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 performances.

Research on tangible, embedded and embodied interaction has gained substantial visibility over the past decade, under many different names, 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 those working in computing, hardware, and sensor technology, to HCI, interaction design and CSCW, to product and industrial design and interactive arts. We invite submissions from all of 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.

This year TEI will be held in beautiful Barcelona, one of the world's leading cities for tourism, gastronomy, commerce, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts.

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

• Tools to rapidly develop tangible, embedded and embodied user experiences
• Case studies and evaluations of working deployments
• Analysis of key challenges and proposals of research agendas
• 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 in human perception, cognition and experience
• Teaching experiences, lessons learned, and best practices
• Standardization, production, and business applications

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 on the 6th August 2012. Papers may be 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 (short or long talk, demo, interactive exhibit, or both talk and demo/exhibit). TEI 2013 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 Martin Kaltenbrunner, Dave Kirk and Paul Marshall at with questions about paper submissions.

Submission instructions will appear on the conference website:

TEI 2013 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 26 November 2011; full details will be confirmed in subsequent calls for papers.
