Call For Papers

UCAI '21: Workshop on User-Centered Artificial Intelligence
held in conjunction with the
Mensch und Computer 2021
Ingolstadt, Germany, September 5th, 2021

The proliferation of AI-based techniques poses a range of new challenges for the design and engineering of intelligent and adaptive systems since they tend to act as black boxes and do not offer the user sufficient transparency, control, and interaction opportunities, which are considered major goals of user-centered design in the HCI field. The 2nd Workshop on User-Centered Artificial Intelligence (UCAI ‘21), held in conjunction with the 2021 Mensch und Computer conference, aims at sharing and discussing recent developments at the intersection of HCI and AI, and at exploring novel methodological, technical, and interaction approaches. The full-day workshop will feature oral or poster presentations of accepted full and position papers, respectively, and is intended to encourage discussion, networking and advancing the research agenda in this emerging field of research.

### Important Dates ###

- Submission deadline: June 11th, 2021
- Notification: July 2nd, 2021
- Camera-ready deadline: July 9th, 2021

### Organizers ###

- Daniel Buschek, University of Bayreuth, Germany
- Benedikt Loepp, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany
- Hanna Schäfer, University of Konstanz, Germany
- Wolfgang Wörndl, Technical University of Munich, Germany

### Submissions ###

We solicit submission of position papers of 2 pages and full papers of 4-6 pages in length (excluding references). Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- transparent and explainable AI-based systems
- personalization, recommendation and adaptation
- UI paradigms for interacting with intelligent algorithms
- presentation and interaction design for AI-based systems
- user control of intelligent algorithms
- mixed-initiative interaction
- user-centric evaluation of AI-based systems
- ethical and legal aspects of AI-based systems

Papers should be prepared according to the ACM SIGCONF template used by the main conference (, but in the two-column format, and submitted in either German or English language via ConfTool ( All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least two committee members (single-blind, i.e. anonymization is not required). For accepted papers, at least one author must attend the workshop to present the work (virtual participation will be possible in case of travel restrictions). Accepted papers will be published in the Mensch und Computer Workshop Proceedings as open access publications available through the GI digital library.
