July 10, 2009: Submission opens
January 25-27, 2010: TEI Conference at the MIT Media Lab

Call for Contributions
Computing is progressively moving beyond the desktop into new physical
and social contexts. Key areas of innovation in this respect are
tangible, embedded, and embodied interactions. These concerns include
the interlinking of digital and physical worlds and the computational
augmentation of everyday objects and environments.

TEI 2010 will uphold the successful single-track tradition of previous
TEI conferences. The new Studios, Explorations, and Graduate Student
Consortium forums are aimed to further establish the TEI conference as
a unique place for exchanging ideas and advancing the field of
Tangible, Embedded, and Embodied Interaction.

Submission Topics
Appropriate topics for submission (in each of the four categories)
include but are not limited to:

- Novel tangible interfaces, embodied interfaces, or embedded
interactive systems including: physical computing application,
whole-body interfaces, gesture-based interfaces, and interactive
- Provocative design work and interactive art
- Embodied interaction, movement, and choreography of interaction
- Programming paradigms and tools, toolkits, and software architectures
- Novel enabling technologies (e.g. programmable matter and transitive
- Interactive and creative uses of sensors, actuators, electronics,
and mechatronics
- Design guidelines, methods, and processes
- Applied design in the form of concept sketches, prototypes and products
- Role of physicality for human perception, cognition and experience
- The role of aesthetics in tangibles (e.g. decorative electronic wearables)
- Novel applications areas and innovative solutions
- Theoretical foundations, frameworks, and concepts
- Philosophical, ethical, and social implications
- Case studies and evaluations of working deployments
- Usability and enjoyment
- Teaching experiences, lessons learned, and best practices
- Sustainability aspects of the design and use of tangible systems

We invite four types of submissions
1) Papers:
We are happy to consider a variety of styles, such as academic papers,
design sketches, and descriptions of art pieces or installations. At
the conference, papers will be presented as a 5 or 15 minute talk, a
poster, or an interactive demo/exhibit/installation. All accepted
submissions will be included in the conference proceedings and
archived in the ACM Digital Library; of these a selection will be
invited for revision and inclusion in a special issue of IJART. For
more details and submission guidelines see:

2) Studios:
Proposals for hands-on workshops (to be held on Tuesday, January 26th)
that offer novel hands-on experiences to conference attendees with
diverse skills and technical backgrounds. Proposals can range from the
exploration of new development toolkits, to prototype design
techniques, and the use of emerging or traditional materials in
creatively applied ways. For more details and submission guidelines

3) Explorations:
Thought provoking, evocative, visually and sensually rich content
created by a diverse and broad group of practitioners, researchers,
artists, designers, inventors, students, and independents. Accepted
Explorations will be presented at the conference as a demo, a 5 or
15-minute talk, or a video poster. For more details and submission
guidelines see:

4) Graduate Student Consortium:
A chance for students to get feedback and advice on their final
terminal degree project including but not limited to those leading to
a PhD. We anticipate that financial support will be available for
graduate students to attend the GSC and TEI. ?For more details and
submission guidelines see:

Keynote speaker announced: Professor John Frazer
We are pleased to announce that Professor John Frazer of Queensland
University of Technology will be giving the opening keynote. Professor
Frazer pioneered the use of computers in architecture, created one of
the first tangible construction kits for creating virtual models, and
has been an inspiration for much work in our field. We are very
excited to have him at TEI!
