2nd Workshop on DUIs at CHI 2012


2nd Workshop on Distributed User Interfaces: Collaboration and Usability
(DUI 2012) at CHI 2012

ACM CHI 2012

Austin, Texas
May 5-10, 2012

Distributed User Interfaces (DUIs) have recently become a new field of
research and development in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). The DUIs
have brought about drastic changes affecting the way interactive systems
are conceived. DUIs have gone beyond the fact that user interfaces are
controlled by a single end user on the same computing platform in the same
environment. Traditional interaction is focused on the use of mobile
devices such as, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and so on, tearing apart
other environmental interaction resources such as large screens and
multi-tactile displays, or tables. Under a collaborative scenario, users
sharing common goals may take advantage of DUIs to carry out their tasks
because they provide a shared environment where they are allowed to
manipulate information in the same space at the same time. Under this
hypothesis, collaborative DUIs scenarios open new challenges to usability
evaluation techniques and methods. Thus, the goal of this workshop is to
promote the discussion about the emerging topic of DUIs, answering a set
of key questions: how collaboration can be improved by using DUI? , in
which situations a DUI is suitable to ease the collaboration among users?
, how usability standards can be employed to evaluate the usability of
systems based on DUIs?

– Conceptual models for DUIs
– DUIs on ubiquitous environments
– Distributed User Interface design
– Public display interaction and DUIs
– DUIs and coupled displays
– DUIs and ambient intelligence
– Human factors in DUIs design
– Collaboration and DUIs
– Usability evaluation in DUIs
– DUIs on learning environment

Participants are required to submit a 4 page position paper formatted
according to HCI Archive Format
Papers should be submitted through EasyChair
Please note that all workshop participants must register for both the
workshop and for at least one day of the CHI 2012 conference as workshops
are supposed to be a part of the CHI conference.
Extended versions of a selection of high quality papers will be proposed
to be submitted to a Special Issue of an International Journal in the
field of HCI.

Submission Deadline: 2012 January 23th, 2012 (extended)
Author Notification: February 10th, 2012
