CSCW 2008 Workshop: **Beyond the Laboratory: Supporting Authentic
Collaboration with Multiple Displays**

November 8, 2008 - San Diego, California, USA

It is increasingly common to find Multiple Display Environments (MDEs) 
in a variety of settings, including the workplace, the classroom, and 
perhaps soon, the home. While some technical challenges exist even in 
single-user MDEs, collaborative use of MDEs offers a rich set of 
opportunities for research and development. In this workshop, we will 
bring together experts in designing, developing, building and 
evaluating MDEs to improve our collective understanding of design 
guidelines, relevant real-world activities, evaluation methods and 
metrics, and opportunities for remote as well as collocated 
collaboration. We intend to create not only a broader understanding of 
this growing field, but also to foster a community of researchers 
interested in bringing these environments from the laboratory to the 
real world.

Workshop themes
In this workshop, we intended to explore the following research 

  - Elicitation and process of distilling design guidelines for
    MDE systems and interfaces.

  - Investigation and classification of activities suited for MDEs.

  - Exploration and assessment of how existing groupware theories
    apply to collaboration in MDEs.

  - Evaluation techniques and metrics for assessing effectiveness of
    prototype MDE systems and interfaces.

  - Exploration of MDE use beyond strictly collocated collaboration.
