ACM IUI 2021 CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
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.

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.
