Please join us for this one day participatory workshop, part of the INTERACT 2017 conference, September 25, 2017, Mumbai, India.

Designing Gestures for Interactive Systems: Towards Multicultural Perspectives <>

Workshop of the International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction <>

Context and Objectives
We address in this workshop the problem of designing gestures for interactive systems. Current multi-touch and motion sensing technologies allow for capturing a large scope of gestures and movements that can be used to interact expressively with different media. Yet, the common use of gestures remains limited to few well-known strokes such as wipes and pinches, and hands or body movements remain rare.

Our aim is precisely to explore the question of gesture and movement design in a participatory workshop. In particular, we wish to focus the discussion on possible differences in cultures and contexts, and how this might affect both positively or adversely the appropriation of shared gestural interaction paradigms.

The workshop is open to participants of diverse backgrounds including engineering, human and social sciences, design and the performing arts.
