Long and Short Papers

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. ACM IUI 2015 especially encourages submissions on innovative and visionary new concepts or directions for interface design. We do not require evaluations with users, but we expect papers to include appropriate evaluation for their stated contributions.

Long papers should make substantial, novel and relevant contributions to the field.
Page length: no more than 10 pages of contents, anonymized, with additional unlimited pages of references. (e.g., 10 pages, with additional 2 pages with only references.)

Short papers may present focused contributions, ideas, and work in progress.
Page length: no more than 4 pages of contents, anonymized, with additional unlimited pages of references. (e.g., 4 pages, with additional 1 page with only references.)

Accepted long papers will be invited for oral presentation and short papers either as oral or poster presentation.

Authors of accepted ACM IUI 2015 long papers will have an opportunity to submit extended versions to the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems (TiiS, tiis.acm.org) for consideration for a special issue titled "Highlights of ACM IUI 2015". An ACM IUI 2015 program chair will serve as an associate editor to manage the reviewing for that special issue, and the reviewing schedule will ensure that it appears in the ACM Digital Library in early 2016, before ACM IUI 2016. (For information on what counts as an appropriate "extension" of a conference paper for TiiS, see here).

Submission Guideline

IUI 2015 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.

  • Focus: Unlike traditional AI, our focus is not so much to make the computer smart all by itself, but to make the interaction between computers and people smarter. Unlike traditional HCI, we do not require in-depth studies with users to motivate or prove the effectiveness of the research. Evaluations need only be appropriate to the type of contribution claimed.
  • Format: Long papers and short papers should be formatted using the standard HCI Archive Format
  • Reviewing and rebuttal process: Each paper will be reviewed by three reviewers. Authors will have the opportunity to submit a rebuttal. A senior PC member will be asked to write a review prior to the committee meeting taking into account the rebuttal.
  • 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. 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. Do not exclude citations to relevant work simply because they are self-citations or “blind” self-citations by removing the text of the reference from the references section.
    3. Remove or anonymize acknowledgments.
    Failure to follow these guidelines may result in papers being rejected without review.
  • Videos: Submission of a video accompanying your paper is optional, but highly encouraged. Note that the maximum file size for submitted videos is 50MB.

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.)
