IUI 2009 : 13th International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
Conference Series : Intelligent User Interfaces
Call For Papers
IUI is where the community of people interested in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) meets the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. We're also very interested in contributions from related fields, such as psychology, cognitive science, computer graphics, the arts, etc. Unlike traditional AI, our focus is not so much to make the computer smart all by itself, but to make the interaction between computers and people smarter. Unlike traditional HCI, we're more willing to consider solutions that involve large amounts of knowledge and emerging technologies such as natural language understanding, brain computer interfaces or gesture recognition.
IUI 2009 seeks high-quality, original submissions of reports on research about intelligent user interfaces. It encourages participation from around the globe by both academic and industrial researchers and developers. All submissions will be reviewed by a distinguished international program committee.
Submission of Long and Short Papers
There are two categories of paper submissions:
LONG PAPER submissions should report on substantial contributions of lasting value. Each accepted long paper will be presented in a plenary session of the main conference program. An accompanying demonstration can be presented in a poster/demo session. The maximum length is 10 pages in the two-column SIGCHI conference format.
SHORT PAPER submissions typically discuss exciting new work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper. Each accepted short paper will be presented in a poster/demo session. The presentation may include a system demonstration. The maximum length is 4 pages.
All submissions should be prepared according to the standard SIGCHI publications format. For your convenience, we provide paper templates in Microsoft Word and LaTeX:
* Microsoft Word document template
* LaTeX class file
IUI does not use blind review, so please include authors' names and affiliations on your submission.
Submissions must be in PDF format. All papers must be submitted electronically before Friday, 3 October 2008, 5pm US EDT (2100 UTC). Details of the submission process will follow soon on this site. We are on a very short timeline, and no extensions will be granted under any circumstances. If you are planning to work up to the last minute, we recommend submitting a copy of your paper several hours before the deadline, just in case. You can continue to upload revised copies up until the deadline.
All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Accepted papers from both categories will be included in the conference proceedings, to be published in hard copy by the ACM Press and electronically in the ACM Digital Library (http://portal.acm.org/dl.cfm).
Multiple submissions policy: A paper should not be submitted to IUI 2009 if the same paper - or a substantially similar version - has already been accepted for publication by another conference, if it is currently under review for another conference, or if it will be submitted to another conference by the 20th of November 2008.

Why submit to IUI?
The series of annual conferences on Intelligent User Interfaces is the principal international forum for the presentation and discussion of outstanding research and applications involving intelligent user interfaces. Its proceedings, which are available both as hard copy and via the ACM Digital Library, are widely read and cited.
The central track of the technical program comprises plenary presentation of full length papers, which are selected by the program committee after in-depth analysis and discussion. A complementary set of short paper presentations and demos stimulates discussion on work in progress. As a single track conference, you don't have to miss anything.
The conference experience also includes a variety of other activities: workshops, invited talks by leading figures, and an occasional panel. Just as important are the lively informal discussions that are encouraged by the fact that most of the conference events are attended by all of the participants.
The IUI conference gives you a chance to present and to see work in an intimate, focused, no-nonsense event. It is large enough to be diverse and lively (we expect around 200 people), but small enough to avoid the impersonal atmosphere of conferences with thousands of people.
IUI 2009 encourages submissions from those who have done relevant work but who have not previously submitted to an IUI conference. In case of doubt about the relevance of your work, do not hesitate to ask the program chairs (papers at iuiconf.org) or the short paper chairs (short-papers at iuiconf.org) for advice.
The vast majority of the attendees are actively involved with conceiving and developing cutting-edge interfaces leading to a high and fast impact of research results presented at IUI. It brings together people from academics, industry, and nonprofits.
And Sanibel Island is always a beautiful place in February!
Demos and Short Papers
An evening will be devoted to a poster-style session where Short Papers and Demos will be presented (with food for the attendees!). Both categories will appear in the proceedings. The program will be rounded out by invited speakers, panels, and social events.
Topics of interest for IUI include all aspects of intelligent user interfaces. Successful papers will include aspects of both intelligence and interface. The following are sample topics:
Processing of multimodal input
Natural language and speech processing
Generation of system output
Intelligent visualization tools
Intelligent generation of multimedia presentations
Intelligent interfaces for ubiquitous computing
Intelligent assistants for complex tasks
Support for collaboration in multiuser environments
Intelligent information and knowledge management
Categories of intelligence
Novel intelligent interfaces
Affective, social and aesthetic interfaces
User-adaptivity in interactive systems
Personalization and recommender systems
Modeling and prediction of user behavior
Planning and plan recognition
Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design and generation
Proactive and agent-based paradigms for user interaction
Example- and demonstration-based interfaces
User studies concerning intelligent interfaces
Evaluations of implemented intelligent user interfaces
