Deadline extension and call for participation for:
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.

Finding suitable theoretical or conceptual frameworks (and methods onsistent
with that framework) with which to address research problems is a very
complex and difficult issue. 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 position papers (maximum 3 pages) from 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.


DATES AND DEADLINES
Position paper deadline:  30th June 2005
Notification of acceptance: 1st July 2005.

Please email your submission to Jan Gulliksen and Inger Boivie
