CFP: Data-Centric Interactions on the Web (DCI 2011) @ INTERACT 2011


Data-Centric Interactions on the Web (DCI 2011)

International Workshop at the 13th IFIP TC13 Conference on 
Human-Computer Interaction (INTERACT 2011)
September 5-9, 2011, Lisbon, Portugal

*** Workshop Theme ***

Massive amounts of data have been published on the web in the last years 
and more and more data is added each day. Not only do companies, 
organizations, and governments make their data increasingly available on 
the web, but so do users who publish data online, either for themselves, 
their colleagues and friends, or even the general public.

Whereas several standards and best practices for the publication and 
linking of data on the web have been defined in the past, relatively 
little efforts have been made to systematically investigate concepts and 
principles to interact with this data. Reoccurring interaction problems 
are differently solved and more general design recommendations and 
guidelines are just beginning to emerge. A need for reusable design 
patterns and interaction techniques as well as novel ideas, tools, and 
methods to present web data to the users is clearly recognizable

These and related issues of data-centric interactions on the web are 
addressed by the workshop. Topics of interest include but are not 
limited to:

     * Data-driven design, generation, and integration of web user 
     * Adaptation and personalization of data-centric web interactions
     * Social tagging interfaces and folksonomy visualizations
     * Mashups, widgets, and widget toolkits for web data
     * Interaction with embedded web data (e.g., microformats, 
microdata, RDFa)
     * Linked data viewers, browsers, and editors
     * Interaction with geodata (e.g., geotagging, geocoding) and web 
     * Tools and methods for the development of data-centric web user 
     * Design patterns for data-centric interactions on the web

*** Target Audience ***

We aim to bring together researchers, developers, and designers with a 
shared interest in data-centric interactions on the web. As several 
research areas are affected by the workshop theme, we expect 
participants from various backgrounds and communities to attend. The 
workshop will provide an interdisciplinary forum to exchange experiences 
and ideas and to discuss novel research results and future developments 
regarding data-centric interactions on the web.

*** Submission Guidelines ***

Prospective participants should submit a 2-page position paper 
describing their contribution to the topic of the workshop. We will 
select participants based on the paper's quality and the diversity of 
their backgrounds. The selected authors will be asked to provide 
extended versions (4-10 pages, depending on the type of paper: system 
demonstration, position paper, full paper) one month before the 
workshop. Accepted submissions will be published in the CEUR-WS series.

Please send your submissions to and use for all other inquiries.
