Sponsored by the ACM's special interest group on computer-human interaction
(SIGCHI), ITS has been established as a premier venue for research in the
design, development and use of new and emerging interactive surface
technologies. This year's conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel right
in the heart of beautiful Dresden, Germany from Nov. 16-19, 2014.

ITS 2014 welcomes original, high-quality research and industry
contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in the area of interactive
surfaces (including tabletops, large displays, mobile, and mini devices).
We embrace innovations in a wide variety of areas including design,
software, hardware, understanding of use, and applications or deployments
of interactive surfaces.

*Important Dates*

*General Information*

We invite submissions to the poster category of ITS 2014.

The ITS 2014 poster program offers an engaging venue to present and discuss
new and developing research. Posters provide the opportunity for
researchers to get feedback on early-stage work, establish potential
collaborations and discuss the burning issues in ITS 2014 in an informal
manner with the larger ITS community during the interactive poster session.

Work that is best suited for a poster submission includes - but is not
limited to - preliminary results, provoking and current topics, novel
experiences or prototypes that have not been fully tested but show great
promise, summaries of small-scale studies, design explorations of
interactive tabletops and surfaces.

In addition to a poster being displayed during ITS 2014, a poster
submission will feature

   - an extended abstract of the poster (max. 6 pages) published in the
   electronic conference proceedings in the ACM DL.
   - a plenary fast-forward session.

*Preparing the Submission*

All submissions must include an extended abstract and a draft poster. The
extended abstract has a maximum limit of 6 pages, including all figures and
references, and must be in the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format (LaTeX
Template, Word Template). It should include a concise description of the
idea, the results or findings, supporting imagery and figures, and a
discussion of the implications of the work to the selected domain. Full
literature searches are not expected, although relevant citations should be

The reviewing of abstract will be single-blind -- that is, your submission
should *not* be anonymized but reviewers will remain anonymous to you. As
there is only one week after notification to the final camera- ready
deadline, one cannot make larger changes until the camera-ready deadline.
Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers therefore must be
accompanied by a signed copyright form which will be provided to accepted
authors. All submissions conflicting with one or more guidelines will be
removed before the reviewing process as we could not assure an on-time

Your abstract should be submitted by August 29, 2014 to the Precision
Conference System. The submitted files must be in PDF format.


Posters abstracts will be reviewed by members of the ITS 2014 Poster
Session Committee. Confidentiality of submissions is 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.

*Presentation at the Conference*

Upon acceptance you should prepare your poster in order to effectively
communicate your research problem, techniques, and results. In particular
you should highlight what is novel and important about your work. For each
accepted poster, at least one author must register for the ITS 2014
conference. During a dedicated poster session, the author(s) will have the
opportunity to present and discuss their poster with conference attendees.

The posters themselves have no predefined formatting, but we recommend that
the posters dimensions are in A0 or similar format (84cm x 119cm / 33 x
47). The posters must be in portrait orientation. Authors are expected to
bring the accepted posters to the conference site with them and be present
throughout the poster session.

*Final Submission*

Subsequently, ACM will send you a copyright form, which you have to
complete. Once completed, we will provide you with the new copyright
information to be put on your paper. You can then submit the final version
(including the new copyright notice) through the submission system.
