We are pleased to announce an exciting and diverse programme of workshops to be held in conjunction with the 25th BCS conference on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI 2011). HCI 2011 will be held in Newcastle upon Tyne from the 4th to the 8th of July 2011, hosted by Northumbria University (see for more details).

Workshops will take place on Monday the 4th and Tuesday the 5th of July, the two days preceding the main conference. Workshop participants will be required to pay a £90 workshop fee; a reduced fee of £60 will be granted to those who also register for the conference.

The workshop programme for both days is given below. The general deadline for position papers is the 1st of May 2011, although please check individual workshop webpages for specific attendance criteria. Please note that in a couple of instances the webpages are not yet live, where this is the case we have included placeholder URLs for your information.

We look forward to an exciting series of events.
Siân Lindley and Peter Wild (HCI 2011 workshop co-chairs)
