CHI 2011 Workshop on Video interaction – Making broadcasting a successful social media
Vancouver, BC, May 7, 2011
A new type of social medium services, which e.g. makes it possible to capture live video and share it in real time to a web page, is becoming increasingly popular. Although the services are growing in numbers of users, it is still an immature application area and so is the research on this topic.
We invite you to a workshop to investigate the barriers and resources for making video interaction and sharing mobile a successful social media, through discussing topics, such as literacy, collaboration, hybridity, utility and privacy. We aim to connect researchers working with video related research to frame this interesting research field and to foster future collaboration. A concrete outcome of the workshop will be a proposal for a journal special issue on the topic of making mobile broadcasting a successful social media that the organizers will submit to appropriate venues.
Please submit a position paper (2-4 pages in the CHI Extended Abstracts format) related to your experience with respect to the workshop theme in your research practice, to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are welcome (but not required) to send in a free format appendix, movie, sketch, or application. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop, and for at least one conference day.
