Call for Participation: Doctoral Symposium
ACM Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces (ITS) 2015
Funchal, Madeira, Portugal 
November 15-18, 2015

The ITS Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet
and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced
Interactive Surface researchers in an informal and interactive

Students should submit a paper that describes: the problem that the
thesis aims to address; the broad approach and how it builds upon and
goes beyond the most central of relevant previous work; the work
completed and the plan for the full dissertation work. Completed work
may be presented as an overview or highlighting a particularly
important part in depth.

Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in the ITS conference
companion distributed at the conference.

Each submission will be reviewed by both DS chairs to assess its
suitability for the DS, as well as additional expert reviewers when
necessary. This will be based on whether the work is sufficiently
mature to present but still early enough for the student to benefit
from the feedback and experience.

Accepted authors will present their work to the DS chairs and expert
reviewers and participate in an intensive workshop around ITS
research. The Doctoral Symposium will take place at the conference
venue on Sunday, November 15, 2015 (for accepted authors and invited
experts only!).

Important Dates

July 3, 2015, 5:00 p.m. PDT: Deadline for submissions
August 21, 2015: Notifications
September 11, 2015: Final Manuscript submission deadline
November 15, 2015: Doctoral Symposium Date (full day)


Every submission should include both an extended abstract (no more
than six pages in ACM landscape format) and a draft poster design. You
may also submit a video and you are encouraged to do so if this
clarifies the work, as is often the case in ITS interfaces. The
extended abstract should be in the SIGCHI extended abstract format.
You can download Word and LaTeX templates from the sigchi website.

Submissions should be converted to PDF and uploaded to the Precision
Conference system at by 5:00
p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on July 21st.

Submissions must include a draft poster design, also in PDF format.
This does not need to be a complete final version, but should give a
sense of what is to be presented and allow for constructive feedback
on the design and content. The doctoral symposium posters are intended
for display along with the other posters at the conference, and so
should follow the same guidelines as described here: Posters will be shown during the
main ITS poster session, and will not be used during the doctoral
symposium itself.

Submissions (both abstract and poster) should not be anonymised for review.
