Media Space - Reflecting on 20 Years

	A workshop at CSCW 2006
	November 4, 2006
	Banff, Alberta, Canada

Organizer: Steve Harrison     [log in to unmask]	(Virginia Tech)

Workshop Website:
CSCW 2006 Website:

Since the first media spaces were created in the 1980's, technology  
has changed and affordable real-time desktop conferencing is a  
reality. But what happened to the ideas of the media space? While  
there are ubiquitous cell-phone cameras, web-cams, iChat,  
architectural scale displays, the Internet, and globalized work, how  
do these current technologies and collaborative experiences look like  
and look different than those of a media space? What is the current  
state of systems that employ socially negotiated control instead of  
enforcing an established policy? What is the meaning of "awareness"  
and "presence" today?

We invite all who worked on the first media spaces and those who are  
re-discovering these ideas in current research to participate in a  
one day workshop held in conjunction with CSCW 2006 in Banff. Some  
topics include:
* privacy
* large scale display
* awareness
* telepresence
* mobile awareness (IM)
* video chat
* social triangulation
* coordination
* distributed work
* multi-player games
* camera-projector integration research
* IRVE's
* media and related critical theory
* space and place issues
* and, of course, media space.

To participate, send a two to four page position paper describing  
ongoing work, recent results, or opinions and approaches to  
[log in to unmask]

We particularly seek significant unanswered questions and challenges  
to current paradigms that further media space research might address.  
Papers will be peer-reviewed and 15 will be selected. This workshop  
is inspired by an invitation to submit a book proposal on this topic  
to Springer's CSCW book series.
