While the main focus on much of HCI research has been on situations where a
user interacts with one specific set of physical and logical instruments, to
achieve a particular task or purpose, we are currently faced with the
challenge of understanding human-computer interaction as happening in
multiple, more or less ad hoc, and even changing configurations of
instruments. Human-computer interaction may migrate across devices; users
may access the same applications from several different devices, which offer
different interaction possibilities, and they may change between these, or
apply a multitude of devices while interacting.

The workshop focuses on concepts for understanding such ubiquitous
interaction, so as to design better interaction possibilities. Our claim is
that the field is fundamentally lacking a vocabulary to describe, discuss
and compare interaction beyond the level of one device-one application. We
challenge HCI researchers to make their contribution by submitting a
position paper to the workshop.

The themes include:
• context, in particular changing contexts of interaction
• activity-based interaction
• interaction patterns
• interaction and information migrating across devices
• changing configurations of interfaces in use
• analytical networks for ubiquitous interaction
