SECOND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION:
HCI RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM
7th November 2002 (deadline October 1st)
We are happy to invite researchers from academia and industry to contribute to the second Danish HCI research symposium. The aim of the symposium is to stimulate interactions between HCI researchers through a mix of oral presentations, discussions of posters, and keynote presentations. The focus on the symposium is on HCI research, e.g. usability work; novel interfaces; web design; affective computing; psychological models; computing in music, creative arts, design, and architecture; design of input devices; support of collaborative work; speech input; information navigation; mobile devices; learnware; visualization; home computing. However, reflections on and challenges of HCI work based on industrial experiences are highly welcomed as well.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
To participate in the symposium you will need to submit an extended abstract describing recent research or industrial experience with HCI work. Participants have to indicate whether they prefer to give an oral presentation of their work or to present a poster. Extended abstracts will be reviewed with the intention of having reviewers stimulate discussion after the presentation.
The format of the two-page abstract should follow ACM SIG proceedings template (www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). The abstract must be submitted no later than October 1st as a PDF-file without page numbers to HCISymposium@nik.ku.dk. The registration fee for the symposium is 500 DKR.
October 7th (extended from October 1st): Deadline for receiving extended abstracts.
October 15th: Notification of presentation form.
November 7th: Symposium in Copenhagen.
9:30-10:15 Registration, coffee/tea, putting up posters.
10:15-11:00 Staffan Björk, "The Play Studio - Experimental Design in Ubiquitous Computing", PLAY research studio, Interactive Institute, Sweden.
Staffan Björk is the research manager of the PLAY research studio: "The PLAY research studio investigates and invents the future of human-computer interaction. As computers become more and more a part of everyday life, the previous view of computers as strictly a work-oriented tool will change. We believe that in the future, computation will become just another material for design, and take a natural place in human existence alongside other basic technologies such as writing and electricity. The research in PLAY will prepare us for that future." http://www.playresearch.com/.
11:00-12:00 Oral presentations of papers
13:00-14:00 Lunch, small talk, posters
14:00-15:00 Superflex, "Superresearch".
Superflex are one of the most interesting and important artists' groups working today. There are three central members, Bjørnstjerne Christiansen, Jakob Fenger and Rasmus Nielsen, who are joined by various international collaborators on individual projects. Since 1995, they have worked on a series of discrete initiatives involving such issues as energy production in developing countries, internet television studios for specific neighbourhoods and communities and brand name copy production in South East Asia. Though very different, all these projects relate closely to questions of powerrelations, democracy and self-organisation. Superflex look at their works as tools. The tools are considered as invitations rather than representations; invitations that call for a participation and continuation. The tools represent models that are being used by different persons or groups they are not "alternatives" but are continuations and show real behaviour patterns. http://www.superflex.dk/
