Final call for participation

Interactive City Lighting
Workshop at the ACM CHI 2013 conference
April 27, 2013: Paris, France

Deadline for submissions is January 11, 2012.
URL: http://interactivecitylighting.id.tue.nl

********
LED based lighting systems have enabled radically new possibilities in the field of artificial lighting. This is due to in part to the LED being digitally controllable which means this efficient light source can also be integrated with sensors and smart environments. This has opened up a new world of lighting and lighting interaction opportunities that has been applied in new concepts in many of the lighting domains from homes to hospitality to hospitals. The outdoor lighting domain however has focused mostly on the LED’s efficiency and low cost of ownership to save energy and money for local governments.  The use of the LED as a potential means for providing interactive city lighting for social good or entertainment is as yet a fairly unexplored area. This is therefore the focus of this workshop and to bring together a community of researchers, designers and technologists to explore the potential of interactive city lighting and how it could support or enhance the lives of those living in a city. Above all during the workshop we would like to: identify key opportunities for new forms of interactive lighting systems in urban context, explore interaction paradigms that can be (re-) used for interactive urban lighting, and examine adequate ways of prototyping and evaluating interactive lighting systems.

The main goals of the workshop are:
-       Identify key opportunities for new forms of interactive lighting systems in urban contexts.
-       Explore interaction paradigms that can be (re-) used for interactive urban lighting.
-       Examine adequate ways of prototyping and evaluating interactive lighting systems.

********
Topics of Interest
Topics include:
-       Interaction design for urban lighting systems including street, city parks, playgrounds and squares illumination, city beautification with interactive façades illumination and so on
-       Adaptation of existing UI paradigms to lighting systems
-       User studies of interactions that are or can be applied to interactive lighting systems
-       Intelligent street lighting
-       Prototyping for urban lighting systems
-       Evaluation methodologies for urban lighting systems
We invite researchers and designers interested in exploring user interaction for new forms of lighting systems.

********
Workshop structure
The first part of the workshop (the morning) will be dedicated to the introduction of emerging forms of urban lighting interaction (keynote by Emile Aarts) and the presentations of the individual attendees.  Time will also be given to prepare a list of topics for the afternoon session. In the afternoon session we will split into groups, with each taking one particular aspect of urban lighting (presented or identified during the morning session). We will then attempt to work out a concept of interactive lighting system and finally create a simple working prototype.
