                CALL FOR PAPERS

    Distributed and Disappearing User Interfaces
                in Ubiquitous Computing

Workshop at the CHI2001 Conference in Seattle

As computer interfaces merges with our environments and virtually
become invisible, new concepts for human-computer interaction have
to be developed. Instead of a single screen-based user
interface (UI), humans will interact with a multitude of devices
that are distributed and interconnected, and thus the design space
for these UIs become much larger than with conventional computers.

We aim to develop an understanding of how distributed and disappearing
  UIs in ubiquitous computing can be designed and created, and also to
  consider the impact they will have on people s everyday life.

The workshop will focus on how to:
* reliably gather, model, and take advantage of situational context
* appropriately choose among available output options
* attract someone s attention without disturbing others
* address conflicting user goals in multi-user scenarios
* describe and model widgets in such systems
* handle system breakdowns

We will also address privacy, design, aesthetics and expressions, trying
  to grasp the possible social impact of such systems.

We hope to bring together researchers and practitioners who are concerned
with design, development, and implementation of novel interfaces for mobile
devices and environment-based appliances, as well as social issues emerging
from their use.

Participants will be selected based on their submissions, either a position
paper (2 pages) describing their interest and experience in the field, or an
extended abstract (5 pages) describing ongoing research.
