BCS HCI 2011 Workshop: Supporting Collaboration Through Multimodal and Cross-modal Interfaces

http://ccmi.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/hciworkshop

http://www.usabilitynews.com/news/article7227.asp

Summary:
With growing possibilities of using various modalities in human-computer interaction comes new opportunities for supporting richer, more effective and engaging collaborations. The use of multiple modalities to support collaboration also presents new challenges for the design, implementation and evaluation of collaborative systems. This workshop aims to bring together interested experts to examine and explore the issues associated with these areas of research.

The workshop is part of the 25th BCS HCI Conference. We invite two forms of submissions to the workshop:

1. Position papers (maximum 2 pages) detailing participants work in these areas, their perspectives on the challenges, and approaches to overcoming them.

2. Posters and Demos (maximum 1 page) describing participants multimodal and cross-modal systems, techniques, user studies, etc.

Important dates:
1st May 2011 - Submission deadline

20th May 2011 - Notification of acceptance

2nd June 2011 - Deadline for final copy of accepted contributions

5th July 2011 - Workshop date

Submissions and all enquiries should be addressed to: oussama [at] eecs [dot] qmul [dot] ac [dot] uk

Workshop goals:
The aim of this workshop is to stimulate exchange and discussion over the use of multimodal and cross-modal techniques to support collaborative interaction. We wish to gather researchers and practitioners interested in the design and implementation of multimodal and cross-modal collaborative systems in order to:

• Promote networking between researchers and practitioners interested in the subject.

• Identify and survey current practices and approaches to using multimodal and cross-modal techniques to support collaboration.

• Identify issues associated with the design, implementation and evaluation of multimodal and cross-modal collaborative systems.

• Share examples of multimodal and cross-modal systems.

• Explore the potential of establishing a community of practice, including the identification of funding routes that contribute towards increasing networking and collaboration opportunities between the community.

Topics:
A non-exhaustive list of general topics for contributions to the workshop include:

• Design approaches and principles for multimodal and cross-modal collaborative systems

• Applications for multimodal and cross-modal collaborative interaction

• Novel multimodal devices and technologies

• Perceptual issues in multimodal and cross-modal interaction design

• Frameworks for evaluating multimodal and cross-modal collaborative systems

Publication of workshop proceedings:
Workshop position papers will be published in a third volume of the BCS HCI'11 Proceedings. This volume will contain the collected position papers / slides from the workshop and will be distributed to all conference and workshop participants.

Journal special issue
:
A further desired outcome of the workshop would be an invitation to participants to submit longer versions of their position papers for a special issue of a Journal on the topic of multimodal and cross-modal collaboration.
