The ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST) is the premier forum for innovations in human-computer interfaces. Sponsored by ACM special interest groups on computer-human interaction (SIGCHI) and computer graphics (SIGGRAPH), UIST brings together people from diverse areas including graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW.
In 1994 the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg started an event that intended to put graduates from German Film and Media Schools in touch with the industry. It was labeled "Film and Media Exchange" and was supposed to take place every two years. With its high-quality presentations by international speakers, boothes and workshops by soft- and hardware vendors and additional partner events, it became an immediate success. After 1998 it changed its subtitle to "Congress for Digital Media Production".

The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2014 is the twenty-second event in a series of symposia and workshops dedicated to GIS. ACM SIGSPATIAL 2014 will take place from Nov 4 to 7 in Dallas, Texas, with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners to engage in interdisciplinary discussions and to foster collaborative research on all aspects of geographic information systems.
HCITISI 2014 is the intersection of the formal and factual sciences aimed at human-computer interaction, telecommunications, informatics and scientific information. The goal is to know the latest breakthroughs and the immediate trends, and also in the long term, of each one of the disciplines that make up the sets of the areas of knowledge we approach.
The current era of interactive communication makes us reflect and work daily to meet the needs of the societies to which we belong, and tends to improve the quality of life of each one of its members. In this environment the new technologies can and must be within reach of everyone. A state of the art will be the starting point of the works until reaching the future technological tendencies born from the interaction between the human being, the constant technological (r)evolution and the environment.
ICAT-EGVE 2014 is the merger of the 24th International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2014) and the 19th Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2014) in Bremen, Germany. This international event will be a unique opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their experience and knowledge with virtual reality, as well as augmented reality, mixed reality and 3D user interfaces.
The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2014 (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2014) is the twenty-second event in a series of symposia and workshops that began in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners in relation to novel systems based on geo-spatial data and knowledge, and fostering interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects of geographic information systems.
Through high-level networking, the 2014 VES Summit will explore the dynamic evolution of visual imagery: the artistry of the craft, the expansion of content and the growing applications for commerce.
