The 3rd JRC ECML workshop on Collaborative Human Computer Interaction with Big Wall Displays took place in the European Crisis Management Laboratory (ECML) of the European Commission Joint Research Centre in Ispra, Italy, from 18 to 19 April 2013.
The purpose was the presentation, demonstration, and exploration of human computer interaction techniques, design considerations and prototypes for supporting collaborative tasks at hand in high level situation monitoring and crisis management rooms equipped with a large display areas (context: humanitarian aid and civil protection).

Goals

• Presentations and demonstrations of collaborative task execution and information processing scenarios
• Key goal: identification of tasks beyond displaying information that benefit of large displays 

Design Challenge

A scenario based design challenge for ICT solutions for crisis room operations was sent out to colleagues from academia. Combined with a collaborative assessment discussion on presented ideas the workshop will identify promising directions for fostering the benefit of big wall displays to support collaboration in crisis rooms. Please see invitation to academia:
[ JRC-ECML-BigWallHCI-Workshop-Invitation-Academia.pdf ]

Position statements, design considerations, and prototypes presented at the workshop were:

  • Organising information on big walls - human perception and large displays.
    Prof. Margit Pohl, Vienna University of Technology, AT

  • Perceptual affordances of wall-sized displays for visualization applications.
    Dr. Anastasia Bezerianos, LRI & Dr. Petra Isenberg, INRIA, Université Paris-Sud, FR

  • Collaborative interactions in future crisis rooms.
    Prof. Johannes Schöning, University College London, UK & Hasselt University, BE

  • The interplay between personal and collaborative computing at big wall displays.
    Prof. Kim Halskov & Dr. Clemens Klokmose, Aarhus University, DK

  • Multi-user twitter analysis for crisis room environments.
    Simon Butscher & Prof. Harald Reiterer, Konstanz University, DE

  • The CrisisWall application.
    Dr. Tom De Groeve, European Commission, Joint Research Centre, IT

  • Collaborative situational report production on big wall displays.
    Dr. Peter Judmaier, University of Applied Sciences St. Pölten, AT

  • Situation reporting as co-creation of prospective interpretations with situated visualizations and crafted abstractions.
    Prof. Jonas Landgren, Chalmers University of Technology, SE

Target Audience

The workshop brought together 4 stakeholders in the design, development, and use of ICT tools in crisis room operation:
1. Academia experts of fields including: HCI, CSCW, InfoVis & VA, IxD, UxD, UID
2. Manufacturers & technology providers of big wall displays and respective ICT systems for their operation

  • Barco: Guy Van Wijmeersch, Design Director, Barco Headquarters, BE
  • Barco: Paolo Bravin, Country & Sales Director, Barco Italy, IT
  • eyevis: Mark Schmidt, Director IT Department, eyevis Headquarters, DE

3. Practitioners of information analysis and crisis management, many operating national or European situation rooms [number of participants]:

4. JRC staff operating the ECML, providing information analysis and early warning systems to the United Nations, the European Commission, EU member states, and the humanitarian and disaster relief community.

Registration

The number of participants is limited to 35. Participants need to register by 28 March 2013 (deadline to update your registration). Please go to the registration website and provide the necessary information: https://jrc-meeting-registration.jrc.ec.europa.eu/

If you wonder why your passport number is requested, please keep in mind that the JRC Ispra is still a nuclear site and therefore security measures are high. Thanks for your understanding.

Participation is free of charge. The JRC takes care of taxi transfers between nearby airports and train stations, the JRC, and the hotels in the area. In the registration system three hotels are mentioned where some rooms have been blocked. Social dinner and lunch are courtesy of the JRC. Accommodation and travel costs are at the participants' expenses.

Please, do not hesitate to contact us by email if you are interested to participate as an observer, practitioner, or technology provider.
