CHI 2008 Workshop - Affect in HCI: Going Beyond the Individual 

 

April 5, 2008

Florence, Italy

---------------------------------------------------------------

 

WORKSHOP WEBSITE: http://www.emotion-in-hci.net/chi08/ 

 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 1 November 2007, 5PM (PDT)

 

 

The measurement of affect in HCI research is a challenging and complex
issue. Although a number of techniques for measuring affect have been
developed, a systematic discussion of their effectiveness and applicability
in different contexts remains lacking, especially in social contexts with
multiple users. As computing shifts to increasingly collaborative and
ubiquitous models, it is important to discuss affect measurement beyond the
individual level.  This workshop will provide a forum where designers,
practitioners, and researchers can 1) introduce novel methods of affect
measurement that go beyond physiological and self-report measures, 2)
advance our understanding of existing measurement methods and how they can
be expanded, and 3) critically evaluate issues of affect measurement. 

 

We welcome submissions that address our workshop theme.  Areas of interest
include, but are not limited to:

 

Yours, mine or ours 

- Is "group affect" merely a summary of individual group member affect or do
we need measurement methods beyond the individual? How is affect transferred
from one group member to another through emotional contagion, behavioral
entrainment and interaction synchrony? How do we measure such transfer
processes? 

 

Implicit measures 

- A method that overcomes many of the criticisms of self-report and
physiological measures of affect measurement are implicit measures such as
analysis of linguistic cues.  What other implicit measures can the HCI
community utilize? 

 

Objective and subjective measures 

- In what contexts are objective measures of emotion and more subjective
measures of emotion useful? Can there be a common ground between the two? A
structured conversation between researchers using these different measures
holds great promise for the community. 

 

Mild emotions, mixed emotions and single emotions 

- Majority of measurement techniques focus on single emotions or an umbrella
of emotions generally referred to as positive or negative affect.  Is there
measurement techniques that can measure subtle (low intensity) emotions or
different emotions experienced simultaneously? 

 

Cross cultural applicability 

- What are the cross-cultural issues associated with affect measurement?
Are there measurement techniques that can be reasonably applied across
cultures?
