22nd ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces IUI 2017

St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus

March 13-16, 2017

http://iui.acm.org/2017

Overview

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 renowned 5 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. 

Submission

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, http://tiis.acm.org) 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     process.

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: http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform/ . 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.)

*** First Call for Student Travelling Support ***

Following the tradition of previous years, we will offer student participation support to attend the IUI 2017 Conference. Currently, the support is provided in the form of an ACM SIGCHI Student Travel Grant (SSTG) which includes free registration and some travelling support. The grant is intended for student authors who personally present papers accepted in any of the tracks (full papers, short papers, posters, demos, workshop papers), or participate in the Doctoral Consortium. 

Students should submit applications regardless of whether or not their papers have been accepted. However, travel awards will only be given to students who have an accepted paper, note or poster and who will be presenting that work themselves, or who present their PhD project at the Doctoral Consortium. 

Applications must be submitted by August 1st, 2016. Late applications will not be considered. To apply for a SSTG Student Travel Award, the student should submit the following:

* A completed application form

* A resume

* A letter of support from the student?s research advisor

* Optionally: Background material that supports the application,         e.g. benefits of attending the conference or the student?s research         background

* You must be a member of SIGAI before you apply ($11 dues)

Students should apply by submitting their application to PCS (http://precisionconference.com/~sigchi/?goto=submissions/ [precisionconference.com]) and include the information detailed in the Student Award Application. More information and a link for submitting an application (in early July 2016) can be found on the SIGCHI website (http://www.sigchi.org/conferences/funding/student-travel-grant [www.sigchi.org]).

Deadline for applications for student support: August 1st, 2016.

Notification of Results: August 15th, 2016.

** Third Call for Workshop Proposals ***

IUI 2017 is pleased to invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The goal of the workshops is to provide a venue for presenting research on focused topics of interest and an informal forum to discuss research questions and challenges. Workshops will be held on the first day of the conference. We invite submissions of full-day (6 hours) and half-day (3 hours) workshop proposals on any of the conference topics. 

We encourage proposals for a wide range of workshops, including but not limited to:

· "Mini-conferences" on specialized topics; such workshops may have their   own paper submission and review processes.

· "Late breaking work" meetings; such workshops usually have a lighter   review process (e.g. based on abstracts only).

· "Hands-on" workshops around a specific problem or topic that may wish to   ask participants to submit a position statement.

· "Project centric" workshops that may be closely related to the scope of an existing large scale (e.g. EU funded) project.

· "Mini-competitions", challenges, or hack-a-thons around selected topics   with individual or team participation.

Proposal Format

Note: The key to a successful workshop submission is to CONTACT THE CHAIRS WITH YOUR IDEAS (workshop2017@iui.acm.org), and work together to prepare an exciting proposal!

Workshop proposals should be maximum 2 pages long and follow the formatting instructions from SIGCHI Paper Format, http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform [www.sigchi.org] . Please submit your proposal by e-mail to the workshop chairs at workshop2017@iui.acm.org.

The proposals should be organized as follows:

· Name and title: A one-word workshop acronym and a full title.

· Description of workshop topic and goal: This description should discuss   the relevance of the suggested topic to IUI and its interest for the IUI 2017   audience. Include a brief discussion of why and for which audience the    workshop is of particular interest.

· Organizers: Names, affiliations, emails, and web pages of the workshop   organizers. This can be a single person or a group of people. Strong   proposals normally include organizers who bring differing perspectives on   the topic and are actively connected to the communities of potential   participants. Please indicate the primary contact person and the organizers who plan to attend the workshop.

· Previous history: List of previous workshops that were held on the topic   including the conferences that hosted past workshops and the number of   participants. Also please provide the list of other workshops organized by workshop organizers in the past.

· Workshop program committee: Names and affiliation of the members of the   workshop program committee that will evaluate the workshop submissions.

· Participants: A statement saying how many participants you expect and how   you plan to invite participants for the workshop. We recommend the   proposal to include the names of at least 10 people who have expressed   interest to participate in the workshop.

· Workshop format: A brief description of the workshop format regarding the   mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels,   demonstrations, and general discussion.

· Length: Full-day or half-day.

· Proposal format: Workshop proposals should be maximum 2 pages long   and follow the formatting instructions from SIGCHI:   http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform [www.sigchi.org] .

Additional Guidelines

· Workshop proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by the workshop chairs   and the IUI 2017 program committee chairs.

· Organizers: We strongly encourage the workshop organizers to attend IUI   and take part in their workshop. This can make the workshops more   appealing for the participants and strengthen the discussion part.

· Workshop summary: An extended abstract (max. 3 pages) with a summary   of the workshop goals and an overview of the workshop topics will be   included in the ACM Digital Library for IUI 2017. 

· Workshop proceedings: At the convenience of the workshop organizers, we   will arrange a joint volume of online proceedings for the workshop papers.   Workshops should request the authors to submit papers in the ACM SIGCHI   Paper Format. 

· Cancellation: Workshops with fewer than 10 submissions by December 23,   2016 may be cancelled. This will be done in consultation between the   workshop chairs of IUI 2017 and the workshop organizers.

Additionally, we strongly encourage to have workshop organizers from different institutions and research communities, bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic. We welcome workshops with a creative structure that attracts various types of contributions and ensures rich interactions.

The organizers of accepted workshops are responsible for producing a call for participation and publicizing it, such as distributing the call to relevant newsgroups and electronic mailing lists, and especially to potential audiences from outside the IUI conference community. Workshop organizers will maintain their own web site with updated information about the workshop and the IUI 2017 web site will refer to the workshop site. The workshop organizers will coordinate the paper sollicitation, collection, and review process, and coordinate the production of the joint online proceedings with IUI 2017 workshop chairs.
