Due to recent technological advances, it has become possible to integrate
sensor and actuator technologies as well as wireless communication in
everyday objects and environments. These developments open up a huge amount
of innovative interaction scenarios, involving new forms of user interfaces.
One kind that enables intuitive and natural interaction is tangible user
interfaces, referring to interfaces in which persons interact with digital
information through the physical environment. Tangible user interfaces are
not limited to the interactions of a single person, but can be used to
support interaction within - even dislocated - groups and smart artefacts.

Motivated by these developments, we see this second workshop as an
opportunity for exploring the potentials and perspectives of tangible
interaction for supporting collaborative work. Because of its
interdisciplinary topic, TICE 2007 aims at bringing together researchers of
various fields, including Human Computer Interaction, Tangible User
Interfaces, Computer Supported Collaborative Work, Sociology, Communication
Technologies, Embedded Systems and Ubiquitous Computing, to discuss key
issues, approaches, open problems, innovative applications, and trends of
tangible interaction in collaborative environments.

We welcome participants from all disciplines related to the topic of this
workshop, including but not limited to Tangible User Interfaces, CSCW and
Ubiquitous Computing environments. We invite original research papers and
experience reports in all areas of collaborative methods and systems
development. Additionally, position papers outlining novel research domains
and approaches are welcome. Topics of interest include but are not limited

Interaction design of collaborative tangible environments

    * Design process for embodied/tangible interaction
    * Guidelines, methods and methodologies for collaborative interaction
    * Concepts and patterns for physical and tangible interaction
    * Programming paradigms for building tangible environments
    * New paradigms for collaborative environments

Technological aspects of tangible user interfaces

    * Middleware, platforms and tools
    * Architectural concepts for enhancing tangible interaction in groups
    * Enabling technologies for instrumenting tangible artefacts
    * Innovative technological solutions

Case studies and application scenarios

    * Usability studies and evaluations of collaborative tangible
    * Visions and application scenarios
    * Security, privacy and trust in collaborative tangible environments
    * Collaborative tangible interaction for mobile users

Extended deadline for paper submission: March 4, 2007
Decision to paper authors: April 13, 2007
Camera-ready papers to IEEE: May 12, 2007
Advance registration with discount: June 1, 2007
WETICE 2007 workshops and on-site registration: June 18-20, 2007
Workshop chairs' final reports due to IEEE: July 9, 2007

Papers must be written in English, and they should not exceed 6 pages double
column, including references, figures and tables. Papers must be formatted
according to the IEEE formatting instructions (8.5"x11", two-column). The
papers have to contain original contributions not published or submitted
elsewhere, and references to related state-of-the-art work. Papers should
include a title, the name and affiliation of each author, an abstract of up
to 150 words and no more than eight keywords.

Each paper will receive at least three anonymous peer reviews by program
committee members or additional expert reviewers. The accepted papers and a
summary report of this workshop will be published in the post-conference
proceedings and directly mailed to the registered authors by the IEEE
Computer Society Press after the conference. In order to get an accepted
paper published in the proceedings, at least one author has to register and
present the paper at WETICE 2007. If enough high-quality papers are
submitted, we will contact a journal to explore the possibility of a special

Papers must be submitted anonymized in either PDF or PS format by email
([log in to unmask]) to the organizers. Make sure that the subject of
the email is "TICE 2007 Submission"! If you have further questions or
remarks, please do not hesitate to contact the workshop organizers.

Accepted and presented papers will be included in the post-conference
proceedings, published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
