ACM ITS is the premier venue for research in the design, development and use of new and emerging interactive surface technologies. ACM ITS 2015 welcomes original, high-quality research and industry contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in the area of interactive surfaces (including tabletops, large displays, mobile, and mini devices). The conference embraces innovations in a wide variety of areas including design, software, hardware, understanding of use, and applications or deployments of interactive surfaces. This year’s event will be held at the Vidamar Resort Madeira hotel on the wonderful island of Madeira in Portugal.

Workshop: Cross-Surface: Interacting with Multi-Device Ecologies in the Wild

Cross-Surface 2015 is the first international workshop on interacting with multi-device ecologies “in the wild”. In this workshop, we will review and discuss opportunities, technical challenges and problems with cross-device interactions in real-world interactive multi-surface and multi-device ecologies.
