2006 International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2006)
CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Sydney, Australia
January 29, 2006 to February 1, 2006 (Workshops: January 29, 2006)
http://www.iuiconf.org/

IUI 2006 is the annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community
and serves as the principal international forum for reporting
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces.
The purpose of a workshop is to provide an informal forum where
practitioners and researchers can discuss their current work and
issues of common interest.  The formats of the workshops will be
determined by their organizers, who are encouraged to foster
discussion and exchange of ideas by including mechanisms other than
traditional paper presentations.

Possible foci of workshops may include:
- principles/emerging areas/concerns/applications of intelligent
    interfaces and their applications in the field of human-computer
    interaction and artificial intelligence
- methodologies, applications, and evaluation
- tools, design environments, and related infrastructure that assist
    designers and developers in the user interface development life cycle

Workshops are intended to last a half day or a full day. They will be
held on Sunday, 29 January 2006, just before the technical sessions.

Submission Format

Each proposal should contain the following information:

1. A cover page including:
     - Workshop title
     - Name, affiliation, postal address, and e-mail address for each
       organizer
     - Identification of the primary contact person(s)

2. Background and Motivation: What is the overall topic of the
     workshop?  Why is this topic of particular interest at this time?
     If the workshop has been organized in the past at an IUI or other
     conference, please give details (audience, URL) and describe why it
     should be held again and how improvements will be made.

3. Objectives: What are the objectives that the workshop aims to
     achieve?  Objectives may include (a) targeting a predefined set of
     focus questions, (b) presenting alternate views on a particular
     issue that is of concern to the IUI community and attempting to
     resolve the issue, (c) identifying priorities for new directions of
     research, and/or (d) initiating the appropriate collaborations.

4. Format: Give a description of the proposed workshop format,
     including the planned activities (such as position statements,
     invited talks, panels, demos, and general discussion), as well as
     how these activities address the workshop objectives.  Preference
     will be given to proposals for activities designed to fuel
     discussion and interaction among participants; workshops consisting
     solely of paper presentations are discouraged.  Provide a
     preliminary schedule with estimated times. Design your schedule for
     a length of 3 hours (half-day workshop) or 6 hours (full-day
     workshop) with a lunch break and one or two coffee breaks,
     respectively.

5. Potential Participants: Indicate how you plan to select
     participants and contributions to the workshop. State your estimate
     of the number of participants.  If possible, give a list of
     tentatively confirmed participants.

6. Workshop attraction: Indicate how you plan to attract submissions
     and/or participants.  If you have a plan to edit a book or a
     journal special issue as a result of your workshop, please indicate
     it.

7. Organizers: Give short descriptions of each of the organizers'
     qualifications related to the workshop topics. Indicate if you are
     planning to have a program committee to help with the
     organization/review process, and give names and contact information
     of PC members, if available.

Organizer's Responsibilities

The organizers of a workshop will be responsible for:
- Producing a one-page abstract for inclusion in the conference
    proceedings.
- Producing and distributing a Call for Participation.
- It should be made clear that all workshop participants are required
    to register for both the IUI conference and for the workshop.
- Selecting the workshop participants and the contributions to be
    included in the workshop.
- Maintaining a web site that contains the materials from the workshop
    and links common important dates to the IUI website to ensure
    coherence.
- Producing one large printable PDF with workshop material (if
    applicable/required) in order that the conference may print workshop
    proceedings.
- All workshop materials must be made available via the workshop
    website.
- Scheduling and coordinating the activities of the workshop.

2006 International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2006)
CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS

Sydney, Australia
January 29, 2006 to February 1, 2006 (Tutorials: January 29, 2006)
http://www.iuiconf.org/

Scope

IUI 2006 is the annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community
and serves as the principal international forum for reporting
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces.
Tutorials provide conference participants with the opportunity to gain
new insights, knowledge, and skills in intelligent user interfaces.
Tutorial topics may range from practical guidelines and standards to
academic issues and theory. Proposals will be reviewed by the tutorial
co-chairs.

Objectives

Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:
- Introduce novices to major topics concerning intelligent user
    interfaces.
- Provide instruction in established practices and methodologies.
- Survey a mature area of IUI research and/or practice.
- Motivate and explain an IUI topic of emerging importance.
- Introduce IUI experts to an IUI subarea in which they are not
    specialists.

Duration

Tutorials may last a half day or a full day.  Half-day tutorials are
three hours long (not including breaks). Full-day tutorials are six
hours long (not including breaks).

Important Dates

Proposals due               August 26, 2005
Notification of acceptance  September 5, 2005
Tutorial announcement due   September 12, 2005
Camera-ready summary due    November 14, 2005
Tutorial date               January 29, 2006

Submission Format

Those interested in presenting a tutorial should submit a proposal to
the Tutorial Chairs by email with a maximum length of 5 pages in PDF.
A tutorial proposal should contain the following information:
- Title. Title of the tutorial
- Description. A brief description of the tutorial, suitable for
    inclusion in the conference registration brochure, including both a
    one-sentence and a one-paragraph description.
- Duration. Duration of your tutorial (half- or full-day).
- Objective. Indicate which of the objectives listed above are best
    served by the proposed tutorial.
- Justification. An explanation of why the tutorial topic would be of
    interest to a substantial part of the IUI audience.
- Audience. Characterization of the potential target audience for the
    tutorial, including prerequisite knowledge.
- Outline. A detailed outline of the tutorial including a tentative
    schedule of topics to be dealt with with time allocations.
- Instructor Biography. A brief resume of the instructor(s), which
    should include name, postal address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail
    address, background in the tutorial area, any available example of
    work in the area (ideally, a published tutorial-level article or
    slides on the subject), evidence of teaching experience, and
    evidence of scholarship in IUI, AI, and/or HCI.
- Requirements. List any materials needed to run the tutorial, such as
    audio/visual needs, supplies for each participant, and/or
    limitations on the number of participants.

Tutorials are intended to provide an overview of the field and should
therefore present well-established information in a balanced way.
Tutorials should not advocate a single avenue of research or promote a
product.

If the proposed tutorial has been given previously, the proposal
should include information about where the tutorial has been given and
how it will be modified for IUI 2006.  If the tutorial has been given
at a previous IUI conference, describe how changes to the tutorial
will address comments from previous attendees.  Additional materials
may be submitted, but they will not necessarily be taken into
consideration in the review process.

Tutorial Notes

The presenters will be asked to prepare substantial tutorial notes,
which should include:
- An introduction to the topic
- Copies of all overhead transparencies and slides
- An annotated bibliography
- Copies of relevant background material or scholarly papers (for
    which the instructors have obtained any necessary reprint
    permission)
- Material for any tutorial exercises

Printing of tutorial notes will be done by the conference organization.


Review Criteria

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their estimated
benefit for prospective participants and on their fit within the
tutorial program as a whole. Factors to be considered include:
- Relevance, timeliness, importance, audience appeal, and attendance
    limits
- Suitability for presentation in a half-day or a full-day tutorial
    format
- Use of presentation methods that offer participants direct
    experience with the material being taught
- Past experience and qualifications of the instructors

Selection will also be based on the overall distribution of topics,
approaches (overview, theory, methodology, how-to), audience
experience levels, and specialties of the intended audiences.

A one page advance summary of each tutorial will appear in the
Proceedings of the 9th ACM International Conference on Intelligent
User Interfaces.

Compensation for presenting a tutorial will include one complimentary
conference registration (assuming a minimum number of 10 participants
at the tutorial who are registered by the time the tutorials begin).
