Call for Papers

==================
==== OVERVIEW ====
==================
The Human Media Interaction (HMI) department of the University of Twente in the Netherlands and the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (ICST) are pleased to announce the Third International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment to be held on June 22-24, 2009 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

INTETAIN 09 intends to stimulate interaction among academic researchers and commercial developers of interactive entertainment systems. We are seeking long (full) and short (poster) papers as well as proposals for interactive demos. In addition, the conference organisation aims at an interactive hands-on session along the lines of the Design Garage that was held at INTETAIN 2005. Individuals who want to organise special sessions during INTETAIN 09 may contact the General Chair, Anton Nijholt (a.nijholt@ewi.utwente.nl).

The global theme of this third edition of the international conference is “Playful interaction, with others and with the environment”.

Contributions may, for example, contribute to this theme by focusing on the Supporting Device Technologies underlying interactive systems (mobile devices, home entertainment centers, haptic devices, wall screen displays, information kiosks, holographic displays, fog screens, distributed smart sensors, immersive screens and wearable devices), on the Intelligent Computational Technologies used to build the interactive systems, or by discussing the Interactive Applications for Entertainment themselves.

==== Journal Special Issue ====

In addition to the Springer LNICST proceedings, there are two journals willing to publish selections of the best papers of INTETAIN 2009 in a special issue: Entertainment Computing (editors in chief R. Nakatsu and M. Rauterberg) and the International Journal of Arts and Technology (editor in chief A. Vasilakos).

==== Invited Speakers ====

The conference will host several invited talks. Among the invited speakers are Prof. Dr. Antonio Camurri and Prof. Dr. Matthias Rauterberg.

==== Topics ====

We seek novel, revolutionary, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:

== Supporting Technology ==

===========================
==== SUBMISSION FORMAT ==
===========================
INTETAIN 09 accepts long papers and short poster papers as well as demo proposals accompanied by a two page extended abstract. Accepted long and short papers will be published in the new Springer series LNICST: Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering. There are two different journals willing to publish a special issue devoted to the conference, as happened previously for the 2005 edition of the Intetain conference. The choice of journal will be announced here shortly, but it is already certain there will be a special issue devoted to Intetain 2009 that will publish a selection of the best papers.

Submissions should adhere to the LNICST instructions for authors, available from the INTETAIN 09 web site.

== Long papers ==
Submissions of a maximum of 12 pages that describe original research work not submitted or published elsewhere. Long papers will be orally presented at the conference.

== Short papers ==
Submissions of a maximum of 6 pages that describe original research work not submitted or published elsewhere. Short papers will be presented with a poster during the demo and poster session at the conference.

== Demos ==
Researchers are invited to submit proposals for demonstrations to be held during a special demo and poster session at the INTETAIN 09. For more information, see the Call for Demos below. Demo proposals may either be accompanied by a long or short paper submission, or by a two page extended abstract describing the demo. The extended abstracts will be published in a supplementary proceedings distributed during the conference.

sound conditions, etc, time needed for setup)
* A sketch or photo of the setup

Videos showing the demonstration setup in action are very welcome.

== Review ==
Demo proposals will be reviewed by a review team that will take into account aspects such as novelty, relevance to the conference, coverage of topics and available resources.
