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.
At least one author for each accepted submission must register for the conference by July 1, 2017 for the submission to be included in the proceedings.
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. The revised deadlines for participants' workshop position papers is shown here (but please contact individual workshop organisers for details):
- June 11, 2017: Reviews of workshop submissions begin
- June 25, 2017: Reviews of workshop submissions due
- June 29, 2017: Notifications to workshop participants of acceptance into workshops. (This is to help participants catch the early registration deadline of of July 1 for INTERACT, though you may receive a second round of notification till July 16)
- July 31, 2017 (Hard deadline): Camera-ready workshop position papers and extended abstracts for proceedings.
The position papers of the individual workshop participants will be published in official adjunct conference proceedings during the conference.
