5th Annual ACM Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2010

Submission DEADLINE for Posters, Demos, Tutorials & Doctoral Symposium
September 6th, 2010

Submission System is now open:

ITS 2010
November 7-10, 2010
Saarbrücken, Germany

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

Building on their success in previous years, ITS again features
tutorials, posters, and demonstrations tracks. For the first time, ITS
2010 will also include a doctoral symposium.

*** POSTERS ***
Posters provide an interactive forum for authors to present research
prototypes and work in progress to conference attendees. Submissions
should be in the form of a 2-page extended abstract describing the
poster. The posters themselves will not be submitted with the
abstracts - instead they should be brought to the conference by the
author. The abstracts will be published in the main conference
proceedings and will be included in the conference DVD. Authors of
accepted poster abstracts are responsible for preparing a poster to
display/demonstrate on site at the conference. Posters focus on visual
presentation and discussion between the author and attendees around
the poster.

Mark Ashdown and Michael Rohs (Posters Chairs)

*** DEMOS ***
The ITS demo session provides an interactive forum for authors to
present their work to conference attendees and receive feedback from
the leading experts in interactive surface research. Demos provide an
opportunity to interactively present research prototypes and
work-in-progress as well as your best demos of the last year. Both
independent demonstrations and those accompanying accepted papers and
posters are welcome. At the conference, we want the ITS participants
to literally get in touch with your demos. Our main goal is to provide
a forum for lively discussion and hands-on experience.
Demo proposals should be submitted through our online system in the
form of a video of up to 4 minutes length. In addition, a supplemental
text document is required describing your demo and the necessary
spatial and technical requirements. Please use the provided template
(the link will be provided soon) and submit a PDF accompanying your
video through the conference submission system.

The ITS Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet
and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced
Tabletop researchers in an informal and interactive setting. We will
give preference to applicants beyond the proposal stage and well into
their dissertation research. Each applicant should provide a short
written paper (no more than four pages in normal ACM format). This
paper should describe ongoing work and might summarize the student's
full dissertation work, or highlight a particular part in depth. In
addition, each student is asked to present a poster describing his or
her work to the full conference. Doctoral Symposium papers will be
published in the ITS conference companion distributed at the
conference. Doctoral Symposium will take place at the conference venue
on Sunday, November 7th 2010.

Tutorials range from general overviews of surface research to detailed
topics of interest. The tutorial chairs are looking for leaders in
interactive surface technology to run three tutorials that will run 1
hour in length and occur during the conference program. We request a
short 1 page proposal in the ITS papers and notes format
( Please indicate the

   * Topic of Tutorial
   * Relevance to Tabletop community
   * Nature of the tutorial, particularities
   * Bio of speaker

Please submit your proposal and questions to the tutorial chairs
