Submission Deadline: August 30, 2009
Colloquium Dates:    November 14 – 16, 2009
Location:            Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL

The annual Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer
Science (DHCS) was established to bring together researchers and
scholars in the humanities and computer science to advance the
digital humanities as a field of intellectual inquiry and to
identify and explore new directions and perspectives for future

We invite presentation proposals from scholars, researchers and
students on all topics that intersect current theory and practice in
the humanities and computer science.

Last year's proceedings can be downloaded from http://jdhcs.uchicago.edu

2009 Keynote Speakers:

 * Stephen Wolfram (http://www.stephenwolfram.com/), the founder and
   CEO of Wolfram Research, creator of Mathematica, and author of A
   New Kind of Science.

IUI 2010: ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
7-10 February, 2010
Hong Kong, China
*Paper Submission Deadline: September 25, 2009

We are very pleased to invite you once again to participate in 2010 ACM
International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces.
IUI 2010 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.
IUI is where the community of people interested in Human-Computer
Interaction (HCI) meets the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community.
We're also very interested in contributions from related fields, such
as psychology, cognitive science, computer graphics, the arts, etc..


Long & Short Paper submissions: Friday, 25 Sept. 2009, 11:59pm US PDT
Long paper review notification: Monday, 2 November 2009 Rebuttal process
Long paper rebuttals due:       Monday, 9 November 2009 Rebuttal process
Long and Short Paper final notification:        Friday, 23 November 2009
Long & Short Paper camera-ready due:    Friday, 11 December 2009

Why submit to IUI?

Unlike traditional AI, our focus is not so much to make the computer
smart all by itself, but to make the interaction between computers and
people smarter. Unlike traditional HCI, we're more willing to consider
solutions that involve large amounts of knowledge, heuristics, and
emerging technologies such as natural language understanding or
gesture recognition.

The IUI conference gives you a chance to present and to see work in an
intimate, focused, no-nonsense event. It is large enough to be diverse
and lively (we expect around 200 people), but small enough to avoid
the circus-like atmosphere of conferences with thousands of people.
The vast majority of the attendees are actively involved with
conceiving and developing cutting-edge interfaces leading to a high
and fast impact of research results presented at IUI. It brings
together people from academics, industry, and nonprofits. As an ACM
conference, papers appear in the ACM Digital Library and citation
indices. There will also be a journal publication path for selected
papers. It's a single track conference, so you don't have to miss
anything. And it's always in a beautiful place!


IUI topics include, but are not limited to:

Processing of user input
    Processing and integration of multimodal input
    Natural language and speech processing
    Gesture and handwriting processing

Generation of system output
    Smart visualization tools
    Intelligent generation of multimedia presentations
    Generation of situation-specific output (e.g., on mobile
devices, wall-size displays, multi-touch screens, meeting
accessibility criteria)

Ubiquitous computing
    Intelligent interfaces for ubiquitous computing
    Smart environments

Help intelligent assistants for complex tasks
    Support for collaboration in multiuser environments
    Intelligent information and knowledge management

Novel, intelligent interaction system
    Affective, social and aesthetic interfaces
    User-adaptivity in interactive systems
    Personalization and recommender systems
    Modeling and prediction of user behavior
    Planning and plan recognition

IUI design
    Knowledge-based approaches to user interface design and generation
    Proactive and agent-based paradigms for user interaction
    Example-based and demonstration-based interfaces

User studies
    User studies concerning intelligent interfaces
    Evaluation methods and evaluations of implemented intelligent user
