Seventeenth Annual ACM Symposium on
User Interface Software and Technology

October 24-27, 2004
La Fonda on the Plaza
Santa Fe, NM

Sponsored by ACM SIGCHI and SIGGRAPH

Don't miss the October 17 advance registration deadline for
UIST 2004, the premier forum for innovations in the software and
technology of human-computer interfaces!

Featured speakers:

        Keynote: Bridging the Gap from Theory to Practice: The
        Path toward Innovation in Human-Computer Interaction.
        Mary Czerwinski (Microsoft Research)

        Invited Survey: Physical User Interfaces---What They Are and
        How to Build Them. Saul Greenberg (Univ. of Calgary)

        Invited Survey: Olfactory Display.
        Joseph 'Jofish' Kaye (Cornell Univ.)

Sponsored by ACM's special interest groups on
computer-human interaction (SIGCHI) and computer graphics (SIGGRAPH),
UIST brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse areas
that include graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous
computing, very large & very small displays, pen-based & gestural
user interfaces, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input &
output devices, and CSCW. The intimate size, the single track, and
comfortable surroundings make this symposium an ideal opportunity to
exchange research results and implementation experiences.

The UIST 2004 program features 24 full-length papers, 12 shorter
TechNotes, 14 posters, and 14 demos Monday-Wednesday, October 25-27,
preceded by an invitation-only doctoral symposium and a welcome
reception on Sunday October 24.
