Dear colleagues,
ACM ISS 2020 Doctoral Symposium Call for Participants!

*ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (ACM ISS 2020)
<>* is the premier venue for research in the
design, development and use of new and emerging interactive surface
technologies and interactive spaces. ACM ISS 2020 welcomes original,
high-quality research and industry contributions that advance the
state-of-the-art in the area of interactive surfaces, interactive spaces
and novel interface technologies.

*The ISS Doctoral Symposium (ISS DS)
<>* provides Ph.D. students with
the opportunity to meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel
of experienced researchers in an informal and interactive setting.
Participants can expect the chance to present their dissertation research
in a supportive environment and to receive constructive expert and peer
feedback on their research topics and possible career paths in both
academia and industry. The Symposium aims to support community building by
connecting beginning and established researchers. The ideal time to apply
to participate in the DS is when some progress has been made in Ph.D.
research, and a path to completion is planned but could benefit from
outside opinions and refinement.

*Important Dates*
Submission deadline: *Friday, 28 August 2020*, 23:59 AoE
Author Notifications: Friday, 18 September 2020
Final Manuscript Submission: Friday, 9 October 2020

Precision Conference Submission:

Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in the ISS conference companion
proceeding and published in the ACM digital library. All research topics
suitable for the ACM ISS Conference and associated workshops are
appropriate for the DS. The DS chairs aim to achieve diversity among the
student participants, including diversity across research groups and
geographical areas. Refer to previous years’ proceedings for examples:

All Ph.D. students are welcome to apply regardless of whether they are
presenting at the main conference or not. Each submission will be reviewed
by the DS chairs to assess its suitability for the DS, as well as
additional expert reviewers when necessary.

Authors of accepted submissions will present their work in a dedicated
session and registration will be free.

Every submission should include:

an extended abstract - no more than six pages in pdf format according to
ACM Master Article Submission Template,
a poster design - A0 portrait format, also in PDF format,
a still image and a 30-second preview video that will both be used to
advertise the work before and during the conference.
a short video (optional) of up to 5 minutes long and at most 100MB in size
presenting the research displayed in the poster. You are encouraged to do
so if this clarifies the work, as is often the case in ISS interfaces.
PhD Students should submit an extended abstract that describes:

the problem that the thesis aims to address;
the broad approach and how it builds upon and goes beyond key relevant
previous work;
the work completed and the plan for the full dissertation work;
open questions/issues for discussion and/or what you want to get out of
participating in the symposium.
Completed work may be presented as an overview or highlighting a
particularly important part in depth.

Submissions must include a poster design (A0 portrait format), also in PDF
format. The doctoral symposium posters are intended for display along with
the other conference posters, and so should follow the same guidelines as
described here: ISS 2020 Posters.

The optional video presenting the research displayed in the poster must be
no longer than 5 minutes and must be less than 100 MB in size. Please make
sure that your video is playable on standard PC and Macintosh computers. We
recommend that you encode your video as an MP4 using the H.264 codec.

Be sure to have permission for all content, and use rights-free music
tracks in all submitted videos.

Submissions (both extended abstract and poster) should not be anonymised
for review.

Submissions must be submitted using the PCS system by the deadline: Friday,
28 August 2020.

More details will be provided in the following weeks regarding the
organization during the conference and the adaptation that will be
implemented due to the virtual format of this year’s ISS conference.
