Dear Colleagues,

We're co-chairing the tutorials program for CHI'98, and we'd like to
share some ideas about tutorial topics with you.

We have compiled a list of topics for which we're especially
interested in receiving tutorial proposals.  The list is based on
responses to the question "If you could take a CHI'98 tutorial on any
topic, what would it be?" which was asked on the tutorial feedback
survey at CHI'97.

We are interested in proposals on other CHI-related topics, as well.
Please do not limit yourself to this list.  That bears repeating:
PLEASE DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF TO THIS LIST !!  We are interested in new
tutorials and presenters.

Please see the end of this message for information about where to
obtain the CHI'98 Call for Participation and how to reach us.


PROPOSALS FOR TUTORIALS ARE DUE JULY 25, 1997.

Topics we'd especially like to see proposals for include:

World-Wide Web applications and transactions
--------------------------------------------
Introductory-, intermediate-, and advanced-level design courses for
people who already know how to create Web pages and are familiar with
HTML, to teach them how to design effective Web applications and
transactions.

World-Wide Web design
---------------------
An advanced-level design course for people who already know how to
create Web pages and are familiar with HTML, to teach them how to
design effective Web documents and Web sites.

World-Wide Web usability
------------------------
An advanced-level course for people familiar with usability testing
that focuses on issues and techiniques that can be used to evaluate
Web sites.

Java
----
An advanced-level course for people with some programming experience,
teaching them about how to develop effective Web-based applications
and user interfaces.

Virtual Environments
--------------------------
Introductory- and intermediate- and advanced-level tutorials that
enable participant exposure to, and involvement in, creating virtual
environments. Of particular interest are design and implementation
issues. Issues related to wearable computing are also desired.

Information Visualization
-------------------------------
Introductory- and intermediate-level courses that present topics
ranging from simple, static visualization to highly interactive,
animated visualization. Of interest are computer graphics and imaging
as well as the perceptual basis of information visualization.

Cognitive Psychology
---------------------------
Introductory- and intermediate- and advanced-level tutorials that
teach how basic principles of cognitive psychology apply to the design
of user interfaces.

Graphic and visual design
-------------------------------
An intermediate-level course, for people with some background in HCI,
about graphic/visual design for UIs.

Dynamics of color
-----------------------
An intermediate-level course for people with some background in HCI,
about the interaction, potential impact, and behavior of color, and
how to use color effectively in user interfaces.

CSCW and groupware
---------------------------
An intermediate-level course, for people with some background in HCI,
that surveys the field of computer-supported cooperative work,
including current developments.  Also, an advanced-level course that
treats one or more CSCW topics in greater depth, for people who have
already had a survey of CSCW.

Agents and adaptive UIs
-----------------------------
An intermediate-level tutorial, for people with a background in
designing traditional UIs, to teach them the state of the art in
interface agents.  There is also interest in an advanced-level
tutorial that focuses on the details of creating effective agents.

Multimedia
----------
An intermediate-level tutorial for people with experience designing
non-multimedia interfaces.  Topics might include how to add multimedia
to existing systems, how to prototype multimedia software, how to
manage multimedia data, and how to evaluate the usability of
multimedia interfaces, all of which were requested by respondents.

Usability testing
-----------------
An intermediate-level tutorial for people familiar with UI design, to
teach them how to plan, conduct, and interpret usability tests.

Introducing UI into organizations
--------------
An intermediate-level tutorial for people with experience in UI design
and/or management, to teach them strategies for convincing management
and clients/customers of the value of HCI work, especially usability.
Tips for overcoming organizational resistance to usability testing,
and how to convey the results of usability tests to engineers and
programmers.

Object-oriented UI design
-------------------------
An intermediate-level tutorial for people familiar with non-OO
interface design, to teach them how to do object-oriented design and
how it applies to user interface design.

Technology trends
------------------
An intermediate-level tutorial for people familiar with UI design, to
inform them of recent technology trends and how they will affect UI
design. Technology trends might include speech and handwriting
recognition, agents, VRML and extensions, shared user interfaces,
multimodal user interfaces, or wearable computing.

Game Design
----------------
An intermediate-level tutorial that focuses on digital storytelling
and computer game design.

Drawing
----------
A hands-on course related to the ability to learn to draw is desired,
emphasizing the perceptual skills required for realistic drawing.

Educational Applications Development
------------------------------------------------
Tutorials that focus on children as consumers of emerging
technologies. Of particular interest are how emerging technologies
enable learning, cultural exchanges, team building, and collaboration.
