European Tangible Interaction Studio 2016
Winter School: 25-9 January 2016 in Fribourg, Switzerland

The second edition of the European Tangible Interaction Studio (ETIS) is a Winter School aiming at gathering together researchers interested in the domain of tangible interfaces. During this Winter School, participants will have the opportunity to attend several lectures held by the most important experts in tangible interaction coming from both industry and academia. Moreover, multiple workshops will be organized to provide the opportunity to collaboratively explore new concepts and build tangible interfaces using rapid prototyping kits that will be prepared by the organizers.


We are glad to announce that Prof. Patrizia Reuter (Eindhoven Technical University & University of Siena) will be among the speakers at ETIS 2016.

We are also excited to inform you that Dr. Sarah Gallacher (Intel) will give a talk and organize a workshop at ETIS. Intel will provide the kits for rapid prototyping and support the participants during the creation process (there is a fair chance that the new Intel Genuino 101 board will be available as international pre-view!).

Current list of speakers:
Dr. Patrick Reuter – University of Bordeaux & Inria Bordeaux Sud-Ouest
