ISS is a premier venue for presenting research in the design and use of new and emerging surface and space technologies. Tutorials provide a broad overview of particular topics in the area of Interactive Surfaces and Spaces from recognized experts in the field.
We invite industry and academic leaders in interactive surfaces and spaces technologies interested in leading a tutorial session at ISS 2021 to submit a tutorial proposal following the guidelines below. Tutorials should focus on topics relevant to the ISS community and can include but are not limited to the following areas:
Depending on the final decisions regarding the conference format, authors will have the possibility to offer either virtual *or* hybrid tutorials. Nevertheless, we invite tutorial organizers to think creatively about how tutorials can leverage the fact that ISS 2021 will likely be held (primarily) as an online conference. We encourage tutorials that explore new ways of engaging the ISS community that would not be possible in a traditional offline format. Topics include but are not limited to:
We request a short proposal (up to 4 pages, excluding references) in the single-column ACM Master Article Submission Template. Accepted proposals will be part of the ISS 2021 conference proceedings and will be available in the ACM Digital Library.
Please include the following information in your tutorial proposal submission:
Please include a single information page (in addition to the 4-page proposal) with the following information:
Please submit your tutorial proposal using the ISS Precision Conference submission system by the deadline on August 6, 2021.
Tutorials will be reviewed by the tutorial chairs with the help of members of the ISS 2021 Tutorials Committee.
Upon acceptance, ACM will send you a copyright form, which you have to complete. Once completed, we will provide you with the new copyright information to be put on your paper. You can then submit the final version (including the new copyright notice) through the Precision Conference System by 15th October, 2021.
For each accepted tutorial, at least one author must register for the ISS 2021 conference. The authors are expected to lead/facilitate the accepted tutorial at the conference during their assigned tutorial session. Authors will also be required to upload a still image as well as a one-minute preview video that will both be used to advertise the demonstration before and during the conference.
More details will be provided in the following weeks regarding the organization during the conference and the adaptation that will be implemented due to the virtual or hybrid format of this year’s ISS conference.
