ACM TEI2021 is the 15th annual conference dedicated to presenting the latest results in tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction. The single-track conference will be held on February 14-17, 2021 in Salzburg, Austria.

The ACM International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction (TEI) addresses issues of human-computer interaction, novel tools and technologies, interactive art, and user experience. The work presented at TEI has a strong focus on how computing can bridge atoms and bits into cohesive interactive systems. The intimate size of this single-track conference provides a unique forum for exchanging ideas and presenting innovative work through talks and discussions, interactive exhibits such as demos and posters, hands-on studios, art installations and performances.

The theme for TEI2021 is The Art of Interaction, inviting all participants and in particular artists to speculate on a vision of how art impacts, inspires and shapes our research practice. We consider art and the artistic method an important aspect for tangible interaction design, ranging from physical to digital works across all genres, such as interactive installations, performance art, and tangible sculptures. TEI2021 will therefore focus on the further development of the art exhibition & performance track and foster the artistic method through a dedicated artist residency program in Linz and Salzburg.

In addition to the core research paper track, TEI2021 will continue the variety of additional submission and presentation formats from the previous years. This includes the new visual Pictorials publication format, as well as the option to submit work-in-progress developments. Junior researchers will have the opportunity to present and discuss their work during the Graduate Student Consortium, which will take place along with a variety of hands-on Studios on Sunday before the main conference. Students are also welcome to participate in the Design Challenge, which offers a prize to the best material design ideas. TEI2021 will award the best research papers, and also distinct those with a focus on diversity and inclusion.
