CALL FOR PAPERS: Workshop on Human Computer Interaction in Third Places.
Paris, France. April 27-28th.



*Submission Deadline: December 28th.
*Acceptance Notification: February 1st.
Camera-ready Deadline: February 15th.
CHI-3P Workshop: April 27th - April 28th.


“Third places” are neither work or home; rather, they are places such as
coffee shops and bars, where playful conversation shapes the social links
that tie communities together. Emerging information and communication
technologies (ICT) have introduced new ways to interact with such third
places – i.e. geo-tagging, crowd-sourcing and passive sensing – changing
how we interact with other people, and how contemporary communities are

The goal of the first Workshop on Human Computer Interaction in Third
Places (HCI-3P) ( is to better
understand, through academic discussion and a field activity, the best
approaches to designing ICT for third places. The outcomes of the workshop
will be a research agenda, collaborative research proposals and the
initiation of a recurring workshop on the topic.

HCI-3P is scheduled as a two day workshop co-located with CHI2013. The
first day will be dedicated to discussing the state of current research,
while the second day will promote research collaboration through a field
activity taking place on several Parisian third places.

Submissions should describe ongoing research on novel interfaces, research
methodologies, or research positions on human computer interaction for
third places. If accepted, at least one author of the paper will need to
attend the workshop. Attendees must register for the CHI-3P workshop and at
least one (1) day of the conference. Submissions should be done following
the CHI Extended Abstract Format (

HCI-3P by December 28th.

(Please note at least one author of each accepted paper must register for
the workshop and one or more days of the conference.)


HCI-3P will focus on the following topics, but similar topics and
discussions will be welcomed for submission and discussion during the

+ Novel interfaces to support human interaction in third places
+ Natural and unobtrusive interfaces to support conversation within third
+ Aesthetic approaches to public interfaces within third places
+ Crowd-computing in third places
+ Comparison of third places with different cultural rootings
+ Supporting third places in special communities (e.g. nomad, non-technical)
+ Virtual or hybrid (virtual/face-to-face) third places
+ Computing for third places in the developing world
