Call for Position Papers and Participation
Workshop on Multiple User Interfaces over the Internet: Engineering and
Applications Trends
In conjunction with HCI-IHM 10-14 September 2001 Lille, France
Workshop site:
Conference site:

The convergence of the Internet, mobile telephony, and handheld devices
(PDA) technologies has led to the emergence of new kind of
Internet-based interactive systems (IBIS). These emerging IBIS allow a
user to interact with the server-side services and content using
different kinds of computers and devices including traditional office
desktop, laptops, palmtop, PDA with or without keyboards, mobile
telephone, interactive television, etc. However, a Multiple User
Interface is more than a multi-devices user interface. It refers to the
concept of a system that can provide both multiple views of a content
and coordinate the actions of one or many users using different devices
and computers. Multiple user interfaces is highly promising in numerous
fields including cooperative engineering, e.commerce transaction,
on-site equipment maintenance, remote software deployment, contingency
management and assistance for those involved in group decision making as
well as distance education systems.

 We are particularly interested in position papers and experience
reports from industry and academia related to the following issues:

- Conceptual models, social concepts and interaction metaphors for
organizing and structuring multiple user interfaces,
- Characteristic of a MUI including plasticity, cross-platform
usability, and accessibility
- Guidelines, design frameworks and patterns for multiple interfaces
- User Interfaces toolkits and development tools for multi-devices in
particular PDAs and cellular phone
- Context of use of multiple user interfaces
- Applications that use multi-devices or a multiple user interfaces in
particular for collaborative work, distance education and remote
software deployment and maintenance systems.
