Academic and Application Papers (and Notes)

We invite paper submissions of papers (max. 10 pages) and notes (max. 4 pages) of two possible types: academic and application. Academic papers must present original, innovative, and forward-looking research. Application papers will successfully demonstrate how surface interaction has been applied to real world problems and usage contexts beyond research labs, but without necessarily including original software, hardware, interaction techniques, or a formal study. Submissions by industrial practitioners and researchers are welcome. Industrial submissions are encouraged to apply for paper guidance well in advance of the submission deadline if deemed necessary (write to For additional information on what is required from application papers and notes, please consult the specific Application Papers and Notes information page.

Notes (both academic and application) must also report complete work, but with a more focused and succinct contribution than papers. For more details on academic and application papers see:

Papers and notes must be submitted as a single PDF file in the ACM format through the submission system  (available May 1). When appropriate, authors are also encouraged to submit supplementary materials such as video or data.

Papers and Notes will undergo a high-quality peer-review process by a committee of recognised experts (see program committee members below) to be presented at the ITS conference, be included in the conference proceedings, and be archived in the ACM Digital Library. ITS does not accept submissions that were published previously in formally reviewed publications or that are currently submitted elsewhere. Papers and Notes go through the same review process.

ITS 2013 will have a “Best of ITS” awards program, in accordance with SIGCHI guidelines. Approximately 5% of submissions may receive “Honorable Mentions” and 1% may receive “Best Paper/Note” awards.
