Workshop on ‘Situated Interaction in Ubiquitous Computing’ at CHI 2000, 3rd of April 2000

Workshop on
‘Situated Interaction in Ubiquitous Computing’

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners who are concerned with design, development, and implementation of novel interfaces for mobile devices and environment-based appliances.

The availability of sensing technology provides the opportunity to include information about the situation of use as well as the surrounding environment (e.g. location, proximity, physical conditions, social setting, context, etc.) in human computer interaction. Situated interaction is especially attractive for mobile devices that are used while on the move e.g.

  • PDAs
  • wearable computers
  • smart mobile phones,

and for shared appliances in common spaces, e.g.

  • city information systems,
  • ticket machines,
  • self-service check-in counters.

The main goal of the workshop is to develop an understanding of how the situation of use does influence the interaction process.
