Third Workshop on Engineering Patterns for Multi-Touch Interfaces

Workshop at Engineering Interactive Computing Systems 2012
Copenhagen, Denmark, June 25, 2012

Workshop Theme

Multi-touch gained a lot of interest in the last couple of years and the 
increased availability of multi-touch enabled hardware boosted its 
development. However, the current diversity of hardware, toolkits, and 
tools for creating multi-touch interfaces has its downsides: there is 
only little reusable material and no generally accepted body of 
knowledge when it comes to the development of multi-touch interfaces. 
This workshop series seeks a consensus on methods, approaches, toolkits, 
and tools that aid in the engineering of multi-touch interfaces and 
transcend the differences in available platforms.

The current body of work is mainly tailored toward a specific hardware 
platform, or relies on platform specific toolkits. In contrast with 
engineering WIMP (or single touch) interfaces, there is no established 
work on transcending the diversity in hardware and software platforms.


We invite everyone involved in the design and development of multi-touch 
interfaces, as well as tool builders and framework creators, to submit a 
2-4 page position paper or 4-6 pages short paper in ACM publication 
format [1]. A short paper describes experiences, ongoing work or results 
related to the workshop’s topic. A position statement describes 
requirements or issues the participant encounters when engineering 
multi-touch interfaces, as well as desirable solutions from the author’s 
point of view.

Papers are solicited on topics including, but not limited to:
- interface patterns for engineering multi-touch interfaces;
- design and development tools for multi-touch interaction;
- multi-touch architectural frameworks that transcend the variety of 
- requirements for supporting the design and implementation of 
multi-touch interfaces;
- experience reports on implementing multi-touch interfaces;
- best practices in building multi-touch interfaces;
- coping with differences in hardware touch detection, tracking 
technology, form factor and display sizes and orientation;
- replacing traditional input on multi-touch (mouse, keyboard ...).

Papers should include a short biography, describing the author’s 
background, experience and accomplishments with multi-touch interface 
engineering. We encourage providing an additional video demonstration 
for short papers. If accepted, at least one author must register for the 

To participate, please e-mail your paper to [log in to unmask] by 
May 5, 2012 [EXTENDED].
