*** Call for Student Consortium (and Travel Award) ***

22nd ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
IUI 2017

St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus

March 13-16, 2017

http://iui.acm.org/2017/studcons.html


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.
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.


About Student Consortium

The IUI 2017 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 use this
unique opportunity to share their work with students in a similar situation
as well as senior researchers in the field. The consortium will be organized
with 8 to 12 presentations by the students, whose applications have been
selected by the Student Consortium chairs. 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 in their research that they can no
longer make changes. The final version of accepted SC submissions will be
included in the "Companion" volume of the proceedings along with
workshops, tutorials, posters and demos and will be published at the ACM DL.

Complimentary/reduced conference registration will be available for students.
Student Consortium participants will be given high priority when applying for
the student travel awards. Moreover, we are working to provide partial
reimbursement of travel/accommodation expenses specifically for the
participants of the Student Consortium. Check the details on the travelling
grants page and make sure to apply.


Objectives

The objectives of the student consortium are to:
· Serve as a supportive setting to provide/receive feedback on students'
current doctoral and masters' research and guidance on future research
directions
· Offer each student comments and fresh perspectives on their work from
researchers and students outside of their own institution
· Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars and a
spirit of collaborative research
· Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other
researchers and conference events
