This paper lays the foundations for the development of a Tangible User Interface Management System (TUIMS) It presents a paradigm for representing TUIs, the TAC paradigm, which identifies the core components of TUIs. Building upon the TAC paradigm, it introduces TUIML, a high-level description language for TUIs. The concept of TUIMS is proposed and a built proof of concept prototype is discussed.
