ACM ISS 2020 Tutorials Call for Participants!
Important Dates
Submissions: *August 7, 2020*, 5PM PDT
Notifications sent to Authors: August 21, 2020
Camera-Ready: September 9, 2020
Workshop day: November 8, 2020

ISS is a premier venue for presenting research in the design and use of new
and emerging *surface and space technologies*. Tutorials provide a broad
overview of particular topics in the area of Interactive Surfaces and
Spaces from recognized experts in the field.

We invite industry and academic leaders in interactive surfaces and spaces
technologies interested in leading a tutorial session at ISS 2020 to submit
a tutorial proposal following the guidelines below. Tutorials should focus
on topics relevant to the ISS community and can include but are not limited
to the following areas:

   - Architectural concepts and emerging trends
   - Immersive analytics and data physicalization
   - Museum and art installation trends
   - Interaction paradigms around large surfaces (tangibles, pen+touch,
   - New and emerging body and space sensing technologies
   - Overview of social protocols, presence, territoriality, and proxemics
   - Evaluation methods for surface applications
   - Multi-touch interaction with mobile devices
   - Large scale and outdoor interactive spaces (projected interfaces,
   drones, ...)
   - Feel, taste, smell and splash user interfaces on surfaces
   - ... and other exciting topics!

In particular, we invite tutorial organizers to *think creatively about how
tutorials can leverage the fact that ISS 2020 will be held as an online
conference*. We encourage tutorials that explore new ways of engaging the
ISS community that would not be possible in a traditional offline format.
Topics include but are not limited to:

   - Online tools and technologies
   - Demonstrating hardware setups and installations, exploring the ins and
   outs of setting up interactive spaces in our labs
   - Live coding and code demonstrations
   - The latest hardware and platforms (e.g. HoloLens 2, pen & touch, gaze
   trackers, LIDAR sensors, MaxMSP, P5.js)
   - Using online tools to scale tutorials (e.g. multiple camera angles for

Tutorials can run from *90 minutes* to a full day (the length is up to the
tutorial organizers).

Submitting a Tutorial Proposal

We request a short proposal (up to 4 pages, excluding references) in the
single-column ACM Master Article Submission Template
<>. Accepted
proposals will be part of the ISS conference proceedings and will be
available in the ACM Digital Library.
Please include the following information in your tutorial proposal

   - Title of the tutorial
   - Full contact information of all tutorial organizers and the main
   contact person (if there are multiple organizers)
   - Topics and objectives of the tutorial and how these are relevant to
   the ISS community
   - Description of planned hands-on activities and topics covered during
   the tutorial
   - *New:* A description of how the organizers plan to handle the online
   aspects of the workshop
      - Given the situation with COVID-19, the ISS 2020 conference will be
      - Please indicate how you aim to facilitate and support an engaging
      tutorial in an online format.
   - Short bio of the tutorial organizers
   Please include a single information page (in addition to the 4-page
   proposal) with the following information:
      - A maximum 100 words pitch advertising the aim and objectives to
      your tutorial
      - Proposed tutorial length (90 min, half day or full day)
      - Maximum number of tutorial participants

   Please submit your tutorial proposal using the ISS Precision Conference
   <> submission system by the deadline
   on *August 7, 2020*.
