ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2015)

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

IUI 2015 is the 20th 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 Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) meets the Artificial
Intelligence (AI) community. We’re also very interested in contributions
from related fields, such as psychology, behavioral science, cognitive
science, computer graphics, design, the arts, etc.

Why submit to IUI?
At IUI our focus is to improve the interaction between machine
intelligence and human intelligence – other conferences focus on one side or the
other, whereas we address the complex interaction between the two. Unlike
traditional AI, our focus is not so much to make the computer smart all
by itself, but to make the interaction between computers and people
smarter.

Unlike traditional HCI, we are more willing to consider solutions that
involve data mining, knowledge representation, novel interaction
paradigms, and new emerging technologies.
The IUI conference brings together people from academia, industry, and
nonprofits and gives you a chance to present and to see work results in
an intimate, focused, and interactive event. It is large enough to be
diverse and lively (we expect over 200 people), but small enough that you get a
chance to talk to all the attendees, see all the posters, and take in
all the presentations. As an ACM conference, papers appear in the ACM
Digital Library and citation indices. There will also be a journal publication
path for long papers. IUI is a single track conference, so you don’t have to
miss anything!

* User Input

SUBMISSION
———————————————————————–

Full and Short Papers (New Cooperation Model between TiiS and
IUI)

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. 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 do expect papers to include an
appropriate evaluation for their stated contribution. Full papers (10
pages with unlimited references) should make substantial, novel and relevant
contributions to the field. Short (4 pages with unlimited references)
papers can either contain smaller contributions, novel ground-breaking
ideas, or work in progress. Accepted full papers will be invited for
oral presentation and short papers either as oral or poster presentation.
Authors of accepted IUI 2015 full papers will have an opportunity to
submit extended versions to the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent
Systems (TiiS, http://tiis.acm.org) for consideration for a special
issue titled “Highlights of IUI 2015”. One of the 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 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

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
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
Student Consortium

The 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.

Submissions Due: October 31, 2014
Workshops

Workshops will be held on the first and last 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.

Workshop Proposals due: September 12, 2014

New Cooperation Agreement between the IUI Conference Series and ACM TiiS
The steering committee of the 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 IUI 2015 full papers 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 IUI 2015”. One of the 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 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 IUI conference) will have an opportunity to present their work
at IUI 2015 in a presentation slot at least as long as that for an IUI 2015
short paper.
