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 themes:

  - 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.
