Hybrid user interfaces combine the visual and interaction spaces of complementary device technologies (such as augmented reality headsets and handheld devices) to take advantage of the strong points of each. The simultaneous use of multiple interactive devices with input and output capabilities offers a large design space for novel interaction techniques that can be applied to a wide range of application scenarios. Given the challenges presented by augmented and virtual reality head-worn displays, there has been an increasing research interest in hybrid user interfaces that combine augmented reality headsets with traditional devices such as smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers. However, prior research shows a fragmented landscape with inconsistencies in terminology, models, and technologies within this space and overlapping research streams such as cross-device interaction and distributed user interfaces. We invite academics, designers, and practitioners to help create a common understanding and explore the opportunities and challenges of hybrid user interfaces, thereby generating a research agenda for this nascent space.
Relevant topics with regard to hybrid user interfaces include, but are not limited to:
We invite the submission of position papers (2-4 pages), video showcases (3-5 minutes video and 1-2 pages abstract), or interactive demos (1-2 pages abstract, in-person participation required) in the IEEE Computer Society VGTC format to firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome contributions that are visionary, challenge existing definitions, or investigate new perspectives. The organizers will review submissions based on their quality, originality, and relevance to the workshop. Accepted submissions will be published with a DOI and citable link in the ISMAR 2023 adjunct proceedings and IEEE Xplore. Upon acceptance, at least one author of each submission must attend the workshop (i.e., register for the workshop and at least one day of the ISMAR 2023 conference) and will be expected to briefly present their work.
Submissions should not be anonymized and references do not count towards the page limit. When submitting your work to email@example.com, please clearly indicate if - upon acceptance of your submission - you plan to attend in person or remotely.
Due to the significant amount of remote participants from Europe, the workshop will be split into an earlier
