With Scott Brown as a Local Chair and Deb Turnbull Tillman as an Arts Track Chair, we (along with General Chairs Lian Loke and Elise Van den Hoven) encourage everyone to put in a paper, WiP, studio or workshop, enter the student design challenge or join in the graduate consortium for feedback on your thesis from international experts in Tangible Embedded and Embodied Interfaces.
General information and the conference theme is below:
TEI 2020 is the 14th annual conference dedicated to presenting the latest results in tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction. It will be held 9-12 February 2020 in Sydney, Australia.
The ACM International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction (TEI) addresses issues of human-computer interaction, novel tools and technologies, interactive art, and user experience. The work presented at TEI has a strong focus on how computing can bridge atoms and bits into cohesive interactive systems. The intimate size of this single-track conference provides a unique forum for exchanging ideas and presenting innovative work through talks, interactive exhibits, demos, hands-on studios, posters, art installations, and performances.
Future Bodies, Future Technologies
Our theme for 2020 is Future Bodies, Future Technologies. The theme invites us to speculate on a vision of how technologies could interact and interweave with our future bodies. We consider technologies in the broadest sense: from ancient Greek definitions of skill, craft, and techniques to capabilities provided by practical application of computational, electronic and physical materials. The notion of bodies is an expanded one, encompassing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions, and how we are socially situated in a complex and contested set of realities and world views. Future Bodies, Future Technologies looks at the intermingling and reconfiguration of old and new, traditional and unorthodox, human and non-human towards new forms and possibilities. When designing the future of tangible, embedded and embodied interaction, we are also designing our bodies of the future.
