CALL FOR PAPERS & NOTES
6th Annual ACM Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2011 (ITS 2011)
November 13-16, 2011
Portopia Hotel, Kobe, Japan
The Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2011 Conference (ITS) is a premiere venue for presenting research in the design and use of new and emerging tabletop and interactive surface technologies. As a new community, we embrace the growth of the discipline in a wide variety of areas, including innovations in ITS hardware, software, design, and projects expanding our understanding of design considerations of ITS technologies and of their applications.
Building on their success in previous years, ITS again features Papers and Notes presentations, as well as tutorials, posters, and demonstrations tracks. For the second time, ITS 2011 will also include a doctoral symposium.
ITS 2011 will bring together top researchers and practitioners who are interested in both the technical and human aspects of ITS technology.
On behalf of the conference organizing committee, we invite you to begin planning your submissions and participation for this year’s conference!
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: PAPERS AND NOTES
The use of interactive surfaces is an exciting and emerging research area. Display technologies, such as projectors, LCD and OLED flat panels, and even flexible display substrates, coupled with input sensors capable of enabling direct interaction, make it reasonable to envision a not-so-distant future in which many of the common surfaces in our environment will function as digital interactive displays. ITS brings together researchers and practitioners from a variety of backgrounds and interests, such as camera and projector based systems, new display technologies, multi-touch sensing, user interface technologies, augmented reality, computer vision, multimodal interaction, novel input and sensing technologies, computer supported cooperative work (CSCW), and information visualization.
The intimate size of this single-track symposium provides an ideal venue for leading researchers and practitioners to exchange research results and experiences. We encourage submissions on (but not limited to) the following topic areas as they relate to interactive tabletops and surfaces:
* Gesture-based interfaces
* Multi-modal interfaces
* Tangible interfaces
* Novel interaction techniques
* Data handling/exchange on large interactive surfaces
* Data presentation on large interactive surfaces
* Software engineering methods
* Computer supported collaborative work
* Middleware and network support
* Virtual reality and augmented reality
* Social protocols
* Information visualizations
* hardware, including sensing and input technologies with novel capabilities
* Human-centered design & methodologies

Papers/Notes: We invite paper submissions of two kinds: Papers (10 pages) and Notes (4 pages). Papers must present original, highly innovative, prospective and forward-looking research, possibly in one or more of the themes given above. Notes must also report novel and complete research, but where the scope and scale of the contribution is more focused and succinct than papers. Submissions must be submitted as a single PDF file in the ACM format through the submission system. A template for submissions can be found on the ITS website (http://its2011.jp/).
All accepted submissions will be presented at ITS 2011 and appear in the ITS digital proceedings and be archived in the ACM digital library.
Paper/Note Submissions: June 30, 2011
Paper/Note Author Notifications: September 2, 2011 Paper/Note Camera-Ready Deadline: October 21, 2011
The calls for the posters, demos, tutorials, workshops and the doctoral symposium will be published soon, please check our website for further information.
