Call for Papers
Interactive displays are increasingly distributed in a broad spectrum of everyday life environments: They have very diverse form factors and portability characteristics, support a variety of interaction techniques, and can be used by a variable number of people. The coupling of multiple displays can thus create interactive “ecosystems” which mingle in the social context, and generate novel settings of communication, performance and ownership.
This workshop follows on from the AVI 2008 workshop “PPD 08: Workshop on designing multi-touch interaction techniques for coupled public and private displays”. You can also download the proceedings of our 2008 Workshop here 6.6mb PDF
The objective of this 2010 workshop is to focus on the range research challenges and opportunities afforded by applications that rely on visual interfaces that can spread across multiple displays connected to different devices.
Recent developments have seen the wide spread proliferation of both large shared displays and small display technologies. In parallel we have seen the emergence of new classes of device which support both touch or multi touch interaction. Examples of small touch driven devices include PDAs, iPads, Tablets and iPhones and examples of large interactive surfaces (mutli-touch driven displays) include the MERL Diamondtouch and Microsoft Surface.
Interactive surfaces offer great potential for face-to-face work and social interaction and provide natural ways to directly manipulate virtual objects whereas small devices afford the individual a personal workspace or “scratch space” to formulate ideas before bringing them to a wider audience.
Advanced visual interfaces can be built around a combination of both private and public display systems. Such computer mediated multi-device interaction between local touchdriven displays and shared public ones presents a number of novel and challenging research problems.
This workshop will specifically focus on the research
challenges in designing visual interfaces for multiple display
ecosystems such as the combination of small touch driven
private input displays eg. (a set of iPhones) coupled with
large public displays such as information kiosks, digital notice
boards, Diamondtouch or Microsoft Surface.
Topics of Interest
Based on the submissions received, these topics will be
refined into 3 or 4 specific themes for group work and discussion
at the workshop.
- Developing evaluation strategies to cope with the complex nature of multi-display environments
- Ethnography and user studies of visual interfaces relying on coupled displays
- Understanding the design space and identifying factors that influence user interactions in this space
- The impact of social conventions on the design of suitable interaction techniques for shared and private displays
- Exploring interaction techniques that facilitate multi-display interfaces
- Novel interaction techniques for both private and public multi-touch devices as part of multi-display environments
- Techniques for supporting input re-direction and distributing information between displays
- SDK/APIs and IDEs for the development of coupled display visual interfaces.
We invite contributions from researchers and practitioners
working in the area of multi-display environments and
interactive surfaces coupled with private displays. Interested
attendees should submit a short position paper of less than 4
pages according to the format detailed on our website. Based
on a international peer review of the position papers about 10
to 15 participants will be invited to attend the workshop.
The workshop will be for a full day and structured to provide maximum time for
group discussion and brainstorming. Each participant will be expected to be familiar
with all position papers (which will be available to them well in advance of the
event). The workshop will structured around four sessions (separated by the morning
break, lunch and afternoon break). In the first session the participants will briefly
introduce themselves and then provide very brief presentations noting the key
points from their position papers. Following this we will engage in a brainstorming to
outline key discussion topics for the two midday sessions. In the second and third
session the group will be divided into sub-groups moderated by the workshop
organizers to have focused discussions on some of the key topics identified earlier. In
the fourth session the group will reconvene to summarize the advances identified in
the breakout discussions
The workshop will end with a detailed discussion to define immediate next steps, including a revised EU COST action, requests for contribution to a planned research book and a discussion of future steps for this plan and target dates.
Submissions should be prepared according to the ACM proceedings template format.
The maximum number of pages allotted for each workshop position paper is 4 pages.
All submissions must be emailed to by March 19, 2010, 11:59 pm PST
Paper submission deadline: Mar 19, 2010
Notification of acceptance: Mar 30, 2010
Camera ready version: Apr 10, 2010
