6th January 2011: Early registration deadline
19th-22nd February 2012: TEI Conference in Kingston, Ontario, Canada

TEI 2012 is the sixth international conference dedicated to presenting
cutting edge research in tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction.
The work presented at TEI addresses design challenges, theories,
experiences, systems, and new developments, with specific emphasis on
all the physical aspects of human interaction with computing technology.
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 performances. The theme of this year's conference is
"fold unfold". We particularly encourage submission on the theme of
Organic User Interfaces (OUI): user interfaces with non-flat, flexible
or actuated displays (http://www.organicui.org)

Research on tangible, embodied and embedded interaction has gained
substantial visibility and activity over the past decade, under many
different names and research topics and disciplines, including tangible
interfaces, graspable interfaces, physical computing, tangible
interaction, IT product design, appliance design and interactive spaces.
It has also been associated with larger research areas, including mixed,
virtual, and augmented reality and ubiquitous and pervasive computing.
TEI brings together this emerging field, providing a meeting ground for
the diverse communities of research and practice - from computing,
hardware, and sensor technology, to HCI, interaction design, and CSCW,
to product and industrial design and interactive arts. We invite
submissions from all these perspectives, theoretical, conceptual,
technical, applied, or artistic. The conference is designed to provide
appropriate presentation forms for different types of contributions.
Accepted submissions of all types will be included in the Proceedings as
papers and will be integrated within the single-track conference.
Interdisciplinary submissions are particularly welcome.


TOPICS for SUBMISSION


Authors are invited to submit high-quality work detailing original
research that contributes to advancing the field. Appropriate topics
include but are not limited to:


Case studies and evaluations of working deployments
Analysis of key challenges, proposals of research agenda
Relation of tangible and embedded interaction to other paradigms
Programming paradigms and tools, toolkits, software architectures
Novel interactive uses of sensors+actuators, electronics+mechatronics
Design guidelines, methods, and processes
Novel application areas, innovative systems, industrial applications
Theoretical foundations, frameworks, and concepts
Philosophical, ethical & social implications
Interfaces specific in form and context to particular cultures
Advantages, weakness, affordances of tangible, embedded and embodied
interaction
Learning from the role of physicality in everyday environments
Embodied interaction, movement, and choreography of interaction

Organic User Interfaces: flexible, non-flat or actuated display interfaces
Role of physicality for human perception, cognition and experience
Teaching experiences, lessons learned, and best practices
Standardization, production, and business applications

PAPERS


Papers must present original material and will be reviewed rigorously by
at least three reviewers in a double-blind process. Papers in all areas
will be assessed on their contribution to the field. Papers are due 1st
September 2011. Papers may be 2, 4 or 8 pages long in ACM SIGCHI format.
All papers will undergo the same review and publication process. The
length must match the contribution. Authors may propose the presentation
format that they feel best suits their contribution, which may include
multiple presentation forms (e.g. talk and demo). 8 page long papers
will be presented as talks. Short papers will be selected for
presentation as a talk, demonstration, or as a poster. Selected long or
short talks will be invited for demonstrations. TEI 2012 remains
committed to the principle followed in previous TEI conferences - that
TEI values all submissions equally.

One author of each accepted submission must register for the conference
before the early registration deadline in order for the final paper
version to be published in the conference proceedings. Papers will be
published in the ACM digital library. Please contact the program chairs
Ylva Fernaeus, Audrey Girouard and Sergi Jorda at
tei2012_programchairs@googlegroups.com with questions about paper
submissions.

PROPOSALS for STUDIOS


TEI 2012 also invites proposals for studios to be held in multiple
tracks on Tuesday, February 21st, 2012. Studios are participatory events
that offer novel practical experiences to conference attendees with
diverse skills and technical backgrounds. Studio topics can include the
exploration of new toolkits, prototype design techniques, and creative
applications of emerging or traditional materials. Studios can also
tackle more research-focused topics such new methodologies, emerging
application areas, and theoretical foundations. Studios should emphasize
making, building, creating and hacking. Organizers are encouraged to
arrange for later publications of a studio's creative output.Each studio
should aim to host between 10 and 15 participants. Studio proposals are
due 1st September 2012.Please contact the studio chairs Nick Graham and
Michael Horn at tei2012_studiochairs@googlegroups.comwith questions
about studios submissions.


EXPLORATIONS


TEI 2012 Explorations comprise several submission formats intended to
embrace and nurture contributions from a wide range of communities -
such as artists, designers and graduate students - as well as support
the publication of cutting edge research. TEI Explorations include the
Graduate Student Consortium and Art tracks as well as the Tangible
Interaction Design Challenge. The submission deadline for these tracks
is 1st November 2011; full details will be confirmed in subsequent CfPs.
