Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality papers about research to enhance
user-interface functionality or to improve the user-interface development process.
Appropriate topics include but are not limited to:
Videotapes of implementations are encouraged. We are exploring the possibility of
including video with the conference proceedings. However, papers must stand on their
own and will be reviewed independently from submitted videotapes.
- Techniques for advanced interaction functionality, such as multimedia,
virtual worlds, innovative displays, unconventional input devices, and highly
interactive user interfaces.
- Innovative software architectures for developing user interfaces,
including those associated with user-interface management systems, window systems,
toolkits, and knowledge-based user interfaces.
- Tools and techniques for designing, constructing, and evaluating user
interfaces, including automated tools and object-oriented techniques.
- User interfaces with special operating system requirements, such as real-time,
multi-user, multi-input, multi-threaded, and distributed interfaces.
- User interfaces for difficult or challenging applications, such as large and/or
complex information sets.
- User interfaces for people with special needs.
- The internationalization of the user interface.
Submissions must present original research relevant to the symposium. Papers should
be at most 5000 words or 10 ACM conference pages in length. Videotapes should be at
most 8 minutes long. The submission should consist of 6 copies of a paper, 2 copies
of an NTSC VHS videotape (if there is one), and a cover letter indicating the primary
author's name, affiliation, address, phone number and email address (if at all possible).
The title page should include an abstract (fewer than 200 words) and keywords.
The cover letter should also indicate whether the submitted video can be part of
the proceedings. Contact the program chair for an author's packet.
Submissions must be received by the program chair no later than
April 18, 1994. FAX cannot be used for submission. Authors will be
notified of acceptance by June 30, 1994.
