Special Issue on Collocated Interaction: New Challenges in ‘Same Time, Same Place’ Research

To appear in Human-Computer Interaction, the journal published by Taylor & Francis. 

In the 25 years since Ellis, Gibbs, and Rein proposed the time-space taxonomy, ‘same time, same place’ research has diversified. This Special Issue seeks contributions from this diverse field that includes: convergent interests in tabletop, surface, mobile, and wearable technologies; spaces and spatial interaction; and the social aspects of interaction, such as conversation analysis and ethnomethodology. These research areas have matured considerably, and produced significant exemplars of systems, methods, and studies concerned with collocated interactions. Yet, new challenges abound as people wear and carry more devices than ever, creating fragmented device ecologies at work, and changing the ways we socialise with each other. This Special Issue seeks to synthesise work concerned with methodology, study, or design for collocated interaction in order to provide an overview of the field and to shape a research agenda for the future. 

We invite contributions to the HCI Journal Special Issue on Collocated Interaction: New Challenges in ‘Same Time, Same Place’ Research. Contributions should relate to the design and study of collocated interaction, including but not limited to any of the following: 
• Studies of novel collocated interaction settings (including ‘everyday’ settings and multi-device ecologies);
• Design and study of interaction techniques and systems supporting collocated interaction (including cross-device interaction, spatial interaction, mixed-presence, and groupware systems);
• Discussion of methodologies and theoretical approaches to study and design collocated interaction.

Proposals due: 1st July 2016
