Due to recent technological advances, it has become possible to integrate sensor
and actuator technologies as well as wireless communication in everyday objects
and environments. These developments open up a huge amount of innovative
interaction scenarios, involving new forms of user interfaces.
One kind that enables intuitive and natural interaction is tangible user
interfaces, referring to interfaces in which persons interact with digital
information through the physical environment. Tangible user interfaces are not
limited to the interactions of a single person, but can be used to support
interaction within - even dislocated - groups and smart artefacts.

Motivated by these developments, we see this workshop as an opportunity for
exploring the potentials and perspectives of tangible interaction for supporting
collaborative work. Because of its interdisciplinary topic, TICE
2006 aims at bringing together researchers of various fields, including Human
Computer Interaction, Tangible User Interfaces, Computer Supported Collaborative
Work, Sociology, Communication Technologies, Embedded Systems and Ubiquitous
Computing, to discuss key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative
applications, and trends of tangible interaction in collaborative environments.

We welcome participants from all disciplines related to the topic of this
workshop, including but not limited to Tangible User Interfaces, CSCW and
Ubiquitous Computing environments. We invite original research papers and
experience reports in all areas of collaborative methods and systems
development. Additionally, position papers outlining novel research domains and
approaches are welcome. Topics of interest include but are not limited

Interaction design of collaborative tangible environments

    * Design process for embodied/tangible interaction
    * Guidelines, methods and methodologies for collaborative interaction design
    * Concepts and patterns for physical and tangible interaction
    * Programming paradigms for building tangible environments
    * New paradigms for collaborative environments

Technological aspects of tangible user interfaces

    * Middleware, platforms and tools
    * Architectural concepts for enhancing tangible interaction in groups
    * Enabling technologies for instrumenting tangible artefacts
    * Innovative technological solutions

Case studies and application scenarios

    * Usability studies and evaluations of collaborative tangible environments
    * Visions and application scenarios
    * Security, privacy and trust in collaborative tangible environments
    * Collaborative tangible interaction for mobile users

February 24, 2006: Extended deadline for paper submission
April 7, 2006: Decision to paper authors
May 5, 2006: Camera-ready papers
May 12, 2006: Advance registration discount deadline
June 26-28, 2006: WETICE-2006 workshops and on-site registration

Papers must be written in English, and they should not exceed 6 pages double
column, including references, figures and tables. Papers must be formatted
according to the IEEE formatting instructions (8.5"x11", two-column). The papers
have to contain original contributions not published or submitted elsewhere, and
references to related state-of-the-art work. Papers should include a title, the
name and affiliation of each author, an abstract of up to 150 words and no more
than eight keywords.

Each paper will receive at least three anonymous peer reviews by program
committee members or additional expert reviewers. The accepted papers and a
summary report of this workshop will be published in the post-conference
proceedings and directly mailed to the registered authors by the IEEE Computer
Society Press after the conference. In order to get an accepted paper published
in the proceedings, at least one author has to register and present the paper at
WETICE 2006. If enough high-quality papers are submitted, we will contact a
journal to explore the possibility of a special issue.

Please submit anonymized papers in either PDF or PS format via the TICE 2006
submission website. If you have further questions or remarks, please do not
hesitate to contact the workshop organizers.

Accepted and presented papers will be included in the post-conference
proceedings, published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
