INTERACT Workshops provide a one-day or two-day forum for participants to compare their experiences and explore research issues or topics of special interest to the HCI community.
Interested participants can register for the accepted Workshop proposals.
Workshops should have specific objectives and address stimulating topics. See for example workshops in INTERACT 2013 and INTERACT 2015. Workshop organisers will get an opportunity to present a summary of outcomes in a session during the conference.
The proposed format of the workshop should be innovative and interesting. Following are some examples of what may happen in workshops:
- A traditional workshop with paper presentations, followed by forum discussions and a shared poster for presentation during the conference (please innovate this)
- An interactive event, where participants work together on experimenting with or evaluating an artifact, and make a 360 degree video of the design or evaluation work highlights for presentation during the conference
- A design workshop with focus on artefacts, with a gallery / showroom exhibition during the conference
- Other, innovative formats of the workshop will also be of interest. Workshops should have a limited number of participants (up to 30). Workshops will take place on 25 and 26 September 2017, immediately preceding the main conference.
Please submit your proposal by January 31, 2017 23:59 PT using the conference submission system (PCS) as one PDF document, with two separate sections:
- Workshop Abstract (Two pages in the Springer LNCS Format): This will be used for reviewing, for the programme and be published in the official conference proceedings. It should cover the overall concept of the workshop including key organisers, objectives, theme/topic, target audience, and expected outcomes.
- Workshop Proposal (One page in any format): This will be internal for the reviewing process. It should cover the workshop organisation and duration (i.e., how do the organisers facilitate the workshop).
Workshop proposals are NOT anonymous, and will be reviewed by experts in the corresponding areas. The abstract of each accepted workshop will be published in the conference proceedings by Springer.
Each accepted workshop will have their own call for participation. A tentative schedule is mentioned below.
- May 3, 2017: Deadline for workshop position papers
- May 24, 2017: Reviews of workshop submissions due
- June 7, 2017: Notifications to workshop participants of acceptance into workshops, if any
- June 21, 2017 (Hard deadline): Camera-ready workshop position papers
The position papers of the individual workshop participants will be published in official adjunct conference proceedings during the conference.
