IUI 2012 : 2012 International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
Conference Series : Intelligent User Interfaces
Call For Papers
Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI) is the premier international conference for bringing
together researchers from academia, nonprofit organizations, industry and practitioners
of the trade, who are working on Novel Interaction and Intelligent Interfaces, including
related empirical studies and technologies. IUI 2012 will be held in Lisbon, Portugal,
February 14-17 2012. We invite original long (10 page) and short paper (6 page)
submissions that describe novel user interfaces, applications, interactive and intelligent technologies, empirical studies, and design techniques. Accepted proceeding papers will be published in ACM’s Digital Library. IUI especially encourages submissions on innovative and visionary new concepts or directions for interface design.
New this year:
- Student Doctoral Consortium and travel stipends
- “Highlights of IUI” special papers session: Past seminal or conceptually groundbreaking research in an IUI research area, which has had a major intellectual or
societal impact, will be represented in a special paper session
Major Topics of Interest to IUI include: Intelligent interactive interfaces, systems, and devices, Ubiquitous interfaces, Smart environments and tools, Human-centered interfaces, Mobile interfaces, Multimodal interfaces, Pen-based interfaces, Spoken and natural language interfaces, Conversational interfaces, Affective and social interfaces, Tangible interfaces, Collaborative multiuser interfaces, Adaptive interfaces, Sensor-based interfaces, User modeling and interaction with novel interfaces and devices, Interfaces for personalization and recommender systems, Interfaces for plan-based systems, Interfaces that incorporate knowledge- or agent-based approaches, Help
interfaces for complex tasks, Example- and demonstration-based interfaces, Interfaces for intelligent generation and presentation of information, Intelligent authoring systems, Synthesis of multimodal virtual characters and social robots, Interfaces for games and entertainment, learningbased interactions, health informatics, Empirical studies and evaluations of IUI interfaces, New approaches to designing Intelligent User Interfaces, and related areas.
Background on IUI Content: IUI represents a community of people interested in human-computer interaction, intelligent processing and interfaces that leverage artificial intelligence techniques. IUI is interested in multidisciplinary insights from related fields that shed light on the nature of human tool use and the future of interface design, including psychology, education, linguistics/communications, anthropology, interaction design and media arts, computation/engineering, and related areas. IUI researchers are interested in improving the symbiosis between humans and computers, so that interface design and interactive experiences yield higher performance outcomes. This may involve designing interfaces that incorporate intelligent automated capabilities, if the net impact is a human-computer interaction that improves
performance in critical ways. It may also involve designing an interface that effectively leverages human skills and capabilities, so that human performance with an application excels. In other cases, such as educational interface design, it may involve exercising judgment in when not to automate a function so that humans are encouraged to exert themselves as they acquire new skills or domain knowledge.
Doctoral Consortium CFP Information:
The IUI 2012 Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for Doctoral students to present and receive feedback about their research work in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished researchers. We invite students who feel they would benefit from this kind of feedback on their dissertation to apply for this unique opportunity to share their work with students in a similar situation as well as senior researchers in the field.
In addition, Doctoral Consortium attendees will have the opportunity to be involved with IUI as student volunteers. Women, minority and special needs students, as well as veterans are encouraged to apply to participate as volunteers and for conference travel support.
The Consortium will be held on the 14th of February 2012. The consortium will be organized as a single track, with about 8 to 12 presentations by the students whose applications have been selected by the Doctoral Consortium committee. Selected applicants will receive complimentary conference registration, and a limited, partial reimbursement of travel, accommodation and food expenses.
• Submission: 15th of November 2011 (5:00pm PDT) • Notification: 15th of December 2011 • Camera-ready papers due: 5th of January, 2012 (5:00pm PDT)
