*** Notification: January 31, 2017 (late applications will not be considered) ***


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.

The objective of IUI's student support is to encourage students interested in
subjects related to Intelligent User Interfaces to become active members of
the IUI community. To apply, the student should be actively enrolled as a
student in an academic institution. Priority will be given to students who are
first authors of accepted papers and to participants in the doctoral
consortium, to minorities and women. Recipients of the stipend are also
expected to help the conference organization as student volunteers. The level
of support will be determined by the availability of funds and the number of
eligible applications.

The student volunteer chairs are here to help, please contact us at
[hidden email] if you have any questions that are not covered by the
documents and links found below.

Currently, there are four grant schemes available which are detailed below:
- The SIGAI Student Travel Grant.
- The IUI Travelling Grant supported by SIGCHI.
- The German AI Society Travel Grant - for German students.
- The National Science Foundation Travelling Grant - for US students.

The IUI Chairs will decide about the allocation of the sources of support to
students that will be eligible for travelling grants (there are some differences
between the sources and what is required from the students - see below).

The application should include:
1. Full name.
2. Email address.
3. The school you are attending, your major, and the country in which the
school resides.
4. If you will present at the conference, please provide the title of the
submission and its type (e.g. research paper, student consortium, demo).
Please note if you have submitted but have not found out if your submission
has been accepted.
5. A short statement describing your research interests and how you wish to
benefit from attending IUI 2017.
6. The location you are flying from and the cost for your airfare, as
determined by the availability of low-cost economy fares for travel to the
conference. Please describe any other expenses you expect to accrue, but do
not include registration and housing costs, as they are similar for all students.
7. Students may specify if they are female, ethnic minority, or students with
disabilities, as we will consider these aspects when discussing the
applications.

A letter of recommendation from your thesis or doctoral advisor (or
supervising faculty member) sent separately by email to the Student
Volunteer Co-Chairs at [hidden email]. If you are also applying to the
Student Consortium, one appropriately worded recommendation letter can be
used for both applications, or you may submit a slightly different letter for
each application.

Please submit your single, combined PDF (except letter of
recommendation) to:
