22nd ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
IUI 2017

St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus

March 13-16, 2017


ACM IUI 2017 is the 22nd annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces
community and serves as a premier international forum for reporting
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces.

The 22nd edition of the conference will be held in Limassol, Cyprus.
Limassol (or Lemesos) is a multicultural bustling town, flanked by two
ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion, and guarded by the Amathusian
Aphrodite and Appolo Hylates. It is a town of great visual diversity and
contrast from spectacular seafront views, historic places like the mediaeval
Castle, and Byzantine churches. Along the 17 km long sandy beaches, two
Marinas, world renowned5 star hotels, and a most exciting dining, shopping,
nightlife and yachting scene create a year-round vibrant lifestyle well beyond
the expectations of a Mediterranean island.

ACM IUI is where the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) community meets
the Artificial Intelligence (AI), with contributions from related fields such as
psychology, behavioral science, cognitive science, computer graphics, design
or the arts. Our focus is to improve the interaction between humans and
machines, by leveraging both more traditional HCI approaches, as well as
solutions that involve state-of-the art AI techniques such as machine
learning, natural language processing, data mining, knowledge
representation and reasoning. ACM IUI welcomes contribution from any
relevant arena: academia, business, or non-profit organizations.

Why you should submit to ACM IUI:

At ACM IUI, we focus on the interaction between machine intelligence and
human intelligence. While other conferences focus on one side or the other,
we address the complex interaction between the two. We welcome research
that explores how to make the interaction between computers and people
smarter, which may leverage solutions from data mining, knowledge
representation, novel interaction paradigms, and emerging technologies. We
strongly encourage submissions that discuss research from both HCI and AI
simultaneously, but also welcome works that focus more on one side or the other.

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 a focused and interactive setting. It is large
enough to be diverse and lively, 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. 


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 2017 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.
A selected set of accepted top quality full papers will be invited to submit
their extended versions for publication in an ACM Transactions on
Interactive Intelligent Systems (TiiS, special issue
titled "Highlights of IUI 2017".

Examples of ACM IUI topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 Intelligent visualization tools
 User-Adaptive interaction and personalization
 Recommender systems
 Intelligent wearable, mobile and ubiquitous interfaces
 Modeling and prediction of user behavior
 Information retrieval and search
 Education and learning-related technologies
 Social media analysis
 Multi-modal interfaces (speech, gestures, eye gaze, face, physiological
   information etc.)
 Natural language and speech processing
 Generation of multimodal content
 Big Data and analytics
 Smart environments and tangible computing
 Intelligent assistants for complex tasks
 Collaborative interfaces
 Persuasive and assistive technologies in IUI
 Affective and aesthetic interfaces
 Interactive machine learning
 Planning and plan recognition for IUI
 Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design and generation
 Proactive and agent-based user interaction
 Example-and demonstration-based interfaces
 Evaluations of intelligent user interfaces

Submission Guidelines

 Full paper (anonymized 10 pages, references do not count toward the page
   limit) should make substantial, novel, and relevant contribution to the field. 

 Short paper (anonymized 4 pages, references do not count toward the page
   limit) is a much more focused and succinct contribution to the field. Short
   papers are not expected to include a discussion of related work that is as
   broad and complete as that of full papers. 

 Anonymization: ACM IUI uses a double-blind review process. All submissions
   must be appropriately anonymized according to the following guidelines:
1. Author's names and affiliations are not visible anywhere in the paper.
2. Acknowledgements should be anonymized or removed during the review
3. Self-citations should be included where necessary, but must use the third
     person. For example, "... as shown in our previous user study [2] ..." is not
     allowed, whereas "... as shown in Smith et al. [2] " is acceptable (because in
     this case the citation [2] will NOT be perceived as self-citation). 

Failure to follow these guidelines may results in submissions being rejected
without review.

Submissions should follow the standard SigCHI format available here: . You may use either the
Microsoft Word template or the LaTeX template.

Accepted full papers will be invited for oral presentation. Accepted short
papers will be invited either as oral or poster presentation, depending on
the quality of the papers.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the
proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be
up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to
published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are
published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the
official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
