Accepted Papers


ACM IUI 2016 is the 21st 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 a multidisciplinary field where Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) meets Artificial Intelligence (AI), with contributions from related fields such as cognitive science, computer graphics, psychology, behavioural science, design, 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.

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 an focused and interactive setting. It is large enough to be diverse and lively (we expect over 200 people), 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.
Submission site:

Authors of accepted IUI 2016 full papers will have an opportunity to submit extended versions to the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems (TiiS, for consideration for a special issue titled "Highlights of IUI 2016". For information on what counts as an appropriate "extension" of a conference paper for TiiS, see submissions)

IUI topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Processing of multi-modal input (gestures, eye gaze, face, physiological information etc.)
  • Natural language and speech processing
  • Intelligent visualization tools
  • Generation of multimodal content
  • Big Data/Text summarization and analytics
  • Intelligent interfaces for ubiquitous computing
  • Smart environments and tangible computing
  • Smart interaction and interfaces for wearable computing
  • Intelligent assistants for complex tasks
  • Support for collaboration in multiuser environments
  • Persuasive and assistive technologies in IUI
  • Affective, social and aesthetic interfaces
  • Education and learning-related technologies
  • User-Adaptive interaction
  • Recommender systems
  • Modelling and prediction of user behaviour
  • Interactive Machine Learning
  • Planning and plan recognition for IUI
  • Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design and generation
  • Proactive and agent-based paradigms for user interaction
  • Example-and demonstration-based interfaces
  • Evaluations of intelligent user interfaces

Submission - Long and Short Papers

We invite original paper submissions that describe novel user interfaces, applications, interactive and intelligent technologies, empirical studies, or design techniques. IUI 2016 especially encourages submissions on innovative and visionary new concepts or directions for the design of intelligent interfaces. We do not require evaluations with users, but we do expect papers to include an appropriate evaluation for their stated contribution.
Accepted papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library and citation indices.

Submission Guideline
  • Full papers (10 pages, anonymized, with unlimited references) should make substantial, novel and relevant contributions to the field.
  • Short papers (4 pages, anonymized, with unlimited references) can either contain smaller contributions or novel work that is still progress.
  • Anonymization: All papers must be appropriately anonymized according to the following guidelines:
    1. Author's names and affiliations are not present in the paper.
    2. Remove or anonymize acknowledgments.
    3. 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 "... Smith et al. [2] show that" is acceptable.
    4. Do not exclude citations to relevant work simply because they are self-citations.
    5. Do not “blind” self-citations by removing the text of the reference from the references section.
    Failure to follow these guidelines may result in papers being rejected without review.

Accepted full papers will be invited for oral presentation and short papers either as oral or poster presentation. Your paper should follow the standard SigCHI format. Use either the Microsoft Word template or the LaTeX template.


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.)
