IUI 2008 : ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
Conference Series : Intelligent User Interfaces
Call For Papers
IUI 2008 will focus on **interface innovation**. We're most interested in truly new ideas about how people and computers could interact. If you've got a new idea about how to make interfaces smarter, easier to use, and more effective, we want to hear it!
We are inviting proposals and research papers in several categories:
Monday Oct 1 '07 Long and Short Papers
Monday Aug 27 '07 Workshop and Tutorial Proposals
Universitat Koblenz-Landau, Germany
Institute of Human and Machine Cognition, U.S.A.
Media Lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, U.S.A.

Why submit to IUI?
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, heuristics, and emerging technologies such
as natural language understanding or gesture recognition.
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 150-200 people), but small enough to avoid the
circus-like atmosphere of conferences with thousands of people. 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. As an ACM conference, papers
appear in the ACM Digital Library and citation indices. There will
also be a journal publication path for selected papers. It's a single
track conference, so you don't have to miss anything. And it's always
in a beautiful place, in January!
