  Call for participation: Interaction Design and Emotional Wellbeing

  A one-day workshop at CHI 2012 in Austin Texas.

Workshop website:

Emotional wellbeing is fundamental to our quality of life. It enables us 
to experience life as meaningful and is an essential component of social 
cohesion and stability in the living environment.This one-day workshop 
at CHI 2012 will bring together a diverse community of researchers, to 
share expertise and consolidate existing knowledge on interaction design 
and emotional wellbeing. It will provide a forum to define new 
opportunities and explore diverse theoretical frameworks, thus helping 
to set an agenda for future research in this area. Alongside a specific 
consideration of technology in mental health settings, we will explore 
the role of emotional support in health and wellbeing more generally, 
and will consider the requirements of technologies that can provide 
emotional support across the lifespan. The potential of social and 
sensor networks and possibilities for extending traditional care 
networks will be important themes of this workshop.

We invite you to submit a 2-4 page paper that reports current work, 
describes future intentions and/or offers new insights, theoretical 
perspectives or provocative opinions on technology and emotional wellbeing.

*Format:*2-4 pages, in the ACM extended abstract format.
