Mediation and Meaning in HCI

Workshop at  Interact 2015

This workshop is about computer mediation in human communication and action. The proponents all look at mediation from different angles, but share the view that meaning is what mediation is about. We aim to dig beneath the surface and touch on the conception, construction, negotiation and evolution of meaning in and of technology, for producers and consumers, before and after technology is deployed. Mediation and meaning will thus allow us to discuss how different segments and perspectives in HCI research can be brought together to give us new insights about how people interact with technology.

We call for position paper submissions that address mediated meaning in use and design of computer technology, focusing on HCI theory (or theoretical approaches), methods or practical aspects (like empirical cases and examples in design or evaluation).

The contributions will be reviewed by the organizers and serve as foundation of the workshop.

Workshop position papers are published in the official adjunct proceedings to appear at the University of Bamberg Press, including ISBN and distributed on-and offline. Workshop position papers should have a length between 4 to 6 pages. The University of Bamberg Press format is available at
