Traditionally, user interface design is a knowledge-intensive task complying with specific domains, yet being user friendly. Besides operational requirements, design recommendations refer to standards of the application domain or corporate guidelines.
Commonly there is a set of general user interface guidelines; the challenge is due to a need for cross-team expertise. Required knowledge differs from one application domain to another, and the core knowledge is subject to constant changes and to individual perception and skills.
Passive approaches allow designers to initiate the search for information in a knowledge-database to make accessible the design information for designers during the design process. Active approaches, e.g., constraints and critics, have been also developed and tested. These mechanisms deliver information (critics) or restrict the design space (constraints) actively, according to the rules and guidelines. Active and passive approaches are usually combined to capture a useful user interface design.
The International Workshop on Knowledge-based User Interface, KUI’07, brings together practitioners and researchers for discussion and work on the emerging aspects pertaining to advanced techniques for knowledge-based interfaces.
TOPICS OF SPECIAL INTEREST (but not limited to):
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE AUTHORS
The KUI 2007 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, posted on IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and indexed with major indexes.
Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received papers will be acknowledged via the EDAS system.
Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11" (two columns IEEE format), not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page.
Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be provided by the IEEE CS Press an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.
Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations
The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the conference’s CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send your presentations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals can be for half or full day tutorials. Please send your proposals to email@example.com.
The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies. Please send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
