Description Large-sized display walls and tabletops stand for state of the art visualization platforms providing a great opportunity for group collaborative tasks. The integration of multi-touch overlays enables multiple users to interact concurrently with the system. However, continuous user tracking and association of input events with users, which could considerably improve user experience, is still a largely unexplored topic. In this paper, we present a concept of the distributed user-aware interface and a prototype of the modular framework that implements the concept using commodity sensor devices. Although our target platforms are display walls and tabletops, it can be utilized for other collaborative systems.
