Announcement and Call for Participation

1998 Workshop on Perceptual User Interfaces (PUI'98)
November 5-6, 1998
San Francisco, CA

Last October, the first Workshop on Perceptual User Interfaces (PUI'97) was
held in Banff, Canada. This meeting began a dialog which will continue this
year with the 1998 Workshop on Perceptual User Interfaces (PUI'98), to be
held at the Mark Hopkins Inter-Continental Hotel in San Francisco,
California. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers
from academia and industry with common interests in making human-computer
interaction more natural and compelling by integrating perceptual
capabilities into the user interface.

The two-day workshop will be structured to facilitate a high degree of
interaction. There will be oral and poster presentations of current
research, invited talks, focused discussion or break-out sessions, panel
discussions, and open discussion time. The meeting directly follows the ACM
UIST'98 conference, to be held at a nearby hotel.

Topics of interest include speech and sound recognition, vision-based
interfaces, haptics, multimodal interfaces, learning and user modeling,
cognitive studies, integrating multiple sources of information, and systems
issues associated with perceptual user interfaces.

There are three categories of submissions, due by July 10, 1998:
(1) FULL PAPER describing original research in areas related to
perceptual user interfaces. Accepted papers will be presented orally at the
(2) RESEARCH NOTE describing ongoing research and/or demonstrations.
Accepted research notes will be presented at a poster/demo session.
(3) WORKSHOP PROPOSAL describing a panel, break-out session, or
mini-workshop, intending to promote and provoke relevant discussion.
See the workshop's web site for more detailed submission instructions.
