TEI'11 Work-in-Progress Workshop
Call for Papers!! 10th November 2010

The TEI Work-in-Progress workshop welcomes submissions about designing,
making, studying, exploring and experiencing of projects on tangible,
embedded and embodied interaction. The workshop aims to provoke, intrigue,
and inspire the TEI audience by sharing work-in-progress practice, late
breaking innovation, cutting-edge research, or controversial and compelling
work. It will provide a venue for eliciting feedback and fostering
discussions and collaborations among TEI colleagues. The TEI
Work-in-Progress workshop provides a chance for members of the TEI community
with common and diverse interests to meet in the context of a focused and
interactive discussion. The workshop provides an opportunity to showcase
exciting new work that is still at an early stage.

The TEI Work-in-Progress workshop provides an opportunity for both
practitioners and researchers to present a concise report of new findings or
other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant to the
Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction community.

With the TEI Work-in-Progress workshop, we want to provide a venue for new,
exciting, late breaking, cutting edge, unusual, challenging and
thought-provoking TEI work that might not otherwise be seen at the
conference. If you are working in an emerging area in TEI, submit your paper
to the TEI Work-in-Progress workshop. If you are interested in defining the
field, addressing basic or applied research, reflecting on design practice,
discussing new methodologies and emerging application ideas, presenting
innovations in sensing and actuation technologies, issues in TEI design and
pedagogical modules, or suggesting promising directions for future research,
submit your paper to the TEI Work-in-Progress workshop.
  TEI Work-in-Progress Workshop

The purpose of the TEI Work-in-Progress Workshop is to provide an intimate
atmosphere, in the form of a mini-symposium environment, to facilitate a
discussion between the participants of the workshop.

The difference between the TEI Work-in-Progress and the main conference
venues (e.g., papers, demonstrations) is that the work submitted to the
Work-in-Progress venue targets work that may not necessarily have been
completed or remains at an early stage. However, all submissions should make
some contribution to the body of TEI knowledge. This TEI Work-in-Progress
workshop aims to attract participation from a broad range of disciplines
covering a spectrum of topics and methodologies from all of TEI's
  Topics of Interest

The TEI Work-in-Progress workshop invites accounts of the design (rationale,
process, outcomes, and/or evaluation) of an innovative TEI application or
system, controversial ideas (just want to be cool?), novel prototypes (don't
look at the duct tape now), evaluations of systems, techniques, practices or
other phenomena (fly on the wall, or the Wizard of Oz) relevant to TEI,
inconclusive but valuable user studies and experiments (won't do that
again!), and anything else that can give a fresh perspective on TEI (twist
and shout? paradigm shift? methods and toolkits).

We invite submissions that explore technical or practical limitations in
technologies or methodologies (cool hacks for vending machines?); that
introduce promising, although currently non-viable techniques (hair and
tongue interaction, or vapor ware); that describe new processes, techniques,
or tools for use in interactive system design, development or deployment of
TEI projects; and that explore topics outside of current discussion
(human-soup bowl interfaces?).

Submissions of Work-in-Progress paper may also include reflections from
practice (this is not a bug, it's a feature), including lessons learned or
principles derived from real-word experiences and backed by
thought-provoking and well-substantiated analyses. We also welcome
submissions that discuss the latest progress in engineering design (dancing
in the rain with my solar activated boots?) or a new domain application
(looks Mom, no hands! My apron is frying the eggs) in our everyday lives or
space expedition (telemedicine and architectural robotics).

We invite work that would otherwise not have been presented at TEI 2011 to
be submitted to the TEI Work-in-Progress workshop. In essence, any
compelling paper that will provoke new ideas or stir up discussions within
the TEI community is appropriate for the TEI Work-in-Progress workshop.
  Submission Guideline

The TEI Work-in-Progress workshop paper submission should be a 6-page paper
prepared in the ACM Extended Abstract Format, submitted anonymously by
sending it to [log in to unmask] with the subject title <TEI
Work-in-Progress Submission>.

Please find the Extended Abstract format template at

Workshop papers would be reviewed and selected for presentation at the TEI
Work-in-Progress workshop on January 23rd, 2011. The TEI Work-in-Progress
workshop proceedings will be made available on the TEI 2011 web site.

TEI Work-in-Progress is a refereed but non-archival publication venue. Your
Work-in-Progress paper will have assigned page numbers in the workshop
digital proceedings. This will not be considered as a formal publication and
copyright will remain with authors. As such, the inclusion of the paper in
the digital workshop proceedings will not limit use of the material in
future publications including submitting a paper based on this work to other
conferences or journals.
