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.
