4th International Workshop on Physicality to take place in Birmingham

Physicality 2012 is the 4th International Workshop aimed at exploring design challenges, theories and experiences in developing new forms of interactions that exploit human physical interaction with digital technology. Physicality-based interactions extend feedback beyond the visual, thus emulating the experiences gained through our interaction with the world via our non-visual senses and control capabilities such as gesture, speech, touch and haptic. Also, the body parts used for interaction stretch out from the finger to the palm, arm and even the whole body.

This multi-disciplinary workshop will bring together researchers from industry and academia. We welcome participation from designers and technologists, artists and architects, researchers in tangible interaction and organic user interfaces, psychologists, philosophers and social scientists, and indeed, all excited by learning from the latest works and experiences in this field.

Fabian Hemmert will be giving the keynote. Fabian’s work includes mobiles that change shape, shift weight and beat like a heart and has been reported widely including as a TED talk.
