The ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems

(Latest update: Wednesday, January 14th, 2015)

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.

  • Opportunity for TiiS authors to present at an ACM IUI conference: A cooperation agreement has been worked out between ACM TiiS and the steering committee of the ACM conference series on Intelligent User Interfaces. This agreement ensures continuation of the tradition, started in 2012, that authors of an accepted TiiS article will have an opportunity to present their article at the next year’s IUI conference.
  • With the approval of the ACM Publications Board, TiiS has established an annual TiiS Best Paper Award.
