ITS 2010


The ACM International Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces
2010  (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 first time, ITS 2010 will also include
a doctoral symposium.

ITS will have four exciting tutorials in the following order on Sunday:

   1. Touch Technologies (by Florian Echtler)
   2. Software Development for Tabletops (by Ulrich von Zadow)
   3. Build your own multitouch pad (by Anne Roudaut)
   4. Qualitative Evaluation as an Interaction Design Approach (by
Sheelagh Carpendale)

ITS 2010 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

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:

* Applications

* Gesture-based interfaces

* Multimodal interfaces

* Tangible interfaces

* Novel interaction techniques

* Data handling/exchange on large interactive surfaces

* Data presentation on large interactive surfaces

* User-interface technology

* Computer supported collaborative systems

* Middleware and network support

* Augmented reality

* Social protocols

* Information visualizations

* Interactive surface hardware, including sensing and input
technologies with novel capabilities

* Human-centered design & methodologies
