CHI2014 Workshop: Interaction and Architectural Space (April 2014, Toronto Canada)

Dates: 26-27 April 2014
Location: Toronto, Canada
Website: http://interactioninspaceworkshop.blogspot.com
Deadline for submissions: 10 January 2014

Our awareness of space and its role in the interaction process is becoming more distinct as we move from the earliest two-dimensional graphical user interface, through to games & virtual reality, and now emerging into mobile computing, urban computing, ambient computing, tangible computing and ubiquitous computing.

This workshop will bring together expertise from architecture and human computer interaction to foreground the role of space in the CHI community. We welcome participants from a range of disciplines including architecture, environmental and human factors psychology, computing, HCI, interaction design, digital arts, geography and cognitive science, as they all contribute to research on Interaction in Architectural Space.  As the workshop intends to bring together a community of researchers and designers who are creating interactive technologies in spatial settings, it invites any high-quality contributions relevant to the workshop topic.

This workshop will be running over 2 days. The first day will consist of a mix of observations, analysis of and suggested interventions for spaces within Toronto. The second day will present findings and identify a research agenda by asking the following questions:

How will digital media change the spatial experience?

How will interaction change to adapt to space?

Participants are welcomed from a range of disciplines including architecture, environmental psychology, computing, HCI, interaction design, digital arts, geography and cognitive science.

What to submit?
Participants should submit a two-to-four-page position paper or site-specific intervention or design proposals to n.dalton@open.ac.uk by 10th Jan 2014. These will be peer reviewed by an interdisciplinary review-committee. One author of each accepted paper will need to register for the workshop. All workshop participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the main conference. Site plans and data will be available for the target space from (http://interactioninspaceworkshop.blogspot.com) in the near future.
