Collaborative video searching on a tabletop

Alan F. Smeaton, Hyowon Lee, Colum Foley, Sinéad McGivney
2006 Multimedia Systems  
In this paper we present a tabletop system for supporting a pair of users in a video search task and we evaluate the system not only in terms of search performance but also in terms of user-user interaction  ...  When a tabletop is used as the interface for a multimedia system, such as a video search system, then this kind of direct collaboration raises many questions for system design.  ...  In our work, co-located collaborative searching on a tabletop, multiple users conduct a search task around a tabletop interface while talking, suggesting, discussing and interacting with each other.  ...

Supporting opportunistic search in meetings with tangible tabletop

Nan Li, Frédéric Kaplan, Omar Mubin, Pierre Dillenbourg
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 ACM annual conference extended abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems Extended Abstracts - CHI EA '12  
We propose an augmented tangible tabletop system with a semi-ambient conversation-context-aware surface as well as foldable paper browsers for supporting opportunistic search in collocated meetings.  ...  This kind of search can be referred to as opportunistic search. The area of opportunistic search in meetings has not yet been studied. Our research is based upon this motivation.  ...  WeSearch [3] and WebSurface [6] both aimed at providing a tabletop environment for conducting efficient collaborative Web search tasks.  ...

In this paper, we present our design explorations with user study, and answer some of the major design questions for such systems.  ...  In some cases people even need to search these unexpected terms in the Web. This phenomenon is called opportunistic search.  ...  In this paper, we will present our explorations for the design of opportunistic search meeting support systems with tabletop display.  ...

Subtle and Personal Workspace Requirements for Visual Search Tasks on Public Displays

James R. Wallace, Ariel Weingarten, Edward Lank
2017 Proceedings of the 2017 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '17  
Our results show that users of public displays use one of two strategies for visual search tasks: minimizers create a small window and work up close to the display, and maximizers expand content to its  ...  We explore how users approach and define personal space on large, public displays.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This research was funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.  ...

Supporting offline activities on interactive surfaces

Augusto Esteves, Michelle Scott, Ian Oakley
2013 Proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction - TEI '13  
This paper argues that inherent support for offline activities -activities that are not sensed by the system -is one of strongest benefits of tangible interaction over more traditional interface paradigms  ...  To focus its exploration, it looks at offline activities in terms of how they support cognitive work, such as aiding exploration of problem spaces or lowering task complexity.  ...  It is composed of a set of physical tokens that are set up on an interactive tabletop surface.  ...
