Techniques are described for a mechanism to intelligently change layouts of a video conference or other collaborative meeting based on a variety of possible inputs (e.g., age of the shared screen, user preference, use of white boards, audience gaze, word matching, etc.). The mechanism resizes the shared screen for a collaborative meeting using an algorithm that estimates the current attention to the screen versus meeting participant intercommunications. The goal of the mechanism is to right-size the shared content so that it does not interfere with the live video conversation and to optimize the overall experience for meeting participants.
