> Call for participation - CHI 2009 Workshop (Boston, MA, USA, April 2009)
> Crowd-Computer Interaction
> Description:
> Crowds are an integral feature of contemporary life, and emerging 
> technologies raise questions around how new interactional forms might 
> work in crowd contexts. In this workshop, we will examine crowds as a 
> unit of interaction for technology design, focusing primarily on 
> collocated assemblies of people who interact in the same timeframe. 
> The goals of the workshop include identifying foundational materials, 
> canonical examples, and key gaps in our knowledge of crowd 
> interactions, in order to better understand the state of the art of 
> research and design of crowd technologies. The predominant themes of 
> the workshop are interactions within crowds, diverse crowd 
> configurations and individual and collective experience.
> Over the course of the one-day workshop, we will engage in crowd 
> exercises intended to stimulate discussion and analysis, present a 
> selection of short papers, and engage in group discussions inspired by 
> workshop themes, paper presentations, and exercises.
> We invite position papers of 2-3 pages, in .pdf or .doc format, 
> relating to the themes of the workshop. Topics include but are not 
> limited to:
> • Studies of crowd behaviour and dynamics
> • Crowd applications and games
> • Interactions between audience and performers
> • Techniques for collective interactions and gestures
> • Systems/studies relating to spectator experiences
> • Systems for measuring and responding to crowd behaviour
> • Mass effects of person-to-person mechanisms such as epidemic 
> networking or file-sharing
> In addition each position paper should propose a crowd-based exercise 
> to be done during the workshop. This exercise should be grounded in 
> the participant’s study of, or design for, crowd settings.
