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 07, 2017       Application and paper submission deadline
April 28, 2017        Notification of acceptance
May 10, 2017        Registration deadline
June 19-23, 2017     ETIS Workshop, Luxembourg (last day in Saarbrücken)

====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 level.
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)
• Prof. Dr. Albrecht Schmit (University of Stuttgart)

More to be announced soon.

====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  

Applications are welcome via e-mail to [log in to unmask] by April 7,  
2017. The email should include:

• Your current position and affiliation
• One paragraph describing your current research/work in TUI
• A proposal for a talk of 20 minutes +10 minutes for discussion (optional)
• A proposal for a half-day workshop (optional)

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 [log in to unmask] Papers should be formated  
according to the sigchi 2016 template and should not be anonymized.

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,  
• 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.
