General Information

UIST (ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology) is the premier forum for innovations in the software and technology of human-computer interfaces. Sponsored by ACM's special interest groups on computer-human interaction (SIGCHI) and computer graphics (SIGGRAPH), UIST brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse areas that include traditional graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW. The intimate size, the single track, and comfortable surroundings make this symposium an ideal opportunity to exchange research results and implementation experiences.

Accepted papers and tech notes will be published in the UIST 2009 Conference Proceedings and the UIST 2009 DVD Proceedings, and will be included in the ACM Digital Library. The primary author of each accepted paper or technote will receive an Author Kit with detailed instructions on how to submit a final, publication-ready version of the paper or tech note. Accepted demos and posters will be published in a separate booklet that will be made available to the conference attendees and in the DVD proceedings.

We recommend that prospective authors consult the UIST 2009 Author's Guide. This document contains information on the reviewing process and a description of what constitutes an excellent UIST contribution, including the page format for all submissions. Note that submissions are anonymous!

We only accept electronic submissions. To submit, see the UIST Electronic Submission site (http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi).

Videos accompanying submissions should be submitted through the UIST Electronic Submission Site. Although papers tech notes must stand on their own, submitted videos will be sent to reviewers as supporting material. We refer authors preparing a video for UIST to the Video Guide. Please do not be intimidated by the guide. Videos are viewed only as supporting material, and authors of accepted papers and tech notes will have the opportunity to prepare a more polished final video presentation for inclusion in the DVD proceedings and as supplemental material in the ACM Digital Library.

When submitting your video for review, please encode your video in a format that works across as many platforms as possible without the installation of additional codecs (i.e., it is best if your video will play on vanilla versions of Windows Media Player and/or Quicktime player). Please note that the total aggregate size for a submission cannot exceed 50 MBytes (including all documents and additional material).

 

Papers

Deadline: Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Full-length papers (up to 10 pages) are the main medium for conveying new research results at UIST. Submissions are sought that describe original, unpublished work on user interface devices, techniques, applications, or metaphors. For the first time, UIST'09 will adopt an anonymous submission process (similar to CHI) for paper submissions. Please consult the UIST 2009 Author's Guide for information on paper format and UIST's policies on previous and simultaneous publications.

Appropriate topics include but are not limited to:

    * Novel enabling technologies such as innovative input devices, displays, new interaction techniques, or new media that extend the boundaries of traditional interaction, such as perceptual user interfaces, augmented reality, ubiquitous computing, and computer-supported collaborative work;
    * Innovative user interfaces for difficult interaction contexts or challenging applications, such as the management of large, complex information sets, multi-user interaction, or techniques that span devices distributed in time and space;
    * Novel application of techniques from disciplines such as machine learning, computer vision, computer graphics, speech processing, networking, or human perception and cognition, that contribute to user interaction techniques;
    * Innovative software architectures, toolkits, and development environments that support the development and use of the above technologies in user interfaces. 

The submission of supplementary videos is encouraged. However, videos should be no more than five minutes in length and 50MB in size. See the video guide and the general information above for details. Rigorous reviewing is a UIST hallmark: each paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee and three external reviewers. Authors of accepted papers will also be invited to participate in the demo session.

All papers should be submitted electronically to http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi.

Relevant dates:

May 18 - 21, 2009: Authors will have the opportunity to provide a rebuttal to reviewer comments

June 09, 2009: Authors will be notified of the committee's decision. All acceptances will be conditional pending changes that the papers committee may suggest or require for the final camera-ready draft of the paper. This means that your paper will not be formally accepted to UIST until you revise it and submit a final draft for approval by the program committee.

June 26, 2009: Authors submit revised conditionally accepted papers to committee for final review.

July 10, 2009: Final camera ready papers due.

Program Chair:
François Guimbretière (francois[at]cs.cornell.edu), Cornell University

 

Tech Notes

Deadline: Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Tech notes provide a forum for disseminating new interaction techniques. UIST tech notes are rigorously peer-reviewed, shorter, and more focused submissions that bring new techniques to the research and practice community. The combination of text, pictures, videos, and live presentation help these techniques get rapid feedback and early adoption. For the first time, UIST'09 will be a adopt an Anonymous submission process (similar to CHI) for tech notes submissions.Please consult the UIST 2009 Author's Guide for information on paper format and UIST's policies on previous and simultaneous publications.

Typically, a tech note is a succinct description, possibly including screen dumps and accompanying video, of a novel user interface technique with sufficient detail to assist an expert reader in replicating the technique. Tech notes generally should not include exhaustive implementation details or user studies.

A tech note submission should be no more than four ACM conference pages in length, and any accompanying digital video file should be at most 50MB in size. See the video guide and the general information above for details. Tech notes undergo the same rigorous review process as regular papers.

All tech notes should be submitted electronically to http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi.

Relevant dates:

May 18 - 21, 2009: Authors will have the opportunity to provide a rebuttal to reviewer comments

June 09, 2009: Authors will be notified of the committee's decision. All acceptances will be conditional pending changes that the papers committee may suggest or require for the final camera-ready draft of the paper. This means that your paper will not be formally accepted to UIST until you revise it and submit a final draft for approval by the program committee.

June 26, 2009: Authors submit revised conditionally accepted papers to committee for final review.

July 10, 2009: Final camera ready papers due.

Posters

Deadline: TBD

Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present work to conference attendees during special poster sessions. Posters provide an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than papers or tech notes.

A poster submission should be in the form of a two-page paper in UIST format, describing the research problem, contribution, and value to UIST attendees. In addition to the two-page paper, poster submissions require submitting a sketch of the poster itself. Both the paper and poster should be submitted as PDF files. Authors may also include a video (optional). Video files should be at most three minutes long and 30MB in size.

See the video guide and the general submission information for more details about preparing your submission.

Before designing your poster, we also recommend checking out the UIST 2005 Poster Example Gallery.

Accepted poster abstracts will be published together with demos in both a booklet and a DVD distributed to the conference attendees. Posters and videos may also be published in the DVD, at the authors' discretion. Poster abstracts and previews should be submitted electronically to Precision Conference.

Posters will be displayed on corkboards during conference break periods. We expect to be able to accommodate posters of up to 3 feet by 4 feet (either vertical or horizontal), so we suggest using that size or smaller for your prototype. In addition, poster authors are expected to give a 40-second presentation of their work at the conference as part of the “UIST madness” session.

Authors will be notified of poster results on or before Friday, August 8, 2009. Final versions will be due Friday, September 5, 2009.
