AVI 2012 Advanced Visual Interfaces International Working Conference
Hotel La Palma, Capri Island (Naples),
Italy May 22-26, 2012


In cooperation with: ACM-SIGCHI (pending), ACM-SIGMM, SIGCHI Italy


The 11th International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces
(AVI2012) will be held in the island
of Capri (Naples), Italy, May 22-26, 2012. Started in 1992 in Roma, 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.
Through the years, the Conference has witnessed the growing interest
within the community for mobile devices such
as smartphones, palmtops and PDAs, in the framework of both traditional
and emerging environments, such as
ubiquitous and pervasive computer applications. 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.
Submissions are solicited under, but not limited to, the following
specific topics:

Accessibility and Usability
Adaptive Interfaces
Animated Interfaces
Cognitive blending
Cognitive Models of the User
Context Aware Interaction
Controlled Studies and Usability Testing
End-User Development
HCI and Web 2.0
Information Visualization
Interactive and Collaborative Interfaces
Interface Evaluation
Interfaces for Art, Cultural Heritage and Tourism
Interface Metaphors
Interfaces for Public Participation
Map-based Interaction
Mobile Interaction Design
Multimodal Interfaces
Participatory Design
Perceptual Interfaces
Virtual and Augmented Reality
Visual Analytics Interfaces
Visual Data Mining
Visual Databases
Visual Interface Design
Web-Based Social Interaction

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
characterizing advanced interfaces of the next

Four kinds of contribution are solicited:

Research papers, describing original and unpublished work about the above
or closely related topics. Papers should
not exceed 8 pages in the ACM SIG Proceedings format

Short papers, describing promising work in progress. Short papers should
not exceed 4 pages in the ACM SIG
Proceedings format.

Interactive posters including late-breaking and preliminary results,
smaller results not suitable for a full or
short paper, innovative ideas not yet validated through user studies,
early PhD student research, and other research
best presented in an interactive forum. Submissions should include an
extended abstract no longer than 4 pages,
including all figures and references.

System papers (DEMO), including demonstrations of prototypes, up to 2
pages in the ACM conference format. System papers
will be accompanied by a demonstration of the software prototype, and
should include a description of the hw/sw
requirements on a separate sheet.
Papers will be submitted electronically. Detailed information on
electronic submission will be provided at the AVI 2012
web site: http://www.avi2012.it
At least one author is required to attend the conference in order to
present the paper. Papers and Demo descriptions
presented at the Conference will be included in the Proceedings published
by ACM Press (approval pending).
