I really enjoyed my first time attending the ACM Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI). Before the conference, I participated in the doctoral consortium where I presented my interdisciplinary research incorporating intelligent interfaces with the creation of auditory displays. At the consortium, I received great advice from knowledgeable researchers in the field on how to present my work to this community and suggestions for areas I could explore in the future. Since the conference was single track, I was able to attend every presentation and learn the current state-of-the-art research at the intersection of artificial intelligence and human-computer interaction. I also presented my work during the poster session, which gave me a chance to interact directly with many of the other conference attendees. Everyone was very welcoming to my interdisciplinary work and I look forward to attending this conference in the future!
