HCI Ed 2006 - Limerick, Ireland
The deadline for papers for the HCIEd.2006-1 Workshop has been extended by 
one week to the 20th January 2006.  The purpose of the First BCS/IFIP/ICS 
HCI Educators' Workshop, or HCIEd.2006-1 inventivity is to discuss and 
explore methods and best practice for helping our students learn about and 
apply inventive thinking when designing systems, visualisations and 
interaction for human use.

The HCI Educators' Workshop Series is usually organised by the BCS HCI Group's 
Education and Practice Sub-Group. HCIEd.2006-1 inventivity will be the first 
workshop to be jointly organised by the British Computer Society HCI Group 
(BHCIG), the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP) 
TC13.1 Education, and the Irish Computer Society. We are also very pleased 
that HCIEd.10 will be hosted at the Interaction Design Centre, University of 
Limerick, Ireland.

Position papers are sought to discuss methods in which we encourage 
inventiveness in HCI design, a perspective that is theory-informed, 
reflective, critical and yet creative. Very importantly, we hope to share 
our understandings of how theories in the HCI curriculum can be taught to 
encourage inventive and innovative thinking among our students. Although 
usability evaluation is often in practice a post-design activity, it is also 
an important HCI tool that can give feedback into redesign. Therefore, also 
of interest to the workshop is can or should usability evaluation methods be 
used to inventively influence the design and creation of new products?

Paper topics can be based on case studies or reports of best practice 
showing the process by which inventiveness, innovative and creative designs 
have been encouraged amongst our students. We also encourage the submission 
of papers that reflectively describe methods or approaches we have been 
tried in this respect, but did not work.

Position paper length can range from 4 pages to a maximum of 6 pages in the 
prescribed format.
