                      CALL FOR PAPERS FOR
       The Experience of Media -- From Design to Use

 MiniTrack co-chairs:  Daniel M. Russell, Andreas Dieberger

             Part of the "Digital Documents" track
                at the Thirty-seventh Annual
                on the Big Island of Hawaii
                    January 5 - 8, 2004

Additional detail on the web site:

The traditional notions of document as "office memo" or "textbook chapter"
have changed, and are now likely to be email, include pointers to web
sites, references to IRC channels, images in the body of the document,
interactive content (e.g., Flash or Java-based media), audio annotations
and entire video segments.   We have to reconsider what it means to have
"documents" in the workplace and in our educational system as media types
multiply and increasingly become real time and connected in nature.  And as
importantly, how we come to create and use such diverse kinds of media.

It has become increasingly apparent that corporate and educational content
is distributed via focused narrowcasting or via special web documents.
Meetings and presentations are being captured on digital video for later
reference, with indexing and search tools becoming as common as the jog
shuttle, fast forward and rewind. Rather than offering training classes,
companies are recording training materials and providing them on demand via
a broadband network service. In the classroom, lectures are now commonly
recorded for later study or use at another time and place. Going beyond
stored content, teleconferencing and live connections are clearly seen as
part of the media mix -- a video connection between meeting participants is
just another kind of media.

In the educational sphere, we are seeing entirely new practices emerge as
each class has its own web site -- both for students use, and for the
instructor's use.  This introduction of rich media types, in an
intrinsically networked service, with both synchronous and asynchronous
aspects, promises to fundamentally reconfigure what it means to be a
student AND a teacher.

While there are a rich number of tools and idioms for creating different
kinds of media, there are still a large number of issues in defining new
media types, creating the content, and developing methods of using the
media content.

This minitrack will address issues regarding the design and use of media in
many settings -- including the office and classroom. We are seeking high
quality papers across a broad spectrum of media design, interfaces to media
content, creation, media use and analysis.  Specific topics include but are
not restricted to:

      Content analysis, Video and document summarization
      Content authoring, Multimedia document browsing
      User interfaces for new media types, Content-based retrieval
      Teleconferencing, remote meeting collaboration media
      Audio analysis, Applications
      Media literacy
      User studies and design for specific populations
      Coordinating video with other media types
      Use of multimedia documents over a variety of displays
       (from PDAs to broadband workstations)

In this minitrack, we hope to see not only the newest work across a number
of academic and industrial settings, but also create a wide-ranging
discussion in this synthesis of fields.
