The Posters category provides researchers with an opportunity to present work in a forum that facilitates open discussion, and enables authors to interact directly with conference attendees. In the Posters category, we encourage the submission of late-breaking, preliminary, or exploratory work, smaller projects or results not suitable for a full paper, and any other research that authors wish to present in an interactive, open forum.

Poster submissions should include an extended abstract of no longer than 2 pages in the ACM SIGCHI conference publications format (, including all figures and references. Submissions may also include an optional single page describing or illustrating the proposed poster. This page is should convey to reviewers visual aspects of the poster that may not come across in the abstract, for example including a key graphic to be used in the poster. This supplemental page is for review purposes only and will not be published.

Accepted 2-page Poster abstracts will be published in a Conference Supplement that will be distributed to attendees at the conference; they will not be incorporated into the main UbiComp 2005 Conference Proceedings.

Submissions should be sent as .pdf files to by June 10, 2005.
