*****************CALL FOR PARTICIPATION*****************

CHI 2008 Workshop: Collocated Social Practices Surrounding Photos

5th April, 2008, Florence, Italy

Submission deadline: 3rd October, 2007


Recent interest in how people interact with printed and digital photos has begun to reveal the social nature of these practices and the potential implications of this for designing supportive technologies. This workshop aims to draw together (but is not limited to) the themes of photowork, photo sharing and photo displays, allowing an exploration of current research into the social basis of these activities. The workshop will enable researchers and practitioners to:

- Share findings, insights and experiences to develop a sense of key issues in the area

- Discuss how these findings might inform technology innovation and inspire design

- Explore the methodological issues of understanding social practices in photo use

- Foster new collaborations amongst researchers with similar interests

We hope to further disseminate the outcomes of this workshop by collecting contributions for a special issue of a journal.

To participate please submit a 3 page (max) position paper outlining your research experiences, findings or interests relevant to collocated social practices surrounding photo use. Participants will be selected with a view to providing a broad spectrum of interest across the themes.

This will be a one-day workshop. On the day, participants will present their position papers (10 mins) in the morning, followed by an afternoon of discussion of the key issues raised. Papers should conform to the HCI Archive format ( To participate, one author is required to register for both the workshop and one day of CHI 2008.

Position Papers due October 3rd 2007 17:00 PDT.
Notification of acceptance by November 28th 2007.

Papers can be submitted by email to Sian Lindley at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
