-  Submission is open from now. 
-  Notification of Acceptance on December 1st.  
-  The conference will take place 15-17 February 2007 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, followed with a half-day trip to Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Accepted papers will be published in the printed conference proceedings, and will also through cooperation with ACM be available electronically in full-text in ACM's Digital Library.

 =================== DESCRIPTION ===================

TEI'07 is the first international conference dedicated to research in tangible and embedded interaction, and held in cooperation with ACM SigCHI. Work addressing HCI issues, design, use context, tools and technologies, as well as interactive art works are all welcome, including especially interdisciplinary submissions across these themes. 

The proceedings will be available in printed form at the conference and be published electronically through the ACM Digital Library. 

The conference will be held this year as the 14th Annual Mardi Gras conference at Louisiana State University, to be followed with an optional day trip to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. 

The conference attempts to bring together the new field of tangible and embedded interaction, providing a meeting ground for the diverse communities of research and practice involved with tangibles -- from computing, hardware, and sensor technology, to HCI, interaction design, and CSCW, to product and industrial design and interactive arts. We invite submissions from all of these perspectives, be they theoretical, conceptual, technical, applied, or artistic. The conference is designed to provide appropriate presentation forms for different types of contributions including talks, interactive exhibits, demos or performances, and posters. We invite submissions in these different areas integrated within a single-track conference. Interdisciplinary submissions are particularly welcome.

=================== TOPICS FOR SUBMISSIONS ===================

Authors are invited to submit high-quality papers about original research that contributes to advancing the field. Appropriate topics include but are not limited to (for more details see our website):
	◦ 	Case studies and evaluations of working deployments
	◦ 	Analysis of key challenges, proposals of research agenda
	◦ 	Relation of tangible and embedded interaction to other paradigms
	◦ 	Programming paradigms and tools, toolkits, software architectures
	◦ 	Novel interactive uses of sensors+actuators, electronics+mechatronics
	◦ 	Design guidelines, methods, and processes
	◦ 	Novel appl. areas, innovative solutions/systems and industrial apps
	◦ 	Theoretical foundations, frameworks, and concepts
	◦ 	Philosophical, ethical & social implications
	◦ 	Interfaces specific in form and context to particular cultures
	◦ 	Usability and enjoyment
	◦ 	Advantages of these kinds of systems, weaknesses, affordances
	◦ 	Learning from the role of physicality in everyday environments
	◦ 	Embodied interaction, movement, and choreography of interaction
	◦ 	Role of physicality for human perception, cognition and experience
	◦ 	Teaching experiences, lessons learned, and best practices
	◦ 	Standardization, production, and business applications

=================== SUBMISSIONS ===================

 Papers must present original material and will be reviewed rigorously by at least 3 reviewers in a double-blind process. Papers in all areas will be reviewed and assessed based on the contribution they make to the field, its significance, originality, novelty, creativity, rigour, quality of thought, presentation and organisation.

Submission are to be submitted electronic, as pdf using the ACM SIGCHI format which can be downloaded from: Submissions and reviews are handled through the online submission/reviewing tool EDAS. Detailed information is available on the submission page of

Papers can vary in length, using the ACM SIGCHI format and have either 8, 4, or 2 pages (including references, appendices, and figures). Submissions must be anonymous.

All papers, independent of length, will undergo the same review process and be published in the proceedings. Length should match the contribution, and the general criteria hold for all papers.

Papers can be presented at the conference as a talk, a poster, an exhibit or demo, regardless of length. E.g. an exhibit of a novel design can be described and reflected in an 8 page paper, while a talk on a novel sensor technique might fit 2 pages - or vice versa. Authors can indicate what type of presentation they prefer or suits their type of contribution when using the submission webpage. The TPC might suggest a different format of presentation based on the contribution and type of the paper. If authors prefer to present an exhibit (or demo, installation, performance), they may add one page with a sketch as last page to their submission. This will not count as part of your paper

In case of acceptance, at least one author must register for the conference in order for the final paper version to be published in the conference proceedings.
