IUI 2013: ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces

Los Angeles, CA - March 19-22, 2013

IUI 2013 is the 18th annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces
community and serves as the principal international forum for
reporting outstanding research and development on intelligent user

IUI is where the community of people interested in Human-Computer
Interaction (HCI) meets the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. We
are very interested in contributions that bridge these two fields and
also related fields, such as psychology, cognitive science, computer
graphics, the arts, etc. 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 or usability 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.

We call for original submissions that describe novel technologies and
applications to intelligent user interfaces.

Submission Venues


We invite original paper submissions that describe novel user
interfaces, applications, interactive and intelligent technologies,
empirical studies, or design techniques. See the topics section above
for a more comprehensive list of areas in which IUI encourages
submissions. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital
Library. IUI 2013 especially encourages submissions on innovative and
visionary new concepts or directions for interface design. We do not
require evaluations with users, but we do expect papers to include an
appropriate evaluation for their stated contribution.


Posters provide an opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting
useful feedback on early- stage work and fostering discussions and
collaborations among colleagues. We invite submissions on all topics
of the conference. All submissions should convey a scientific result
or work in progress that is not yet ready to be published as a full
length research paper at a refereed conference.


The demonstrations track of the IUI 2013 complements the overall
program of the conference. Demonstrations show implementations of
novel, interesting, and important intelligent user interface concepts
or systems. We invite submissions relevant to intelligent user
interfaces and which address, but are not limited to, the topics of
the conference outlined in the call for papers. All submissions are
intended to convey a scientific result or work in progress and should
not be advertisements for commercial software packages.


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.

Student Consortium

The IUI 2013 Student Consortium provides an opportunity for Masters
and Doctoral students to present and receive feedback about their
research work 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 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. 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 with
their thesis that they can no longer make changes. In addition to
stating how you will gain from participation, both you and your
advisor should be clear on what you can contribute to the Consortium.
