Distributed Display Environments compactly describes computer systems that present output to more than one physical display. Research methods and foci in this area have varied, but findings suggest that (1) continuing to define the relevant aspects of distributed display environments is worthwhile due to obvious and quantifiable benefits of these environments and (2) there are important aspects of interfaces that have been ignored in the past because of the assumption of a single-display output model.
Sample topics in this area include, but are not limited to, the following.
- Window Management and Task Management on Multiple-Monitor Systems
- Design and Evaluation of Visual Interfaces on Distributed Display Systems
- Design and Evaluation of Peripheral Awareness Displays and Interfaces
- Collaborative Use of Multiple Displays
For more detail, please consult the original workshop proposal. [html] [pdf]
- Determine promising areas for new interaction research about distributed display environments.
- Detail the aspects of incorporating passive information display into interfaces.
- Evaluation: determining the what to evaluate and how to evaluate it.
- Outline broader implications of the increasing ubiquity of distributed display environments to HCI research.
The purpose of this one-day workshop is dominated by a desire to explore the important research questions raised by the rising popularity of distributed display environments. Explicit discussion of each participant's past work in the area will play a minor role, although obviously past work is bound to be part of the discussions around each of the goals.
Therefore we will devote the majority of the 6-hour workshop to discussion of each of the four goals: each goal will receive one hour. Participants will be given a brief amount of time at the beginning of the workshop to cover previous work in the area and any important opinions about any of the four goals.
NOTE: DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME BEGINS SUNDAY. SET YOUR CLOCKS FORWARD ONE HOUR BEFORE GOING TO BED ON SATURDAY. OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE LATE TO THE WORKSHOP.

Note: The submission deadline has passed.
Interested individuals should submit a 2-page position paper. Papers should address any previous work that the author has conducted in the area and thoughts on the four outlined goals. Participants will be selected on strength in each of these areas and adherence to the 2-page limit.
