10-13 February, 2013: TEI Conference in Barcelona, Spain

TEI 2013 is the seventh international conference on tangible, embedded,
and embodied interaction. The work presented at TEI focuses on physical
interaction with computing technology and addresses design challenges,
theories, experiences, systems, and new developments. The intimate size
of this single-track conference provides a unique forum for exchanging
ideas and presenting innovative work through talks, interactive
exhibits, demos, hands-on studios, posters, art installations and

Research on tangible, embodied and embedded interaction has gained
substantial visibility and activity over the past decade, under many
different names and research topics and disciplines, including tangible
interfaces, graspable interfaces, physical computing, tangible
interaction, IT product design, appliance design and interactive spaces.
It has also been associated with larger research areas, including mixed,
virtual, and augmented reality and ubiquitous and pervasive computing.
TEI brings together this emerging field, providing a meeting ground for
the diverse communities of research and practice - from computing,
hardware, and sensor technology, to HCI, interaction design and CSCW, to
product and industrial design and interactive arts. We invite
submissions from all of these perspectives: theoretical, conceptual,
technical, applied, or artistic. The conference is designed to provide
appropriate presentation forms for different types of contributions.
Accepted submissions of all types will be included in the Proceedings as
papers and will be integrated within the single-track conference.
Interdisciplinary submissions are particularly welcome.

This year TEI will be held in beautiful Barcelona, one of the world's
leading cities for tourism, gastronomy, commerce, education,
entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts.


Authors are invited to submit high-quality work detailing original
research that contributes to advancing this rapidly developing field.
Appropriate topics include but are not limited to:

• Tools to rapidly develop tangible, embedded and embodied user experiences
• Case studies and evaluations of working deployments
• Analysis of key challenges and proposals of research agendas
• Relation of tangible and embedded interaction to other paradigms
• Programming paradigms and tools, toolkits, software architectures
• Novel interactive uses of sensors+actuators, electronics+mechatronics
• Design guidelines, methods, and processes
• Novel application areas, innovative systems, industrial applications
• Theoretical foundations, frameworks, and concepts
• Philosophical, ethical & social implications
• Interfaces specific in form and context to particular cultures
• Advantages, weakness, affordances of tangible, embedded and embodied
• Learning from the role of physicality in everyday environments
• Embodied interaction, movement, and choreography of interaction
• Organic User Interfaces: flexible, non-flat or actuated display interfaces
• Role of physicality in human perception, cognition and experience
• Teaching experiences, lessons learned, and best practices
• Standardization, production, and business applications


Papers must present original material and will be reviewed rigorously by
at least three reviewers in a double-blind process. Papers in all areas
will be assessed on their contribution to the field. Papers are due on
the 6th August 2012. Papers may be 4 or 8 pages long in ACM SIGCHI
format. All papers will undergo the same review and publication process.
The length must match the contribution. Authors may propose the
presentation format that they feel best suits their contribution (short
or long talk, demo, interactive exhibit, or both talk and demo/exhibit).
TEI 2013 remains committed to the principle followed in previous TEI
conferences - that TEI values all submissions equally.

One author of each accepted submission must register for the conference
before the early registration deadline in order for the final paper
version to be published in the conference proceedings. Papers will be
published in the ACM digital library. Please contact the program chairs
Martin Kaltenbrunner, David Kirk and Paul Marshall at
[log in to unmask] with questions about paper


All work must be submitted electronically via the TEI 2013 Precision
Conference site at

You will have to follow the guidelines regarding paper formats and
submission categories at:


There will be a second submission opportunity for work in progress until
November 26th 2012. Selected works will be presented during dedicated
poster sessions at TEI 2013 but are not published in the conference nor
online proceedings.


TEI 2013 Explorations comprise several submission formats intended to
embrace and nurture contributions from a wide range of communities -
such as artists, designers and graduate students - as well as support
the publication of cutting edge research. TEI Explorations include the
Graduate Student Consortium and Art tracks as well as the Tangible
Interaction Design Challenge. Full details will be confirmed in
subsequent calls for papers at
