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

Interactive surfaces is emerging as an exciting new research
area. Display technologies coupled with input sensors capable of
enabling direct interaction are being experimented with and
embedded in tabletops, walls and floors to support a diversity
of collaborative activities. Research in this area covers the
development and use of display technologies, such as camera and
projector-based systems, new OLED flat panels, multi-touch and
tangible interfaces and novel input techniques together with user
studies both in the lab and the field. The 'Tabletops and
Interactive Surfaces' workshop is cross-disciplinary, spanning
computer science (HCI, CSCW, computer vision, augmented reality,
information visualization, graphics, and machine learning),
hardware engineering, optics, design, the social and cognitive

The intimate size of this single-track workshop provides an ideal
venue for researchers, developers and practitioners to exchange
research findings and implementation experiences. We invite
submissions on the following, but not exclusive, topics:

    * Applications
    * Augmented Reality
    * Computer Supported Collaboration Systems
    * Gesture-Based Interfaces
    * Information Visualization
    * Interaction Techniques
    * Lab and In-Situ User Studies
    * Middleware and Network Support
    * Multi-Modal Interfaces
    * Sensing and Input Technologies
    * Tangible Interfaces
    * User Interface 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 2-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:
