Objectives

The 8th International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI 2006) will be held in Venice, Italy, May 23-26, 2006. Started in 1992 in Rome, and held every two years in different Italian towns, the Conference traditionally brings together experts in different areas of computer science who have a common interest in the conception, design and implementation of visual and, more generally, perceptual interfaces, with a growing interest for mobile devices such as smartphones, palmtops and PDAs, in the framework of traditional and emerging environments, such as ubiquitous and pervasive computer applications. A special theme of this edition, suggested by the beautiful town hosting the conference, will be the design of advanced interfaces for art, cultural heritage and tourism. Both formal methods and concrete applications well fit into the framework of the conference, whose program also includes invited talks, given by leaders in the field.

Topics

Paper and Demo Submission

We strongly encourage submissions that address research and development on the above and other related topics, or that propose new approaches suitable for fulfilling the demands that characterize advanced interfaces of the next generation. Three kinds of contribution are solicited:

Papers will be submitted electronically. Detailed information on electronic submission will be provided at the AVI 2006 web site: http://www.dsi.unive.it/avi2006.

At least one author is required to attend the conference and present the paper. Paper and Demo descriptions presented at the Conference will be included in the Proceedings published by ACM Press (approval pending).

Tutorial and Workshop Proposal Submission

Tutorials - Tutorials provide conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights in the area of advanced visual interfaces. The tutorial proposal must be between two and three pages in length, and contain the following information:

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the quality of the proposal, their benefits to participants and their fit within the overall programme of AVI 2006. Factors to be considered include relevance, timeliness and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half-day or full-day format; use of appropriate presentation methods and exercises; past experience and qualifications of the instructors.
Tutorials that advocate a single avenue of research or promote products will not be considered.
Accepted tutorials might be later canceled if too few attendees register for the tutorial to support the costs of running it.

Workshops - The purpose of workshops is to provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. The workshop proposal must be between two and three pages in length, and contain the following information:

Workshop and tutorial proposal must be sent as PDF e-mail attachments to the Tutorial and Workshop Chair Luca Chittaro, e-mail: chittaro @dimi.uniud.it, url http://www.dimi.uniud.it/chittaro/

Prototype Demonstration Submission

The Exhibit Program will primarily consist of demonstrations of software prototypes. The demonstration proposal should include a detailed project/system description specifying hw/sw requirements. A full working version of accepted prototypes must be available for installation by April 20, 2006.
