We welcome you to the 2018 ACM International Conference on Interactive Surfaces and Spaces, taking place from November 25 to 28 in Tokyo, Japan. ACM ISS — growing out of the successful conference series ACM ITS — is now in its third year, and is quickly emerging as the premier venue for sharing research on topics such as large-scale interactive displays, 3D and spatial user interfaces, touch/gesture/whole-body interaction, tabletop computing, media facades, interactive architecture, virtual and augmented reality, and many others that lie within the overarching theme of interactive surfaces and spaces.

Our world is becoming increasingly saturated with interactive surfaces/spaces of various shapes and functions, which enable novel forms of interaction far beyond those offered on traditional platforms such as PCs and smartphones. The vibrant city of Tokyo, now undergoing a massive construction boom that is fast introducing new ISS technologies into the city landscape, will be the ideal host for bringing together a multidisciplinary group of researchers and innovators from around the world, to discuss how this exciting field of research will be shaping the world in the years to come.

We are looking forward to seeing you at ISS ’18 in Tokyo.
