Dear colleagues and friends

We have extended the deadline to Aug. 28th. You just need to submit a short position text. 
Please forward the following email to those who might be interested! (No technical skills are required.)
Thank you very much!

Aesthetic, Practices and Design for Shape-Changing OUIs

As an emerging technology, shape-changing OUIs have non-planar displays that may actively or passively change shape via analogue physical inputs. The majority of research so far has focused on developing input and output technologies. But there are many aesthetic considerations and potential applications of OUIs, which have yet to be studied in-depth.

The main concern of the workshop will be on the aesthetic dimensions of these new types of artifacts, both tactile and visual, within certain contexts where interactions with the shape-changing artifacts will take place. It will bring together an interdisciplinary group of academic and industrial researchers to discuss the current and future opportunities of designing aesthetic experiences with the emerging technology.

We invite you to submit a 24 page position paper (in ACM Extended Abstracts Format) that discusses your thinking or practical work relating to the aesthetic aspects of shape-changing OUIs. We call on a broad participation, including researchers from technology, user studies, interaction-, product- and fashion design, multi-modal systems and haptic devices. No particular technical skills are required to participate.

The full-day workshop will include activities such as design exercises for specific personas and scenarios grounded in certain aesthetic practices. The organizers will bring some examples for hands-on explorations, and participants are also encouraged to bring their own design ideas, materials, projects, or whatever they find relevant or interesting for this domain.

Important date:

Extended Deadline for workshop papers: August 28th, 2014
Notifications of acceptance: September 11, 2014
Workshop date: October 26, 2014
