------------------------ 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 media such as 
whiteboards and flip charts are being replaced by large interactive 
surfaces such as touch-sensitive wall-mounted displays or interactive 

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

Given the novelty of the interaction techniques on these surfaces 
(touches, gestures, speech etc.), facilitating intuitive and effective 
use of interactive surfaces 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 
and related fields, including prospective users of interactive surfaces 
as well as creators of surface-based design tools.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Collocated collaborative work on interactive surfaces
- Synchronous and asynchronous distributed work using interactive surfaces
- Manipulating information/entities on interactive surfaces 
("interaction in the small")
- Performing tasks using interactive surfaces ("interaction in the large")
- Recognizing and interpreting inputs on interactive surfaces
- Recognizing and interpreting inputs on supplementary channels (e.g. 
- Bridging the gap between physical and digital artifacts
- Visualizing software engineering artifacts on interactive surfaces
- Employing interactive surfaces in different phases of software development
- Usage requirements of different roles/stakeholders in software projects

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

- Aug 29, 2016: Paper submission
- Sep  3, 2016: Acceptance notification
- Sep  9, 2016: Camera-ready submission
- Sep 16, 2016: Early registration
