A novel conceptual model for accessing distributed data and applications, as well as devices

Lucia Terrenghi and Thomas Lang


As data and services are increasingly distributed in the network, rather than stored in a fixed location, one can imagine a scenario in which the Personal Computer, intended as a static workstation, is really disappearing. In such a scenario, users' interactions are going to be mediated by ad-hoc connected devices, whose specific functionalities enable people to interact with data and services in different ways. If this vision holds true, a personal mobile device can potentially serve the function of portable access point to data, services and devices. This implies that a novel conceptual model for interaction needs to be designed, as well as its user interface. This position paper aims at raising a discussion around this topic.
