The organisers have recently co-organised a range of workshops that explored facets of collocated interaction. In this workshop we seek to build on recent workshops by bringing together expertise in tabletop, mobile, and wearable technologies with social interaction research, to address new and emerging challenges in diverse CSCW domains from casual face-to-face settings to collaborative work environments.

Joel Fischer

Joel E. Fischer is an Assistant Professor at the School of Computer Science and a member of the Mixed Reality Laboratory at The University of Nottingham. His research focuses on understanding and supporting human activities and sense-making in collaborative real-world domains. He has co-organised workshops on collocated interaction at CHI, MobileHCI, NordiCHI and ECSCW. His research has been published at leading conferences in HCI (e.g. CHI, UbiComp, CSCW), and and has received Best Paper Awards at CHI ‘13 and AAMAS ‘15.

Martin Porcheron

Martin Porcheron is a PhD Student in the Mixed Reality Laboratory at The University of Nottingham. His work has focused on the use of mobile devices within collocated groups. His research includes examining the social implications of mobile device use and the positioning of mobile devices as resources that people can draw upon in conversations.

Andrés Lucero

Andrés Lucero is an Associate Professor of Interaction Design at the University of Southern Denmark in Kolding. His recent work at Nokia focused on the design and evaluation of novel interaction techniques for mobile collocated interactions. He has recently co-organised successful workshops at CHI ’15, MobileHCI ’15, and ITS ’15.

Aaron Qugiley

Professor Aaron Quigley is the Chair of Human Computer Interaction and deputy Head of School in Computer Science at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. He is co-founder and director of SACHI, the St Andrews Computer Human Interaction research group. His research interests include surface and multi-display computing, human computer interaction, pervasive and ubiquitous computing and information visualisation. He has published over 150 internationally peer-reviewed publications during his time holding academic and industry appointments in Australia, Japan, USA, Germany, Ireland and the UK. Aaron has been the general co-chair for ACM MobileHCI 2014, ACM UIST 2013 and ACM ITS 2013. He is the current chair of the MobileHCI steering committee and serves as the ACM SIGCHI Adjunct Chair for Specialised Conferences.

Stacey Scott

Stacey D. Scott is an Associate Professor of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo in Canada. Her research focuses on human-computer interaction and computer-supported collaboration, with a special interest in developing technologies that enhance human-human interaction in face-to-face environments. She has been researching co-located collaboration technologies, including interactive tabletops and walls, and multi-surface systems, for over 15 years. She has co-organized five previous CSCW workshops (2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2015).

Luigina Ciolfi

Luigina Ciolfi is a Reader in Communication at C3RI – The Cultural, Communication and Computing Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University. Her research focuses on technologies to support human interaction within the physical space, based on an understanding of the relationship between people, activities and their locales. She has organised a several international workshops (at venues such as CHI, CSCW and ECSCW) on topics from museum technologies and ubiquitous computing to mobile work. She is the author of over 80 peer reviewed publications in the human-centred computing domain, and has served in numerous service roles for international conferences.

John Rooksby

John Rooksby is a Research Associate in Computer Science at the The University of Glasgow. His research focuses on everyday life, and how technology features within this. His recent work on co-located interaction includes video studies of photocopying and people watching television (published at CSCW and ECSCW respectively).

Nemanja Memarovic

Nemanja Memarovic is a Postdoc at People and Computing lab at the University of Zurich. His research focuses on how human interactions in public spaces may be enhanced through networked public displays. He has co-organised workshops on collocated interaction at NordiCHI ’14 and at UbiComp ’12 and ’13, and he is a regular PC member for PerDis.
