The ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST) is a forum for innovations in human-computer interfaces. Sponsored by ACM special interest groups on computer-human interaction (SIGCHI) and computer graphics (SIGGRAPH), UIST brings together people from diverse areas including graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW.
The intimate size and intensive program make UIST an ideal opportunity to exchange research results and ideas.
TheUIST’s topics include, but are not limited to:
- Significantly novel enabling technologies such as innovative input devices, new interaction techniques, or new media that extend the boundaries of traditional interaction, such as natural user interfaces, augmented reality, mobile interaction, haptic and tactile interfaces, ubiquitous computing, wearable computers, social software, and computer-supported collaborative work.
- Novel interactive hardware prototypes, prototype fabrication methods or tools, or processes for creating user experiences that involve physical devices, sensors, prototypes, or systems.
- Innovative user interfaces for difficult interaction contexts or challenging applications. Examples include managing large and complex information sets, usable privacy and security, multi-user interaction, crowdsourcing, fabrication, or techniques that span devices distributed in time and space.
- Breakthrough user experiences leveraging techniques such as machine learning, computer vision, computer graphics, speech processing, networking, or human perception and cognition.
- Innovative software architectures, tools, toolkits, programming systems, development environments, tutorial and help systems that support the development and use of the above technologies in user interfaces.
Previous attendees included:
Jaime Teevan, Technical Advisor to Microsoft's CEO;
Selma Sabanovic, Associate Professor of Informatics and Cognitive Science at Indiana University, Bloomington; and many others...
