The Tech Notes track focuses on exclusively strong technical engineering
contributions. EICS Tech Notes are 6-page papers (excluding the reference
list) that focus specifically on system contributions and technical work,
including (but not limited to):


   Infrastructures and architectures
   (high-level toolkits, frameworks, networking infrastructures, the big
   systems picture)

   Technical realizations of specific interaction techniques
   (e.g., sensing & recognition, computer vision implementations, rendering

   Engineering of physical interactive systems
   (e.g., toolkits for physical computing or fabrication, hacking or
   modding of machinery for interactive purposes)

   Computational constructs
   (e.g., optimization methods, mathematical modelling of HCI systems,
   model-driven UI design)

   Specification and verification
   (e.g. language representations for HCI, formal approaches, optimization
   methods, semantic models, testing / checking interactive systems)

Tech notes can be submitted through the Precision Conference System:
Important Dates


   Submission deadline: 12/03/2021

   Notifications: 16/04/2021

   Camera-Ready: 30/04/2021


Tech Notes is a venue created to elaborate on the technical aspects of
research work, which would typically only be a short part of a longer
article. The presented research can be related to previous publications,
however, the tech note should present additional technical details and
reflections that are not covered in the original publication(s). Authors
are encouraged to refer to previously published research papers and
elaborate on technical components or discuss specific technical
implications of their previous work. Tech Notes will be judged on their
technical merits and relevance to interactive systems concerns. The focus
lies specifically on elucidating technical details of complex interactive
systems. Tech Notes require an illustrative example of the system. They do
not include formal evaluations or user studies.

Tech Notes are published as a 6-page paper in the standard ACM SIGCHI format
<> (excluding references). In line with recent
policies by ACM regarding publishing software and data artifacts in the ACM
Digital Library (, authors are
strongly encouraged to provide supplemental material. This could include
additional diagrams detailing the technical contribution, (online) demos,
links to source code repositories, videos, or example applications. We
suggest, wherever applicable the paper to be accompanied by a (max)
one-minute video presenting the technical contribution. The URL of the
video must be mentioned in the paper itself. We also highly encourage
authors to share a public repository of their software.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Tech Notes, Full Papers and Late-Breaking

EICS Tech Notes are not journal articles that describe the full cycle of a
research project (concept, implementation, evaluation, reflection), but are
focused technical engineering research contributions. Tech Notes do not
require a formal evaluation nor an in-depth reflection on related work, but
can focus on very specific implementation details that are novel and
interesting to the EICS community. Thus, the reflection of the related work
should target in clarifying the technical novelty of the Tech Note.

EICS Tech Notes do not describe work-in-progress, as they require a novel
technical contribution to be finalized and completely described within the
space of the Tech Note. They are more similar to a traditional four-page
note than to a work-in-progress extended abstract. Late-Breaking Results
are intended for eliciting useful feedback on early-stage work, that can
benefit from discussions with colleagues in the EICS community.

Why should I submit an EICS Tech Note?

EICS Tech Notes aims to be the primary submission venue for impactful
technical engineering work. EICS Tech Notes is a high-quality engineering
venue that is complementary to the main research-oriented track at EICS. It
shows new and exciting technical work of high relevance to the community.
The best Tech Notes will be awarded with the Tech Note Award.

EICS Tech Notes provides a platform to publish and present detailed
technical engineering aspects of HCI research. We specifically encourage
authors of previous papers to elaborate on technical challenges, technical
innovations or frameworks / systems / approaches / toolkits / algorithms
that enable them to conduct novel HCI research.

How are EICS Tech Notes disseminated?

EICS Tech Notes get a presentation slot at the conference and will be
published as 6-page papers in the ACM Digital Library (excluding the
reference list).

How are EICS Tech Notes reviewed?

EICS Tech Notes will be reviewed by an international committee of leading
experts within the technical HCI, engineering and interactive systems
communities. Because there is a difference in scope between tech notes,
full papers, and late-breaking results, reviewers will use specific
criteria to identify high-quality tech notes, including technical novelty,
research impact, and the potential to enable new HCI innovations.
