I am pleased to announce that the deadline for UIST'97 Demo submissions
has been extended until Friday May 2nd.  UIST is the premier forum for
innovations in developing human-computer interfaces - it is the ideal
forum for demonstrating your HCI systems, development environments,
tools, programming techniques, and related technologies.

Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality demos about original
research to enhance user-interface functionality or to improve the
user-interface development process. Appropriate topics include but are
not limited to:
*       Techniques for advanced interaction functionality, such as
multimedia, virtual worlds, innovative displays, unconventional input
devices, and highly interactive user interfaces.
*       Innovative software architectures for developing user interfaces
including those associated with user-interface management systems,
window systems, toolkits, and knowledge-based user interfaces.
*       Tools and techniques for designing and constructing user
interfaces, including automated tools and object-oriented techniques.
*       User interfaces with special operating system requirements, such
as real-time, multi-user, multi-input, multi-threaded, and distributed
*       User interfaces for difficult or challenging applications, such
as large, complex information sets.
*       User interfaces for people with special needs.
*       The internationalization of the user interface.

        I have appended the relevant portions of the CFP, and look
forward to your submission!

*       UIST'97
*       Call For Participation
*       Tenth Annual Symposium on
*       User Interface Software and Technology
*       URL:
*       October 14-17, 1997
*       Banff Park Lodge, Banff, Alberta, Canada
*       Sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and SIGCHI
*       and in cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT

        UIST '97 is the premier forum for innovations in developing
human-computer interfaces. The symposium brings together user-interface
researchers and practitioners with an interest in techniques, tools, and
technology for constructing high-quality, innovative user interfaces.
The intimate size, single track, and comfortable surroundings make this
symposium an ideal opportunity to exchange research results and
implementation experiences. Papers, TechNotes, Panels, and Demos are
sought on a wide range of user-interface topics. Come help us celebrate
our tenth anniversary!
        UIST '97 will host peer-reviewed demonstrations showing early
implementations of novel interface concepts and HCI systems. The demos
will be given in parallel in an informal setting. Demos should be brief
so that they can be shown repeatedly during the demonstration session.
        Demo submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their
innovation, relevance, scientific contribution, and potential logistic
constraints. Commercial products are eligible, but sales and marketing
activities are not appropriate. The submission should consist of a cover
letter indicating the primary author's name, affiliation, address, phone
number, and e-mail address, and three copies of the following:
*       A two-page summary in ACM conference format of research
contributions illustrated in the demo. This summary will be published in
the proceedings.
*       A detailed description of hardware and software requirements.
Please state whether you can supply these yourself. UIST will attempt to
provide necessary equipment, but those submitting demos may be requested
to provide their own equipment.
*       An informal videotape of the demo (in NTSC VHS format), or a
demo storyboard with at least six screen dumps (not more than six pages,
including pictures). Preference will be given to submissions that
include a videotape.

Demo submissions must be received by David Kosbie, Demos Chair, no later
than Friday May 2, 1997. If you are interested in electronic
submissions, please contact the Demos Chair. Authors will be notified of
acceptance by June 13, 1997.
