Workshop: Everyday Telepresence: Emerging Practice and Future Research
Date: April 19, 2015 @ CHI 2015
Deadline: January 5
Submission website:

Telepresence technologies—systems that provide the perception of
presence within a physically remote or simulated site—have recently
seen increased adoption in home, business, medical, and educational
settings, spurred by advances in mobile devices, networking, virtual
reality, and robotics.  The integration of these technologies into
people's lives—e.g., using their phones to video chat with friends,
receiving care from doctors via telemedical devices, or watching a
grandson's baseball game over a tablet—has opened up a vast new space
for future research.  As a result, new questions have emerged about
how telepresence systems may affect current theories, alter user
perceptions, influence communicative behaviors, or support distant

Our goal for this workshop is to engage researchers and designers
across multiple telepresence-related disciplines---including virtual
reality, teleoperation, telepresence robotics, mobile telepresence,
computer-mediated communication, video-mediated communication, and
telemedicine.  We aim to build common ground for researchers from
different backgrounds, allowing them to share their perspectives,
methodologies, and results from their own investigations in
telepresence, and to promote communication, collaboration, and
discussion on how to advance the field.

Prospective authors are invited to submit position papers
demonstrating research, design, practice or interest in telepresence.
Position papers should be no more than 4 pages long and in the ACM
SIGCHI Extended Abstract format to

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop
and register for at least one day of the conference.  Accepted
submissions will be hosted on the workshop website, at
