Local Information; Local Event

Thanks to our friends at the University of British Columbia, we're happy to provide a guide to local activities and restaurants.  Speaking of UBC -- there's still time to sign up for the optional Wednesday evening tour and demo reception on their campus.  Mingle with ICMI-PUI attendees and see a variety of HCI demos.

Ummm.  What is UIST again?
UIST  (pronounced "whist" like the card game) 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 user interfaces, virtual and augmented reality, multimedia, new input and 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.

UIST 2003 will be held together with ICMI-PUI, the Fifth International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces.  The two conferences will hold sessions together on Wednesday, November 5, and ICMI-PUI will continue on Thursday and Friday, November 6-7.  Register for both conferences and get a significant discount!  

the venue
UIST 2003 will be held in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, a city embraced by water, bridges, cruise ships, and ferries. A mere hour-and-a-half from world-class skiing at Whistler, Vancouver maintains a moderate climate year-round, inviting visitors to walk along the harbor, through Stanley Park, and among the many restaurants and shops with products from the Pacific Northwest and around the world. Vancouver's airport provides non-stop service to many major cities across Europe, Asia, and North America--indeed it is a global crossroads with a diversity of language and culture.
