Call for Papers: Organic Experiences: (Re-)shaping Interactions with 
Deformable Displays -- A CHI2013 workshop.

Submission deadline: January 11, 2013


The next generation user experiences will rely on visual and physical 
output technologies that extend beyond the rigid, flat surfaces with 
which we are familiar to produce devices that both users and machines 
can deform and shape. Such experiences will allow users to physically 
push, pull, bend, fold, or wrap devices to facilitate new modes of 
interaction and better represent content.

This workshop will provide a forum to examine the three primary themes 
of research in this area: prototyping and implementation, interaction 
and experience design, and evaluation. It will bring together an 
interdisciplinary group of academic and industrial researchers to define 
the current and future challenges of crafting organic user experiences 
with deformable displays.

We invite you to submit a 2-4 page position paper that describes current 
work, future directions and significant challenges in the domain of 
interactions with deformable displays to support Organic User 
Experiences. We also encourage participants to bring along prototype or 
product demonstrations relevant to the workshop themes (please add a 
note to your paper if you are able to do this). Ensure your paper 
describes which of the one or more workshop themes best captures your 
area of work.

Please indicate which of the position paper authors will attend the 
workshop. Places are limited and we may need to cap the number of 
attendees per accepted paper. At least one author from each accepted 
paper must register for the full workshop and at least one day of the 


Workshop Structure:

The two-day workshop will allow a morning or afternoon to explore each 
of the following key topics: Current Knowledge and Visions for the 
Future, Prototyping and Implementation, Interaction and Experience 
Design, and Evaluation. Proposed activities include keynote speakers, 
technical demonstrations, hands-on prototyping, ideation and scenario 
development. Further details will be available on the website.
