We are happy to be able to extend the deadline for the final call for
papers of the workshop:

Knowledge-based interactive environments
-In conjunction with NordiCHI2012-

Time: October 14th, 2012
Place: Copenhagen, Denmark

Knowledge management has been recognized as a challenging, and sometimes
deeply problematic term, which however still keeps attracting much
attention in large areas of information systems and management science

It has, however, being going largely under the radar of the HCI
community, except perhaps in sporadic references to expert systems. The
field is much broader, however, and we believe that is a systematic
re-examination of it from a fresh angle.

Our target for this workshop is to drill deeper into how knowledge may
be approached as a basis for building better IT, and we welcome equally
contribution that describe:
-Bringing empirical work and theoretical frameworks to bear on design in
a transparent and novel way, distinguishing such systems from “ordinary
design”, and
-Information and knowledge sharing, which is somehow mediated by
technology. This could be documents, procedures, and expressions of art
or technology itself.

The notion of knowledge management has been tremendously little
effective. Apart from having inspired a large number of academic
publications, we have not been seeing much in terms of recognizably
different IT systems being implement. Most industrial users still store
information as documents in folders or records in databases. Even if
most of this information is now easily accessible from a web-based user
interface, it is hardly being offered in a fashion that makes it more
timely or accumulative than in traditional information systems. This is
where HCI may contribute to advance the area, through its combination of
a technological and critical tradition and broad social platform.

The workshop is intended to bring together scholars with HCI background
and an interest in organizational development, management science and
user studies, systems and appliances design, and evaluation effects of
technology on individuals as well as society at large. The aim is to see
how technology may be involved in exploring, enhancing or even
exploiting the idea of knowledge, and hence to revitalize the thematic
research in this direction without going through another round of
definitions or modelling of assumptions surrounding knowledge creation
and management.

The title of the workshop clearly also indicates that the role of
knowledge even in our own profession should not be exempt of such an

The main outcome of the workshop will be to draw and renew interest from
the Nordic HCI community, into a an information systems and
technologically enabled field that is still widely researched in other
disciplines, but unfortunately not here.

We invite the delegates to contribute with ideas, arguments, and
examples, which the workshop may be able to help accelerate through
interaction with peers at the conference.

More concretely, we think that the workshop may result in
-The decision to create a repository of contributions and annotated
bibliography, which will be maintained and extended after the workshop
-Plan for an invited PhD seminar organized among the participating
-Statements, papers, and demos from this workshop being developed
further in order to beaccepted and published at a dedicated conference
track in 2013
-Formulation of a longer-term dissemination plan, e.g., resulting in a
special issue of a suitable journal or an edited book coming out.

The audience is intended to be researchers and practitioners with
experience or interest in systematically supporting innovation, change
management or process management, as well as co-operative knowledge
management, decision theory, planning and co-ordination, etc., and who
have taken an interest in the notion of “knowledge management”, albeit
without finding it particularly satisfying the way that it is being used

Steinar Kristoffersen (PhD) is a Professor of Information Technology at
Østfold University College, where he has been teaching Interaction
Design and Mobile IT since 2007. He is also a researcher at
Møreforskning AS Molde, where he works with applied science in logistics
and IT. He has previously been a consultant and entrepreneur, and spent
time at the University of Oslo as well as Gothenburg.

Nada Matta, Professor at the University of Technology of Troyes. She
studies techniques in knowledge engineering and management and
especially to handle cooperative activities. She did her PhD in
knowledge engineering and Artificial Intelligence at Univesrity of Paul
Sabatier in collaboration with ARTEMIS. Prof. Matta worked for four
years at INRIA in projects with Dassault-Aviation and Airbus Industry.
Currently, Prof. Matta a director of The Safety, Security and Control of
Complex Systems Group ( and the UTTDepartment
of Human, Environment and ICT.

Hilda Tellioglu is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Design and
Assessment of Technology at the Faculty of Informatics at the Vienna
University of Technology. She has been involved with both research and
teaching on: software engineering, knowledge management, coordination
support, design and development of information technology, CSCW in
systems design, in health care work, and in architectural planning,
gender issues in computer science.

Workshop candidates are requested to submit a position paper, which must
be formatted according to ACM SIGCHI Publications
Format and should not exceed 4 pages) about research or work they have
been involved with (related to the topics described above) via email to

Papers will be reviewed by the organizers. At least one author of
accepted papers needs to register for the workshop and for the
conference itself. All accepted papers may be made available on the
website, depending on the authors’ acceptance and wishes. The aim,
however, is to initiate a publication cycle.

August 30th, 2012 - Submission of Position Papers
September 5th, 2012 - Notification of Acceptance
September 10th, 2012 - Camera Ready Paper Version
October 14th, 2012 - One-Day Workshop at NordiCHI 2012
