Brighton, UK
Twitter: @ACM_SUI
FB: SpatialUserInteraction

Full and Short papers deadline: June 30th 2017

We have some exciting news for SUI 2017. The best full and short papers will be granted the possibility to present again at ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces 2017 (ISS), which will be held immediately after SUI (also in Brighton).

This year, Alex Schwartz, CEO of Owlchemy Labs, of Job Simulator fame, will give a keynote titled “Intuitive Spatial Interactions in VR”. More info at:

We invite you to participate in the ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction 2017 (SUI) in Brighton, UK. We seek unpublished papers documenting original research contributions, practice and experience, or novel applications, from all areas of spatial user interaction. User interface evaluations are strongly encouraged for every publication in this venue. Specific topics of interest include:

  • Spatial interaction techniques
  • Spatial user interface metaphors
  • Spatial input devices and technology
  • Interaction on spatial, stereoscopic, and 3D displays
  • Evaluation methods for spatial user interaction
  • Collaborative interaction in 3D space
  • Design and user experience (UX) for spatial user interaction
  • Applications of human spatial perception to interaction
  • Adaptive and perceptual-inspired spatial user interaction
  • Applications of spatial UIs, such as games, entertainment, CAD, education
  • Gesture-based spatial interaction
  • Tangible spatial user interaction
  • Multi-touch technologies for spatial user interaction
  • Desktop interfaces for spatial interaction
  • Multisensory and other novel forms of spatial user interaction

The symposium invites full and short paper submissions. Papers are of variable length, with length based on the required detail for the contribution.

  • Full papers (normally 8 pages, maximum 10) should describe research or design work within the scope of spatial user interaction.
  • Short papers (up to 4 pages) should address the same topic, but may include preliminary results or conceptual ideas.

Submitted papers should be anonymous for the double blind reviewing process, led by an international program committee. Submissions must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere and must not be submitted or under review by any other publication venue during SUI 2017’s reviewing period.

All submissions should be prepared in the ACM SIG Proceedings format ( Supplementary videos are strongly encouraged, but not required. Submissions should address one or more of the topics above within spatial user interaction. Unlisted but strongly related topics are also welcome.

Accepted work will be archived in the ACM Digital Library, and will be provided as open-access for the first month following the symposium. Please note that at least one author of each accepted submission will be required to register to present at the symposium. If no author is registered by the early registration deadline, the accepted work will be withdrawn from the proceedings and digital libraries.
