WORKSHOP ON
 IMPROVING AND ASSESSING PEN-BASED INPUT TECHNIQUES
To be held at HCI 2005, Edinburgh on Monday 5 September 2005

TOPIC
Over the past ten years or so, pen-based interaction with handheld devices
has become widespread. Digital ink and digital pens, as well as the more
common use of pens with PDAs and tablet PCs, all provide new methods for
interaction. This workshop is designed to bring the human back into the
investigation of pen-based interfaces and to consider ways in which such
interfaces can be designed to provide rewarding user experiences.

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES.
This workshop is not just about improving recognition algorithms. Instead,
it will focus on the following four themes:
  Recognition Techniques for Rich Pen-based Input: Input to pen-based systems
can be varied, including handwritten text, drawing, doodles, annotations
or structural elements (e.g., arrows). We will consider how to handle and
enrich such input.
  Methods that improve the Reading Process. Recognition will never be 100%
accurate but with the appropriate assistance, the user may be able to read
the output.
  User-based Error Repair: The discovery of and recovery from errors at
the
interface, and the possibilities for multimodal error repair and error reduction
methods.
  Methods for Evaluating Pen-based Interfaces: Traditionally, the focus
has
been on the calculation of recognition error rates and the determination
of ratings for user satisfaction. Novel evaluation methods are of interest,
especially those that capture a broader range of quality attributes.

PAPER SUBMISSION AND WORKSHOP ATTENDANCE
Participation in the workshop requires the submission and acceptance of a
paper. These papers will form the basis of workshop presentations and discussions.
We invite submissions of research papers that address one or more of the
workshop themes. Papers must be a maximum of 8 pages and should include a
200-word abstract. Papers should not be anonymised. Papers will be reviewed
by the workshop organisers and will be selected for appropriateness, originality
and academic rigour. Thoughtful and reflective papers of a more conceptual
nature will be considered alongside more traditional studies and ?practice
& experience? reports. It is intended that authors of selected papers from
the workshop will be invited to submit revised versions of their papers as
the basis of a special issue of Interacting with Computers.

IMPORTANT DATES.
We are operating two deadlines for contributions. The first deadline is
27th June; the second is 15th August. Authors submitting to the first deadline
will be informed of acceptance by 8th July, allowing them to take advantage
of early bird rates for the conference. The later submissions will hear
by 22nd August.

Contributions should be sent to both organisers in both pdf form and Word.
 The Volume 2 formatting style of HCI 2005 is preferred but not essential.
