

- Proposal format: Workshop proposals should be maximum 2 pages long and  
follow the formatting instructions from (sigconf):

Additional guidelines:

- Workshop proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by the workshop chairs.
- Organizers: We strongly encourage all of the workshop organizers to  
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 2021.
- 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 January 3 2021 may be  
cancelled, shortened, merged with other workshops, or otherwise  
restructured. This will be done in consultation between the IUI 2021  
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 workshops and the IUI 2021 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 2021 workshop chairs.
