ACM TVX 2018 offers a set of workshops designed to appeal to our audience of researchers and practitioners in the TV User Experience field. Workshops will take place on June 26th 2018, the day prior to the main ACM TVX2018 conference program.

Workshops are free of charge for the attendees of the main conference. If you are not planning to register for the whole conference, a special fee will be made available for workshop attendance only. Please note that in some cases, workshops can only be attended if you’ve submitted a workshop paper which has been accepted.

Available workshops

Care TVX: Challenges and Design to Improve TV in in-hospital environment and for visually impaired people


Université de Nantes: Toinon Vigier, Patrick Le Callet, Pierre Lebranchu, Samuel Bulteau
Hanyang University: Jieun Kim, Hokyoung Ryu
Sungkyunkwan University: Seongil Lee


An increasingly rich range of features and functionality is now available through smart televisions, interactive and immersive multimedia. These new technologies disrupt most of our social and individual attitudes, practices and experiences in everyday life, at home, at work or at school, in transport, etc. What about in hospital and for aged patient population?
The workshop aims to address:

  • How new media experience and contents can improve the in-hospital experience of in-patients, caregivers, and medical staff;
  • How better understanding of visual impairments (e.g. for elderly) can help to design more inclusive TV experience.

This one-day workshop on ”Care TVX now playing” will bring together media contents developers, designers, and UI/UX/QoE researchers, with medical researchers and hospital practitioners.


The workshop will be held on June, 26th from 1pm to 5:30pm.

In this workshop a diverse group of researchers and practitioners for focused discussion and knowledge sharing in 360° video storytelling and virtual reality is brought together. During the morning session, researchers from three different institutions will first present an overview of their work on VR and the practical and theoretical issues that they have been confronted with. There will be presentations by five participants whose papers were accepted in the workshop. In the afternoon sessions, participants can choose to focus on one of the three workshop themes that are introduced below. In the final part of this full day workshop, all researchers will join forces again to discuss the outcomes of their explorations. Covered aspects are 360° video streaming and 360° storytelling, virtual reality, immersive user experience, and its creative applications.

Somewhere between Search and Recommendation: An Alternative Thinking for Video Content Discovery Method


Kookmin University: Sung Woo Kim
CJ Hello: Sanguine Kim (UX Team, Manager & Team Lead) & Donghee Kim (UX Team, Senior Analyst)


This is a half-day design workshop to find an alternative to conventional content discovery method in online video service. One of the all-time pain points from customer side on their online video service is that there’s not much to watch, although service providers put much effort to increase their content volume. Viewers either search for the content they want to watch or rely on service provider recommendation but often end up finding nothing they want to view.

The aim of this workshop is to explore innovative alternatives to go beyond conventional UX. In other words, we hope to find UX ideas – other than search or recommendation – that offer a new style for customers to discover the content they want to view.

We would like to run this workshop in a casual and easy-to-participate style. participants need no prior submission or preparation. Anyone interested in this topic is free to join the workshop.


Half day (4 hours, 240 minutes)
