Call for Participation: Demos, Art + Videos
ACM Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces (ITS) 2015
Funchal, Madeira, Portugal 
November 15-18, 2015

ACM ITS is the premier venue for research in the design, development and use of new and emerging interactive surface technologies. ACM ITS 2015 welcomes original, high-quality research and industry contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in the area of interactive surfaces (including tabletops, large displays, mobile, and mini devices). The conference embraces innovations in a wide variety of areas including design, software, hardware, understanding of use, and applications or deployments of interactive surfaces. This year’s event will be held at the Vidamar Resort Madeira hotel on the wonderful island of Madeira in Portugal. 

Call for Demos, Art + Videos:

The ITS Demo, Art + Videos session provides a great opportunity for authors to present their installations, exhibitions, prototypes, products and applications to conference attendees. We will provide a large area in which you will be able to showcase your best interactive experiences and commercial products. Our goal is to provide a highly interactive forum for lively discussions and hands-on experiences.

Copyright to ITS Demo, Art + Videos abstracts is retained by the authors, and the material from them can be used as the basis for future publications as long as there are "significant" revisions from the original. However, submissions that include an extended abstract will be included in the ACM Digital Library so other researchers are able to find, read, and cite them.

Important Dates:
