Call for Papers

CFP IUI 2023

ACM Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (ACM IUI) 2023 is the 28th annual premiere venue, where researchers and practitioners will meet and discuss state-of-the-art advances at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Ideal IUI submissions should address practical HCI challenges using machine intelligence and discuss both computational and human-centric aspects of such methodologies, techniques, and systems.

The theme for this year will be Resilience, covering a wide variety of topics, such as COVID-19 recovery, organizational cyber resilience, economic growth and stability, climate change recovery, intelligent user interface resilience, and similars. While we encourage submissions related to this theme, the scope of the conference is not limited to the theme only.

As always, contributions to IUI are expected to be supported by rigorous evidence appropriate to the claims (e.g., user study, system evaluation, computational analysis). Contributions are welcome from all relevant arenas, including academia, industry, government, and non-profit organizations. We strongly believe that diverse insights are critical to the vitality of the IUI community and the conference will accept papers for both long and short oral presentations.

Papers

We invite original paper submissions that are not under consideration elsewhere. This year, there is no page limit on the papers (however, we strongly encourage authors to not exceed 10,000 words) and no formal distinction between long and short papers will be made. However, we expect the paper length to be commensurate with the scientific values and contribution of the work.

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, https://tiis.acm.org) special issue titled "Highlights of IUI 2023" that will appear in 2024.

All accepted papers will be invited for oral presentation as part of the main conference program.

Highlights of this year

We encourage authors to critically consider practical implications and shortcomings of their work, in particular how the proposed methods and insights could be applied and deployed in a realistic setting and how they can improve people’s lives in the real world.

We also encourage authors to discuss potential ethical considerations of their work; aspects pertaining to current societal issues; diversity, inclusion, and equality; and other topics under the broad responsible AI topic.

Submission instructions

Important Dates

  • Abstract submission- Oct 7th, 2022
  • Full Submission - Oct 14th, 2022
  • Review released - Dec 9th, 2022
  • Rebuttal period (by invitation only)- Dec 9th-16th, 2022
  • Notifications sent - Dec 30th, 2022
  • Camera Ready submission - Feb 3rd, 2023

Platform

All materials must be submitted electronically to PCS 2.0 by the abstract and paper deadline.

In PCS 2.0, first click "Submissions" at the top of the page, from the dropdown menus for society, conference, and track select "SIGCHI", "IUI 2023" and "IUI 2023 Papers", respectively, and press "Go".

Note that not all the papers, but only a small number with borderline scores or conflicting reviews, will be invited to submit rebuttals.

Anonymization

ACM IUI uses a double-blind review process. All submissions (and supplemental materials) must be appropriately anonymized according to the following guidelines:

  • Authors’ names and affiliations should not be visible anywhere in the paper.
  • Acknowledgements should be anonymized or removed for the review process.
  • 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, while "as shown in Smith et al. [2]" is acceptable (in this case the citation [2] does NOT break anonymization).
  • Logos and other organizational affiliations in images should be blurred.

Failure to follow these guidelines may result in submissions being desk rejected without review.

Authors should also be aware of the SIGCHI Policy for Submission and Review at SIGCHI Conferences.

Accessibility

Authors are asked to make their submissions accessible (so that reviewers with vision impairments can access them, for example). The authors of accepted papers will be required to make their final PDFs accessible. Please use the SIGCHI Guide to an Accessible Submission

If you submit a video as supplemental material, please provide captions, as described in Technical Requirements and Guidelines for Videos in a single column format. The paper should be anonymized and have line numbers on the left side of each page for review.

Please refer to the Accessibilitypage for further details and guidelines.

Submission format and length

We will adopt the ACM TAPS Workflow

Prepare your submission for review in a single-column format, using the latest templates: Word Submission Template or the Latex Template using \documentclass[manuscript,review,anonymous]{acmart} for the LaTeX template.

Papers are of a variable length, although the paper length must reflect the scientific contribution of the work. That said, we encourage authors to stay within the 10,000 word limit.

Supplemental materials

Submitting supplemental material (e.g., questionnaires, demo videos, or data sheets) is optional but encouraged.

If supplying a demo video, please follow the SIGCHI Technical Requirements and Guidelines for Videos.

Additional Policies

As a published ACM author, you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM's new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects.
