CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: LOST-OR LIBERATED?-WITHOUT THEORY

A full day workshop at British HCI 2005,
Napier University, Edinburgh, 6 September 2005

http://www.it.uu.se/research/hci/HCI2005-WS

What is your conceptual framework, your theory or method? Why is your work
valid? This workshop addresses these questions and related problems facing
all researchers within HCI, and their solutions.

Many PhD students, whose work is most sensitive to these questions, start
out with a fairly well-defined research problem, often provided by the
project funding the research. Finding a suitable theoretical or conceptual
framework (and methods consistent with that framework) with which to address
the research problem is, however, a very complex and difficult issue.
Indeed, the relations between different theories, and between theory and
application within HCI has long been a source of frustration, debate and
problems.

This workshop will discuss issues related to theory and the application of
theory within HCI research. The workshop will make authoritative and
positive recommendations to the community. The workshop particularly
addresses the difficulties facing PhD students as well as researchers trying
to navigate in a multi-disciplinary and multi-theoretical research area.

SUBMISSIONS
We welcome both seasoned HCI researchers and younger participants, such as
current PhD students in the midst of interdisciplinary crisis. We
particularly encourage PhD students and their supervisor/tutor to send in
joint applications.

Applicants should write a position paper (maximum of 3 pages) covering their
position regarding the issues discussed above and questions they
particularly wish to highlight during the workshop. For more details about
the issues we hope to address in the workshop and the position papers,
please follow the URL above. The position papers will be circulated in
advance.

DATES AND DEADLINES
Position paper deadline:  15th June 2005
Notification of acceptance: 1st July 2005.
Please email your submission to Jan Gulliksen and Inger Boivie at the
addresses below.
