IUI 2015: ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
Atlanta, GA, USA - March 29-April 1, 2015
IUI 2015 is the 20th annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community and serves as the principal international forum for reporting outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces.
IUI is where Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) meets the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. We're also very interested in contributions from related fields, such as psychology, behavioral science, cognitive science, computer graphics, design, the arts, etc.
Why submit to IUI?
At IUI our focus is to improve the interaction between machine intelligence and human intelligence – other conferences focus on one side or the other, whereas we address the complex interaction between the two. 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 are more willing to consider solutions that involve data mining, knowledge representation, novel interaction paradigms, and new emerging technologies.
The IUI conference brings together people from academia, industry, and nonprofits and gives you a chance to present and to see work results in an intimate, focused, and interactive event. It is large enough to be diverse and lively (we expect over 200 people), but small enough that you get a chance to talk to all the attendees, see all the posters, and take in all the presentations. As an ACM conference, papers appear in the ACM Digital Library and citation indices. There will also be a journal publication path for long papers. IUI is a single track conference, so you don't have to miss anything!

* User Input
- Processing of multi-modal input

- User studies concerning intelligent interfaces
- Evaluations of implemented intelligent user interfaces
* Full and Short Papers (* New Cooperation Model between TiiS and IUI *)
We invite original paper submissions that describe novel user interfaces, applications, interactive and intelligent technologies, empirical studies, or design techniques. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library. IUI 2015 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. Full papers (10 pages with unlimited references) should make substantial, novel and relevant contributions to the field. Short (4 pages with unlimited references) papers can either contain smaller contributions, novel ground-breaking ideas, or work in progress. Accepted full papers will be invited for oral presentation and short papers either as oral or poster presentation.
Authors of accepted IUI 2015 full papers will have an opportunity to submit extended versions to the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems (TiiS, http://tiis.acm.org) for consideration for a special issue titled "Highlights of IUI 2015". One of the IUI 2015 program chairs will serve as an associate editor who manages the reviewing for that special issue, and the reviewing schedule will ensure that it appears in the ACM Digital Library in early 2016, before IUI 2016. (For information on what counts as an appropriate "extension" of a conference paper for TiiS, see http://tiis.acm.org/for-authors.html#types-of-submission)
Abstracts Due: October 13, 2014
Full and Short Papers Due: October 17, 2014
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 page limit for poster papers is 4 pages. Accepted poster papers will appear in the companion proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.
Submissions Due: January 16, 2015
The demonstrations track 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. All submissions are intended to convey a scientific result or work in progress and should not be advertisements for commercial software packages. The page limit for demo papers is 4 pages. Accepted demo papers will be published in the companion proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.
Submissions Due: January 16, 2015
* Student Consortium
The IUI 2015 Student Consortium provides an opportunity for Masters and Doctoral students to present and receive feedback about their research 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 research 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 their research that they can no longer make changes.
Submissions Due: October 31, 2014
Workshops will be held on the first and last 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.
Workshop Proposals due: September 12, 2014
**** New Cooperation Agreement between the IUI Conference Series and ACM TiiS ****
The steering committee of the IUI conference series has agreed with the editors-in-chief of the ACM TiiS on the following forms of collaboration between the conference and the journal, which will be repeated in subsequent years:
1. Authors of accepted IUI 2015 full papers IUI 2015 full papers will have an opportunity to submit extended versions to the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems (TiiS, tiis.acm.org) for consideration for a special issue titled "Highlights of IUI 2015". One of the IUI 2015 program chairs will serve as an associate editor who manages the reviewing for that special issue, and the reviewing schedule will ensure that it appears in the ACM Digital Library in early 2016, before IUI 2016. (For information on what counts as an appropriate "extension" of a conference paper for TiiS, see http://tiis.acm.org/for-authors.html#types-of-submission ).
2. The authors of any TiiS article that has been accepted during the year 2014 (and that does not represent an extension of a paper presented at an earlier IUI conference) will have an opportunity to present their work at IUI 2015 in a presentation slot at least as long as that for an IUI 2015 short paper.
