Call For Papers

The First IEEE International Workshop on 
Horizontal Interactive Human-Computer System (TableTop2006)

Adelaide, South Australia, January 5-7, 2006.

Support by IEEE, NICTA, University of South Australia

The use of the tabletop as an input/output device is an exciting
and emerging domain of computer systems. This is cross 
disciplinary domain. An example set of combining areas are as 
follows: projector based display systems, augmented reality, 
user interface technologies, multi-modal interactions, CSCW, 
and information visualisation.  

The purpose of the workshop is two-fold in bringing together 
leading researchers for following reasons:
1. presentation and exchange current results of ongoing investigations 
	* in a traditional oral presentation and
	* in a printed proceedings
2. a set of workshops culminated with a set of group reports
	* define the current state of the art,
	* map out the current coverage of the research domain, and
	* explore future research directions.

We encourage researchers and developers in the above mentioned 
fields to present in the following areas:

* Applications for tabletop displays
* Gesture-Based Interfaces for tabletop displays
* Multi-Modal Interfaces for tabletop displays
* Speech Interfaces for tabletop displays
* Tangible Interfaces for tabletop displays
* User Interface Technologies for tabletop displays
* Computer Supported Collaboration Systems for tabletop displays
* Middleware and Network Support for tabletop displays
* Augmented Reality for tabletop displays
* Social Protocols for tabletop displays
* Haptic Rendering for tabletop displays
* Information Visualisation for tabletop displays
* Horizontal Display Hardware

Paper Submission:

We invite submissions of two kinds:
	a) Regular research papers of up to 8 pages, describing 
	original research on investigations into horizontal 
	oriented user interface based (tabletop) systems. 
	b) Position papers of up to 2 pages, describing existing 
	work and work-in-progress, and addressing the three 
	workshop issues:

		1. How does your research define the current 
		state of art for horizontal interactive 
		human-computer systems?
		2. How does your research fit into the current 
		coverage of the horizontal interactive 
		human-computer systems research domain?
		3. What directions will you take your current 
		research into horizontal interactive 
		human-computer systems research? 

Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file in 
IEEE Computer Science Press format 
(described at 
Each paper will be peer reviewed by no less than three experts 
in the field. Accepted research and position papers will be 
included in the IEEE proceedings and presented in the paper 
sessions. The research and position papers with used as a 
foundation for the interactive collaborative sessions during 
the workshop addressing the following:
	* define the current state of the art,
	* map out the current coverage of the research domain, and
	* explore future research directions.

Submission details will be available on the web server at

	August 1, 2005:		Submission of papers.
	September 1, 2005:	Notification of acceptance
	September 27, 2005:	Camera-ready papers.
	January 5-7, 2006:	Tabletop2006 workshop, Adelaide.
