======================== DESCRIPTION =========================

The use of the 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 future in which many surfaces in
our environment from tabletops, walls and floors will function
as a digital interactive display. This domain brings together
different technologies such as camera and projector based systems,
new display technologies, multi-touch and tangible interfaces,
and other novel user interface and input techniques, potentially
combining these with social learnings from user studies in the lab
and the field. This is very much a cross-disciplinary workshop
stretching across computer science (HCI, CSCW, computer vision,
augmented reality, information visualization, graphics, and
machine learning), hardware engineering, optics, as well as
many aspects of design and the social sciences.

The intimate size of this single-track workshop provides an ideal
venue for leading researchers and practitioners to exchange
research results and implementation experiences. We encourage
researchers and developers to present there work on interactive
tabletops and surfaces in areas including:

    * Applications
    * Gesture-Based Interfaces
    * Multi-Modal Interfaces
    * Tangible Interfaces
    * User Interface Technologies
    * Interaction Techniques
    * Computer Supported Collaboration Systems
    * Middleware and Network Support
    * Augmented Reality
    * Lab and In-Situ User Studies
    * Information Visualization
    * Sensing and Input Technologies

===================== SUBMISSION FORMATS =====================

** Full and short papers:
We invite paper submissions of two kinds - regular research
papers of up to 8 pages and short papers of up to 4 pages
describing original research on investigations into tabletop and
interactive surface systems. Each paper will be peer reviewed by
no less than three experts in the field. Accepted research papers
will be included in the IEEE proceedings and presented in the
paper sessions.

** Posters and demos:
Posters and demos provide an interactive forum for authors to
present work to conference attendees. Posters and demos provide
an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in
progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than papers. Poster
submissions should be in the form of a two-page paper submitted
through our online system.

Paper and poster submissions should use the IEEE format.
Templates can be downloaded from the website in PDF, Word, Latex
and PS formats.

Electronic submissions can be made through the TableTop2008 PCS
submission site:
