=========================== CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS ===========================

Interfaces (IUI 2014) Haifa, Israel February 24-27, 2014
IUI'2014 is pleased to invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction
with the conference. The goal of the workshops is to provide a venue for
presenting research on focused topics of interest and an informal forum to
discuss research questions and challenges. 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. We encourage
proposals for a wide range of workshops, including but not limited to:
- Working group meetings around a specific problem or topic; such workshops may
wish to ask participants to submit a white paper or position statement.
- Mini-conferences on specialized topics; such workshops may have their own paper
submission and review processes.
- Mini-competitions or challenges around selected topics with individual or team participation.
