The 9th International Working Conference on Advanced Visual
Interfaces (AVI’08) will be held in Naples,
Italy, May 28-30, 2008. Started in 1992 in Rome, and held every two
years in different Italian towns, the
Conference traditionally brings together experts in different areas
of computer science who have a
common interest in the conception, design and implementation of
visual and, more generally, perceptual
interfaces. Through the years, the Conference has witnessed the
growing interest within the community
for mobile devices such as smartphones, palmtops and PDAs, in the
framework of both traditional and
emerging environments, such as ubiquitous and pervasive computer
applications. Both formal methods
and concrete applications well fit into the framework of the
conference, whose program also includes
invited talks, given by leaders in the field.

AVI 2008 has received a total of 170 submissions in different
categories. 32 full papers have been selected for presentation out of
117 research contributions, discussing the major achievements in the
area of visual and perceptual interfaces. 42 short papers/posters and
12 system papers/demos have also been selected, offering a wide
spectrum of on-going developments and practical experiences.

The Proceedings are published by ACM Press.

The Scientific Programme is completed by two tutorials:

"Intelligent Visual Interfaces: An Introduction" led by Mark Maybury,
"Haptics Interaction: Theory, Applications and Challenges" led by
Andrea F. Abate

and two workshops:

"PPD 08: Workshop on designing multi-touch interaction techniques for coupled
public and private displays", chaired by S. Izadi, A. Quigley, S. Subramanian

"Multimodal interaction through haptic feedback (MITH)", chaired by
M. De Marsico and G. Vitiello
