Call For Papers

The annual meeting of the German community on tangible interaction and mixed realities is taking place at the Mensch & Computer conference in Munich. Terms such as “tangible interfaces“ and “embodied interaction“ reflect a progressive process in which computers disappear in our everyday objects, “intelligent“ artifacts populate our environment and the entire body is engaged in interaction with computational applications. Novel entwinements of virtual and physical realities pose new challenges and questions on designing and appropriating information technology and digital media. This extends the scope of applications and allows for special development potentials in the world of learning, working, playing and living.

Organized by the special interest group of the German Informatics Society “Be-greifbare Interaktionen“, the workshop intends to stimulate discussion on this subject matter on the basis of current research examples. The workshop brings together scientists and practitioners and offers an interdisciplinary forum for design, computer science, engineering, arts, psychology, pedagogy and media theory. We welcome theoretical discussions as well as reports of practical implementations and system demonstrations.

Topics of Interest:

- Design of tangible interfaces
- Research on Tangible Interaction, Mixed-Reality, Embodied and Mobile Interaction
- Empirical studies on the effect of tangible interfaces
- System and Prototype demonstrations

The workshop is a full day event on August 31st and part of the Mensch & Computer Conference 2014 in Munich, Germany.


Researchers, practitioners and artists are invited to submit full papers (max. 6 pages) or poster papers (2-4 pages) through the online system: . Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the programme committee and accepted ones will be published in the workshop proceedings. Due to the conference framework the workshop takes place, paper submissions are only accepted, and respectively approved contributions must be held, in German.
