Dear Tabletop friends,

Notice that the submission deadline is extended to July 3, 2009.

Kind regards


*Extended Call for TIS 2009 Papers and Notes:  July 3, 2009*


4th Annual ACM Tabletops and interactive Surfaces (TIS) Conference
November 23V25, 2009
Banff, Alberta, in Western Canada

The ACM Tabletops and interactive Surfaces (TIS) Conference is a
premier 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 TIS hardware, software, interaction
design, and studies expanding our understanding of design
considerations of TIS technologies and of their applications in modern

Based on the overwhelming success of the previous Tabletop/TIS
workshops, TIS 2009 is introducing some new forums, including invited
Tutorials and Interactive Posters.

TIS 2009 will bring together top researchers and practitioners who are
interested in both the technical and human aspects of TIS technology.
On behalf of the conference organizing committee, we invite you to
begin planning your submissions and participation for this years

Call for Participation Details
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 surfaces in our
environment from tabletops, walls and floors will function as a
digital interactive display. This cross-disciplinary domain brings
together different technologies and backgrounds 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

The intimate size of this single-track symposium provides an ideal
venue for leading researchers and practitioners to exchange research
results and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions on
(but not limited to) the following topic areas as they relate to
interactive tabletops and surfaces:
E    Applications
E    Gesture-based interfaces
E    Multi-modal interfaces
E    Tangible interfaces
E    Novel interaction techniques
E    Data handling/exchange on large interactive surfaces
E    Data presentation on large interactive surfaces
E    User-interface technology
E    Computer supported collaborative systems
E    Middleware and network support
E    Augmented reality
E    Social protocols
E    Information visualizations
E    Interactive surface hardware, including sensing and input technologies
E    Human-centered design & methodologies

Papers/Notes: We invite paper submissions of two kinds: Papers (8
pages) and Notes (4 pages) describing original research on
investigations into tabletop and interactive surface based systems.
Papers must present original, highly innovative, prospective and
forward-looking research 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
Computer Science Press 8.511 inch two-column format (not longer than
eight pages in length for Papers and four pages in length for Notes).
All accepted submissions will be presented at TIS'09 and appear in the
TIS'09 proceedings and be archived in the ACM digital library.

Interactive Posters: Interactive Posters provide an interactive forum
for authors to present research prototypes and works in progress to
conference attendees. Extended abstracts describing the Interactive
Poster must be submitted as a single PDF file in 8.511 inch two-column
format (not longer than two pages in length). Interactive Poster abstracts
will not be published in the main conference proceedings, but will be
included in the adjunct CD.

Authors of accepted Interactive Poster abstracts are responsible for
preparing an Interactive Poster to display / demonstrate on site at
the conference.  Interactive Posters focus more on visual presentation
and discussion between the author and attendees around the poster.

Paper and poster submissions should use the TIS format. Templates can
be downloaded in PDF format, in Word format, in LaTeX format, and in
PS format from the conference website (
Electronic submissions can be made through the TIS 2009 PCS at
