------------------------ CALL FOR PARTICIPATION -----------------------

                         NordiCHI 2016 Workshop on

          Interactive Surfaces for Collaborative Software Design

                    24 October 2016, Gothenburg, Sweden

------------ ------------

Large drawing boards have long been software engineers' tools of choice 
for collaborative software design. Recently, traditional design tools 
such as whiteboards and flip charts are being replaced by large 
interactive surfaces such as touch-sensitive wall-mounted displays or 
interactive tabletops.

This workshop explores the novel opportunities that these interactive 
modeling tools offer for collaborative software engineering, as well as 
the technical and cognitive challenges that they introduce.

Given the novelty of the interaction techniques on large digital 
surfaces (touches, gestures, speech etc.), facilitating their intuitive 
and effective use as software design tools involves not just the 
software engineering and human-computer interaction disciplines, but 
also relies on contributions from fields such as pattern recognition, 
machine learning and artificial intelligence.

The workshop aims to bring together academics and practitioners in these 
fields - including software engineers in the role of prospective users 
of interactive surfaces, and in the role of creators of surface-based 
design tools - to discuss how interactive surfaces can be used 
effectively as design tools in the software development process.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Collaboration and design requirements of different roles/stakeholders 
in the software development process
- Employing interactive surfaces in different phases of the software 
development process
- Collocated collaborative software design on interactive surfaces
- Synchronous and asynchronous distributed software design on 
interactive surfaces
- Visualizing software engineering artifacts on interactive surfaces
- Manipulating software artifacts on interactive surfaces ("interaction 
in the small")
- Performing software design tasks using interactive surfaces 
("interaction in the large")
- Bridging the gap between physical and digital software engineering 
artifacts (documents, models, code, user feedback, etc.)

Workshop participants are asked to submit a position paper of two pages 
in SIGCHI format at 
Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of their relevance to 
the workshop and potential to stimulate discussion. At least one author 
of each accepted submission must register for the workshop at
