I've gotten the deadline extended to January 6 for our
workshop, to make it closer to the other workshop deadlines.
Here's the info...


What is the Next Generation of Human-Computer Interaction?

Sunday, April 23, 2006, at CHI 2006 in Montreal

Robert J.K. Jacob
Tufts University, Medford, Mass., USA


Is there an emerging next generation of human-computer
interaction or simply "a thousand points of light" of
disparate and unrelated new developments?  This workshop
will bring together researchers in a range of emerging new
areas of HCI to look for common ground and a common
understanding of a next generation of interfaces, after the
command-line and GUI generations.  Key research areas
include: virtual and augmented reality; ubiquitous,
pervasive, and handheld interaction; tangible interfaces;
lightweight, tacit, passive, or non-command interaction;
perceptual interfaces; affective computing; context-aware
interfaces; ambient interfaces; embodied interfaces; sensing
interfaces; and speech and multi-modal interfaces.

We seek to tie them together intellectually with unifying
ideas, frameworks, and theories that provide common ground
for discussing, analyzing, connecting, inventing, comparing,
and making predictions about emerging new interaction styles
and interface designs as well as to identify gaps or
opportunities for a future research agenda from holes or
"sweet spots" in a new taxonomy.  To start discussion
concretely, we will use the notion of reality-based
interfaces, which focuses on the ways interfaces draw
strength from exploiting users' pre-existing skills and
expectations from the real world.


We invite computer scientists and interaction design
researchers working on next generation interfaces and
psychologists, cognitive scientists, and observers of HCI.
Please submit a 4-page position paper about your ongoing
work, new interaction designs, opinions or approaches to the
problem, or conceptual frameworks or theories.  Papers will
be peer-reviewed and 15-20 selected by relevance and
likelihood of stimulating and contributing to this
discussion.  Email your paper, in PDF, to [log in to unmask]
with subject "CHI 2006 Workshop Submission" by January 6, 2006.
