Designing for inclusive conversation

The ACM conference on Conversational User Interfaces (CUI) 2023 was in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, from 19–21st July 2023. CUI has now been welcomed into the ACM family, and is now a SIGCHI sponsored conference!

There has been an increasing interest in language-based interactions with technology. Driven by the commercial success of intelligent personal assistant devices such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, the number of natural language and conversation-based interactions is growing in commercial settings.

CUI 2023 aimed 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. Thus CUI 2023 further looked to bring together relevant communities (e.g., ISCA, ACM SIGCHI, CogSci, CHIIR), to publish, disseminate and showcase high-quality cutting-edge research related to the field, promote insight and debate in this exciting and essential discipline within language interfaces.

The CUI community has been growing at a rapid pace these past few years and we are continuing to develop the conference series beyond 2023. The conference was primarily an in-person event, with a parallel hybrid element.
