Announcement and Call for Participation
Workshop on Perceptive User Interfaces (PUI'01)
November 15-16, 2001
BoardWalk Inn, Lake Buena Vista, Florida
Human-computer interaction has not fundamentally changed for nearly two
decades: most users are still limited to interacting with computers via
keyboards and pointing devices. However an increasing number of
researchers are developing technologies to add perceptive capabilities to
the human-computer interface. Such perceptive user interfaces will
transform the nature of human computer interaction.
The 2001 Workshop on Perceptive User Interfaces (PUI'01) will be held at
Disney's BoardWalk Inn in Orlando Florida, immediately following the ACM
UIST'01 conference also held in the BoardWalk Inn.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia
and industry with common interests in making human-computer interaction
more natural and compelling by integrating perceptive capabilities into the
user interface. The intimate size, focus on discussion, and comfortable
surroundings will make this workshop an excellent opportunity to exchange
ideas, share research results and learn about issues and technologies
driving the next generation of user interfaces.
The two-day workshop will be structured to facilitate a high degree of
interaction. There will be oral and poster presentations of current
research, invited talks, focused discussion or break-out sessions, panel
discussions, and open discussion time. The format is intended to emphasize
the interdisciplinary nature of perceptive user interfaces, and to expose
the participants to the main issues and challenges in each of the related
Topics of interest include multimodal interfaces, interactions with
attentive/intelligent environments, vision-based interfaces, speech and
conversational interfaces, haptics, interactions with
virtual/augmented/mixed reality, learning and user modeling, cognitive
studies related to perceptive interfaces, sensor fusion, and systems issues
associated with perceptive user interfaces.
There are three categories of submissions, due by July 6, 2001:
(1) FULL PAPER describing original research in areas related to perceptive
user interfaces. Accepted papers will be presented orally at the workshop.
(2) RESEARCH NOTE describing ongoing research and/or demonstrations.
Accepted research notes will be presented at a poster/demo session.
(3) PANEL PROPOSAL describing a panel, break-out session intending to
promote and provoke relevant discussion.
See the workshop's web site for more detailed submission instructions.
