                           CALL FOR PAPERS

ACM CHIMIT '07: 1st ACM Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction for
                Management of Information Technology

               March 30-31, 2007 - Cambridge, MA, USA

Over the years, IT systems have become increasingly complex such that
management is now a serious bottleneck to personal and organizational
productivity. IT service delivery costs are now dominated by operating
expenses, and end-user productivity suffers as a consequence. Simply
put, we are at a turning point in IT: Further advances in technology,
business efficiency, and growth require fundamentally new approaches
to system design and management. Solutions will require a broad
understanding of technology, people, organizations, and business. This
symposium aims to bring together stakeholders, researchers,
practitioners, and designers from diverse fields such as
human-computer interaction, human factors, computer science,
management science, social sciences, and service sciences, to identify
issues, put forward a research agenda, and propose solutions.

Originals contributions are sought broadly on workplace studies,
processes and practices, organizational knowledge, models and metrics,
design, experimental studies, tools, and automation approaches for IT
management. More specifically topics of interest include but are not
limited to:

* Workspace Studies
  - Ethnographic studies of IT work in context
  - Patterns of work for various IT processes
  - Requirements for the design of new technologies
  - Issues related to new technology adoption
  - Role and forms of organization for effective work

* Processes and Practices
  - Development and use of processes in IT
  - Best practices in problem solving strategies
  - Impact of business decisions on IT
  - Standards and guidelines of IT management
  - Experiences in policy development and use

* Organizational Knowledge
  - Case studies and techniques for expertise-finding
  - Approaches to supporting communities of practice
  - Relationship computing and role management
  - Studies of collaboration and coordination
  - Knowledge management and training in IT

* Models and Metrics
  - Models and metrics of key performance indicators
  - Quality analysis of models and metrics
  - Techniques for dynamic data collection
  - Development of early problem indicators

* Design
  - Design of human-centered IT systems
  - Architectural considerations for user experience
  - Design methodologies for complexity and risk

* Experimental Studies
  - Models of interaction with complex IT systems
  - Language  in human-machine interaction
  - Evaluations of system management interfaces
  - Experiments on human error and attention
  - Cognitive issues in complex display design
  - Studies of decision-making for complex problems

* Tools and Techniques
  - Interaction techniques for system management
  - Collaborative system administration workspaces
  - Visualizations of complex system behavior
  - Management tools for personal computing
  - Script and tool development environments

* Automation
  - Automation/Policy languages
  - Human interfaces to automation
  - Policy-based interaction and control
  - Trust management in automation
  - Human-automation work division and redundancy
  - Agent-based automation and control
