We strongly believe in fostering communication between participants by providing various forms of interactivity during the workshop.

Opening and Introduction

Due to time constraints, we will omit long presentations of submitted papers during the workshop. Instead, we are going to have a “2-Minute-Madness”, where authors of position papers will present their work.In addition, all participants are free to present themselves in an elevator pitch (60s max). However, this is restricted to one presentation per research group. All presenters need to send powerpoint slides at least 24 hours before the workshop (Deadline: August, 31st, 2pm UTC+1 (time in Nottingham))

World Café

We will use the open questions from submitted papers to derive topics for a World Café and split the participants into three groups. During this session, participants will have the opportunity to get feedback for their work and discuss new ideas.

The three derived topics are
  1. Displays  – Focused Attention (not limited to vision)
  2. Displays – Periphery of Attention (not limited to vision)
  3. Interaction

Participants are invited to initially join a group and discuss about the topic for 20 minutes. No group should have less than 7 people. In the process, ideas will be written down and clustered if possible. In addition, hashtags should be added to the ideas to indicate different modalities (e.g. #vibro-tactile). After 20 minutes everyone has to join another table and reflect on the ideas already there as well as create new ideas. The last group should also think about how to group and present the ideas to the other participants. Participants do not have to stay with their initial group. However, they should join every table only once while no table should have less than 7 people around.

After three rounds of discussions, the group that is currently at each table should present the ideas of their table to the other participants (8min per table).

Group Work

Topics for the groups are
  1. Definition of Interaction with Ambient Displays
  2. Possible Applications Today
  3. Possible Applications in the Future
  4. Grand Challenges

Participants are free to join any group, as long as there is no group with less than 7 participants. They will work on their topic for 45min. We will provide quick and dirty prototyping supplies to help visualizing ideas and encourage especially participants in the groups B) and C) to use them. Afterwards, every group has about 8 minutes to present their ideas.

Wrap up Discussions

In the closing panel, we will explore the chance of future collaborations and publications within this group of researchers interested in adaptive ambient in-vehicle displays and interactions.
