Design Guidelines for Conversational User Interfaces

Proposals Due March 29, 2017

Sunday, 23 April 2017 |  Afternoon  | Just prior to SpeechTEK 2017

Washington, D.C.


The Association for Voice Interaction Design is seeking proposals for the 2017 workshop on voice interaction design, “Design Guidelines for Conversational User Interfaces.”  The AVIxD workshop is a hands-on session in which voice interaction design practitioners come together to debate a topic of interest to our community. The workshop is an opportunity to meet with your peers and delve deeply into a single issue. Visit us online at avixd.org to see white papers from previous workshops and to learn how you can be part of AVIxD.

This year’s workshop will build on the results of the 2016 workshop, in which we defined a set of issues and questions around conversational user interfaces (AVIxD Workshop 2016 Draft). This year, our goal is to begin to address these questions and modify and/or amend the AVIxD Design Guidelines (http://videsign.wikispaces.com/).  To be considered for the workshop, individuals must submit a position paper of approximately 250 words addressing an issue related to design guidelines for conversational user interfaces. We encourage you to share your hands-on experiences and support your position with available evidence. Potential topics include:

  • A response to one of the specific issues raised in the 2016 workshop
  • A clarification or elaboration on one of the issues
  • Introduction of a relevant issue we failed to include
  • An argument against one or more of the topics

The workshop is free for invited participants who are active AVIxD members; non-members will be charged $55, and the fee will cover AVIxD annual membership dues as well.

Please submit your paper via email no later than March 29, 2017 to avixdworkshop@gmail.com. Letters of acceptance and details about meeting time and location will be sent out shortly thereafter.

We look forward to seeing you in D.C.!  Send questions, comments, or complaints to avixdworkshop@gmail.com or to any of the workshop committee.
