BCS HCI 2011 Workshop: Supporting Collaboration Through Multimodal and Cross-modal Interfaces
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:
Position papers (maximum 2 pages) detailing participants work in these
areas, their perspectives on the challenges, and approaches to
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
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
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.
