Special Issue on Interactive Public Displays

Recent trends show an increasing prevalence of interactive displays of 
varying sizes in public and urban life. With their prominent visibility 
and the integration of diverse methods for interaction, they can offer 
new opportunities to enrich user experiences beyond the personal sphere, 
for instance in public knowledge institutions such as museums and 
libraries, or integrated within public plazas or architectural facades. 
The public context with its social and cultural particularities and 
constraints provides a large variety of intriguing but challenging 
settings and use-case scenarios for interactive displays of varying sizes.

This special issue will focus on research that addresses the 
opportunities and challenges around public indoor and outdoor urban 
display installations. We in particular encourage submissions that 
approach the topic from a holistic point of view, including the design 
process as well as insights from field deployments “in the wild”. Topics 
for articles include, but are not limited to:

- Real-world applications and scenarios in the urban context.
- Display technologies suitable for public scenarios.
- Designing for evocative urban experiences.
- Initiating meaningful engagement with content in urban contexts.
- Questions around participation, authorship, and ownership.
- Content, visualization techniques and gaming.
- Interaction techniques and paradigms suitable for urban scenarios.
- Shaping experiences through implicit and explicit feedback mechanisms.
- Methods and challenges of evaluating large urban display installations.
- Findings from “in the wild” studies.

Submissions due: July 14, 2012
First Round of Reviews: Sept. 1, 2012
