Technology for Today's Family

CHI2012 Workshop
May 5th or 6th 2012
Austin, Texas, USA

Important Dates
Jan 06, 2012: Workshop submission deadline
Feb 03, 2012: Feedback to authors
We invite you to participate in a workshop for researchers and practitioners interested in designing and developing technologies for families. We believe families are a unique user group that should be addressed in a holistic manner. To this end, we will conduct a one-day workshop for researchers to come together to build a community, share experiences and perspectives, and discuss the future of technologies for families.

Submissions should be written in the CHI Archive format and should be 2-4 pages long. Papers should include: a statement of interest, a summary of authors' expertise in the area of family technology design, and statement of the unique perspective the author(s) will bring to the discussion. Papers will be selected based on quality and diversity of perspectives.

Possible paper topics include, but are not limited to:
New theoretical perspectives on technology use in families
New techniques in designing for or with families
New technological or design approaches
An overview or survey, of existing technologies for families
An overview or survey, of design methods for creating technologies for families
Opinions on or experiences with the challenges of designing technologies for families
Papers should be e-mailed to [log in to unmask] no later than January 6, 2012. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection to the workshop by February 3, 2012. At least one author from each accepted paper must attend the workshop.
