UIST'93, the Sixth Annual Symposium on User Interface Software and
Technology, is the premier forum on innovative development of the
human-computer interface. The symposium brings together user-interface
researchers and practitioners with an interest in techniques, tools,
and technology for constructing quality, innovative user interfaces.
The intimate size, single track, and comfortable surroundings make
this symposium an ideal opportunity to exchange research results and
implementation experiences. Papers and panel proposals are sought on a
wide range of user interface topics.


Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality papers about research to
enhance user interface functionality or to improve the user interface
development process. Appropriate topics include but are not limited

- Techniques for advanced interaction functionality, such as
multimedia, innovative displays, unconventional input devices, and
highly interactive interfaces.

- Innovative software architectures for developing user interfaces,
including those associated with user interface management systems,
window systems, toolkits and knowledge-based interfaces.

- Tools and techniques for designing, constructing and evaluating user
interfaces, including automated tools and object-oriented techniques.

- Interfaces with special operating system requirements, such as
real-time, multi-user, multi-input, multi-threaded, and distributed

- Interfaces for difficult or challenging applications, such as large
and/or complex information sets.

- Interfaces for users with special needs.

- The internationalization of the interface.

Videotapes of implementations are encouraged. We are exploring the
possibility of including video with the conference proceedings.
However, papers must stand on their own and will be reviewed
independently from submitted videotapes.

Submissions must present original research relevant to the symposium.
Papers should be at most 5000 words or 10 ACM conference pages.
Videotapes should be at most 8 minutes long. The submission should
consist of 6 copies of a paper, 2 copies of a videotape (if there is
one), and a cover letter indicating the primary author's name,
affiliation, address, phone number and email address (if at all
possible). The title page should include an abstract (less than 200
words) and keywords. The cover letter should also indicate whether the
submitted video can be part of the proceedings. Contact the program
chair for an author's packet.

Submissions must be received by the program chair no later than April
19, 1993. FAX cannot be used for submission. Authors will be notified
of acceptance by June 28, 1993.


Panels offer an opportunity to exchange ideas in an atmosphere that
reflects the workshop origins of the symposium. Suggested topics are
the same as for submitted papers. Of special interest would be panels
about "success stories" - successful user interfaces and the
techniques and tools by which they were developed, and panels about
the difficulties of converting promising research ideas into actual
commercial products. We also encourage submissions from outside North

Panel selection will be based on the importance, originality, focus,
and timeliness of the topic, as well as the potential for informative
(and even controversial) discussion. Panels should have no more than
five members, including the chair, and should be planned to last from
one to one-and-one-half hours. No more than half of the total time
will be allowed for position statements by panelists.

A panel proposal should be no more than two pages in length. It should

- A description of the panel topic, including why this topic is
important to symposium attendees.

- A brief position statement of each panelist.

A cover sheet should include the panel title, length of time desired
for the panel, panelists' names and affiliations, and the panel
organizer's name, affiliation, address, e-mail address, and phone

Submissions must be received by the panels chair no later than April
19, 1993. Authors will be notified of acceptance by June 28, 1993.
