I'd probably cite that as Proceedings of UIST 1996. ACM Press, Nov. 1996.
UIST09 would not be right at all since the 9th UIST was not in 2009.
But as Willie Wong points out, just follow whatever arbitrary rules you want. For example, I'd list the general chairs, David Kurlander, Marc Brown, and Ramana Rao, as the editors. A complete citation might look like,
M. Spenke, C. Beilken, and T. Berlage, FOCUS: the interactive table for product comparison and selection. In D. Kurlander, M. Brown, and R. Rao, eds., Proceedings of UIST 1996, pages 41–50. ACM Press, Nov. 1996.
Knuth advocates spelling out the entire name of conferences and journals (in Mathematical Writing, I believe), but I think this is a good compromise given space limitations of conferences. I guess Proc. UIST 1996 would be shorter but that seems stilted to me.
