The work presented at TEI focuses on physical interaction with computing
technology and addresses theories, design, user experience, interfaces,
interaction, and technical development. The intimate size of this
single-track conference provides a unique forum for exchanging ideas and
presenting innovative work through talks, demonstrations, posters, art
installations and performances, and participating in hands-on studios and

With the rise of DIY and maker culture and the acceptance of research in
tangible, embodied and embedded interaction, the TEI conference has gained
substantial visibility and activity over the past decade. It brings
together research disciplines, including tangible computing, physical
computing, speculative design, IT product design, appliance design, whole
body interaction, gestural interaction, embodied interaction, responsive
architecture, and responsive and interactive environments and spaces.
Application areas are diverse, including: public art and performance;
games; learning; planning; automotive, fashion, furniture, and
architectural design; music and sound creation; as well as productivity and
creativity tools in domains ranging from scientific exploration to
non-linear narrative. TEI brings together researchers, practitioners,
businesses, artists, designers and students in this emerging field,
providing a meeting ground for diverse communities of research and practice
including computing software, hardware, mechatronics, camera vision and
sensor technology; human computer interaction; interaction, interface and
experience design; computer supported collaborative work and learning;
product, industrial and architectural design; and interactive art and
performance. 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
ACM digital library proceedings.

Suggested Topics

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:

-- Conceptual explorations
-- Case studies and evaluations of field deployments
-- Analysis of key challenges and proposals of research agendas
-- Programming paradigms and tools, toolkits, software architectures
-- Design guidelines, methods, and processes
-- Novel interfaces, applications, or innovative systems
-- Theoretical foundations, frameworks, and concepts
-- Philosophical, ethical & social implications
-- 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 =====

Papers may be 2, 4 or 8 pages long in the two-column ACM SIGCHI format.
They must be in PDF file format. Regardless of length, a paper may be
presented as a poster, talk or demo. Length must match the contribution,
and the same general criteria hold for all papers. All papers will undergo
the same review process and be published in the same way.

All work – both papers and optional video illustrations – must be submitted
electronically via the TEI Precision Conference site. During submission,
authors may propose the presentation format that they feel best suits their
contribution, which may include multiple presentation forms. The available
formats include:
       -- Poster
       -- Demo
       -- Talk

Please do consider the most appropriate presentation format for your work.
TEI particularly encourages demonstrations and installations by publishing
their descriptions in the full conference proceedings.

There will be a second submission opportunity for work in progress.
Selected works will be presented during dedicated poster sessions at TEI.

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. If you have further questions about Papers for
TEI, contact the Program Chairs at program_chairs at tei-conf.org

Call for contributions
'Interpreting the Information Age': new avenues for research and display

November 3rd - 5th 2014
Science Museum, London

Dear colleagues,

In autumn 2014, the Science Museum will open a ground-breaking new
permanent gallery, Information Age. The gallery will expose, examine and
celebrate how information and communication technologies have
transformed our lives over the last 200 years. To mark this launch, the
Museum is hosting a three day conference which will discuss how the
history and material culture of information can be made relevant for
today's audiences, and celebrate the participation projects which have
supported the gallery's development.

We would welcome contributions from peers across the sector and beyond,
to support this exciting conference. The call for contributions can be
viewed at
ents/~/media/14CF9342DB8B459D92E3DAECBC3F5C39.ashx - please send all
proposals to research at sciencemuseum.ac.uk by Friday 25th April 2014.

        From: Stan Ruecker <sruecker at id.iit.edu>
        Subject: Conference on Experimental Interfaces for Reading 2.0

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for a one-of-a-kind
conference at the IIT Institute of Design in downtown Chicago, Sept 28-30,

*Experimental Interfaces for Reading 2.0*

*Call for Papers*
Proposals (abstracts only) due midnight (12.00am) CST June 30, 2014
Notification of acceptance: July 15, 2014

Digital documents are now ubiquitous, and the electronic book is a normal
part of many people’s lives. However, we have really only scratched the
surface of ways to help people read and make use of digital documents.

This conference will focus on some of the experimental human-computer
interfaces that have been designed and, in some cases, prototyped for use
with digital texts, images, and other media.

Featured events include:
•    Keynote lectures
•    Lightning talks, where authors present 10-minute versions of their
work, followed by a brief discussion (papers may be conceptual,
theoretical, application oriented, and more)
•    Poster and digital demos session

Possible topics include but will not be limited to:
•    ebooks
•    journals and monographs
•    interactive visualization
•    visual analytics
•    cultural analytics
•    social editions

We invite proposals in three categories – lightning papers, panels (4
papers or more), posters, and digital demos – that address the conference
topics and other issues pertinent to research in the area. Proposals should
indicate one of the above categories, and consist of:
- a title
- an abstract of approximately 250 words
- a list of works cited
- the names and affiliations of presenters and their coauthors.

We are pleased to welcome proposals in all languages of our community; note
that the chief working language of past gatherings has been English. Please
send proposals to INKEIDCONF at gmail.com

Selected presentations will be invited to submit by November 15 prepared
papers for a special issue of the journal *Interdisciplinary Science
Reviews* (ISR), with guest editor Stan Ruecker.

*INKE Interface Design*
The Interface Design (ID) team is part of a seven-year research project on
the future of reading called Implementing New Knowledge Environments
(INKE). The goal of ID is to produce and study experimental prototypes that
are contextualized by research done throughout INKE as well as by
environmental scans of existing systems. Different years have focused on
different research areas: interdisciplinary citation, corpora, the
scholarly edition, and journals and monographs.
