The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) will host the 3rd
European Tangible Interaction Studio (ETIS) from June 19th – 23rd 2017.

ETIS website:

====Important dates====
April 14, 2017     Application and paper submission deadline (Deadline
May 2, 2017          Notification of acceptance
May 10, 2017        Registration deadline
June 19-23, 2017     ETIS Workshop, Luxembourg (last day in Saarbruecken)

====Aims of the summer school====
Tangible interaction is a research field addressing areas at the border of
the physical and the digital. Nowadays many researchers, designers,
developers and artists work in this area and a vast range of products and
applications are designed and produced accordingly. Besides, many research
projects are funded through research funds at a European and international
The aim of this meeting is to gather young European researchers in our
field, to get them in touch with internationally renowned researchers and
to establish networks for their future. This summer school is a follow-up
of the previous editions held in Bidart (2013) and Fribourg (2016) and will
be a unique opportunity to train in the field of tangible interaction and
to discuss your research with professors and other young researchers. In
particular, we encourage the participation of researchers with different
backgrounds from both academic and applied research. Indeed, the studio
will include voices from enterprises and private research institutions
working on the field of tangible interaction. We aim to provide
participants with useful insights for applied research possibilities, in
order to bring tangible interaction principles out of the lab, in the
everyday use.
Senior researchers from the industry and internationally known professors
will discuss several topics related to tangible interaction from their
different points of view. During ETIS 2017, the young researchers will have
the opportunity to present their research, receive feedback, and enjoy
practical activities for designing and developing tangible user interfaces.
The studio will cover several aspects of tangible interaction related to
prototyping and digital fabrication, wearables, Internet of Things, 3D
interfaces, mixed and augmented reality, and other related domains.
There is a lot of room for informal exchange and discussion. The focus of
ETIS 2017 will be on meeting interesting people in a friendly, inspiring,
and multicultural atmosphere.

====Invited speakers (confirmed)====
• Dr. Martin Hachet (INRIA, Bordeaux)
• Dr. Wilko Heuten (OFFIS, Oldenburg)
• Mr. Olivier Raulot (iNUI, Luxembourg)
• Prof. Dr. Albrecht Schmidt (University of Stuttgart)

====How to participate====
The target audience of the studio is PhD students, post-doctoral
researchers, Master Students, academic and industrial researchers and
developers. The maximum number of participants admitted to the ETIS is 30.

Applications are welcome via e-mail to [log in to unmask] by April 14, 2017.
The email should include:

• Your current position and affiliation
• One paragraph describing your current research/work in TUI

See below for information about how to submit proposals for talks or

Participants will be selected according to the order of registration, and
the quality of the submitted proposition.

====Call for contributions====
Junior Scientists but also practitioners, engineers and designers are
invited to propose a talk or a workshop about their research in the field
of tangible interaction including mixed/augmented reality, organic user
interfaces, or physical computing.

Please submit a short paper (2-4 pages including references) about your
talk or workshop to Easychair: Papers should be
formatted according to the sigchi 2016 template and should not be

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Research in tangible interaction: prototyping and digital fabrication,
wearables, Internet of Things, 3D interfaces, mixed and augmented reality,
and physical computing;
• Theoretical foundations, frameworks, and concepts of TUI;
• Design implications for tangible interaction (guidelines, methods,
lessons learned);
• Technologies, tools and toolkits for TUI (e.g. speech/gesture-based
interfaces, haptic feedback);
• Case studies (method, design, results) with TUI;
• Applications and evaluation of tangible interaction in different domains
(education, health, entertainment, art, cooperative work, assessment);
• Tangible interaction for various target groups (children, elderly, people
with disabilities).
Submitted papers will be reviewed by experts in the field with regards to
the relevance and quality of the work, and their potential to enable
substantive research discussions.

ETIS 2017 will have CEUR workshop proceedings. After ETIS, we will have an
extra CFP with extended versions for a special issue at the i-com Journal
of Interactive Media:
