IUI 2013: ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces

 

 

Santa Monica, CA - March 19-22, 2013

http://iuiconf.org/

 

 

IUI 2013 is the 18th annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community
and serves as the principal international forum for reporting outstanding
research and development on intelligent user interfaces.

 

IUI is where the community of people interested in Human-Computer
Interaction (HCI) meets the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. We are
very interested in contributions that bridge these two fields and also
related fields, such as psychology, cognitive science, computer graphics,
the arts, etc. IUI researchers are interested in improving the symbiosis
between humans and computers, so that interface design and interactive
experiences yield higher performance outcomes. This may involve designing
interfaces that incorporate intelligent automated capabilities, if the net
impact is a human-computer interaction that improves performance or
usability in critical ways.

It may also involve designing an interface that effectively leverages human
skills and capabilities, so that human performance with an application
excels. In other cases, such as educational interface design, it may involve
exercising judgment in when not to automate a function so that humans are
encouraged to exert themselves as they acquire new skills or domain
knowledge.

 

We call for original submissions that describe novel technologies and
applications to intelligent user interfaces.

Submission Venues

 

Papers

 

We invite original paper submissions that describe novel user interfaces,
applications, interactive and intelligent technologies, empirical studies,
or design techniques. See the topics section above for a more comprehensive
list of areas in which IUI encourages submissions. Accepted papers will be
published in the ACM Digital Library. IUI 2013 especially encourages
submissions on innovative and visionary new concepts or directions for
interface design. We do not require evaluations with users, but we do expect
papers to include an appropriate evaluation for their stated contribution.

 

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.

 

Demonstrations

 

The demonstrations track of the IUI 2013 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 outlined in the call for
papers. All submissions are intended to convey a scientific result or work
in progress and should not be advertisements for commercial software
packages.

 

Workshops

 

Workshops will be held on the first day of the conference. We invite
submissions of full-day (6 hours) and half-day (3 hours) workshop proposals
on any of the conference topics.

 

Student Consortium

 

The IUI 2013 Student Consortium provides an opportunity for Masters and
Doctoral students to present and receive feedback about their research work
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 dissertation 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 with their thesis that
they can no longer make changes. In addition to stating how you will gain
from participation, both you and your advisor should be clear on what you
can contribute to the Consortium.
