2021 ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces Conference (ACM ISS 2021). 

Hybrid Conference, November 14-17, 2021


Submission deadline for workshop proposals: August 13, 2021 (AoE)


We invite researchers and practitioners working in the field of interactive surfaces and spaces to submit workshop proposals for ACM ISS 2021. 

All workshops will take place on November 14, 2021, and run for either half a day or the full day. 

Workshops can be open (free to anyone who registered for it) or closed (attendees need to submit position papers). Please indicate the length and type of workshop in your proposal (see below). Accepted workshop proposals will be part of the ISS conference proceedings and available in the ACM Digital Library. 

ISS Workshops provide a unique opportunity to discuss ideas, challenges and new work around more specific topics in the area of interactive spaces and surfaces. We welcome proposals from a large variety of topics and domains. Example topics include but are not limited to the topics of the conference:

	• Technical and theoretical concepts for interaction:
		• Architectural concepts
		• Social aspects and protocols related to interacting with surfaces and spaces
		• Multi-modality 
		• Interactive 3D spaces (Mixed Reality and Augmented Reality, mid-air displays, ...)
		• Interactive architecture
		• Software engineering methods and frameworks
		• Interactive surfaces and spaces that support group work or social interaction
	• Interaction modalities:
		• Multi-touch interaction with mobile devices
		• Large display interfaces and multi-display environments
		• Gesture-based interfaces (hands, finger, body)
		• Interaction paradigms around large surfaces (tangibles, pen+touch, etc.)
		• Multi-modal interfaces
		• Tangible user interfaces
		• Body-worn devices
		• Different materials and form factors: curved, sand, water, …
		• Large scale and outdoor interactive spaces (projected interfaces, drones, ...)
	• Emerging trends:
		• New and emerging body and space sensing technologies
		• Feel, taste, smell and splash user interfaces on surfaces
		• Novel interaction techniques and paradigms
		• Beyond traditional surfaces: shape-changing and actuated surfaces, body-related, ...
	• Applicative domains:
		• Immersive analytics and data physicalisation
		• Museum and art installation trends
		• Hardware, including sensing and input technologies with novel capabilities, and results from maker communities
	• Design, experimentation and evaluation:
		• Evaluation methods for surface applications
		• Human-centred design and methodologies related to interactive surfaces and spaces
		• Empirical evaluations of novel interactive surfaces and/or spaces designs
		• Evaluations of deployed interactive surfaces and/or spaces in specific domains (public spaces, education, science, business, entertainment, health, art, homes, etc.)
	• ... and other exciting topics!


We request a short workshop proposal (up to 4 pages, excluding references) and an additional information sheet about the particular workshop requirements (1 page). Please format your submission using the single-column ACM Master Article Submission Template 

Please include the following information in your 4-page workshop proposal: 

	• Workshop title
	• Complete contact information of all workshop organisers and the main contact person
	• Topic, nature and goals of the workshop
	• Relevance of the workshop to the ISS community
	• Topics and planned activities covered in the workshop
	• A description of how the organisers plan to handle the online aspects of the workshop
		• Given the situation with COVID-19, ISS 2021 will most likely be hybrid (online and on-site).
		• Please indicate how you aim to facilitate and support an engaging workshop in a hybrid (synchronous) format. 
		• Example tools that could be used to facilitate online brainstorming include: Mural
	• Program Committee members for the workshop (if applicable)

Please include a single additional information page (in addition to the 4-page proposal) with the following information: 

	• A call-for-papers to your workshop (200 words max.). We recommend including specific instructions for the participants (e.g. required format of the position papers)
	• Link to your workshop website
	• Proposed workshop length (half-day or full-day)
	• Workshop type: open (only requires registration) or closed (requires the submission of a position paper)
	• Maximum number of participants

Please submit the workshop proposal using the PCS Submission System system by August 13, 2021 (AoE).  


Workshop submission deadline: August 13, 2021 (AoE)
