Call for Participation

All submission deadlines are now passed

Demos

Peer-reviewed demonstrations show early implementations of novel, interesting, and important interface concepts and HCI systems. They can also serve to showcase commercial products not previously described in the research literature. Demos will be given in parallel at the opening reception.

Demos should be brief so that they can be shown repeatedly during the demonstration session. Demos with which people can interact are especially encouraged. Authors of accepted papers and TechNotes will also be invited to participate in the demo session. A Demo submission should be no more than two ACM conference pages in length, and accompanying videotape or digital video file should be at most four minutes long.

Accepted demos will be published together with posters in a booklet distributed to the conference attendees.

Demos chair : Johan Redström

Posters

Reviewed posters are a new category for UIST this year. Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present work to conference attendees during a special poster session. Posters provide an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than papers or TechNotes. Poster submissions should be in the form of a two-page paper in ACM format, describing the contents of the poster and its value to UIST attendees.

Accepted posters will be published together with demos in a booklet distributed to the conference attendees.

Posters co-chairs:
Matthew Chalmers and m.c. schraefel

Please see General Information below for further details on submissions. Demo and Poster submissions must be received no later than Friday, July 12, 2002.

Papers

Full-length papers (10 pages or 5000 words) are the main medium for conveying new research results at the UIST symposium. Submissions are sought that describe original, unpublished work on user interface devices, techniques or metaphors.

Appropriate topics include but are not limited to:

  • Novel, enabling technologies such as augmented reality, perceptual user interfaces, tactile user interfaces, multimedia interfaces, CSCW interfaces and unconventional input devices;
  • Innovative interfaces for difficult or challenging applications, such as the management of large, complex information sets;
  • Innovative software architectures and development environments that support the development and use of the above technologies and interfaces.

The submission of supplementary videos is encouraged. However, videos should be no more than five minutes in length. 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.

Accepted papers will be published together with accepted technotes in the UIST 2002 Proceedings, which are part of the CHI Letters series, and in the ACM Digital Library.

Technotes

Technique Notes ("technotes") offer an opportunity to disseminate important new interaction and visualization techniques that can be described concisely. This year, UIST is expanding the length of TechNotes to four pages, to provide authors more space in which to describe their techniques. Although shorter in length, UIST TechNotes are held to the same quality standards as full-length papers. Accepted TechNotes will be published in the proceedings and presented at the conference.

Typically, a TechNote 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. TechNotes should not include exhaustive implementation details or summaries of user studies.

A TechNote submission should be no more than four ACM conference pages in legnth, and any accompanying videotape or digital video file should be at most three minutes long. TechNotes undergo the same rigorous review process as regular papers.

Accepted technotes will be published together with accepted papers in the UIST 2002 Proceedings, which are part of the CHI Letters series, and in the ACM Digital Library.

Please see General Information below for further details on submissions. Paper and TechNote submissions must be received no later than Friday, April 5, 2002.

General Information

Accepted papers and TechNotes will be published in the UIST 2002 Conference Proceedings and the UIST 2002 Electronic Publication. 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 TechNote.

Accepted demos and posters will be published in a separate booklet that will be made available to the conference attendees.

We recommend that prospective authors consult the UIST 2002 Author's Guide. This document contains information on the reviewing process and a desccription of what constitutes an excellent UIST paper. The Author's Guide also describes the page format for paper submisssions.

This year, we are accepting both electronic submissions (in PDF format) and paper submissions, although electronic submissions are strongly preferred. To submit electronically, see the UIST Electronic Submission site. For details on the submission process, please consult the Author's Guide.

 

Videos of implementations are encouraged. This year, authors may submit a URL for a digital video file in lieu of a videotape (see the UIST Electronic Submission site for details). Authors of accepted papers and TechNotes will be invited to submit a video presentation for a video compendium that will be sold at the conference.

Although papers must stand on their own, submitted videos will be sent to reveiwers as supporting material. We refer authors preparing a videotape or video file for UIST to the UIST 2002 Video Guide. This guide describes how to produce an ideal video for UIST. Please do not be intimidated by the guide. Videos are viewed only as supporting material, and authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to prepare a more polished video presentation.
