The 14th Annual ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology
Disney's BoardWalk Inn Resort
Walt Disney World
Orlando, FL, USA
November 11-14, 2001

UIST is the premier forum for innovations in developing human-computer interfaces. The symposium brings together user-interface researchers and practitioners with an interest in techniques, tools, and technology for constructing high-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.

An exciting addition this year is the User Interface Design Contest, which will be held during the opening reception. Contestants will design and implement an interface to a real-time game application prior to the symposium, then use their interface to play the game in a tournament for prizes worth an estimated $2,500. The goal of the contest is to encourage participants to explore interface software and technology in an applied setting, and to provide an opportunity for participants to showcase their work to the UIST community in an exciting and entertaining format.

The following is a preliminary program:
