ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction, SUI 2013
(co-located with ACM SIGGRAPH Conference)

July 20th-21st, 2013
Institute for Creative Technologies in Los Angeles, California, USA

We invite you to participate in the ACM Symposium on Spatial User
Interaction (SUI) 2013, the first international symposium focused on
the user interface challenges that appear when users interact in the
space where the flat, two-dimensional, digital world meets the
volumetric, physical, three-dimensional (3D) space we live in. This
considers both spatial input and 3D output, with an emphasis on the
issues around interaction between humans and systems.

Due to the advances in 3D technologies, spatial interaction is now
more relevant than ever. Powerful graphics engines and high-resolution
screens are now ubiquitous in everyday devices, such as tablets and
mobile phones. Moreover, new forms of input, such as multi-touch,
finger and body tracking technologies are now easily available. In this
environment, spatial UIs are transitioning out of the research
community and game industry. More and more commercial 3D systems with
spatial interaction capabilities exist, many priced at the consumer
level. Until now, the challenges, limitations, and advantages of using
this third dimension for human-computer interfaces have not been well
understood. These questions will only become more relevant as the
associated technologies continue to cross the barrier towards wide

The goal of the symposium is to provide an intensive exchange between
industrial and academic researchers working in the area of spatial user
interaction and to foster discussions among participants.

The two-day symposium will be held at the USC Institute for Creative
Technologies (ICT) in Los Angeles, CA, July 20th-21st, 2013 just prior
to the ACM SIGGRAPH 2013 conference. SUI 2013 will provide a shuttle
bus from the ICT to SIGGRAPH 2013 on Sunday evening.

ACM SUI 2013 is co-sponsored by ACM’s Special Interest Groups on
Graphics and Computer-Human Interaction (SIGGRAPH and SIGCHI).
