Call for Papers to the Sketch Recognition Workshop of IUI 2009

http://www.iuiconf.org/09workshops.html

Workshop 6, Sketch Recognition

Sketch Recognition is the automated understanding of a hand drawn
diagram by a computer. Topics in sketch recognition include the
development of mathematical algorithms to improve recognition, the
development, use, and impact of applications using sketch recognition,
user interface implications and improvements of sketch-recognition
based applications, and the development and commentary on interaction
modalities that involve sketch recognition.

Call for Papers:
Possible paper topics include, but are not restricted to:

Sketch Recognition Algorithms
Sketch Recognition Applications
User Interface Issues
User Studies
Multimodal Interfaces that include Sketch Recognition
Editing and Display Concerns in Sketch Recognition Applications
Algorithm Comparisons
Research Overviews
Problem Statements

Paper submissions should be 4-10 pages in the IUI format. A small
selection of papers will be chosen for long talks (20 minutes), and
others will be chosen for short talks (10 minutes). If there are a
sufficient number of paper submissions to this workshop, we will open
up a session for poster presentations as well.

Call for Demonstrations:
Participants are also urged to submit demos of previous work to the
demo session.

Call for Competition Submissions:
A sketch recognition competition will take place during the
conference. The domain for the competition will be posted on the
website. Two months before the start of the workshop, the training set
will be posted on the workshop website. During the workshop, workshop
participants will draw additional diagrams for the competition.
Participants will be provided with instructions and stub code to
enable them to create algorithms that will fit in with the testing
architecture. Prizes will be awarded to the best-performing
algorithms.

Important Sketch Recognition Workshop Dates:
Submission: Dec. 1, 2008
Notification: Jan. 2, 2009
Final Version: Jan. 16, 2009
Workshop: Feb. 8, 2009
