  Call for Participation

  Full-day workshop


  _Title: Making Places: Visualization, Interaction and Experience in
  Urban Space

  "Cities are exciting" [8]. People are drawn to urban areas because of
  the choices that cities offer. Large-scale sensor networks and
  pervasive computing technologies are transforming city environments as
  they become augmented with increasingly powerful, networked
  technologies and media. [4] This raises the question of how these
  technologies can play a part in improving the use of the spaces in
  urban environment and, critically, what roles information
  visualization and interaction design have in this endeavor. [7] In the
  context of so-called future or smart cities, visualizations are
  especially relevant as they are the tangible outcomes of these
  systems, while interaction design is the enabler for citizens to
  engage with this urban data.

  Emerging technologies are providing new ways of experiencing
  information in urban space and, consequently, creating a fertile area
  for cross-disciplinary research, bringing together computer sciences,
  social sciences, arts and music, among others (see for example [1],
  [2], [3], [5] and [6]). But it is through human activities, that urban
  spaces become "places". How people experience and conceptualise
  "place" is formed by the scope and range of what happens in that space
  and those that inhabit it.

This is an interdisciplinary workshop encouraging dialogue between 
researchers, technologists and design practitioners who are interested 
in forming continuing collaborative links. We invite position papers 
(2-6 pages) in Alt Chi format, from a range of areas as HCI, computer 
and social sciences, music, and arts. Papers will be peer-viewed by at 
least two members of an international programme committee.
