2nd Annual Symposium on Communicating Complex Information

February 25-26, 2013
East Carolina University
Greenville NC


Building on the success of the 2012 conference, the Symposium on Communicating Complex Information (SCCI) explores the relationships between and within the contexts that affect complex information, information design, information architecture, user experience, and usability. It seeks to examine how design choices influence peoples behavior when interacting with complex information, and how the knowledge of situation contexts improves the design of complex information systems. The intention of SCCI is to foster an integrated approach to the design of complex information by bringing together members of the various research and practitioner communities.

The future will see the design of information and communication technologies that serve ever more complex purposes and problems. For these technologies, creating user centered design is particularly challenging when users are engaged in sophisticated knowledge work and collaborations and do not want to become power users to conduct this work electronically. Goals of this workshop are to clarify what we already know about communicating complex information and clarify our understanding of what issues urgently need further research.

We hope to reach new insights about
-- The current major research issues that need to be addressed
-- Ways to transform research into practical applications

We want this workshop to maximize the exchange of information and ideas among the participants. The 2-day workshop will feature a highly interactive format with each participant giving a 15-20 minute presentation followed by a 20-30 minute discussion. We wish to encourage high interactivity and in-depth discussion about each topic.

Keynote address will be by Tharon Howard, Clemson University.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
