Workshop topics

The workshop is intended to be a forum to share ideas that will help shape the future of interpersonal interactions at work and beyond, and to rethink the role of UbiComp as an enabler of new experiential and generative possibilities within the realm of the new blended experiences likely to emerge due to hybrid work and social arrangements. The main topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Development of robust models that capture people’s psychological aspects and social response to remote/hybrid arrange- ments (e.g., isolation, fatigue, stress, or burnout)
  • Methods and techniques for conducting in-the-wild studies, remote/hybrid data collection, and multi-modal sensing
  • Re-imagining creative and novel technological modalities to support blended experiences (e.g., conversational interfaces, wearables, textiles, eXtended reality)
  • Evaluation of security, privacy, and workplace surveillance in developing UbiComp technologies for blended experiences

Submission format

We plan for a full-day virtual workshop with submissions (4-6 pages, excluding references) that include completed and ongoing research works as well as position papers.
