Call For Papers

Call for Papers: Large-scale Interaction Deployment : Approaches and Challenges

Workshop at EICS 2015, June 23th, 2015, Duisburg, Germany

Workshop Topics

Advances in Human Computer Interaction continue to enrich NUI research. An unprecedented interest in implying full potential of human body’s sensory and motor systems for interactivity is manifested by new market initiatives for motion gestures, brain interfaces, touch gestures, etc. Whilst the NUI paradigm provides rich interaction possibilities and fertile ground for innovation, its increasing popularity imposes new critical challenges for large scale adoption of interaction techniques in real-world pervasive and ubiquitous computing ecosystems (named shortly as ambient spaces). Recent advancement in interactivity in ambient spaces clearly demonstrate the need for (1) dynamic runtime deployment of interaction techniques, (2) adequate dissemination strategies of interaction techniques; (3) in-situ adaptation of interaction techniques; (4) adequate learning methods and intelligibility in highly dynamic and adaptive interactive systems; and (5) interaction ensembles (where multiple interactions are combined together at runtime). The aforementioned needs and challenges are mainly caused by increased user mobility, increased heterogeneity of available interaction resources, and increased diversity of physical abilities (i.e., diversity of user population).

Call for Participation

In this workshop, we are mainly interested in exposing those challenges and potential approaches for tackling them. The workshop aims to stimulate a discussion on the aforementioned core research questions by inviting position papers between 4 and 6 pages in length on any of the the following topics (other related topics are welcomed as well):

- Architectural concepts for dynamic runtime deployment of interaction techniques
- Formal languages, notations, and concepts for describing interactions for NUIs
- Designing and implementing highly adaptive interaction techniques
- Studies on users’ diversity in NUI, including age, physical limitations, etc.
- Studies on user challenges in highly adaptive interactive environments
- Analysis of limitations of existing NUI middleware frameworks and systems
- Analysis and evaluation of HCI community practices and norms for disseminating interaction techniques
- Discussion on open challenges for designing and implementing middleware frameworks and systems for NUI
- Adjustable, customizable, and modular interactive systems
- Novice and end user interaction programming

Submission Procedure

Submissions should be between 4 and 6 pages in length and should be sent by e-mail to by April 24th, 2015. Papers should be formatted according to the standard ACM SIGCHI template. All papers should contain full author names and affiliations.

Submissions will be chosen according to relevance, quality, and likelihood that they will stimulate and contribute to the discussion. Notifications about acceptance will be sent by May 8th. At least one author of each accepted paper has to register for the workshop by the early-bird registration deadline. Accepted papers will be made publicly available on the workshop website along with the material generated during the workshop.

Workshop Structure

The full-day workshop will be split into two main sessions: (a) Morning session will cover an invited keynote speech sponsored by the BMBF funded project Ensembles. The keynote will be followed by presentations and discussion of accepted contributions. The session will contain one 20 minutes coffee break and will last until the lunch break. (b) Afternoon session, called innovative trend analysis, will utilize Visual Roadmapping methods to discuss and analyze the discussed approaches and trends based on the workshop’s core research questions. The session will last 3 hours and will contain one 15 minutes coffee break. Finally, the main conclusions of the workshop will be summarized in a 30 minutes conclusion and outlook session.
