Following the tradition of previous years, we will offer student participation support provided by SIGAI and the NSF to attend the IUI Conference. This support is in the form of a small stipend to cover registration fee and partially cover the costs of travel and living expenses while attending the conference. The students will be reimbursed for their expenses after the conference.
The objective of IUI's student support is to encourage students interested in subjects related to Intelligent User Interfaces to become active members of the IUI community. To apply, the student should be actively enrolled as a student in an academic institution. Priority will be given to students who are first authors of accepted papers and to participants in the doctoral consortium. Recipients of the stipend are also expected to help the conference organization as student volunteers. The level of support will be determined by the availability of funds and the number of eligible applications.The application should include:
Please email your application to the Student Awards Co-Chairs at email@example.com.

There are many ways to travel from the airport to Loews Hotel and back thanks to Atlanta's convenient public transportation system. The most affordable way to get to the conference venue is to take MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority). After arriving at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, you can take either the red or the gold line at the MARTA station inside the airport going towards northbound, and get off at midtown station. After that, you can go toward 10th St NE, heading east, then left onto Peachtree St NE. Loews hotel will be only a block away from that point. MARTA's route and schedule information can be found here.
Taxi is another convenient way of getting from the airport to the conference venue. Going to midtown area from the airport is about $34. More information about Atlanta checker cab rate can be found here.
Atlanta gleams amid glass and steel towers, but the heart of the South’s largest city is its people. Visitors are likely to be greeted with a big helping of “How y’all doing” hospitality. Atlanta may have birthed “Gone with the Wind,” yet today’s big, bustling city is more New South than old. This diverse population of 4 million residents is decidedly youthful – younger than the U.S. population and more racially diverse. You’re more than likely to meet people who came for a weekend and decided to stay a lifetime.
Atlanta began as a railroad terminus. It’s still a transportation hub, but with a 21st-century, global approach. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the busiest airport in the world with direct, nonstop service to more than 155 U.S. destinations – 80 percent of those within a two-hour flight – and more than 75 international destinations in 50 countries. With MARTA located inside the airport, visitors can roll into town without a car.
Centennial Olympic Park, the heart of Downtown’s tourist hub, is marked by playful fountains that draw visitors to its core. Attractions abound at Pemberton Place with the popular Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, and opening this year, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. Sports fans congregate here to visit the College Football Hall of Fame, opening Labor Day weekend, and to ”Rise Up” for the NFL Falcons at the Georgia Dome, NBA Hawks and WNBA Dream at Philips Arena, and the MLB Braves at Turner Field.
The city’s rich history comes to life in Sweet Auburn, once the richest black community in America. The area is a mecca for civil rights travelers visiting the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site and Ebenezer Baptist Church.
In Atlanta, chef-run restaurants dish up modern American cuisine in strikingly beautiful spaces. Among the cutting edge eateries are plenty of cozy diners, cafés and bistros. The ethnic mom-and-pop restaurants along Buford Highway offer menus with little English and lots of flavor.
Beyond the city’s core, Atlanta’s neighborhoods are packed with personality. Midtown melds in-town glitz with the culture. The Westside has become a magnet for foodies, design enthusiasts and shoppers. Buckhead blends boutiques and galleries with fabulous dining, while Little Five Points lives on the edge of bohemian grunge paired with solid live theatre and music scenes.
Culture permeates throughout Atlanta. Emerging artists and designers pepper the city’s galleries and boutiques. For high-brow options, our city boasts an award-winning symphony, opera, and ballet. We host nationally-acclaimed touring shows and world-class exhibitions. And visitors can catch our homegrown talent at our numerous local playhouses, theatres, and neighborhood music venues.
It’s easy to fall in love with this charming metropolis that offers something for every traveler.
