CHI 2004 - User profiling workshop
Call for participation
Some global trends have a large influence on the way we use technology,
* increasing connectivity and connected devices
* increasing data storage capacity, both local and network
* smart objects (ambient intelligence, intelligent multi-modal user
* heterogeneous environments
To transform these trends into benefits for end users, products and
services need to make efficient use of user profiles. A possible concern
for end users is the large number and wide variety of different profiles
to deal with. In this workshop we will discuss the width and depth of
this topic and will try to
* get more grasp on "the big picture"
* come to conclusions & recommendations in the form of how to proceed
within and beyond the field of HCI.
Participants should have experience in designing or research into
profile-based human-computer interfaces.
Participants are asked to write position papers in which they present
their opinion related to:
* environments for profiling, like "At home", "At work" and "In public"
* the content, life cycle and definition of user profiles Position
papers should include opinions on:
1. When do profiles have an added value?
2. What should a profile contain, how much intelligence should it
3. Implementation issues: multiple profiles, ownership, security etc.
4. What is the relationship between profiling and HCI?
Examples of profiles and/or (future) scenarios in which profiles play a
crucial role across environments are appreciated.
Position papers can be sent to: [log in to unmask]
