CFP ETHICS, LOGS and VIDEOTAPE: Ethics in Large Scale Trials & User
Generated Content
CHI 2011 Workshop
May 7th 2011, Vancouver (Submission Deadline: January 14th 2011)

We invite position papers for the CHI 2011 Workshop "ETHICS, LOGS and
VIDEOTAPE: Ethics in Large Scale Trials & User Generated Content."

This one-day workshop will offer a forum for discussion of the ethical
considerations involved when conducting HCI research on a large scale.
This might involve the use of applications distributed to the public
through routes such as 'app stores', collection and analysis of log
data and how this compares to the study of user generated content such
as YouTube video.

The workshop will facilitate discussions aiming towards the
development of an initial set of guidelines for researchers working in
these areas and will include brief individual presentations, breakout
group discussions, and full group discussion of results.

Researchers from both industry and academia with an interest in the
ethics  of running HCI user trials, analysis of log data or analysis
of user generated & published content are invited to submit a position
paper of not more than 4 pages in the CHI extended abstract format
( by January 14th.

Sample topics include:
       Discussion on the ethical challenges of large scale,
ubiquitous technology trials
       Experiences with the ethical challenges of running human
trials including:
           working with Ethic Review Boards
          backlashes from users or the media
           gaining informed consent in apps
       Collecting data from large scale research: what (not) to log,
record and use
       The application of ethical guidelines from other disciplines
where do clinical, psychological or Internet survey guidelines fall
       Cultural or institutional differences in the responsibilities
of researchers involved in human trials.
       The repurposing of user generated data (published such as
blogs, social networking or shared video) for research.

Please see the extended abstract for more information

Participants will be selected on the basis of the originality of their
position paper, and contribution to the workshop goals. At least one
author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop and for
one day of the conference itself.
