IUI 2013: ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces



Santa Monica, CA - March 19-22, 2013




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




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 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 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 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.
