TS 2012 is a premier venue for presenting research in the design and use 
of new and emerging tabletop and interactive surface technologies. 
Workshops organizers will select a topic of interest and manage 
submissions and reviews for proposals (workshop participants should 
submit their proposals by October 1). Authors are welcome to submit any 
topic of interest, some suggestions include:

*  Multitouch on mobile devices
*  Large (wall-sized) surfaces
*  Surfaces in public spaces, workplaces, homes
*  Surfaces in domain specific environments (e.g. safety critical, 
education, games)
*  Information or Scientific Visualization on Tabletops
*  Works in progress
*  ... and other exciting topics!

The workshop chairs are looking for leaders in interactive surface 
topics to run workshops that will last 4 hours in length and occur the 
day before the conference starts. We request a short 1-2 page proposal 
in the ITS posters format. For submission details visit: 

Please submit your proposal and questions to the tutorial chairs by 
*July 31, 5pm pacific standard time (PDT)*.


The ITS demo session provides an interactive forum for authors to 
present research prototypes and work-in-progress to conference attendees 
and receive feedback from the leading experts in interactive surface 
research. Both independent demonstrations and those accompanying 
accepted papers and posters are welcome. At the conference, we want the 
ITS participants to literally get in touch with your demos with the goal 
of having lively discussion and a hands-on experience.

Demo proposals should be submitted through our online system in the form 

* a video of up to 3 minutes length
*  a 2-page extended abstract that will be published in the ACM DL 
(Latex template, Word template) and
*  a supplemental text document describing the necessary spatial and 
technical requirements for your demo (template will be made available 

Please submit your video and PDF documents through the conference 
submission system by August 7, 2012.

For specific queries, please contact: demos at its2012conf.org


We invite researchers and practitioners to submit their work to the 
poster category of ITS 2012.

Posters provide an interactive forum for authors to present research 
prototypes and works in progress to conference attendees. Posters 
provide the opportunity for researchers to get feedback on early-stage 
work, and to discuss potential collaborations in an informal setting 
during the conference.

Submissions should be in the form of a 4-page extended abstract. The 
posters themselves will not be submitted with the abstracts - instead 
they should be brought to the conference by the author.

The abstracts will be published in the main conference proceedings and 
will be included in the conference USB memory stick. They will also be 
placed in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to 
thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide.
Important Dates

*  August 7, 5 p.m. PDT: Submission deadline
*  September 10: Notification to authors
*  September 20: Camera Ready version due


The ITS Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet 
and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced 
Tabletop researchers in an informal and interactive setting. We will 
give preference to applicants beyond the proposal stage and well into 
their dissertation research. Each applicant should provide a short 
written paper (no more than six pages in ACM landscape format). This 
paper should describe ongoing work and might summarize the student's 
full dissertation work, or highlight a particular part in depth. In 
addition, each student is asked to present a poster describing his or 
her work to the full conference. Doctoral Symposium papers will be 
published in the ITS conference companion distributed at the 
conference.*Accepted authors will have free registration to the 
conference*. The Doctoral Symposium will take place at the conference 
venue on Sunday, November 11, 2011 (for accepted authors only!).
