                   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
- Collaborative interfaces
- Education and learning-related technologies
- Evaluations of intelligent user interfaces
- Explainable intelligent user interfaces.
- Health and intelligent health technologies
- 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 **

Submission Due: Dec. 22nd (FRI), 2017
Notification to Authors: Jan. 14th (SUN), 2018
Camera Ready Due: Jan. 21st (SUN)

** Submission - Poster and Demo **

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 2 pages (including references). Accepted demo papers will be
presented as interactive demonstrations at IUI and published in the
companion proceedings of the conference.

Posters provide an opportunity for sharing valuable last-minute 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. Submitting a draft poster along with your
submission is not required but recommended. The page limit for poster
papers is 2 pages (including references). Accepted poster papers will
appear in the companion proceedings of the conference.

*Submission Instructions*
Demo and poster submissions do not need to be anonymized. The page limit is
2 pages (including references) in 2-column portrait ACM SIGCHI template (
http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). Submitting a draft
poster along with your poster submission is not required but recommended.

Submit your demos and posters at PCS 2.0:
