  *Call for Participation: CHI 2009 Workshop*

    *Age matters: Bridging the generation gap through
    technology-mediated interaction *

Internet-based, mobile and pervasive technologies provide the means for 
older people to establish and maintain intergenerational relationships 
over long distances. The significance of this intergenerational context 
has been largely ignored when considering potential interactions and the 
design of such technologies. This workshop aims to explore the important 
issues when considering intergenerational contact as a significant 
context for design. The emphasis of
the workshop will be on engaging user voices in a participatory manner 
and undertaking interactive design sessions to explore the design space. 
The overarching objective of this workshop is to identify key research 
themes in respect of intergenerational communication and its 
implications for the design of interactive systems.

The workshop will take place as part of CHI 2009, Boston, April, 2009 - see

We encourage participation from researchers in HCI, psychologists, 
designers, developers and any others with an interest in this area.

Potential participants should submit a position paper of 2-4 pages to 
the organizers
([log in to unmask])which describes their research interests and 
relevant work in
the area. They must be prepared in the CHI Conference Extended Abstracts 
Format <>. At least
one author of each accepted position paper needs to register for the 
workshop and for one
or more days of the conference. Accepted participants will be expected 
to create a poster
based on their position paper(instructions to follow). The outcome of 
the workshop will be
a call to submit full papers for a special issue of a journal.
