ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (ISS), formerly known as Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces (ITS)

ACM ISS is the leading specialized venue for research and application of interactive surface and space technologies. The conference embraces innovation in a wide variety of areas, including design, software, hardware, understanding of use, theory, and commercial applications of interactive technologies that take place through surfaces (e.g., multi-touch) or in interactive spaces (e.g., in-air gesture tracking, attention-aware displays).

We provide a venue for researchers and practitioners of interactive technologies to learn about the state of the art and push it farther. We welcome general advances and tools (e.g., interaction models, toolkits and APIs), interaction techniques and systems, as well as applied knowledge in areas such as education, information visualization, traffic control, public spaces, entertainment, health, art, and office work.

Mar 24, 2017 The SIGCHI Student Travel Grant Program completes its first year

Have you ever read about a conference that you’d love to go to, but know that it’s impossible? Impossible because it’s overseas and your university doesn’t support overseas travel? Impossible because your research is in areas not covered by your advisor’s grants? Impossible because your institution has no travel funding whatsoever? Now there is hope.

Mar 24, 2017 Reviewer conduct

Recently SIGCHI has been asked to consider the conduct of reviewers for our conferences, including in the open reviewing process of alt.chi. In addition, committee members and the chairs of various tracks in our conferences often face these questions: what is appropriate behaviour and language for reviewing?
