The International Conference Tangible and Embedded Interaction (TEI) is the first conference with "tangible" in its title, motivated by the fieldâ€™s growth over the past decade. One of this research area's most fascinating features is the range of perspectives and disciplines, including HCI, the arts, design, technology, and architecture. TEI invites a multi- and interdisciplinary community to submit contributions from their specific viewpoints and approaches. It brings together artists who employ tangible media with computer engineers developing toolkits, physical appliance designers with researchers conducting user studies, and researchers exploring novel interface technologies with interaction designers who develop mixed-media systems.
