Multi-Device Interfaces for Ubiquitous Peripheral Interaction

Cell-phones and PDAs are ubiquitous, yet there are limits to the usage
they afford.
Notably, they aren't always accessible - they're usually carried in a
pocket, purse,
backpack, etc. This means that people must consciously decide to use a
device;
furthermore, when a device is used, it becomes the focus of the user's
attention.
A new generation of emerging devices does not share these limits. For
example,
a computationally augmented wristwatch is always visible. It could be
used to
scroll messages and reminders, and to sound tones or light LEDs for
items of
special interest. Such special purpose devices can be combined with PDAs
to
form multi-device interfaces, delivering a user experience that offers
both the
peripheral awareness enabled by (say) a wristwatch, and the more
powerful
computational, networking, and interactive capabilities of a PDA. This
workshop
aims to explore candidate devices, interface designs, and information
architectures
for multi-device interfaces.

Submission details:
The workshop has three specific goals: (1) identifying requirements for
ubiquitous
peripheral awareness devices and considering specific devices that can
meet these
requirements, (2) exploring software techniques and architectures that
drive the
interaction, and (3) examining designs for interfaces that divide their
functionality
across several wearable devices. Please read the workshop web site
(http://www.cs.umn.edu/~terveen/ubicomp2003.html) for additional
details.
Then submit a 2-4 page position statement that first describes your
background briefly,
then addresses one or more of the workshop goals, identifies at least
one specific
research issue associated with each goal, and describes your current or
planned work
that addresses the issues. The organizers will select participants based
on the
significance and clarity of the research questions and the novelty and
interest of the
proposed or completed solutions. Position papers of all accepted
participants will be
posted on the workshop website. All submissions should be sent via email
to
[log in to unmask] with a subject field "Ubicomp 2003 Workshop
submission".
