Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Sketching is a physical activity: moving a stylus to create marks on paper or screen, from mind to visual output. But sketching can also translate to the virtual space. When we sketch collaboratively, we look for cues, exchange ideas, and annotate work via mark-making or comment. The digital medium has evolved to explore the potentials of sketching online, and this Special Interest Group aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in Sketching in HCI to explore the new virtual landscape of sketching, popularised by the constraints of the current world situation. We invite you to join our virtual group, discuss and share sketches, query the existing state-of-the-art, and help pave the way for the development of this medium in the virtual space with your imagery and ideation.
