Meeting Description:

Following the successful CUI conferences in 2019 and 2020, CUI 2021 will be a hybrid conference with sessions online and in person in Bilbao, Spain. The conference will run from 27 - 29 July 2021.

We plan to use the conference as a platform 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. We are looking 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
- conversational search
- methods for conversational user interface development and evaluation
- multimodal interaction involving speech, text or other language based interfaces
