Call for Papers

CUI 2021 – 3rd International Conference on Conversational User Interfaces
Hybrid Event (online and on site at Bilbao, Spain)
27-29 July 2021

@CUI_Conference

Full paper submission deadline: February 12, 2021

There has been an increasing interest in language-based interactions with technology. Driven by the commercial success of intelligent personal assistant devices such as Alexa and Google Home, the number of natural language and conversation-based interactions is growing in commercial settings. Following the successful inaugural ACM In-Cooperation conference in 2019 and the virtual conference in 2020, CUI 2021 aims to further develop a collaborative community around human-computer interaction issues in speech and language technology, with a specific interest in theory-based and applied scientific issues in the field of speech and text-based conversational user interfaces. Thus CUI 2021 further looks to bring together relevant communities (e.g. ISCA, ACM SIGCHI, CogSci) to publish, disseminate and showcase high-quality cutting-edge research related to the field, promote insight and debate in this interesting and important discipline within language interfaces.

Topics relevant to the conference include, but are not limited to:

  • voice user experience
  • speech interfaces
  • speech interface theory development
  • conversational interaction through technology
  • text-based conversational interfaces
  • chatbots
  • speech synthesis
  • speech recognition
  • dialogue management
  • conversational interface design insights
  • methods for conversational user interface development and evaluation
  • multimodal interaction involving speech, text or other language based interfaces
  • conversational search

The conference offers 6 different contribution formats:
