Workshop Date: 20th March 2019

 

We invite researchers who are working towards User Experience, Internet of Things and developing Intelligent UI for IoT Systems to submit their work to the IUI 2019 Workshop on Intelligent User Interfaces for Internet of Things.

 

About the Workshop

 

Internet of Things (IoT) in one of the fastest growing technology of the modern world. The idea of a connected world has held a grip on numerous industries. IoT systems are being used in a wide range of applications, from household to industrial and from medical to agriculture. This workshop is focused on the User Experience in IoT environments.

 

We invite researchers to come together and discuss ideas and future directions for designing intelligent interfaces for various IoT domains.

 

Topics Covered

 

We invite papers that address the following topics. Papers on related topics that are not listed are also welcome. If you want to make sure that your paper fits the workshop, please do not hesitate to contact the organizers.

 

  • Interface Design for IoT
  • Interaction paradigms for IoT
  • IoT usage and adoption studies
  • Privacy and Security by Design in IoT spaces
  • Usability of IoT Systems
  • Voice controlled IoT system (Interactive Conversational Agents)
  • User Modeling for IoT
  • Adaptive IoT systems
  • IoT applications, e.g. Smart Homes, M-Health, Public Tracking
  • Accessibility for IoT Systems

 

The above list is not exhaustive. Papers on related topics that are not listed are also welcome. If you want to make sure that your paper fits the workshop, please do not hesitate to contact the organizers.

 

 

 

Author guidelines

 

We invite three types of paper submissions: Research Papers, Position papers and Resume/C.V. Both should be submitted by November 30, 2018 at 6pm Atlanta time (GMT-5:00).

 

Research and Position Papers

 

Papers can be submitted in two types of formats:

 

  • 4 page extended abstract: Authors can submit papers about their completed or work in progress research.
  • 2-page position  statement: Authors can submit position papers which are oriented towards opportunities and challenges of studying IoT from an IUI perspective.

 

Resumes/C.V.

 

We invite Resumes/C.V. for anyone who wants to join this workshop in order to reserve a seat for a workshop.

Keynote: Augmented, Adaptive, Accessible, and Inclusive Things

By Dr. Illaria Torre

 

In this new age of the Internet of Things (IoT) people and things are increasingly immersed in a computing environment that is aimed to simplify and improve daily activities. The Web of Things (WoT) is near to become a W3C Recommendation with the aim to support semantic interoperability across IoT platforms by providing a common interaction model independent of the underlying protocols. In this talk, I will illustrate the main principles of the WoT paradigm and then I will discuss the issue of Accessibility. Following on from the WoT concept of  Things as virtual representations of physical digital things and also non-digital things, I will introduce an approach where we envision an Adaptive Web of Things as a mean to increase accessibility and usability of real world objects. The idea is that through the virtualization of physical objects, even objects which are not natively accessible can be augmented to become accessible and inclusive if proper adaptations are performed in order to fit the user’s needs

 

About Dr. Illaria Torre

 

Ilaria Torre, PhD, is Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics and Systems Engineering in Genoa University, and an Advisory Board member of the PhD School in Digital Humanities. Since her PhD dissertation in 2003 on User Modelling and Adaptive Systems, her main research interests include intelligent user interfaces, adaptive systems, recommender systems and ubiquitous systems. Over the years, she worked on the application of HCI and AI in various fields.

 

Ilaria is author of a book and published over 70 papers in international journals and conferences. She served as TPC member of a number of conferences including ACM IUI, ACM UMAP, Interact, and as reviewer for important journals. She has been invited speaker at Ubiquitous User Modeling workshop (2011) and Social Media and Data Science  (2017) at Haifa, Israel. Recently, she co-organized IUadaptMe Workshop at ACM UMAP 2018, IoTAAL at the IEEE GIobal IoT Summit 2017 and SmartLearn at ACM IUI 2017. In 2016 she was co-Chair of the Workshops and Doctoral Consortium at the AI*IA Conference. At present, she is Guest Editor of a Special Issue for the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies Journal and co-Chair of the Student Consortium at the ACM IUI Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces 2019.
