A book will be published by Springer-Verlag with the contributions to  
HWID is also accepting short papers (of up to 2000 words) and long  
papers (up to
8000 words). Submissions should be sent to the Technical Program Chair,
Torkil Clemmensen ([log in to unmask]). A special issue of a

Making) will be
edited following the conference.

Happy new year!


The First IFIP TC 13.6 WG HWID 2006 (Human Work Interaction Design)
Designing for Human Work

- Madeira, Portugal, February 13-14, 2006

Sponsored by
IFIP, the International Federation for Information Processing and
FCT - Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology

Dave Woods, Cognitive Systems Engineering Laboratory, Ohio, USA
Annelise Mark Pejtersen, Risoe National Laboratory, Denmark

The aim of the HWID conference is to improve the participants’
skills and theoretical insights in synthesizing work analysis and
design sketching, with a particular focus on how to read design
sketches within different approaches. An example is how to move from
task analysis to operational concepts to 4D representation designs.

This working conference features an innovative, highly interactive  
in which researchers, designers and analysts will confront concrete  
problems taken from complex work domains and will have the unique
opportunity to share their own design problems and solutions to the  
A preliminary conference program can be found at 

Following the conference, participants will be invited to submit  
their papers
to an open call for a Special Issue in a journal such as the Journal  
of Cognitive
Engineering and Decision Making. (Conference proceedings will also be  
by Springer-Verlag).

Submitted papers would lead to points of discussions that depending  
on the
papers, may raise questions such as:
- specific designs that need context, e.g. the iPod;
- designers will design for their own persona, if you don’t give
them another;
- how to focus not only on functional requirements but also include  
the design
- how do we represent work place policies in the design, i.e.
include analysis of management, cross-organizational processes.
We will address how different approaches address both work analysis and
design ideas based on work analysis

To successfully practice Human Work Interaction Design requires a high
level of personal skill, which the conference aims at by confronting  
designers and work
analysts and those whose research is both analysis and design, who at  
conference will be asked to collaborate in small groups about  
analysis and solutions
to a common design problem.

Authors are encouraged to submit papers about design sketches - for  
interfaces, for
organizations of work etc - that they themselves have worked on. At
the conference, they will be asked to present the lessons they have
learnt from the design and evaluation process, citing reasons for why
the designs worked or why they did not work, and therefore present
their position.

To participate requires the submission of a paper that could contain  
the following parts:
- sketch(es) of interaction design based on an empirical analysis
of human life and work contexts;
- the analysis and sketching approaches and the ways to read
the sketches;
- theoretically based reflections on how to critically read the design
Due to these requirements the paper will be allowed to reach a maximum
of 8000 words.
Short papers (of up to 2000 words) are also invited.
Papers should be formatted according to Springer-Verlag’s LNCS
instructions for authors: 
authors.html and sent to
the Technical Program Chair, Torkil Clemmensen  
([log in to unmask]) by
January the 9nd 2006.

Important dates: (see top of message).

Registration fee is 490 euro, which includes
- Conference fee
- 5-star conference Hotel (single room) three nights with arrival  
Sunday 12th
and departure Wednesday 14th. A discount of 120 euro will be
given if you share the hotel room with another person (double room).
- 2 lunches and drinks

- Proceedings

For details about flights, extra nights etc. contact Ms. Cristina Sousa

Madeira's International Airport has many regular daily direct flights
to Lisbon and direct flights to London, Frankfurt, Hamburg and many
other major European cities. There are many charter flights available
all year round, especially from Nordic European countries, England and

HWID will take place in Funchal, Portugal, during 13-14 Feb. 2006.
Funchal is the capital of the Island of Madeira, Portugal.
Captain Cook, visiting Madeira in 1768, remarked that the island "was
the recipient of nature's most liberal gifts", a description which
might equally be applied to it today. A green, subtropical paradise
of volcanic origin, its soils are formed from lava and ash, and
blessed with an equable daytime temperature that varies only a few
degrees year round, Madeira is a year round delight. Funchal is the
only town of any size on the island. Its historic core overlooks a
deep natural harbor and boasts fine government buildings and stately
18th-century houses with shady courtyards and decorative iron
balconies. A wide variety of interesting excursions highlight these
beautiful colonial houses, the island's dramatic scenic contrasts and
colorful tropical gardens.
