September 11, 2005: Pervasive Image Capture and Sharing 2005 workshop at
Ubicomp 2005 


The portable digital cameras enable prolific photo capturing in a
variety of settings and inspire digital photo sharing via an extensive
repertoire of mechanisms and modalities, including exchange of physical
prints, sharing of digital copies via email, web pages and blogs, or
simply showing images on the imaging devices during face-to-face
encounters. More recently, camera phones have expanded both image
capture and sharing through MMS (multimedia messaging), email from
phones, and transfer via IR or Bluetooth between phones. These new
functions, embedded in a device that is always close at hand, has led to
the emergence of pervasive image capture and sharing. 

The workshop will bring together a multi-disciplinary group of
researches and practitioners for a discussion around this emerging
phenomena. The goal is to examine up-to-date technology developments and
current social practices, and to understand implications for further
research, including design and development of new devices, applications
and services.


In this workshop we will address the following broad questions:

- What happens when image capture and sharing becomes an integral part
of everyday life? 
- What social practices exist today and what new practices are likely to
- What are the implications for technology? 
- What are the possible implications for social relationships and for
practical activity? 

For a more specific list of questions, please see the workshop page.
