We invite original paper submissions that describe novel user interfaces, applications,
interactive and intelligent technologies, empirical studies, or design techniques. See the topics
section above for a more comprehensive list of areas in which IUI encourages submissions.
Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library. IUI 2013 especially encourages
submissions on innovative and visionary new concepts or directions for interface design. We do
not require evaluations with users, but we do expect papers to include an appropriate evaluation
for their stated contribution.
- Focus: 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 do not require in-depth studies with users to motivate or prove the
effectiveness of the research. Evaluations need only be appropriate to the type of
- Format: All papers should be submitted in the CHI Archive Format
- Paper length: The length of a paper should be commensurate with the size of its
contribution, and we expect papers to be succinct but thorough in presenting the work.
Reviewers will be asked to weigh the contribution of a paper relative to its length. A
maximum length of 10 pages will be enforced, not including references, but no
minimum length will be enforced. Shorter, more focused papers are encouraged, and will
be reviewed like any other paper. Note that unlike previous years, there will no longer be
a separate short paper category.
- Abstracts due early: To facilitate a faster review process, abstracts will be due a week
before the full paper deadline. Abstract submission is required, and paper submissions
that fail to submit an abstract by the abstract deadline will not be reviewed.
- Reviewing and rebuttal process: Each paper will be reviewed by a primary reviewer
from the program committee and two or more external reviewers (experts in the area
that are not on the committee). On November 26, authors will be notified of their reviews.
If reviews fall below the auto-rejection threshold the paper will be rejected at this stage.
Otherwise, the authors will have the opportunity to submit a rebuttal if their paper is
above the rejection threshold. Furthermore, a secondary reviewer (from the papers
committee) will be asked to write a review prior to the committee meeting taking into
account the rebuttal.
- Anonymization: All papers must be appropriately anonymized according to the
Failure to follow these guidelines may result in papers being rejected without review.
- Author's names and affiliations are not present in the paper.
- Self-citations should be included where necessary, but must use the third person.
For example, "... as shown in our previous user study  ..." is not allowed,
whereas "... Smith et al.  show that" is acceptable. Do not exclude citations to
relevant work simply because they are self-citations or “blind” self-citations by
removing the text of the reference from the references section.
- Remove or anonymize acknowledgments.
- All accepted papers presented orally: All accepted papers of any length will be
presented orally at the conference and published in the ACM Digital Library. Please see the presentation instructions for more information.
- No more “accept as short paper”: Previous IUI conferences have accepted some long
papers contingent on their being shortened to the short paper page length. This year
papers will be accepted at their submitted length only.
- Videos: Submission of a video accompanying your paper is optional, but highly
encouraged. However, videos should be no more than five minutes in length and 50MB
in size. Video submission guidelines will be coming soon.
- Submission: See Resources box at the top of the page.
