Dear friends of TEI,

***Sorry for cross-posting***

TEI 2021 invites proposals for one-day Studios and Workshops. These 
events will take place on Sunday, the 14th of February, 2021. Studios 
can either be online, take place in Salzburg, Austria, or use a hybrid 
format (see

Studios are a format unique to the TEI conference, providing researchers 
the opportunity to deeply engage with the materials, methods and 
processes used in their research. Traditionally, studios provide 
hands-on experiences during which participants are introduced to new 
technologies, materials, prototypes, design approaches, et cetera.


Submission deadline October 16, 2020, midnight AoE
Notification of acceptance November 13, 2020,  midnight AoE
Camera-ready deadline tba
Conference dates February 14-17, 2021

Studios will take place at the Center for Human-Computer Interaction, 
where many prototyping facilities are available (electronics lab, 
industrial sewing/overlock machine, wood workshop, etc.), and a Fablab 
is situated next door (which houses 3D printers, laser cutters, reflow 
ovens, etc.). We encourage authors of Studio proposals to take advantage 
of these accommodations. Please contact the studio chairs for inquiries 
about the capacities of the location and support on how to tackle the 
possibility of a hybrid or virtual conference.

On the 15th anniversary of the TEI conference, we also want to encourage 
authors to consider Studios that act as a platform for examining theory 
and methodology related to tangible, embodied and embedded interaction. 
We invite researchers from all career stages to discuss and develop a 
specific topic of relevance to the TEI community. These Studio proposals 
should contain a clear theoretical grounding around a problem or 
opportunity, describe a plan for applied engagement with the topic, and 
highlight how the outcome will provide important insights for TEI 
researchers and practitioners. Proposals need to clearly specify how 
such Studio results will be communicated and archived. Please contact 
the studio chairs for discussing dissemination options at the 

Organizers should consider how their proposal would be impacted by 
potential travel restrictions. All proposals should specify if remote 
participants can attend the proposed event, and if the full event can be 
held remotely. We fully understand that studio submissions may rely on 
in-person interaction with tools and materials, which is why we ask 
authors of proposals to consider this possibility up-front. Furthermore, 
we encourage authors to regularly review the TEI website for possible 
updates around the conference organisation. For any questions and 
clarifications around the call, the conference, or other things that may 
influence submission or attendance, always feel free to get in touch 
with the chairs!
