We invite the submission of full research papers, describing original work that has not been previously published, not accepted for publication elsewhere, and not simultaneously submitted or currently under review in another journal or conference (including the other tracks of CUI 2022).

We particularly encourage the submission of high quality replication studies in addition to well-designed studies with null results.

Full papers are original contributions from a broad range of disciplines including: human-computer interaction, computer science, engineering, speech technology, linguistics, psychology, cognitive sciences, sociology and other cognate disciplines.


Submissions of full research papers must be in English, in PDF format, anonymized, and approximately 6,000 words (including figures, tables, proofs, appendixes, and any other content excluding references and acknowledgments). Suitable LaTeX, Word, and Overleaf templates are available from the ACM Website (Word users should use “Submission Template”, LaTeX users should use the “manuscript” document class in the Master Article Template). ACM’s CCS concepts and keywords are not required for review but may be required if accepted and published by the ACM.

For LaTeX, the following should be used:
\documentclass[manuscript, review, anonymous]{acmart}

Each paper will be peer reviewed by three expert reviewers. Submissions must be made through the submission system. Accepted papers will be available online and given an oral presentation slot at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.

Review process for 2022

For 2022 the review process will be slightly modified, transitioning away from a submit-review-rebut process. Instead, a shepherding process is introduced that implements a “light revise & resubmit”. With this, we expect to further increase the quality of the CUI proceedings, while at the same time reducing the burden on both authors and reviewers. Papers for which there is a very high agreement among reviewers regarding recommendation for inclusion in the proceedings will receive early acceptance decisions and will no longer be required to submit a rebuttal (this is the equivalent of “conditionally accepted”). A small number of papers that may require further revisions will be shepherded (equivalent to major revisions or light revise & resubmit), with 3 weeks allocated for authors to coordinate the revisions with the associated chair (AC) coordinating each paper. This may include targeted revisions to specific parts of the original submission addressing the most significant points raised by the reviewers, or alternative forms as deemed appropriate by the AC (such as a detailed proposal of how such revisions may be carried out – details that the previous rebuttal would not have had the space for).

Any questions?

Please contact the Full Papers Chairs if you have any questions.
