The Disappearing Tabletop: Social and Technical Challenges for Cross-Surface Collaboration
|Organizers:||James R. Wallace, Steven Houben, Craig Anslow, Andrés Lucero, Yvonne Rogers, Stacey D. Scott|
Workshop Abstract: After 20 years of research, it is unclear what role the tabletop should play in the home or workplace. Progress has been made towards hardware and software interfaces, connectivity with nearby devices, and understanding human behaviour on and around the table — yet, in practice tabletops see limited use. This workshop seeks to explore the development and use of tabletops from historical, technical, and social perspectives. Workshop goals include synthesizing opinion and experience from new and established researchers on directions for tabletop research, and an open discussion of questions such as to what applications are tabletops best suited? and how can tabletops be better integrated into larger workflows and digital ecosystems?
