CALL FOR PAPERS
=======================================================================
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Goal:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The goal of this workshop is to draw attention to the emerging field of
smart material interfaces. This field takes advantage of the latest
generation of engineered materials that has a special property defined
"smart". Smart materials are capable of changing their physical
properties, such as shape, size and color, and can be controlled by
using certain stimuli (light, potential difference, temperature and so
on). The workshop aims at stimulating research and development in
interfaces that make use of these smart materials, and it will provide
examples of state-of-the-art design of smart material interfaces, using
different modalities of interaction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Topic Keywords:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Smart material interface, Reality-based interface, Tangible interface.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Topics of interest:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
We invite original contributions in a variety of areas related to
interaction design and development of interfaces that makes use of
SMART MATERIALS. Main topic of interest is the application of smart
materials in designing and building interfaces that communicate
information to the user - or allow the user to manipulate information -
using different modalities provided by the material's properties.

- Reality-based interfaces
- Tangible Interfaces
- Programmable matter
- Electronic textiles, computational textiles, smart textiles
- Robotics
- Relevant developments in materials science, mechanical engineering,
  chemistry, biological engineering, nanotechnology, electrical engineering,
  textile engineering, and other fields, coupled with thoughtful speculation
  about applications
- ...

We strongly encourage submissions with related demo.

ABOUT SMART MATERIAL INTERFACES
=======================================================================
With the use of smart materials, SMI attempts to overcome the
limitation of traditional and tangible interfaces. SMI focuses on
changing the physical reality around the user as the output of
interaction and/or computation as well as being used as input device.
SMI promotes a tighter coupling between the information displayed and
the display itself by using the tangible interface as the control and
display at the same time - embedding the information directly inside
the physical object. It uses the physicality of the object as a way to
deliver information.
Utilizing smart materials' properties, SMI can support cohesive
interaction by maintaining both channels (input and output) on the same
object of interaction. The interaction constructed in this way will
grant the user a continuous perception of the object and of the output.
