In its call for papers, the 2008 conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI-2008) states the following:
'It's time for the next generation of user interfaces. People want to do increasingly interesting and complex things with information technologies, but our interfaces need new ways of interacting with people. We can't get to the next generation of user interfaces simply by adding more menus and icons to our already overcrowded screens. Sooner or later, our interfaces need to understand more about what people are doing with them, become self-reflective, and communicate using natural modalities such as speech and gesture.' Among others, the following topics will be studied in this seminar: embodied and social agents, inference and uncertainty, dialogue management, multimodality, natural language interfaces, ambient intelligence and evaluation.
· Study of the state of the art in intelligent user interfaces.
- Development and presentation of a conceptual model of an intelligent user interface
