ACM IUI 2016: ACM Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces

Sonoma, CA, USA
March 7 - 10, 2016

ACM IUI 2016 is the 21st annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces 
community and serves as a premier international forum for reporting 
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces. 
ACM IUI is where the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) community meets 
the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. We are also very interested 
in contributions from related fields, such as psychology, behavioral 
science, cognitive science, computer graphics, design, the arts, etc.

The conference brings together people from academia, industry and 
non-profit organizations and gives its participants the opportunity 
to present and see cutting-edge IUI work in an focused and interactive 
setting. It is large enough to be diverse and lively (we expect over 
200 people), but small enough to allow for extensive interaction among 
attendees and easy attendance to the events that the conference offers, 
ranging from oral paper presentations, poster sessions, workshops, 
panels and doctoral consortium for graduate students. 

IUI topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Processing of multi-modal input (gestures, eye gaze, face, physiological information etc.)
   - Natural language and speech processing
   - Intelligent visualization tools
   - Generation of multimodal content
   - Big Data/Text summarization and analytics
   - Intelligent interfaces for ubiquitous computing
   - Smart environments and tangible computing
   - Smart interaction and interfaces for wearable computing
   - Intelligent assistants for complex tasks
   - Support for collaboration in multiuser environments
   - Persuasive and assistive technologies in IUI
   - Affective, social and aesthetic interfaces
   - Education and learning-related technologies
   - User-Adaptive interaction
   - Recommender systems
   - Modelling and prediction of user behaviour
   - Interactive Machine Learning
   - Planning and plan recognition for IUI
   - Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design and generation
   - Proactive and agent-based paradigms for user interaction
   - Example-and demonstration-based interfaces
   - Evaluations of intelligent user interfaces


Full and Short Papers    
We invite original paper submissions that describe novel user interfaces,
 applications, interactive and intelligent technologies, empirical 
 studies, or design techniques. IUI 2016 especially encourages submissions 
 on innovative and visionary new concepts or directions for the design 
 of intelligent interfaces. We do not require evaluations with users, 
 but we do expect papers to include an appropriate evaluation for their 
 stated contribution. Accepted papers will appear in the ACM Digital 
 Library and citation indices. 

Full papers (10 pages with unlimited references) should make substantial, 
novel and relevant contributions to the field. 

Short papers (4 pages with unlimited references) can either contain 
smaller contributions or novel work that is still progress. 

Accepted full papers will be invited for oral presentation and short 
papers either as oral or poster presentation. Authors of accepted 
IUI 2016 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 2016". For information on what counts 
as an appropriate "extension" of a conference paper for TiiS, see submissions)

Abstracts Due: October 9, 2015, 6pm PST
Full and Short Papers Due: October 14, 2015, 6pm PST

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

Abstracts Due: December 20, 2015, 6pm PST

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.

Abstracts Due: December 20, 2015, 6pm PST

Student Consortium
The ACM IUI 2016 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.
