Tangible and Embedded Interaction 2009
IMPORTANT - REGISTRATION FOR TEI'09 IS NOW CLOSED
Please see the
registration page for details.
We are happy to announce that TEI’09 will be held in
Cambridge, UK on February 16-18, 2009.
TEI'09 is the third international conference dedicated to
presenting the latest results in tangible and embedded
Computing is progressively moving beyond the desktop into
new physical and social contexts. One key area of innovation
has been around tangible computing, which pushes the
user interface beyond the digital into the physical world by
means of mobile devices, graspable interfaces, physical
computing, and interactive surfaces. A closely related topic
is that of embedded interaction where the everyday
objects and environments we interact with are computationally
augmented in new ways. Designing such systems requires
interdisciplinary thinking. Their creation must not only
encompass software, electronics, and mechanics, but also the
system's physical form and behaviour, and its social impacts.
The work presented at TEI addresses HCI issues,
design, user experience, tools and technologies, as well as
interactive art in the broad area of tangible computing and
embedded interactive systems. The intimate size of this
single-track conference provides a unique forum for exchange
of ideas through talks, interactive exhibits, demos, posters,
art installations and performances.
The conference will be chaired by Nicolas Villar
and Shahram Izadi from Microsoft Research Cambridge.
The program co-chairs are Mike Fraser,
from the University of Bristol and
Steve Benford, from the
University of Nottingham.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the conference chairs
or Shahram Izadi.
