We welcome you to the ACM International Conference on Interactive Surfaces and Spaces. As an annual conference series starting in 2006, ACM ISS (formerly known as ACM ITS, International Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces) 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 our conference identity since 2016.
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 ISS steering committee members are looking forward to your contribution and participation at the ISS.
We are soliciting expressions of interest for chairing and hosting the ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (formerly ACM Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces) conference in 2019 or 2020.
ISS is a successful ACM conference series that consistently attracts over 200 attendees and high-quality paper submissions. It will celebrate its 13th edition in Tokyo, Japan, during November 25-28 2018 (see https://iss.acm.org/2018/).
At this stage we invite lightweight expressions of interest from academic organizers. If you are interested in hosting ISS we just need you to reply with an e-mail that indicates:

After your e-mail we will follow up about further details (e.g., putting together an organizing team), selecting dates, etc. Please get back to us by responding to the ACM ISS steering committee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
