Nigel Davies, Rui Jose, Nemanja Memarovic, Ivan Elhart, and Sarah Clinch organize a workshop on developing publications for public display networks. With significant reductions in the cost of large LCD screens, public displays are proliferating in urban spaces. It is not hard to imagine that they will soon be networked and connected over the Internet, constituting a novel and powerful communication medium pervasive display networks open to a wide range of applications and content. The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts from a variety of domains, i.e., UbiComp, HCI, Software Engineering, User Experience, and Public Displays to exchange ideas and discuss opportunities and challenges in creating applications for pervasive display networks. Overall, the goal of the workshop is to setup a meeting point for the people working on pervasive display networks as well as to create a common understanding and set the goals and challenges for further research on the topic of developing applications for pervasive display networks.
