Eighteenth Annual ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology

Mary Czerwinski and Patrick Baudisch give a tantalizing preview of the upcoming UIST 2005 conference.

We are happy to announce that UIST 2005, the Eighteenth Annual ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology, will be held in Seattle, Washington from October 23-26, 2005.

UIST is the premier forum for innovations in the software and technology of human-computer interfaces. Sponsored by ACM's special interest groups on computer-human interaction (SIGCHI) and computer graphics (SIGGRAPH), UIST brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse areas that include traditional graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW. The intimate size, the single track, and comfortable surroundings make this symposium an ideal opportunity to exchange research results and implementation experiences.

Featured topics include:

  • Novel, enabling technologies such as augmented reality, perceptual user interfaces, tactile user interfaces, tangible user interfaces, multimedia user interfaces, CSCW user interfaces and unconventional input devices;

  • Innovative user interfaces for difficult or challenging applications, such as the management of large, complex information sets, or domains, such as ubiquitous computing;

  • Innovative software architectures and development environments that support the development and use of the above technologies and user interfaces.

In addition, TechNotes, Posters and Demonstrations round out the technical program. A Doctoral Symposium will be held the day before the conference for a select set of PhD students as well.

Seattle is a big, diverse city, nestled in a natural setting of incomparable beauty. Even though the population of the region is 3.5 million and java jolts can be found on every corner, Seattleites are still laid-back enough to wait for the WALK signal to cross the street. And sure, it rains here, but did you know it rains more in New York and Atlanta? So whatever your interests, from hiking to pro sports to a night at the symphony, Seattle's got it-and you can do it.

Sponsors for UIST 2005 include Intel, Microsoft Research, SMART Technologies Inc., SAP, Adobe, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Mitsubishi Electric, Tableau Software, FXPal, IBM and Sun.

Registration is open:, with early registration ending September 10, 2005. The conference program is available at:

Mary Czerwinski and Patrick Baudisch,
UIST 2005 Co-Chairs
