The ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems (TiiS)

(Latest update: Friday, February 14th, 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.


Bye Bye Backlog

TiiS is one of the ACM journals that has now adopted “article-first” publishing: Articles will be copy-edited, typeset, and published in the ACM Digital Library soon after acceptance, regardless of whether the issue in which they are scheduled to appear is complete. Especially in combination with the journal’s increased annual page budget, this procedure means that the publication backlog will soon be a thing of the past for TiiS. Thanks are due to the folks at ACM for regularly coming up with improvements like this one, which benefit authors, readers, and others who are involved in the journal publication process.

TiiS@IUI 2014

The authors of six recently published or accepted TiiS articles will be presenting their work in plenary talks at the 2014 ACM conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2014, Haifa, Israel, February 24–27). This tradition of collaboration, which was built up at IUI 2012 and IUI 2013, enables TiiS authors to bring their work directly to the attention of attendees at the most relevant top-tier conference, while also enabling IUI attendees to benefit from the work done throughout the past year by TiiS reviewers, editors, and authors.  

Current and Upcoming Issues

The tenth issue, 3(4), of ACM TiiS comprises 6 regular articles.

The next issue, 4(1), will appear there by April, 2014.

Articles that have been accepted for the subsequent issues are listed as upcoming articles.
