               Workshop on Ubiquitous Display Environments

                    In conjunction with Ubicomp 2004
              Nottingham, UK, Tuesday, September 7, 2004

           http://ubicomp.lancs.ac.uk/workshops/ubidisplay04



IMPORTANT DATES
===============

- Jul 26, 2004: Deadline for submissions
- Aug  2, 2004: Notification of acceptance
- Sep  7, 2004: Workshop at Ubicomp 2004


DESCRIPTION
===========

Recent years have seen a dramatic improvement in display technology.
Although not as pronounced as the advances in computer processing and memory
capabilities, it has nevertheless created a situation where displays -
ranging in form factor from very small to very large - are available at
relative low cost and are being used for everything from digital picture
frames to building-sized billboards. The large scale deployment and use of
displays in public (airports, train stations, etc.) and semi-public spaces
(home, hospital, etc.) raises important questions in the areas of
human-computer interaction, computer-mediated communication, distributed
systems, and networking.

This workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners from a
wide variety of disciplines with the goal to identify and discuss issues
related to the design, implementation, use and evaluation of ubiquitous
display environments. The immediate objective is to foster a multifaceted
investigation; the ultimate goal is to define a research agenda for the area
as a whole and to stimulate new research initiatives. A particular focus of
this workshop is to investigate the implications of new display technologies
for system design and interaction.

The scope of interest includes but is not limited to:

- Novel display technologies
- Interaction techniques for ubiquitous display environments
- Applications and scenarios
- Toolkits and authoring tools
- General methods and guidelines
- Multi-display environments


FORMAT
======

The workshop is planned to bring together 10-15 people with various
backgrounds and interests. We welcome participants from all disciplines that
are related to ubiquitous display environments, including but not limited to
engineering, human-computer interaction, industrial design, and economics.
We are particularly keen on attracting people from industry as well as
academic.

Prospective participants will be requested to submit possible topics for
discussion. Communication between participants will be facilitated prior to
the workshop, via e-mail, to begin discussion of the workshop topics. To
maximize information and idea exchange and foster collaboration, we plan to
spend most of the time on discussions rather than presentations. The primary
activities at the workshop will take place in small working groups made up
of 3-4 people.


SUBMISSIONS
===========

The participants will be selected on the basis of a submitted paper (up to 6
pages in Springer LNCS format) describing their interest and experience in
the field, or ongoing research. Submissions will be reviewed by the workshop
organizers and outside experts.


ORGANIZERS
==========

- Alois Ferscha (University of Linz, Austria)
- Gerd Kortuem (Lancaster University, UK)
- Antonio Krüger (Saarland University, Germany)
