2016 is coming to a close, and we are already looking very much into 2017, with a whole series of fantastic events coming up… and we can now reveal that Brighton will be the location for the 12th annual ACM International Conference on Interactive Surfaces and Spaces, from October 17-20, 2017. Plus, we have a number of the University of Sussex team that are part of the organising committee, including Professor Sriram Subramanian (General Chair) and Diego Martinez Plasencia (Workshop Chair), both from the Informatics based Interact Lab.
As the 12th event in an annual series starting in 2006, ACM ISS (formerly known as ACM ITS) is the premier venue for research addressing the design, development and use of new and emerging tabletop, digital surface, interactive spaces and multi-surface technologies. Over the years ISS has been a venue for research and applications of interactive surfaces as well as spaces, which has been acknowledged by the incorporation of ‘Space’ into the conference identity for 2017.
Interactive Surfaces and Spaces increasingly pervade our everyday life, appearing in various sizes, shapes, and application contexts, offering a rich variety of ways to interact. The vibrant city of Brighton will be the ideal host for bringing together researchers and innovators from a variety of backgrounds from all over the world…
We will keep you updated of key deadlines and opportunities around the ACM ISS 2017, but in the meantime, check out their main site for more details.
