Program of the Workshop

Goal of the workshop

The topic of this workshop is placed in the field of interaction design. The goal is on one hand to elaborate new applications for a tabletop-interaction system, but also to work out scenarios for user tests for this and another collaboration set-up, which will be introduced during the workshop.

This workshop will be conducted by two universities – ETH Zurich and Chalmers University Gothenburg.

This workshop takes place on June 13th and June 14th (9.00-12.00h, 13.00-16.30h), 2006 at Chalmers University, Gothenburg. It is open to all interested people. Ideally but not necessary, the participants have a background in the field of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI), or experience in conducting user studies of hardware prototypes. The workshop is organized and moderated by Martin Küchler and Ramon Hofer, who are PhD. Students at the ICVR of ETH Zurich. Martin Küchler designs hardware prototypes which support spatially distributed groups in remote collaboration processes. Ramon Hofer is starting a project on tangible user interfaces (haptics), which will support the selling process of complex products.

Call for the PhD workshop:

Dear colleague,

This is the first call for a second Ph.D. workshop on Virtual Reality, to take place at Chalmers, Gothenburg, 13-14 June 2006. The workshop is enabled through a STINT stipend granted for research collaboration between the Innovation Center Virtual Reality (ICVR) at ETH Zurich and the Interaction Design Group (IDC), CSE, Chalmers.

If you should be interested in taking part in this workshop, please inform me briefly , giving your name, affiliation/position, and area of interest.
Please forward this call to anyone else who might have interest as well.

Intended public: PhD and MSc students in Interaction Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Computer Graphics.

Affiliation: Student/researchers from Chalmers and ETH, but people from other universities/industry are also welcome.

Teachers: Morten Fjeld, Chalmers. Martin Kuechler (ETHZ), Ramon Hofer (ETHZ)

Issues to be covered : Designing a new system for tabletop interaction; design several user tests for objective system evaluation.

Teaching forms:Exercises, Brainstorming/Discussion

Estimated teaching time :2 days, each day 6 hours.

A few impressions of the workshops in Gothenburg and Zurich 

This was the first net-based workshop between Chalmers and ETH Zurich. Groups worked simultaneously at Chalmers and Zurich and had a full-time video/audio connection between both sides.
