CHI 2004 Workshops on Technologies for Connecting Elders and Enhancing Home Healthcare - Sunday, April 25 and Monday, April 26, 2004, Vienna, Austria

CHI 2004 is sponsoring two independently organized workshops in the area of home-based and pervasive healthcare and novel technologies for supporting elders at home. Applicants may submit position papers to one or both workshops. Please contact the respective workshop organizers for questions.

==================
HCI and Homecare: Connecting Families and Clinicians
Sunday, April 25, 2004
Organizers: Lena  Mamykina, Siemens Corporate Research, Inc., USA, Jakob E. Bardram, University of Aarhus, Denmark, Ilkka Korhonen, VTT Information Technology, Finland, Elizabeth Mynatt, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, Wanda Pratt, The Information School and Biomedical & Health Informatics, University of Washington, USA
Web-site: http://www.scr.siemens.com/CHI2004_Workshop/index.html
 
The proposed workshop aims to form a community of individuals interested in using computing technology to promote healthcare and support wellness in the context of homecare. We strive to connect and engage in conversation researchers from several distinct fields of scientific inquiry and practice: people with clinical experience, developers of enabling technologies and HCI researchers interested in home technologies and such issues as aging in place. The focus of this one-day workshop is on identifying consistencies, or lack thereof in vocabulary, research methods and understanding of needs and current issues related to homecare, focusing on shared needs of individuals with homecare needs, their families and clinicians, and developing a theoretical framework for future research. 
 
WORKSHOP GOALS
The goals of this workshop are to establish a shared ground for and initiate progress towards building a common understanding and continuous collaboration between researchers in the area of homecare. In particular we aim to:
  Facilitate communication and knowledge exchange between various fields of scientific inquiry, including clinical research, HCI, social studies, etc.

  Discuss and analyze various research methodologies, including vocabulary, theoretical frameworks and design and evaluation methods

  Identify and discuss venues for publications to grow further awareness of this emerging area

  Explore opportunities for collaboration and joint research projects

We welcome participants from healthcare, industry, academia, and government. We encourage people who are practitioners in the field of homecare, investigate various aspects of HCI and pervasive computing within a home environment, representatives of industrial corporations engaged in the development of software and enabling technologies for homecare, and individuals from government bodies who enact policies regarding reimbursement that affect homecare. Individuals interested in participating in this one-day workshop should e-mail a 2-3 page position paper to [log in to unmask]  by Jan. 23, 2004 (please note the extended deadline). The position paper should contain:

  Your name, affiliation, and contact information 

  Short bio with description of research or design experience relevant to workshop 

  Description of research interests related to healthcare, and in particular to home-based and pervasive healthcare and aging in place

Please note in your submission if you are applying for both workshops. Participants will be selected based on their workshop position paper and the relevance of their background. The organizers will distribute position papers to attendees prior to the workshop and then summarize them as a post-workshop publication. 

Participant submission deadline:  January 23, 2004
Notice of participant acceptance:  February 23, 2004

Home Technologies to Keep Elders Connected
Monday, April 26, 2004
Organizers: Jay Lundell, Margaret Morris, Intel Corporation; Stephen Intille, MIT
 
The focus of this workshop is on innovative solutions to elder care, particularly as they pertain to maintaining and facilitating non-medical connections in the elder population - staying connected with friends and family, staying connected with past, present, and future, staying connected with elders' identifying pastimes, and staying connected with the status of their day-to-day functioning. 
 
The goals of the workshop are to identify broad areas where connecting elders is of concern, and to identify areas of research and collaboration between participants and research communities. The outcome of the workshop will be to increase the focus on research in promoting quality of life in elders via technological innovation, to jointly publish research in this area, and more specifically, to publish the results of the workshop in the SIGCHI bulletin and other targeted publications. A special issue dedicated to elder care is a possibility, depending on the completeness of work and interest level of the participants.

Individuals interested in participating in this one-day workshop should e-mail a 2-3 page position paper to [log in to unmask] by Jan. 23, 2004 (please note extended deadline). The position paper should contain:

  Your name, affiliation, and contact information 

  Short bio with description of research or design experience relevant to workshop 

  Description of research in elder care and/or connecting elders.

Please note in your submission if you are applying for both workshops. Participants will be selected based on their workshop position paper and the relevance of their background. Special emphasis will be placed on attracting participants with diverse perspectives from the health research community, the ubiquitous computing community, and from different cultures and geographies. The organizers will distribute position papers to attendees prior to the workshop and then summarize them as a post-workshop publication. 

Participant submission deadline:  January 23, 2004
