The workshop was held in a hybrid manner on Aug. 30th. We had 50% participants onsite in Bari and 50% remote attendance.
The workshop attendees are now revising their papers. The final reviewed versions will be included in the LNCS workshop volume to be published by the end of 2021. If you are interested, please contact one of the organizers.
This workshop is open to everyone who is interested in the aspects related to the design, the engineering, the evaluation, the deployment, the maintenance and the certification of control rooms.
We invite participants to present position papers describing real-life case studies that illustrate, if possible, how a new technology would enhance control room operations. They could also highlight the trade-offs between two or more properties of interactive systems such as user experience and dependability or usability and security. The way the new technology will be addressing some known or envisioned problem in a control should be presented in the contribution. We are also interested in methods, theories and tools for control rooms development as long as they address some user interface properties.
Submission new deadline: May 16th
Notification to authors: May 30th
Camera ready: June 11th
Workshop: August 30th Full day
Tentative Schedule for the Workshop
The workshop will be run in an hybrid mode i.e. with a group of participants attending remotely and another group onsite.

Some Specificities of Control Rooms
Their operations are usually defined and regularly assessed by regulatory authorities
Their deployment requires the acquisition of a certification from external organizations
Failures in the display and control system might have catastrophic consequences on people and goods
This workshop promotes sharing of experiences in designing, implementing, and evaluating interactive systems in control rooms. We are especially interested by contributions presenting theories, methods, and approaches for considering them as pervasive computing environments and interdependencies between all the properties listed above. In this workshop we consider control rooms in their broader sense including (ship) bridges, cockpits, and operating rooms.
Structure of the Workshop
[Currently: physical presentation and participation]
If circumstances require it, we intend to switch to a completely digital format that will be run online. We will continuously adapt to any decision regarding the conference format by the INTERACT 2021 organizers A video conferencing system will be used if we need to move to virtual
