Guidelines for participants


Presentations should be about 10 minutes long with a few additional minutes at the end for questions.

Group discussions will focus on the classification of existing technologies and applications as well as an in-depth analysis of how well they support individual and group work. Another important objective is to identify key design elements that can help to categorise the vast range of situated displays systems. This outcome would be very important to enlighten future developments and facilitate comparison between existing approaches. Participants may submit additional topics that they would like to discuss during the workshop. Suggestions should be sent to rui at and include an expected outcome.
