IUI 2013: ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces

Santa Monica, CA – March 19-22, 2013
Twitter: @IUIConference

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

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.

Workshops will be held on the first day of the conference (March
19th). Please refer to the workshop websites provided by each workshop
organizer for complete details. Each workshop proposal was reviewed
and accepted based on a call for organizers.

-IUI2013: Workshop on Interactive Machine Learning

A growing community of researchers at the intersection of ML and
human-computer interaction are making interaction with humans a
central part of developing ML systems. These efforts include applying
interaction design principles to ML systems, using human-subject
testing to evaluate ML systems and inspire new methods, and changing
the input and output channels of ML systems to better leverage human
capabilities. With this workshop at IUI 2013 we aim to bring this
community together to share ideas, get up-to-date on recent advances,
progress towards a common framework and terminology for the field, and
discuss the open questions and challenges.

-IUI2013: Second Workshop on Interacting with Smart Objects

The aim of this workshop is to facilitate discussion on the design of
interaction with smart objects.

The workshop welcomes researchers, practitioners and experts from the
various fields from human-computer interaction.

-IUI2013: 3rd Workshop on Location Awareness for Mixed and Dual Reality

The workshop explores the interactions between location awareness and
Dual/Mixed Reality in smart environments and the impact on culture and
society. The main scope of this workshop is: How can the Dual Reality
paradigm be used to improve applications in smart environments and
which new possibilities are opened up by these paradigms? This
includes positioning methods and location-based services using the DR
paradigm, such as navigation services and group interaction services
(location-based social signal processing). The workshop is also open
to discuss sensor and actuator technologies that may help to realize
the synchronization of the virtual and real world.

-IUI2013: Intelligent User Interfaces for Developing Regions

This workshop aims to look at interaction from the viewpoint of users
in developing regions. We will identify interesting research
challenges and usability obstacles experienced by this user population
at the workshop. Related workshops were conducted in 2008 and 2011,
and several interesting themes emerged, for example low-literacy and
multimodal interfaces. In 2013, we will build on past workshops by
focusing on different themes that affect the interactions of this
target population. At IUI4DR 2013, we aim to focus on understanding
the problem(s) faced by people in developing regions, and how those
problems could be addressed by appropriate intelligent user interface


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.
