Workshop website:

Human engagement is at the heart of every interactive technology. A 
concrete framework for synergizing the capabilities of humans and 
technologies to allow fully engaging interactions to happen is yet to be 
developed. We posit that such a framework should be grounded in a deeper 
understanding of human nature (e.g., mindbody relations), which in the 
field of HCI has primarily been built upon the Western philosophies. 
There are scattered, underexplored Eastern ideas (e.g., YiJing, Zen) or 
"mindfulness" that may provide new lens and tools to analyze how humans 
engage with technological artifacts.

This workshop aims to provide: (i) a learning venue where participants 
can together explore existing Eastern knowledge insights, and how they 
can be used to better understand human engagement and to draw 
implications for designing technologies, and (ii) a discussion venue to 
identify potentially new research and industrial opportunities open by 
these new perspectives.

We invite contributors to submit papers addressing one or more of four 
- theoretical (e.g. identifying promising Eastern frameworks)
- practical (e.g., analyzing methodologies of existing work)
- reflective (e.g. critique on the notion of human engagement) and
- programmatic (e.g., developing a research agenda).

Submissions should be of 2-6 pages ACM SIGCHI format. All submissions 
will be reviewed by the organizers of its relevance to the proposed 
theme. The paper in PDF file format should be sent via email to**Effie 
Law**<[log in to unmask]>. Contributors will be asked to bring along an 
A1-poster to facilitate
