IUI 2014 is the 19th 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 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.
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 2014 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 should make substantial, novel and relevant contributions to the field. Short 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 paper either as oral or poster presentation.
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 industrial track represents an opportunity for the companies in the field to present their late works (as posters or interactive demos) and receive valuable feedback from the research community. It also provides an opportunity for recruitment and for networking. The industry track will not be peer-reviewed but their relevance for the field will be judged by a jury.
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.
The IUI 2014 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.
