ACM IUI 2015: ACM Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Atlanta, GA, USA
March 29 - April 1, 2015
http://iui.acm.org/

ACM IUI 2015 is the 20th annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces
community and serves as a premier international forum for reporting
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces. ACM
IUI is where the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) community meets the
Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. We are also very interested in
contributions from related fields, such as psychology, behavioral science,
cognitive science, computer graphics, design, the arts, etc.

Why submit to ACM IUI?
At ACM IUI, we focus on the interaction between machine intelligence and
human intelligence. While other conferences focus on one side or the other,
we address the complex interaction between the two. We welcome research
that explores how to make the interaction between computers and people
smarter, which may leverage solutions from data mining, knowledge
representation, novel interaction paradigms, and emerging technologies. We
strongly encourage submissions that discuss research from both HCI and AI
simultaneously, but also welcome works that focus more on one side or the
other.

The ACM IUI conference brings together people from academia, industry,
nonprofits and government, to showcase and discuss work results in an
intimate, focused, and interactive setting. We expect this year’s ACM IUI
to be attended by a diverse and livery crowd of over 200 attendees, a good
size that allows our attendees to strike up conversations and network with
other attendees, see all the posters, and take in all the presentations. As
an ACM conference, ACM IUI papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library
and citation indices. There will also be a journal publication path for
long papers. ACM IUI is a single-track conference, so you will not miss
anything!

SUBMISSION
-------------------

Full and Short Papers     (NEW! Special opportunity to submit to the TiiS
journal)
-----------------------------
We invite original paper submissions that describe novel user interfaces,
applications, interactive and intelligent technologies, empirical studies,
or design techniques. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital
Library. ACM IUI 2015 especially encourages submissions on innovative and
visionary new concepts or directions for interface design. We do not
require evaluations with users, but we expect papers to include appropriate
evaluation for their stated contributions.

Full papers (10 pages with unlimited references) should make substantial,
novel and relevant contributions to the field. Short papers (4 pages with
unlimited references) may present focused contributions, ideas, and work in
progress. Accepted full papers will be invited for oral presentation and
short papers either as oral or poster presentation.

Authors of accepted ACM IUI 2015 full papers will have an opportunity to
submit extended versions to the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent
Systems (TiiS, tiis.acm.org) for consideration for a special issue titled
"Highlights of ACM IUI 2015". An ACM IUI 2015 program chair will serve as
an associate editor to manage the reviewing for that special issue, and the
reviewing schedule will ensure that it appears in the ACM Digital Library
in early 2016, before ACM IUI 2016. (For information on what counts as an
appropriate "extension" of a conference paper for TiiS, see
http://tiis.acm.org/for-authors.html#types-of-submission).

Abstracts Due: October 13, 2014
Full and Short Papers Due: October 17, 2014
Rebuttal Start: December 8, 2014
Rebuttal End: December 12, 2014
Notification to Authors: December 19, 2014
Camera-Ready Due: January 16, 2015


Posters
----------
Posters provide an opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting useful
feedback on early- stage work and fostering discussions and collaborations
among colleagues. We invite submissions on all topics of the conference.
All submissions should convey a scientific result or work in progress that
is not yet ready to be published as a full length research paper at a
refereed conference. The page limit for poster papers is 4 pages. Accepted
poster papers will appear in the companion proceedings in the ACM Digital
Library.

Submissions Due: January 16, 2015
Notification to Authors: February 13, 2015
Camera-Ready Due: February 20, 2015

Demonstrations
---------------------
The demonstrations track complements the overall program of the conference.
Demonstrations show implementations of novel, interesting, and important
intelligent user interface concepts or systems. We invite submissions
relevant to intelligent user interfaces and which address, but are not
limited to, the topics of the conference. All submissions are intended to
convey a scientific result or work in progress and should not be
advertisements for commercial software packages. The page limit for demo
papers is 4 pages. Accepted demo papers will be published in the companion
proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Submissions Due: January 16, 2015
Notification to Authors: February 13, 2015
Camera-Ready Due: February 20, 2015

Student Consortium
---------------------------
The ACM IUI 2015 Student Consortium provides an opportunity for Masters and
Doctoral students to present and receive feedback about their research in
an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of mentors,
selected from senior people in the field. We invite students who feel they
would benefit from this kind of feedback on their research to apply for
this unique opportunity to share their work with students in a similar
situation as well as senior researchers in the field. The strongest
candidates will be those who have a clear topic and research approach, and
have made some progress, but who are not so far along their research that
they can no longer make changes.

Students who are accepted into the consortium will receive partial
financial support for their travel to the conference. Details of the
financial support will be announced soon.

Submissions Due: January 16, 2015
Notification to Authors: February 13, 2015
Camera-Ready Due: February 20, 2015

Workshop Proposals
----------------------------
We invite proposals for full-day and half-day workshops on topics that are
of interest to the ACM IUI community. Workshops will be held on the first
(March 29) and last day (April 1) of the conference. The conference may
provide a free registration for each workshop to assist its organization.

Workshop proposals due: September 12, 2014
Notification: October 15, 2014

Tutorial Proposals
------------------------
We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced
presenters. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research
and development in a specific area strongly related to ACM IUI. Tutorials
on interdisciplinary areas, novel or fast growing directions, and
significant practical applications are also encouraged. Accepted tutorial
organizers will be exempt from the registration fee (one per tutorial).

Tutorials proposals due: September 12, 2014
Notification: October 15, 2014

**** New Cooperation Agreement between the ACM IUI Conference Series and
ACM TiiS ****

The steering committee of the ACM IUI conference series has agreed with the
editors-in-chief of the ACM TiiS on the following forms of collaboration
between the conference and the journal, which will be repeated in
subsequent years:

1. Authors of accepted ACM IUI 2015 full papers will have an opportunity to
submit extended versions to the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent
Systems (TiiS, tiis.acm.org) for consideration for a special issue titled
"Highlights of ACM IUI 2015". One of the ACM IUI 2015 program chairs will
serve as an associate editor who manages the reviewing for that special
issue, and the reviewing schedule will ensure that it appears in the ACM
Digital Library in early 2016, before ACM IUI 2016. (For information on
what counts as an appropriate "extension" of a conference paper for TiiS,
see http://tiis.acm.org/for-authors.html#types-of-submission ).

2. The authors of any TiiS article that has been accepted during the year
2014 (and that does not represent an extension of a paper presented at an
earlier ACM IUI conference) will have an opportunity to present their work
at ACM IUI 2015 in a presentation slot at least as long as that for an ACM
IUI 2015 short paper.
