Abstract

Technological advances in lighting lead towards the development of intelligent LED systems and require reconsidering the way we interact with lighting systems. In this paper, we report on the workshop ‘User Interaction Techniques for Future Lighting System’ that was held in conjunction with INTERACT 2011 in Lisbon, Portugal. It was organized to initiate a dialogue between HCI researchers in the lighting domain and establish a research community around this emerging topic, as few researchers systematically study this matter. The goal of the workshop was to formulate the key research challenges for user interaction with future lighting systems. This paper summarizes the workshop paper contributions and the results of a creative session held during the workshop. Moreover, we present an initial list of research challenges for this emerging field.
