                   Call for Papers: ACM IUI 2018
                                to be held in
              Tokyo, Japan, 7th-11th March 2018

ACM IUI 2018 is the 23rd annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces
community and serves as a premier international forum for reporting
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces. In
2018, IUI will be held in the Hitotsubashi Hall in central Tokyo Japan from
March 7th - 11th and will co-locate with the Japanese IPSJ Interactions

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. Along with
25 other topics in AI & HCI, this year we especially encourage submissions
on explainable intelligent user interfaces for IUI 2018.

** 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
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.

- IUI topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Affective and aesthetic interfaces
- Big Data and analytics

- Information retrieval and search
- Intelligent assistants for complex tasks
- Intelligent wearable and mobile interfaces
- Intelligent ubiquitous user interfaces
- Intelligent visualization tools
- Interactive machine learning
- Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design and generation
- Modeling and prediction of user behavior
- Multi-modal interfaces (speech, gestures, eye gaze, face, physiological
information etc.)
- Natural language and speech processing
- Persuasive and assistive technologies in IUI
- Planning and plan recognition for IUI
- Proactive and agent-based user interaction
- Recommender systems
- Smart environments and tangible computing
- Social media analysis
- User Modelling for Intelligent Interfaces
- User-Adaptive interaction and personalization

** Dates **

1st Oct, 2017: Abstract deadline (compulsory)
8th Oct, 2017: Papers deadline
7th Dec, 2017: Notification
21st Dec, 2017: Camera ready due
7th Mar, 2018: Conference starts

** 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. We do not require evaluations with users, but we do
expect papers to include an appropriate evaluation for their stated

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 2018".

** Submission Guidelines **

- Full paper (anonymized 10 pages, references do not count toward the page
limit) should make substantial, novel, and relevant contribution to the
- 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
-- Author’s names and affiliations are not visible anywhere in the paper.
-- Acknowledgements should be anonymized or removed during the review
-- 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
- Failure to follow these guidelines may result in submissions being
rejected without review.
- Authors should also be aware of the SIGCHI Policy for Submission and
Review at SIGCHI Conferences, see: http://www.sigchi.org/
- Submissions should follow the standard SigCHI format. Use either the
Microsoft Word template (http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform/
sigchi-paper-format-2016/view) 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 nature and quality of the paper.


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.)
