SLIDE 2009, Workshop on "Small and Large Interfaces for Data Exploration"

Workshop at DEXA 2009:     August 31 - September 4, 2009, Linz, Austria
Workshop website:

We are pleased to announce that we are organizing SLIDE, the first workshop
on "Small and Large Interfaces for Data Exploration" in conjunction with
DEXA 2009 in Linz, Austria, 31 August - 4 September. In this workshop, we
plan to explore and discuss the latest research and new paradigms of
Exploring Data using alternative interface devices, including hardware and
software issues. 

Traditional computer interfaces and technologies provide limited support for
data exploration and analysis, especially of complex data sets, under time
pressure, or during collaboration. Recent developments in mobile and large,
interactive surfaces introduce promising alternative computing platforms for
interacting with and sharing data. The rapid advancement of
wireless-enabled, mobile devices, along with multi-touch and pen-based large
interactive surfaces shows that users' expectations about using these
devices in their daily lives have increased. The reaction to these natural
and tangible interface platforms has been dramatic and enthusiastic. This
reaction demonstrates people¹s inherent interest in a simpler way of
navigating complex information and content in which the computer interface
is not a barrier, but enables them to accomplish tasks more quickly and
easily. Since information systems and database systems have always been a
central topic of computer science it is interesting and challenging to
determine how to design and implement intuitive and interactive database
interfaces on these new computing platforms.

The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers and developers together to
share knowledge and expertise, to discuss all topics relevant to creating
large and small interfaces to access complex data in an easy and intuitive
way, and to evaluate these new kinds of interfaces while browsing and
sharing data.

We invite submission on the following, but not exclusive, topics:
- Advanced visual interfaces
- Collaborative environments
- Computer supported cooperative work systems
- Data exchange on large/small surfaces
- Data handling on large/small surfaces
- Multi-modal interfaces
- Novel interaction techniques
- Techniques for supporting data exchange
- User-centered design & methodologies
- Data handling on large/small touch-based interactive surfaces
- Visualization and interaction techniques
- Empirical methods, user studies
- Application scenarios, technical solutions
- Data exchange on large/small surfaces
- Data presentation on large/small surfaces

1. Submission deadline: April 10, 2009, 23:59 GMT+1
2. Acceptance notice: April 27, 2009
3. Camera-ready copies: May 25, 2009

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions or experience
reports in English. The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the
final paper as it will appear in the Proceedings. Papers should not exceed 5
pages in IEEE format,
