========== DETAILS ==========

UIST (ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology) is the premier forum for innovations in the software and technology of human-computer interfaces. 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 traditional graphical & Web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, 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.

Submission deadline for posters, demos, and doctoral symposium proposals:
Friday, July 11, 2008, 11:59PM PST

Notification of acceptance:
Friday, August 8, 2008

Final camera-ready versions due:
Friday, September 5, 2008

========== CALL FOR POSTERS ==========

Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present work to conference attendees during special poster sessions. Posters provide an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than papers or tech notes.

A poster submission should be in the form of a two-page paper in UIST format, describing the research problem, contribution, and value to UIST attendees. In addition to the two-page paper, poster submissions require submitting a sketch of the poster itself.  Both the paper and poster should be submitted as PDF files.  Authors may also include a video (optional). Video files should be at most three minutes long and 30MB in size.

See the video guide:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2008/call/VideoGuide.html

...and the general submission information:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2008/call/index.html#GenInfo

...for more details.

Before designing your poster, we recommend checking out the UIST 2005 Poster Example Gallery:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2005/posterexamplegallery.html

Accepted poster abstracts will be published together with demos in both a booklet and a DVD distributed to the conference attendees. Posters and videos may also be published in the DVD, at the authors' discretion. Poster abstracts and previews should be submitted electronically to:

http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi<http://www.precisionconference.com/%7Esigchi>

Posters will be displayed on corkboards during conference break periods. We expect to be able to accommodate posters of up to 3 feet by 4 feet (either vertical or horizontal), so we suggest using that size or smaller for your prototype. In addition, poster authors are expected to give a 40-second presentation of their work at the conference as part of the "UIST madness" session.

Authors will be notified of poster results on or before Friday, August 8, 2008. Final versions will be due Friday, September 5, 2008.

========== CALL FOR DEMONSTRATIONS ==========

Peer-reviewed demonstrations show early implementations of novel, interesting, and important interaction concepts or user interface systems. They can also serve to showcase commercial products not previously described in the research literature. Demonstrations should be brief, so that they can be shown repeatedly. We particularly encourage demos with which attendees can interact.

Accepted demos will be published, together with posters, in a booklet distributed to UIST attendees. UIST will showcase accepted demos at a demo reception on Monday evening, October 20. In addition, demo presenters are expected to give a 40-second summary of their work at the conference as part of the "UIST madness" session. We will also invite authors of accepted papers and Tech Notes to present their work at the demo reception.

A demo submission consists of an extended abstract in UIST format that should be no more than two ACM conference pages in length. Submitting an accompanying video is optional, but highly encouraged. Any submitted video should be at most three minutes long and 30MB in size. See the video guide:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2008/call/VideoGuide.html

...and the general submission information:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2008/call/index.html#GenInfo

...for more details.

Both the demo abstract and the optional digital video should be submitted electronically to:

http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi<http://www.precisionconference.com/%7Esigchi>

Authors who need to submit a physical videotape should contact the Demos chairs directly. Authors will be notified of demo results on or before Friday, August 8. Final versions will be due Friday, September 5, 2008.

========== CALL FOR DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM PRESENTATIONS ==========

The UIST Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced UIST researchers in an informal and interactive setting. We welcome applications from current Ph.D. students studying within the full range of disciplines and approaches that contribute to the UIST community. We will give preference to applicants beyond the proposal stage and well into their dissertation research. Each applicant should provide a short written paper (no more than four pages in normal UIST format, see the authors' guide at:

http://www.acm.org/uist/uist2008/call/AuthorGuide.html

This paper should describe ongoing work and might summarize the student's full dissertation work, or highlight a particular part in depth.

The Doctoral Symposium committee will select approximately eight participants who will be expected to give a short presentation of their work, which will be followed by an extensive discussion. In addition, each student is encouraged to present a poster describing his or her work to the full conference. Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the symposium.

The symposium will start with an informal dinner Saturday evening, October 18, continue all day Sunday, October 19, and conclude with poster presentations at the UIST poster reception. Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in the UIST conference companion distributed at the conference. We anticipate that a travel stipend and free registration to the UIST conference will be provided to each participant.

Doctoral Symposium papers and poster sketches should be submitted electronically to:

http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi<http://www.precisionconference.com/%7Esigchi>

Authors will be notified of doctoral symposium results on or before Friday, August 8.
