Call for Participation [pdf]
Workshop AimsThis workshop seeks to explore performative aspects of ubiquitous and mobile technology when used in public settings. Based on the idea that interactions with technology conducted in public places may be understood in a 'performative' sense, this workshop seeks to examine the variety of technologies that support performative interactions; these can range from explicit performances by actors through to implicit 'performances' that are part of everyday actions. This broad topics includes such technologies as public or large displays, tangible systems, and mobile interfaces as they are used in various public settings such as outdoor urban settings, museums, galleries and exploratoria, and other mobile settings. This workshop will address these technologies by looking at user experience, spectator and performer roles, and the social acceptability of human performance in public spaces.
- Technologies for performative interaction1,2
- What technologies can be used to track performance?
- How might this tracking be interpreted or mapped to outputs?
- Evaluating User Experience
- How does performance affect user experience?
- How can this user experience be evaluated?
- Spectator/Performer Roles3
- How do spectators influence performative interface users?
- How can spectators participate in performance?
- Social Acceptability4
- What factors influence social acceptability
- How does social acceptability change over time?
SubmissionsWe invite authors interested in these topics to submit a camera ready paper of 2-4 pages using the UbiComp 2010 Submission Template for Papers and Notes. Papers should address at least one theme from this workshop in the format of a work in progress, early result, or theoretical position paper. Please submit papers by email to email@example.com.
The workshop will aim to produce a special issue of a journal and/or collectively authored journal paper(s). Authors of accepted papers will also be invited to attend a social network event on the evening of the workshop put together by the organizers that is not included in the workshop registration cost.
