The 14th Annual ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST 2001) was held this year at Disney World in Orlando, Florida from November 11-14. This year's conference included a new attraction at its opening reception, a user-interface design contest. Contestants had several months to design and build a real-time control interface to a custom game application. At the contest they used their interfaces to play a suite of game scenarios. Game scores were used to rank the teams and their interfaces. Thanks to generous sponsorship from ACM SIGCHI, all participants were given a T-shirt, all student participants received free registration to the UIST Symposium, and prizes were awarded in the following categories: best overall UI; second-best UI; best single-user UI; and best student-designed UI.
