Call for Book Chapters: Collaboration Meets Interactive Spaces (CMIS)


The vast screen real estate, which is provided in large-scale interaction environments presents novel ways to visualize and interact with data-rich models. In parallel to this technological revolution, interactive surfaces and devices have also become widespread in different sizes and devices ranging from large-scale walls, touch surfaces to wearable computing devices. Indeed, the ISSand HCI communities have witnessed, in recent years, an increased usage of interactive large-scale walls, touch displays, tabletops, mobiles (e.g. tablets and smart phones), and wearable devices (e.g. watches, glasses).

The opportunities for innovation exist, but the ITS/ISS and HCI communities have not yet thoroughly addressed the problem of bringing effective collaboration activities using multiple interactive surfaces and devices, especially in complex work domains. Of particular interest is the potential synergy that one can obtain by effectively combining different-sized surfaces and devices, within different spaces.

We call for book chapters on Collaboration Meets Interactive Spaces (CMIS), to be published by Springer in 2016.

Call for Chapters:

We invite researchers and designers who have been involved in one or more design-oriented project(s) involving the study of collaborative activities around all sorts of interactive surfaces and spaces. Possible topics for book chapters include, but are not limited to:

  • Design and evaluation of collaborative environments with interactive surfaces and devices, either remotely or co-located;
  • Collaborative applications on interactive surfaces for different domains (e.g. meeting rooms, 3D visualization, mechanical engineering, medical visualizations, emergency response scenarios, criminal intelligence, education, in the classroom);
  • Communication, cooperation and coordination as well as social protocols;
  • Interactive surfaces and devices to enhance spatial perception of content and/or support navigation during collaboration activities;
  • Issues when moving from desktop-based collaboration to large-scale walls, tabletops, touch-based mobile devices, and wearable computing devices;
  • Integration of different devices and surfaces (Walls, Tables, Mobiles, Wearables) for collaboration;
  • Physical navigation and interaction between different devices;
  • Collaboration with large, pervasive, ubiquitous displays;
  • Collaboration paradigms and user interface designs that address enhancement of collaborative activities using interactive surfaces, walls, tabletops, mobiles, and wearables;
  • Collaborative sense making and visual analytics with different interactive surfaces and devices;
  • Theories and applications of social science for interactive surfaces and devices.
  • Proxemics using multiple interactive surfaces and spaces
  • Customer collaboration in multiple surface retail environments
  • Collaboration patterns with interactive surfaces and spaces
