Extended Deadline: Crafting urban camouflage, a workshop at DIS 2012

Important Dates:

March 23rd, 2012. Workshop submission deadline.

April 16th, 2012. Feedback to authors.

June 11th, 2012. Workshop at DIS 2012.

More information and the workshop description is here:<>



As interactive systems become increasingly entwined with architecture and spaces become more able to detect the presence of individuals, should the need for control of visibility as a temporary personal state be a factor considered in interaction design?

This one-day workshop will take a playful approach to exploring how low-cost materials and tools can be used to manage personal visibility in monitored public space by designing and testing prototypes for rendering people invisible, using craft and physical hacks to explore the limits of computer vision tracking systems (OpenCV). By explicitly engineering modes of failure, we can learn how visibility and invisibility can be managed, while also considering potential improvements in robust tracking for interaction design purposes.

Researchers and practitioners from the fields of art, design, ubiquitous computing, computer vision, wearable computing, architecture and social science who are interested in computational tracking technologies, strategies for managing personal visibility or design for hybrid public spaces are encouraged to apply. No prior knowledge or experience of computer tracking systems is required.
