ACM ISS 2022
Sun 20 - Thu 24 November 2022 Wellington, New Zealand

The main goal of this workshop will be to focus on understanding the benefits and applications of immersive interactive spaces and surfaces (e.g. body, walls, smartphones or other interactive surfaces such as tabletops) for enhancing human sensemaking. The goal is to create a research community who will collaborate toward this focus in the future to define, for instance, key research questions, new application areas, and novel evaluation methods.

Call for Participation

What is this workshop about?

The workshop on Immersive Analytics Spaces and Surfaces will take place at ISS 2022. The main goal of this workshop is to better understand the benefits and applications of immersive interactive spaces and surfaces (e.g. body, walls, smartphones or other interactive surfaces such as tabletops) for enhancing sensemaking processes. The workshop will provide a stimulating environment for interactions and discussions among researchers from Immersive Analytics and other related fields. Early-career researchers and PhD students are strongly encouraged to participate to broaden their networks and explore new research directions.

Who should attend this workshop?

Immersive Analytics’s traction has grown in the last five years, with several workshops organized in various venues including VIS 2018, ISS 2019, CHI 2019, CHI 2020, and CHI 2022. While researchers have acknowledged the potential of immersive technologies for data analytics, there are still important research directions to explore in order to deeply understand where the Immersive Analytics stands and how to increase its adoption into real-world applications. Immersive Analytics makes use of wearable AR/VR/MR displays to visualise data within the world around us. The spatial dimension is therefore one of the key factors in the definition of Immersive Analytics. We believe that directinga concerted focus on the benefits of interactive surfaces and spaces for sensemaking processes will help us define the new research agenda of Immersive Analytics field.

How is the workshop structured?

The workshop will consist of interleaved world café sessions and lightning talks, including both in-person and remote participants. Remote participants will be invited to join in either the morning or afternoon sessions to limit ’Zoom fatigue’ and to accommodate time zones differences. The discussions will focus on identifying the key principles, theories, and evidence that support the proposed benefits of interactive spaces and surfaces for Immersive Analytics, as well as identifying gaps in literature.
