SmartObjects 2019 - 7th Workshop on Interacting with Smart Objects

in conjunction with EICS 2019, Valencia, Spain
18 June 2019

There is an ongoing trend on embedding computing and communication capabilities into everyday objects, turning them into smart objects. Examples range from smart (tangible) objects over smart cars to even large-scale urban infrastructures. Other recent examples deal with the fabrication of smart objects, smart sensory augmentation, and smart spaces. This workshop will focus on how the intelligence situated in these smart objects can be harvested to provide more efficient and enjoyable interaction possibilities for the users. The underlying research fields pose unique challenges and opportunities for designing the interaction with such devices.


We seek high-quality contributions that explore the combination of intelligent interaction with the specific characteristics of smart objects. Topics include but are not limited to:

• technology and models required for enabling the interaction with smart objects
• engineering of smart objects
• context-awareness
• multimodal interaction
• self-explanatory smart objects
• fabrication of smart objects
• smart sensory augmentation and smart spaces
• smart cars
• embodied and tangible interaction
• accessibility through smart objects
• intelligibility of smart objects
• user studies and evaluation techniques
• novel interaction concepts for smart objects
• privacy and trust aspects of smart objects

Submission Guidelines

We invite submissions as position papers (up to 6 pages, excl. references) that describe a motivated opinion or viewpoint on interaction with smart objects, identify an open issue or important problem, or presents work in progress. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three peers. Besides based on general contributions, submissions will also be selected on their potential to foster discussions. All submissions should be prepared according to the ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format and submitted in PDF through the workshop management system.


All accepted submissions will be made available for workshop participants only. In addition, we invite every accepted submission to appear in our proceedings published through The authors retain copyright. Thus, papers can be submitted for other venues that allow this. Please note that at least one author must register for the workshop.
