ACM CHI 2010 Workshop
Designing and Evaluating Affective Aspects of Sociable Media to  
Support Social Connectedness

April 11, 2010, Atlanta, GA, USA

Submission deadline: January 6, 2010


Social connectedness is described as the momentary experience of  
belonging and relatedness with others and is often considered one of  
the goals of social media technologies. We seek participants from  
various domains for an interdisciplinary workshop on designing and  
evaluating affective aspects of sociable media to support social  
connectedness. Position papers are invited on the following topics:

(1) understanding and measuring social connectedness (including  
qualitative and quantitative approaches)
(2) types of content mediated by sociable media to foster users’  
social connectedness (including issues of privacy management)
(3) design experiences and interaction affordances of connectedness  
(4) case studies that involve the design of awareness systems for  
social connectedness, or studies where social connectedness is used as  
a medium to support other goal

The goal of this workshop is connecting researchers from social  
science and design disciplines to foster future collaboration and  
resource exchange. Through our discussion, we hope to crystallize a  
concrete research agenda for investigating social connectedness  
systems. A concrete outcome of the workshop will be a proposal for a  
special issue of a journal on the topic of designing and evaluating  
social connectedness systems that the organizers will submit to  
appropriate venues. Interested parties are invited to submit a  
position paper of 2-4 pages, in the CHI Extended Abstracts format, to [log in to unmask]
