I am happy to announce the ACM ITS 2010, held on November 7th - 10th, 2010, in Saarbrücken, Germany.

ITS 2010 is the premier venue for presenting research in the design and use of new and emerging interactive surface technologies.

As a young community, we embrace the growth of the discipline in a wide variety of areas, including innovations in ITS hardware, software, interaction design, and studies expanding our understanding of design considerations of ITS technologies and of their applications in modern society. ITS 2010 will bring together top researchers and practitioners who are interested in both the technical and human aspects of interactive tabletop and surface technologies.

It is our hope that we will be able to achieve increased synergy of approaches between the disciplines engaged in the research in the area of interactive tabletops and surfaces, Design, HCI, UbiComp, Psychology, MobileHCI and other related fields. More directly, we intend to encourage immediate interdisciplinary collaboration on future research topics. Young scholars and Ph.D. students are especially encouraged to submit papers and participate in the doctoral colloquium. If you have any question, please let us know.

This year we have also a mentor program:

To help those with less experience in academic publication, ITS 2010
offers the help of our two Mentors Chairs. The mentoring program is
intended primarily for authors from non-academics, including industry.

Two types of help are available from the mentor: assistance in framing
and composing your research paper (early feedback), and help and
feedback reviewing an already completed paper (later feedback). In
either case, the mentor will help frame your work in context of other
related work, and make meaningful suggestions to improve the quality
of your contribution. Both types of mentorship have the same
submission deadline.

Call for Participation: Papers and Notes

The use of interactive surfaces is an exciting and emerging research area. Display technologies, such as projectors, LCD and OLED flat panels, and even flexible display substrates, coupled with input sensors capable of enabling direct interaction, make it reasonable to envision a not-so-distant future in which many of the common surfaces in our environment will function as digital interactive displays. ITS brings together researchers and practitioners from a variety of backgrounds and interests, such as camera and projector based systems, new display technologies, multi-touch sensing, user interface technologies, augmented reality, computer vision, multimodal interaction, novel input and sensing technologies, computer supported cooperative work (CSCW), and information visualization.

The intimate size of this single-track symposium provides an ideal venue for leading researchers and practitioners to exchange research results and experiences. We encourage submissions on (but not limited to) the following topic areas as they relate to interactive tabletops and surfaces:

* Applications
* Gesture-based interfaces
* Multi-modal interfaces
* Tangible interfaces
* Novel interaction techniques
* Data handling/exchange on large interactive surfaces
* Data presentation on large interactive surfaces
* User-interface technology
* Computer supported collaborative systems
* Middleware and network support
* Augmented reality
* Social protocols
* Information visualizations
* Interactive surface hardware, including sensing and input technologies with novel capabilities
* Human-centered design & methodologies

Submissions

We invite paper submissions of two kinds:

* Papers (10 pages) and
* Notes (4 pages)

Papers must present original, highly innovative, prospective and forward-looking research, possibly in one or more of the themes given above. Notes must also report novel and complete research, but where the scope and scale of the contribution is more focused and succinct than papers.

Submissions must be submitted as a single PDF file in the ACM format through the submission system. A template for submissions will be linked to from here in a little while.

All accepted submissions will be presented at ITS 2010 and appear in the ITS proceedings and be archived in the ACM Digital Library. The submission deadline is: June 23, 2010

For all deadlines see the important dates section.

Yes, that would be great. It would be also great to promote this call on your blogs and websites to make ITS 2010 to a big event.
