Third CfP: TANGIBLE, EMBEDDED AND EMBODIED INTERACTION (TEI) 2012
February 19-22, 2012 at Queen's Human Media Lab in Kingston, Ontario,
Canada.
http://tei-conf.org/12

IMPORTANT DATES
1st September 2011: Papers, Studio Proposals
1st November 2011: Graduate Consortium, Art Exhibits, Design Challenge (CFP
to follow)
6th January 2011: Early registration deadline
19th-22nd February 2012: TEI Conference in Kingston, Ontario, Canada

TEI 2012 is the sixth international conference dedicated to presenting
cutting edge research in tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction. The
work presented at TEI addresses design challenges, theories, experiences,
systems, and new developments, with specific emphasis on all the physical
aspects of human interaction with computing technology. The intimate size of
this single-track conference provides a unique forum for exchanging ideas
and presenting innovative work through talks, interactive exhibits, demos,
hands-on studios, posters, art installations and performances. The theme of
this year's conference is "fold unfold". We particularly encourage
submission on the theme of Organic User Interfaces (OUI): user interfaces
with non-flat, flexible or actuated displays (http://www.organicui.org)

Research on tangible, embodied and embedded interaction has gained
substantial visibility and activity over the past decade, under many
different names and research topics and disciplines, including tangible
interfaces, graspable interfaces, physical computing, tangible interaction,
IT product design, appliance design and interactive spaces. It has also been
associated with larger research areas, including mixed, virtual, and
augmented reality and ubiquitous and pervasive computing. TEI brings
together this emerging field, providing a meeting ground for the diverse
communities of research and practice - from computing, hardware, and sensor
technology, to HCI, interaction design, and CSCW, to product and industrial
design and interactive arts. We invite submissions from all these
perspectives, theoretical, conceptual, technical, applied, or artistic. The
conference is designed to provide appropriate presentation forms for
different types of contributions. Accepted submissions of all types will be
included in the Proceedings as papers and will be integrated within the
single-track conference. Interdisciplinary submissions are particularly
welcome.

TOPICS for SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit high-quality work detailing original research
that contributes to advancing the field. Appropriate topics include but are
not limited to:

• Case studies and evaluations of working deployments
• Analysis of key challenges, proposals of research agenda
• Relation of tangible and embedded interaction to other paradigms
• Programming paradigms and tools, toolkits, software architectures
• Novel interactive uses of sensors+actuators, electronics+mechatronics
• Design guidelines, methods, and processes
• Novel application areas, innovative systems, industrial applications
• Theoretical foundations, frameworks, and concepts
• Philosophical, ethical & social implications
• Interfaces specific in form and context to particular cultures
• Advantages, weakness, affordances of tangible, embedded and embodied
interaction
• Learning from the role of physicality in everyday environments
• Embodied interaction, movement, and choreography of interaction
• Organic User Interfaces: flexible, non-flat or actuated display interfaces
• Role of physicality for human perception, cognition and experience
• Teaching experiences, lessons learned, and best practices
• Standardization, production, and business applications

PAPERS
http://tei-conf.org/12/Main/PapersSubmissions

Papers must present original material and will be reviewed rigorously by at
least three reviewers in a double-blind process. Papers in all areas will be
assessed on their contribution to the field. Papers are due 1st September
2011. Papers may be 2, 4 or 8 pages long in ACM SIGCHI format. All papers
will undergo the same review and publication process. The length must match
the contribution. Authors may propose the presentation format that they feel
best suits their contribution, which may include multiple presentation forms
(e.g. talk and demo). 8 page long papers will be presented as talks. Short
papers will be selected for presentation as a talk, demonstration, or as a
poster. Selected long or short talks will be invited for demonstrations. TEI
2012 remains committed to the principle followed in previous TEI conferences
- that TEI values all submissions equally.

One author of each accepted submission must register for the conference
before the early registration deadline in order for the final paper version
to be published in the conference proceedings. Papers will be published in
the ACM digital library. Please contact the program chairs Ylva Fernaeus,
Audrey Girouard and Sergi Jorda at [log in to unmask]
with questions about paper submissions. 

PROPOSALS for STUDIOS
http://tei-conf.org/12/Main/Studios

TEI 2012 also invites proposals for studios to be held in multiple tracks on
Tuesday, February 21st, 2012. Studios are participatory events that offer
novel practical experiences to conference attendees with diverse skills and
technical backgrounds. Studio topics can include the exploration of new
toolkits, prototype design techniques, and creative applications of emerging
or traditional materials. Studios can also tackle more research-focused
topics such new methodologies, emerging application areas, and theoretical
foundations. Studios should emphasize making, building, creating and
hacking. Organizers are encouraged to arrange for later publications of a
studio's creative output. Each studio should aim to host between 10 and 15
participants. Studio proposals are due 1st September 2012. Please contact
the studio chairs Nick Graham and Michael Horn at
[log in to unmask] with questions about studios
submissions.


EXPLORATIONS

TEI 2012 Explorations comprise several submission formats intended to
embrace and nurture contributions from a wide range of communities - such as
artists, designers and graduate students - as well as support the
publication of cutting edge research. TEI Explorations include the Graduate
Student Consortium and Art tracks as well as the Tangible Interaction Design
Challenge. The submission deadline for these tracks is 1st November 2011.
Full details will be confirmed in subsequent CfPs.
