22nd ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
IUI 2017

St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus

March 13-16, 2017


*** Early Registration Deadline: February 7, 2017 ***

ACM IUI 2017 is the 22nd annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces
community and serves as a premier international forum for reporting
outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces.

ACM IUI is where the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) community meets
the Artificial Intelligence (AI), with contributions from related fields such as
psychology, behavioral science, cognitive science, computer graphics, design
or the arts. Our focus is to improve the interaction between humans and
machines, by leveraging both more traditional HCI approaches, as well as
solutions that involve state-of-the art AI techniques such as machine
learning, natural language processing, data mining, knowledge
representation and reasoning. ACM IUI welcomes contribution from any
relevant arena: academia, business, or non-profit organizations.

The conference brings together people from academia, industry and
non-profit organizations and gives its participants the opportunity to present
and see cutting-edge IUI work in a focused and interactive setting. It is large
enough to be diverse and lively, but small enough to allow for extensive
interaction among attendees and easy attendance to the events that the
conference offers, ranging from oral paper presentations, poster sessions,
workshops, panels and doctoral consortium for graduate students.

The 22nd edition of the conference will be held in Limassol, Cyprus.
Limassol (or Lemesos) is a multicultural bustling town, flanked by two
ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion, and guarded by the Amathusian
Aphrodite and Appolo Hylates. It is a town of great visual diversity and
contrast from spectacular seafront views, historic places like the mediaeval
Castle, and Byzantine churches. Along the 17 km long sandy beaches, two
Marinas, world renowned 5 star hotels, and a most exciting dining, shopping,
nightlife and yachting scene create a year-round vibrant lifestyle well beyond
the expectations of a Mediterranean island.

The conference venue is the well known 5* beach hotel St. Raphael Resort,
situated on one of the largest Blue Flag accredited beaches, only a short
coastal drive from the lively centre of town, approximately 10 minutes away
(http://www.raphael.com.cy). The Larnaca International Airport is 35 minutes
away, and Paphos International Airport is 55 minutes away. There are shops,
restaurants and bars within walking distance and a bus stop exactly outside
the hotel. The conference organizers have secured very competitive rates for
accommodation, both at the venue hotel as well as a number of other hotels
at close distance (http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/~george/lm/lm.php?tk=YXNpcy5vcmcgLAkJCXJ1bGVtbC1hbGxAcnVsZW1sLm9yZwkyMm5kIEFDTSBJbnRlcm5hdGlvbmFsIENvbmZlcmVuY2Ugb24gSW50ZWxsaWdlbnQgVXNlciBJbnRlcmZhY2VzIChJVUkgMjAxNyk6IENhbGwgZm9yIFBhcnRpY2lwYXRpb24JMjIJTGlzdHMJMTg1CWNsaWNrCXllcwlubw==&url=http%3A%2F%2Fiui.acm.org%2F2017/accommodation.html). In
addition, the conference organization offers airport transfers to and from the
hotels at very reasonable prices.

This year IUI attracted an overwhelming number of submissions for all types
of contributions (papers, posters, demos, etc.). The list of accepted
contributions can be found here: http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/~george/lm/lm.php?tk=YXNpcy5vcmcgLAkJCXJ1bGVtbC1hbGxAcnVsZW1sLm9yZwkyMm5kIEFDTSBJbnRlcm5hdGlvbmFsIENvbmZlcmVuY2Ugb24gSW50ZWxsaWdlbnQgVXNlciBJbnRlcmZhY2VzIChJVUkgMjAxNyk6IENhbGwgZm9yIFBhcnRpY2lwYXRpb24JMjIJTGlzdHMJMTg1CWNsaWNrCXllcwlubw==&url=http%3A%2F%2Fiui.acm.org%2F2017/accepted.html .
The program will consist of paper presentations, posters and demos sessions,
a Student Consortium and several workshops and tutorials. This exciting
program will be further enhanced with 3 keynotes by the Distinguisheed
ACM Speaker Panos Markopoulos (Eindhoven University of Technology),
George Samaras (University of Cyprus) and Shumin Zhai (Google). The
technical program will be complemented with a rich social program, including
a welcome reception and a conference dinner at a local traditional Greek
taverna with live entertainment.

We cordially invite you to attend IUI 2017 and the co-located workshops
and tutorials. Registration is open (http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/~george/lm/lm.php?tk=YXNpcy5vcmcgLAkJCXJ1bGVtbC1hbGxAcnVsZW1sLm9yZwkyMm5kIEFDTSBJbnRlcm5hdGlvbmFsIENvbmZlcmVuY2Ugb24gSW50ZWxsaWdlbnQgVXNlciBJbnRlcmZhY2VzIChJVUkgMjAxNyk6IENhbGwgZm9yIFBhcnRpY2lwYXRpb24JMjIJTGlzdHMJMTg1CWNsaWNrCXllcwlubw==&url=http%3A%2F%2Fiui.acm.org%2F2017/registration.html).
