1st Int. Workshop on Interactive Content Consumption at EuroITV 2013

This workshop focuses on novel forms of interactive content consumption. It will explore the shifting balance between lean-back passive TV consumption and lean-forward interactivity; this shift is especially relevant considering the explosion of companion screen interaction, multi-modal gesture/voice control and advanced audiovisual content interaction such as free viewpoint video and user-controlled shot selection. New media formats and consumption paradigms have emerged that allow for new types of interactivity.
The workshop’s objective is to provide a highly interactive discussion forum that will allow capturing a comprehensive view on this research area. We aim to examine and evaluate new forms of content interaction by discussing the field along three axes:
• Recent technological advances that provide new forms of audiovisual content interaction;
• User studies that evaluate new types of audiovisual content interaction;
• Technologies that supports the user in finding the balance between passive consumption and lean-forward interaction.
The workshop is seeking contributions from technical research, user-centric studies, and industry developments. Please consider submitting research papers for oral presentation, or shorter papers to contribute as (technical) demo or poster.
