The ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction (SUI) 2015 is the third
international symposium focused on the user interface challenges that
appear when users interact in the space where the flat, two-dimensional,
digital world meets the volumetric, physical, three-dimensional (3D) space
we live in. This considers both spatial input and 3D output, with an
emphasis on the issues around interaction between humans and systems.

Due to the advances in 3D technologies, spatial interaction is now more
relevant than ever. Powerful graphics engines and high-resolution screens
are now ubiquitous in everyday devices, such as tablets and mobile phones.
Moreover, new forms of input, such as multi-touch, finger and body tracking
technologies are now easily available. In this environment, spatial UIs are
transitioning out of the research community and game industry. More and
more commercial 3D systems with spatial interaction capabilities exist,
many priced at the consumer level. Until now, the challenges, limitations,
and advantages of using this third dimension for human-computer interfaces
have not been well understood. These questions will only become more
relevant as the associated technologies continue to cross the barrier
towards wide adoption.

The goal of the symposium is to provide an intensive exchange between
industrial and academic researchers working in the area of spatial user
interaction and to foster discussions among participants. ACM's Special
Interest Groups on Graphics and Computer-Human Interaction (SIGGRAPH and
SIGCHI) co-sponsor the event. The two-day symposium will be held in 2015 in
conjunction with ACM SIGGRAPH 2015, and will take place prior to the

We invite you to participate in the ACM Symposium on SUI 2015. We seek
original, unpublished papers documenting original research contributions,
practice and experience, or novel applications, from all areas of spatial
user interaction. User interface evaluations are strongly encouraged for
every publication in this venue.

The symposium solicits full and short papers. Papers are of variable
length, and paper length must be based on the weight of the contribution.
Fullpapers (normally 8 pages, maximum 10) should describe research or
design work within the scope of spatial user interaction. Short papers (up
to 4 pages) should address the same topic, but may include preliminary
results or conceptual ideas. Submitted papers should be anonymous for the
double blind reviewing process, led by an international program committee.
Submissions must not be previously published or accepted for publication
elsewhere and must not be under review by any other publication venue
during SUI 2015's reviewing period. All submissions should be prepared in
the ACM SIG Proceedings format:

Supplementary videos are strongly encouraged, but not required.

Submissions should address one or more of the following topics within
spatial user interaction. Unlisted but strongly related topics are also
- Spatial interaction techniques
- Spatial user interface metaphors
- Spatial input devices and technology
- Interaction on spatial, stereoscopic, and 3D displays
- Evaluation methods for spatial user interaction
- Collaborative interaction in 3D space
- Design and user experience (UX) for spatial user interaction
- Applications of human spatial perception to interaction
- Adaptive and perceptual-inspired spatial user interaction
- Applications of spatial UIs, such as games, entertainment, CAD, education.
- Gesture-based spatial interaction
- Tangible spatial user interaction
- Multi-touch technologies for spatial user interaction
- Desktop interfaces for spatial interaction
- Multisensory and other novel forms of spatial user interaction

For accepted papers and posters, at least one author must register for the
conference and present the work. If no author is registered by the early
registration deadline, the accepted work will be withdrawn from the
proceedings and digital libraries.

*Final approval for SUI 2015 is currently still pending.*
