ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction (SUI) 2015
Co-located with the 42nd International Conference and Exhibition on
Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH)
Los Angeles, CA (USA) Aug 8-9, 2015

We cordially invite you to participate in the ACM Symposium on SUI 2015.The ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction (SUI) 2015 is the  third international symposium focused on the user interface challenges that appear when users interact in the space where the flat, two-dimensional, digital world meets the volumetric, physical, three-dimensional (3D) space we live in. This considers both spatial input and 3D output, with an emphasis on the issues around interaction between humans and systems.

***************************** Register now for ACM SUI 2015! ***************************** 
ACM member, non-member, and student rates available!
*Registration Rates: If due to SIGGRAPH activities or other events, you are only able to 
attend one day, please contact the general chair at abanic at to inquire about 
availability of one-day rates.
*The hotel block rate is also still available at $169/night though Monday July 3, 2015.

Find registration, hotel block, and program information available on the website:

Due to the advances in 3D technologies, spatial interaction is now more relevant than ever. Powerful graphics engines and high-resolution screens are now ubiquitous in everyday devices, such as tablets and mobile phones. Moreover, new forms of input, such as multi-touch, finger and body tracking technologies are now easily available. In this environment, spatial UIs are transitioning out of the research community and game industry. More and more commercial 3D systems with spatial interaction capabilities exist, many priced at the consumer level. Until now, the challenges, limitations, and advantages of using this third dimension for human-computer interfaces have not been well understood. These questions will only become more relevant as the
associated technologies continue to cross the barrier towards wide adoption.

The goal of the symposium is to provide an intensive exchange between industrial and academic researchers working in the area of spatial user interaction and to foster discussions among participants. ACM's Special Interest Groups on Graphics and Computer-Human Interaction (SIGGRAPH and SIGCHI) co-sponsor the event. The two-day symposium will be held in 2015 in conjunction with ACM SIGGRAPH 2015, and will take place prior to the conference.

General Chair
- Amy Banic, University of Wyoming, USA
