The ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems (TiiS)

(Latest update: Sunday, July 27th, 2014)

TiiS (pronounced “T double-eye S”) is an ACM journal for research about intelligent systems that people interact with.

The journal publishes articles on research concerning the design, realization, or evaluation of interactive systems that incorporate some form of machine intelligence.

TiiS articles come from a wide range of research areas and communities. An article can take any of several complementary views of interactive intelligent systems, focusing on ...

  • the intelligent technology,
  • the interaction of users with the system, or
  • both aspects at once.
