Dear Colleagues,
Apologies for cross postings.

The deadline for submissions to the CHI workshop “Internet of Tangible Things” has been extended to February 18th. 2018.
If you wish to participate to the workshop but you do not have time to prepare a submission or you need a deadline extension, please contact us at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

Workshop date: April 21, 2018
Workshop Location: CHI’18; Montreal, Canada. See:
Workshop web site:
Deadline for contributions (position papers/design portfolios/videos/etc.): 31 January 2018.
Participants notified of acceptance: 22nd February 2018
*Workshop description and activities *
The Internet of Tangible Things: Workshop on Tangible Interaction with the Internet of Things at CHI 2018 will explore future directions for coupling Internet of Things systems with tangible interfaces. Specifically, through ideation, prototyping and discussion, it will aim to answer the questions of a) what opportunities exist for tying together IoT infrastructure and tangible interaction b) how existing taxonomies and design principles for tangible interaction can be best applied to novel IoT systems and c) how these might change in relevance between application domains (e.g., interfaces in the home, environment, connected cities, healthcare, or education). The workshop will aim to foster lasting collaborations between researchers interested in the IoTT.

*How to join the workshop *
We invite position papers from researchers in the CHI and UbiComp communities interested in the theoretical basis, design, implementation, and evaluation of novel Internet of Tangible Things (IoTT) systems. Authors are asked to submit 4 page papers related to their work on IoTT systems in the SIGCHI Extended Abstract format. The workshop will aim to be interdisciplinary, bridging and synthesizing design, theoretical, and methodological contributions; given this, submissions in alternative formats, for example design portfolios or videos of demos, are also welcome.
Please send your submission via e-mail to the workshop chairs. You can submit your contribution by January 31 to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Participants will be selected based on the relevance of their submission to the IoTT.
PLEASE NOTE: All workshop participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the main conference. Please contact us at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
