Reminder: The UIST 2006 papers submission deadline is April 4th, less
than a month away!  We are eagerly looking forward to receiving the best
work that the HCI community has to offer. 



Ken Hinckley

UIST 2006 Papers Chair




UIST 2006 <> 

October 15-18, 2006

Montreux, Switzerland


Call for participation

UIST <> , the Association for
Computing Machinery's Symposium on User Interface Software and
Technology, is the premiere forum for original research contributions to
user interface technology and interaction techniques. 

Full Papers and Technotes

(Deadline: Tuesday, April 4, 2006 5:00pm Pacific Time)

UIST seeks research results that describe original, unpublished work on
user interface devices, techniques, applications, or metaphors. Full
Papers (up to 10 pages) are the primary medium for conveying new
research results at UIST. Technique notes ("Technotes") offer a concise
format (up to 4 pages) for small but clever new techniques.

Appropriate topics for UIST Full Papers and Technotes include but are
not limited to: 

*	Novel enabling technologies such as innovative input devices,
displays that afford new user experiences, new interaction techniques,
or new interaction media that extend the boundaries of traditional
interaction tasks and techniques, such as perceptual user interfaces,
augmented reality, ubiquitous computing, and computer supported
collaborative work (CSCW); 
*	Innovative user interfaces for difficult interaction contexts or
challenging applications, such as the management of large, complex
information sets, multi-user interaction, or techniques that span
devices distributed in time and space; 
*	Novel application of techniques and methods from other
disciplines, such as machine learning, computer vision, computer
graphics, speech processing, networking, and human perception and
cognition, that contribute to user interaction techniques and
*	Innovative software architectures, toolkits, and development
environments that support the development and use of the above
technologies in user interfaces. 

Full Papers convey important new results that advance human-computer
interaction. UIST emphasizes papers with significant contribution of new
ideas, techniques, and approaches. User studies or experimental
comparison of techniques are not necessarily required for a UIST paper,
but in general having at least an informal evaluation or other
validation increases the likelihood that your paper will be accepted. 

UIST Technotes provide a forum for concise descriptions, typically
including figures and accompanying video, of innovative new interaction
techniques, devices, and applications that do not require a Full Paper
to explain. Technotes must include sufficient detail to replicate a
technique and to convince the reader that it offers an important
contribution. The review criteria and review process for Technotes is
exactly the same as Full Papers, and just like Full Papers, Technotes
become archival publications upon acceptance. Technotes are NOT for
late-breaking results or incomplete work-in-progress. Technotes also
typically do not include exhaustive implementation details, user
studies, or as many references as a Full Paper. 

Submission and Review Process for Full Papers and Technotes

Authors must submit electronic versions of all Full Papers and Technotes
<> . See general information
lInfo>  and the author guide
<> for details. Note
your submission must adhere to the UIST format
<> . We
encourage submission of supplementary videos that are at most 5 minutes
long (3 minutes for Technotes); see the video guide
<>  for detailed

Rigorous reviewing is a UIST hallmark. Each Full Paper or Technote
submission to UIST will be assigned to a primary reviewer from the UIST
program committee (a panel of user interaction experts drawn from
academia and industry). The primary reviewer will assign at least three
external expert reviewers to carefully review and weigh the
contributions of your work. 

Authors can access the reviews starting on Monday, May 22. The primary
author of each paper may submit a rebuttal by Sunday, May 28 that
addresses factual errors, questions, or misunderstandings raised by the
reviewers. Your paper, the comments of the external reviewers, and your
rebuttal to the reviews will be assessed by the primary reviewer and at
least one other member of the program committee in order to reach a
final decision of whether to accept your paper to the UIST conference.
Authors will be notified of the final review decisions no later than
Monday, June 12, 2006. 

Accepted Full Papers will be published together with accepted Technotes
in the UIST 2006 Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library
<> . Authors of accepted Full Papers and
Technotes must present their research at the conference and will also be
invited to participate in the demo session.
