ACM ISS 2017 will be the 12th Edition of the International Conference on Interactive Surfaces and Spaces, and will be held in Brighton in the fall of 2017.
Academics, practitioners, and students meet each year at the ISS conference to discuss challenges and innovative solutions for interactive surface computing technologies. The conference covers the design, evaluation, and application of techniques for a wide range of interactive surface technologies, with a focus on interactive large displays, multi-touch smartphones and tablets, hand, arm, and whole-body interaction systems, smart project camera systems, multi-device systems, interactive everyday “things”, and interactive drones. ISS is also a forum for introducing next-generation surface technologies, such as water-based interfaces, floor- and room-based interfaces, and deformable interfaces. Conference proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library. ACM is one of the most important publishers of computing research in the world.
Supporting the event is an ideal way to demonstrate your organization's interest in and commitment to the field and to publicize this support to many leaders and students in the field. Sponsors also improve the quality of the conference. Three support levels (Champion, Benefactor, Donor) are available, as well as opportunities to support specific conference events. Sponsorship is very important to the conference. It is primarily used to permit a greater number of students to attend ISS at reduced fees without artificially increasing the general registration, and to allow student volunteers to receive complimentary registration. Sponsors are well recognized for their contributions, and benefit by increased brand recognition, exposure to emerging technologies and applications. Also, the conference attracts large numbers of extremely talented young researchers (students, postdocs, etc.) each year, providing strong talent recruitment possibilities. We detail the costs and benefits below.
We have 3 levels of sponsorship: Champion, Benefactor and Donor. In addition, there are a variety of opportunities to sponsor specific elements of the conference (and get further exposure for your company or organization). Details are below.
Packages are negotiable in regards to the items they include and can be adjusted to specific needs. Note that all amounts are listed in USD ($), but equivalents in other currencies are welcome.
Long-term sponsoring opportunities are also available for all the packages below. They include the same benefits and can be made through three different modalities.
