Just over a week to go for TEI WIP submissions
TEI 2013 Work in Progress Submission
10-13 February, 2013: TEI Conference in Barcelona, Spain
TEI 2013 is the Seventh International Conference on Tangible, Embedded,
and Embodied interaction. The work presented at TEI focuses on physical
interaction with computing technology and addresses design challenges,
theories, experiences, systems, and new developments. 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
Work in Progress papers should be submitted as a PDF attachment to an
email sent to <[log in to unmask]> with the subject
"TEI WIP submission". The deadline for Work in Progress submissions is
November 26th, 11:59 pm (UTC+1) 2012.
Work in progress submissions should be between two and eight pages and
present high quality original work relevant to the TEI community that is
not yet complete enough to warrant submission as a TEI Paper.
Submissions should still make some contribution to the body of knowledge
represented by the TEI community, whether realized or promised.
Works in Progress can be presented at the conference as a demo, or a
poster, or both a demo and a poster. A significant benefit of presenting
a Work-in-Progress is that it enables discussions between the authors
and conference attendees that can help in further developing or
completing the work for later submission. Summaries of completed work or
work that has been published elsewhere are not appropriate as a
Work-in-Progress submission. As for the TEI Papers track, submissions
may include, but are not limited to, the following types of work:
• Case studies and evaluations of working deployments
• Analysis of key challenges, proposals of research agenda
• Relation of tangible embodied and embedded interaction to
• Programming paradigms and tools, toolkits, software
• Novel interactive uses of sensors & actuators,
electronics & mechatronics
• Design guidelines, methods, and processes
• Novel application areas, innovative solutions/systems and
• Theoretical foundations, frameworks, and concepts
• Philosophical, ethical & social implications
• Interfaces specific in form and context to particular cultures
• Usability and enjoyment
• Advantages, weakness, affordances of tangible, embedded and
• Learning from the role of physicality in everyday environments
• Tangible interfaces for children and learning
• Embodied interaction, movement, and choreography of
• Role of physicality for human perception, cognition and
• Teaching experiences, lessons learned, and best practices
• Standardization, production, and business applications
• Tangible interaction for artistic, expressive and musical
• Tabletop, surface, and multi-touch interaction
Submissions should be between 2 and 8 pages in ACM Extended Abstract
format. They must be in PDF file format. A Work in Progress paper may be
presented as a demo, or a poster, or both a demo and a poster.
The Work in Progress track has a juried review process. Submissions will
be reviewed by the programme chairs and potentially by external experts,
but in a less rigorous process that for the Papers track. Juried content
is not required to make the same level of lasting and significant
contribution to our knowledge and understanding as refereed content and
detailed feedback on submissions will not be provided.
Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the review
process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in
perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be
kept confidential until the start of the conference.
Please note that the maximum size of your submission should not exceed
5Mb. You should not send videos as email attachments, but we encourage
authors to embed links in submissions to online video content (e.g.
Youtube or Vimeo).
One author of each accepted submission must register for the conference
before the early registration deadline (January 7th, 2013) in order for
the Work in Progress paper to be presented at TEI 2013.
Work-in-Progress submissions will be published on the conference website
and USB stick, but are not part of the TEI 2013 proceedings.
