Following extended discussion amongst the PerDis organising and steering committees, we have decided not to hold PerDis 2020 physically in Manchester, UK. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority and based on information from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) we have decided that a physical event in Manchester this June would be inadvisable.
We are now thinking about what we do with this situation, and are currently discussing alternative formats, and we will let you know here as soon as we have more information.
About PerDis 2020
The Ninth ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays (PerDis) will take place in Manchester, UK. PerDis brings together researchers from various disciplines with a common interest on the opportunities and challenges raised by the emergence of pervasive display systems as a new communication medium for public and semi-public spaces. As a targeted topic venue, Pervasive Displays offers participants a unique opportunity to network with a diverse but focused research community, resulting in an extremely lively event with all the energy and excitement that characterizes the emergence of a new research area. Previous symposia were organized by the Università degli Studi di Palermo, Italy (2019), University of Munich (LMU) Munich, Germany (2018), the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) Lugano, Switzerland (2017), the University of Oulu, Finland (2016), the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Saarbrücken, Germany (2015), the University of Copenhagen in Denmark (2014), by Google in Mountain View, CA, USA (2013) and by the University of Minho in Porto, Portugal (2012).
The Symposium on Pervasive Displays welcomes work on all areas pertaining to digital displays including, but not limited to:
- Novel technologies and new forms of pervasive displays
- Interfaces and interaction techniques
- Media façades and architecture
- Content design and information visualisation
- Research methods for pervasive displays
- Art installations
- Evaluations, case studies, deployments, and experience reports
- Audience behaviour
- Usable privacy for public displays
- System architectures and infrastructure
- Frameworks and toolkits for developing pervasive display applications
Call for Papers
Digital displays have become pervasive to our everyday lives. They belong to our living and working environments and are relevant to many areas of research, including: advertising, architecture, art, computing, design, engineering, entertainment, human-computer interaction, retail, sociology, and urban life. The ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays is the premier venue for advances in research, technologies, and applications related to pervasive displays. We invite both academics and practitioners in this multi-disciplinary venue that allows discussion of challenges, innovations, and achievements from diverse perspectives in a single-track conference format. This year's conference aims to continue the tradition of innovation and excellence in research established by previous Pervasive Displays symposia - see here for more details on the submission process.
Call for Posters, Demos, and Videos
Building on the success of the previous PerDis events, we are pleased to announce the call for posters, demos, and video submissions. We invite material that reports on cutting-edge research in the broad spectrum of pervasive displays, from large interactive walls to wearable displays and immersive technologies, public installations to personalised signage, and theory through to deployment experiences.
The adjunct program presents an opportunity to publish late-breaking results, technical descriptions, installations, smaller research contributions, and works-in-progress in a concise format. PerDis 2020 welcomes posters, demonstrations and arts, as well as video submissions on all areas pertaining to displays including, but not limited to:
Content design and information visualisation
Evaluations, case studies, deployments and experience reports
Interfaces and interaction techniques
Novel technologies and new forms of pervasive displays
System architectures and infrastructure
Frameworks and toolkits for developing pervasive display applications
Research methods for pervasive displays
Media facades and architecture
Poster submissions should consist of original work that has not been previously published or concurrently under consideration for any other conference, workshop, journal, or other publication with an ISBN, ISSN or DOI number. PerDis 2020 considers video and demo submissions of work which has been previously presented at another conference. Please see the submission page for more details.
All material will be reviewed by an international panel of experts in the field of pervasive displays.
Posters, demonstrations and videos be submitted by April 3, 2020. See here for more details.
