INTETAIN 2009, Amsterdam, 22-24th June 2009 

Third International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for 

Interactive Entertainment

**********************************************************************

 

Second Call for Papers 

 

==================

==== OVERVIEW ==== 

==================

The Human Media Interaction (HMI) department of the University of Twente in the Netherlands and the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (ICST) are pleased to announce the Third International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment to be held on June 22-24, 2009 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 

 

INTETAIN 09 intends to stimulate interaction among academic researchers and commercial developers of interactive entertainment systems. We are seeking long (full) and short (poster) papers as well as proposals for interactive demos. In addition, the conference organisation aims at an interactive hands-on session along the lines of the Design Garage that was held at INTETAIN 2005. Individuals who want to organise special sessions during INTETAIN 09 may contact the General Chair, Anton Nijholt  ([log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> ). 

 

The global theme of this third edition of the international conference is "Playful interaction, with others and with the environment".

 

Contributions may, for example, contribute to this theme by focusing on the Supporting Device Technologies underlying interactive systems (mobile devices, home entertainment centers, haptic devices, wall screen displays, information kiosks, holographic displays, fog screens, distributed smart sensors, immersive screens and wearable devices), on the Intelligent Computational Technologies used to build the interactive systems, or by discussing the Interactive Applications for Entertainment themselves.

 

We seek novel, revolutionary, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:

 

== Supporting Technology ==

 * New hardware technology for interaction and entertainment

 * Novel sensors and displays

 * Haptic devices

 * Wearable devices

 

== Intelligent Computational Technologies ==

 * Tele-presence in Entertainment

 * (Collaborative) User Models and Group Behavior

 * Collaborative and virtual Environments

 * Brain Computer Interaction

 * Cross Domain User Models

 * Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality

 * Computer Graphics & Multimedia

 * Pervasive Multimedia

 * Robots

 * Computational humor

 

== Interactive Applications for Entertainment ==

 * Intelligent Interactive Games

 * Emergent games

 * Human Music Interaction

 * Interactive Cinema

 * Edutainment

 * Urban Gaming

 * Interactive Art

 * Comprehensive assisting environments for special populations 

     (handicapped, children, elderly)

 * Exertion games

 

===========================

==== SUBMISSION FORMAT ====

===========================

INTETAIN 09 accepts long papers and short poster papers as well as demo proposals accompanied by a two page extended abstract. Accepted long and short papers will be published in the new Springer series LNICST: Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering. The organisation of INTETAIN 09 is currently working to secure a special edition of a journal, as happened previously for the 2005 edition of the Intetain conference. 

 

Submissions should adhere to the LNICST instructions for authors, available from the INTETAIN 09 web site.

 

== Long papers == 

Submissions of a maximum of 12 pages that describe original research work not submitted or published elsewhere. Long papers will be orally presented at the conference.

 

== Short papers ==

Submissions of a maximum of 6 pages that describe original research work not submitted or published elsewhere. Short papers will be presented with a poster during the demo and poster session at the conference.

 

== Demos ==

Researchers are invited to submit proposals for demonstrations to be held during a special demo and poster session at the INTETAIN 09. For more information, see the Call for Demos below. Demo proposals may either be accompanied by a long or short paper submission, or by a two page extended abstract describing the demo. The extended abstracts will be published in a supplementary proceedings distributed during the conference.

==== CALL FOR DEMOS ====

========================

We actively seek proposals from both industry and academia for interactive demos to be held during a dedicated session at the conference. Demos may accompany a long or short paper. Also, demos may be submitted at a later deadline instead, with a short, two page extended abstract explaining the demo and showing why the demo would be a worthwhile contribution the INTETAIN 09's demo session.

 

== Format ==

Demo submissions should be accompanied by the following additional information:

 * A short description of the setup and demo (2 alineas)

 * Requirements (hardware, power, network, space, 

     sound conditions, etc, time needed for setup)

 * A sketch or photo of the setup

 

Videos showing the demonstration setup in action are very welcome.

 

== Review ==

Demo proposals will be reviewed by a review team that will take into account aspects such as novelty, relevance to the conference, coverage of topics and available resources.

 

== Topics == 

 * Topics for demo submissions include, but are not limited to:

 * New technology for interaction and entertainment

 * (serious) gaming

 * New entertainment applications

 * BCI

 * Human Music Interaction

 * Music technology

 * Edutainment

 * Exertion interfaces
