Message from the Workshops Co-chairs

Workshops are a chance for members of a community with common interests to meet in the context of a focused and interactive discussion. Please consider attending a workshop, and take part in this opportunity to move a new field forward and build community. Please see the full list of offered Workshops below, and find more information on each listed Workshop’s website. Each workshop should generate ideas that will give the HCI community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic or that suggest promising directions for future research. Some workshops have resulted in edited books or special issues of journals; you may consider including this goal in the design of your workshop. Others have created communities that spawned new, more specialized conferences.

What is a CHI Workshop?

Workshops will be held on Saturday and Sunday May 7th and 8th, 2011. A workshop may be one or two days in length. Workshops are scheduled for six working hours per day, with a mid-morning break, a lunch break, and a mid-afternoon break. Workshops typically have 15 to 20 participants. Focused interaction among participants is important, so participants must have informed positions based on prior experience. And workshops should ideally foster discussion and exchange; they should not be miniature paper presentation sessions.

If you are interested in being a workshop participant, you must submit a position paper to the organizers of that workshop (contact names and addresses listed below, and on the workshops’ websites). Position papers are reviewed by the workshop organizers using their own criteria, and the organizers decide on the final list of participants. Workshops are only open to people who have had their position paper accepted by the workshop organizers. Participants must register for both the workshop and at least one day of the CHI conference itself.

Participating in a Workshop

CHI 2011 workshops are listed below. To participate in a workshop, please look at the webpage of the workshop to learn about submitting a position paper to the workshop.

All workshop participants must register for both the workshop (it is $175 for a one-day workshop and $250 for a two-day workshop) and for at least one day of the main conference (please view the current information about prices ). The reason for this policy is that workshops are supposed to be a part of the CHI conference, not separate events that happen to be in the same location at the same time. Only those who have had position papers accepted can attend workshops. If you are an accepted workshop participant, you will be provided with a registration code by your workshop organizers.

All workshops start at 9:00 am on the specified day(s), and will end by approximately 6:00 pm.
