1. CALL FOR PAPERS

Goal:

The objective of this workshop is to draw attention to the emerging field of smart material interfaces which spans the areas of design, engineering and architecture. These novel composites, which in some cases are already celebrated as the answer for the 21st. century’s technological needs, are generally referred to as materials that are capable of sensing the environment and actively responding to by changing their physical properties, such as shape, size and color.
The workshop aims at stimulating research and development in interfaces that make novel use of smart materials, and will provide a platform for state-of-the-art design of smart material interfaces. In order to establish a rich live demo session throughout the conference we want to particularly encourage the submission of research that includes physical live demonstrators and experimental prototypes.

 

Topic Keywords:

Smart material interfaces, reality-based interfaces, organic user interfaces, programmable matter, smart textiles.

Topics of interest:

We invite original contributions in a variety of areas related to interaction design and development of interfaces that makes use of SMART MATERIALS. The main topic of interest is the application of smart materials in designing and building interfaces that communicate information to the user – or allow the user to manipulate information – using different modalities provided by the material’s properties.We invite original contributions in a variety of areas related to interaction design and development of interfaces that makes use of SMART MATERIALS.

2. ABOUT SMART MATERIAL INTERFACES

With the use of smart materials, SMI attempts to overcome the
limitation of traditional and tangible interfaces. SMI focuses on changing the physical reality around the user as the output of interaction and/or computation as well as being used as input device.
SMI promotes a tighter coupling between the information displayed and the display itself by using the tangible interface as the control and display at the same time – embedding the information directly inside the physical object. It uses the physicality of the object as a way to deliver information.
Utilizing smart materials’ properties, SMI can support cohesive
interaction by maintaining both channels (input and output) on the same object of interaction. The interaction constructed in this way will grant the user a continuous perception of the object and of the output.
