CmIS workshop was a success!

I organized, together with Pedro Campos (Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute, Portugal) and Andrés Lucero (Nokia Research Center, Finland), the Collaboration meets Interactive Surfaces (CmIS) workshop. CmIS was co-located  with the Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces (ITS 2013) conference, and was held on October 6 in St. Andrews (UK). It was a success. The workshop involved 27 participants and encompassed 15 individual presentations of latest research work and 5 discussion groups focusing hot topics in the field.
