UIST 2014 Submission Deadlines (5PM PDT)

***********************************************************
General Information
Accepted papers will be published in the UIST 2014 Conference Proceedings and the UIST 2014 Video Proceedings, and will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
We recommend that prospective authors consult the UIST 2014 CfP and UIST 2014 Author's Guide for more detailed instructions.
We only accept electronic submissions. To submit, see the UIST Electronic Submission site (http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi).

Papers (Deadline: Friday April 16, 2014)
Papers are the main medium for conveying new research results at UIST. Submissions are sought that describe original, unpublished work on user interface interaction techniques, services, devices, applications, or metaphors. Please consult the UIST 2014 Author's Guide for information on submission format and policies for previous and simultaneous publications. Note that paper submissions must be anonymous! Authors must remove their names and affiliations from the masthead and refer to their own previous work in third person when possible. See the anonymization policy for more information.
Authors of all accepted papers will also be invited and encouraged to participate in the demo session. All papers should be submitted electronically to:http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi.
Paper Length: Papers are of variable length. Paper length must be based on the weight of the contribution. A new idea presented in a compact format is more likely to be accepted than the same idea in a long format. Exceptionally long papers (more than 10 pages) need to include very strong contributions to warrant acceptance. Shorter, more focused papers (called Tech Notes in years prior to 2011) are highly encouraged. Papers with length disproportionate to their contribution will be rejected, for example, user studies that are not integral to the paper contribution and deemed unnecessary by the reviewers would more likely lead to paper rejection than acceptance. In exceptional cases the authors will be requested to shorten papers in the camera ready.
Presentation time during the conference will be allocated according to the weight of contribution. Papers that are 6 or fewer pages will have shorter presentation times than longer papers at the conference (also see discussion on paper length in the above section). However, there will be no distinction made between papers in the program, proceedings or digital library. Exact talk duration will be determined when the program is finalized.
Videos: The submission of supplementary videos is highly encouraged. Especially in cases of interactive systems, videos play a crucial role in convincing the reviewers that the system presented works and works well. Videos should be no more than five minutes long and the total size of your submission (including the paper) is limited to 100MB. See the video guide for details.
Reviewing and rebuttal process: Rigorous reviewing is a UIST hallmark. Each paper will be fully reviewed by 3 external reviewers (experts in the area that are not on the committee). Primary reviewers (from the papers committee) will write meta reviews for all papers. Full reviews will be provided when necessary. On June 23, 2014, authors will be notified of their review results. If reviews fall below the auto-rejection threshold the paper will be rejected at this stage, otherwise, the authors will have the opportunity to submit a rebuttal. Secondary reviewers (from the papers committee) will then write meta reviews for all remaining papers.
Relevant dates:
  • April 16, 2014: Papers due by 17:00 PDT.
  • June 4, 2014: Auto-rejected papers will get notified.
  • June 4-11, 2014: Authors will have the opportunity to provide a rebuttal.
  • June 23, 2014: Authors will be notified if papers are conditionally accepted or rejected.
All acceptances will be conditional pending changes that the papers committee may suggest or require for the final camera-ready draft. This means that a paper will not be accepted to UIST until authors revise and submit the final draft for approval by the program committee. The length of the camera-ready copy must be less or equal to the length of the original submission unless there is a strong justification for increasing the paper length, which should be agreed upon by the author's primary reviewer. In exceptional cases, the committee may accept a paper on condition that the paper will be shortened.
  • July 7, 2014: 17:00 PDT Authors submit revised conditionally accepted papers to committee for final review.
  • July 9, 2014: Authors will be notified of the final decision.
  • July 14, 2014: Final camera ready due.
Program Chairs: (program@uist.org) Mira Dontcheva (Adobe Research), Daniel Wigdor (University of Toronto)

Posters (Deadline: July 2, 2014)
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.
All poster submissions must include a two-page poster abstract and a full size poster design, both in PDF format. Unlike paper submissions, poster submissions are not anonymous. The two-page abstract describes the research problem, contribution, and value to UIST attendees. The abstract must be formatted like a two-page technical paper using the SIGCHI Papers Word or Latex Template. The poster design should be 24 inches by 36 inches (either portrait or landscape). The UIST 2005 Poster Example Gallery has ideas and guidelines for great poster designs. Authors are also encouraged to submit an optional short video, less than 50MB in size and no more than three minutes long.
The poster abstract, poster design, and optional video must be submitted electronically to Precision Conference before the due date below. The total size for all files in the submission must be less than 100MB. See the video guide, the author guide, and general submission information for more details about preparing your submission.
All accepted posters will be displayed during a portion of the conference, and at least one author is requested to stand by their poster during poster sessions and give interactive presentations to conference attendees. Accepted poster abstracts will be published together with demonstration and doctoral symposium abstracts in digital form and distributed to conference attendees. Posters and videos may also be published at the authors' discretion.
Please do not submit the same work to both the demo and poster tracks. Double submissions will only be considered as a demo submission and will be automatically rejected from the poster track.
Relevant dates:
  • July 2: Submissions due by 17:00 PDT.
  • August 6: Notification of acceptance decisions.
  • August 16: Camera ready versions due.
Posters Chairs: (posters@uist.org) Géry Casiez, University of Lille & Inria, France; Daniel Vogel, University of Waterloo, Canada

Demonstrations (Deadline: July 2, 2014)
Peer-reviewed demonstrations show early implementations of novel, interesting, and important interaction concepts or user interface systems. They can also serve to showcase commercial products not previously described in the research literature. Demonstrations should be brief, so that they can be shown repeatedly. We particularly encourage demos with which attendees can interact.
Accepted demonstration abstracts will be published together with posters and doctoral symposium abstracts and made available digitally to conference attendees. UIST will showcase accepted demos at the evening demo reception. We will also invite authors of accepted papers to present their work at the demo reception.
A demo submission should follow the official SIGCHI conference publication paper format, and should be no more than two pages in length. Note that demo submission, unlike paper submission, is not anonymous.
Note: the demo submission includes a (mock-up) photo of the demonstration showing the envisioned setup (demo hardware components, tables, chairs, lights and other equipment), as well as the demonstrators alongside conference attendees interacting with the demo. Please label and annotate all parts of the image(s) so that reviewers and organizers get a good understanding of your setup. Conference organizers will also better be able to consider your requirements when organizing the demonstration space at the conference. Submitting an accompanying video is optional, but highly encouraged. Any submitted video should be no longer than three minutes and at most 50MB in size.
Demos are non-archival: UIST demos are non-archival and UIST allows resubmission of demos previously shown at other venues. Authors should state previous demo venues in the appropriate box in the upload form and point out differences to previous demos.
See the video guide and the general submission information for more details about preparing your submission.
Both the demo abstract and the optional digital video should be submitted electronically to Precision Conference.
Relevant dates:
  • July 2: Submissions due by 17:00 PDT.
  • August 6: Notification of acceptance decisions.
  • August 16: Camera ready versions due.
Demonstration Chairs: (demos@uist.org) Per Ola Kristensson, University of St Andrews, UK; Nicolai Marquardt, University College London, UK

Doctoral Symposium (Deadline: July 2, 2014)
The UIST Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced UIST researchers in an informal and interactive setting. We welcome applications from current Ph.D. students studying within the full range of disciplines and approaches that contribute to the UIST community. We will give preference to applicants beyond the proposal stage and well into their dissertation research.
Each applicant should provide a short written paper (no more than four pages in the official SIGCHI conference publication format, as described in theauthors' guide). Note that doctoral symposium submission, unlike paper submission, is not anonymous. This paper should describe ongoing work and might summarize the student's full dissertation work, or highlight a particular part in depth.
The Doctoral Symposium committee will select approximately eight students to participate. Each student will be expected to give a short presentation of their work, which will be followed by extensive discussion with the panel and the other student participants. The symposium will be held on October 5th. In addition, each student is encouraged to present a poster describing his or her work to the full conference; posters will be on display during conference on October 7th and 8th.
Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the symposium.
The symposium will start with an informal dinner on October 4th, continue all the following day, and conclude with poster presentations. Doctoral Symposium abstracts will be published together with poster and demonstration abstracts and made available digitally to conference attendees. Posters may also be published at the participant's discretion. A travel stipend and free registration to the UIST conference will be provided to each participant.
Doctoral Symposium papers and poster sketches should be submitted electronically to Precision Conference.
Relevant dates:
  • July 2: Submissions due by 17:00 PDT.
  • August 6: Notification of acceptance decisions.

INTERACCION 2014: Special Track “EnGendering Technologies”


XV International Conference on Human Computer Interaction

10-12 September, 2014
Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, España

Special Track “EnGendering Technologies”



Presentation

The growing power of Technology has been shaping our global societies, our lives and relationships in the last decades. At the same time, we must not forget that the values, roles and stereotypes in our societies also contribute to shape the way we use and produce technologies. We need to approach this bidirectional influence from a gender perspective capable of understanding and measuring it. There is a large body of research from a variety of disciplines on female under-representation in science and technologies, which also cares about “gender blindness” on technological design. Its results suggest that the problem is a complex one, plagued with dilemmas and paradoxes.

Under-representation in ICT, gender roles and stereotypes as mechanisms of exclusion and social reproduction, gender asymmetries in career trajectories of women and men, cultures in technological design as well as the rights of women in Internet are some of the many issues which show the urgent need to tackle the analysis of these technological factors and to re-dimension their global consequences on women's lives.

Women have made tremendous progress in education and the workplace during the past 50 years. Even in historically male fields such as business, law, and medicine, women have made impressive gains. In scientific areas, however, women’s educational gains have been less dramatic, and their progress in the workplace moves at a slow pace. In an era when women are increasingly prominent in medicine, law, and business, why are so few women becoming scientists and engineers?

EnGendering technologies means promoting egalitarian participation in education, design, production and use of technologies, especially in ICT, but also demanding innovative and more inclusive thinking, process and products. Technology and society conform each other: symbolic and cultural meanings guide the process of constructing technologies and in reverse they delineate new cultural images and practices. Values, social relations, and world visions become inscribed in technologies, and shape and maintain gender ideologies and identities, reproducing the idea that women are strange to the world of technology, which is historically false. Changing the discourses and practices and values in the process of design and educational system should be the key to redefine the traditional gendered relations with technology. The aim is to achieve better ICT as practices and products in order to promote positive gender impact.

Human agency, users and designers, occupy now the center of the stage to promote a technological and cultural change, and women must participate in that conforming process. New insights speak about socio-technical design, a view in which the new user of ICT is the community. Gendering that creative process means participating in the design of a better common future.

Organizers
Aaron Quigley (University of St. Andrews, United Kingdom), Victor Penichet Victor (University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain), Harald Reiterer (University of Konstanz, Germany)


DescriptionAdvanced visual interface display ecosystems are physical environments, rooms or ad-hoc settings for co-located collaborative work that are augmented or supplemented with ubiquitous computing technology. However, there are significant challenges in the research, design, development and deployment of these types of ecosystem. The purpose of this research road-mapping workshop is threefold. Firstly, we aim to consolidate information, technical details and research directions from the diverse range of academic and industrial projects currently available. Secondly, based on visions of future ecosystems we will identify gaps in the current state of the art. And thirdly, we will identify new areas of research which require funding and support along with new areas for collaboration outside.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners who are avid to contribute to and aid in the development of a research roadmap. This roadmap can be used to inform, influence and disseminate ideas to funders, the wider research community and the general public. Based on submitted position papers and existing research it will describe the current baseline of display ecosystems and what research gaps need to be filled to allow us to achieve our research and developments ambitions.

 

If you only want to attend the workshop and not the whole conference this would be possible!

CFP ICWE centrando la atención en el track HCI


http://icwe2014.webengineering.org/hci-and-the-web/

Most Web applications are conceived as interactive systems that aim at communicating with users. Users do not only consume information via the Web, but can also play an active role by contributing content (e.g., Web 2.0), get involved in the development process of Web applications (e.g., agile and user-centered design processes) and even conceive their own components by interacting with specialized tools (e.g., end-user development tools). In this context, there are many user roles involved in the socio-technical environment encompassing the development of Web applications.

The aim of this track is to study user interface software and technologies that improve the relationship between users and Web applications. We welcome contributions that investigate solutions able to improve usability, accessibility, and user experience with Web applications, as well as user-centered design approaches that describe how Web technology and innovative design solutions can help users to better accomplish their tasks over the Web.
