Workshop on pervasive display infrastructures, interfaces and applications

Burlington Hotel, Dublin
May 7th, 2006



Call for Papers



Organised as part of the workshop program of PERVASIVE 2006


Call For Papers (Closed)

Workshop Theme

Displays, ranging in form factor from very small to very large, are rapidly becoming pervasive items in public and semi-public places such as shopping centres, banks, or hospitals. The combined use of displays and pervasive computing technologies creates the opportunity to build infrastructures in which displays are used to create strongly situated systems that reflect the nature of the place and the social interactions that occur.

This workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of disciplines with the goal to identify and discuss issues related to the design, implementation, use and evaluation of pervasive display infrastructures. A particular aim is to identify design criteria for situated displays and display infrastructures.

Attendance will be by invitation only. The participants will be selected on the basis of a submitted paper describing their experience in the field or ongoing research. Submissions will be reviewed by the workshop organizers and outside experts. We welcome participants from all disciplines that are related to pervasive display environments, including but not limited to engineering, human-computer interaction, industrial design, and business.


We invite submissions that report on theoretical and practical findings related to the following topics:

  • Display systems
    • Wall-sized display and steerable projectors
    • Virtual rear projection displays
    • Context-aware displays
  • Software infrastructures for situated and pervasive displays
  • Interaction models and techniques
    • Combined use of public displays with mobile devices
    • Interaction affordances
    • Fair sharing between multiple users
  • Display-based applications
  • Evaluation criteria & design guidelines
  • Integration of displays and ambient intelligence
