2nd Call For Papers



'I've Had It!': Group therapy for interdisciplinary researchers

18th August 2015, Aarhus, Denmark
in Conjunction with the Fifth Decennial Aarhus Conference

Deadline for submissions: 15 May 2015

Web page:


In this workshop, we reflect on and share the fun and frustrations of 
working in interdisciplinary
research. We ask participants to openly reflect on their experiences of 
interdisciplinarity. What
approaches have worked and what have failed? In addition to identifying 
phenomena, we aim to sketch
out the next decade of interdisciplinary research in computing, 
especially in HCI.

The third paradigm of Human-Computer Interaction focuses on the 
qualitative aspects of use experience
and the situatedness of technologies. This new orientation has drawn in 
researchers from various other
research and arts backgrounds and traditions, including the social 
sciences, architecture and industrial
design among others. Therefore, we consider this third paradigm to be 
inherently interdisciplinary.

Through workshop participants’ reflection of their own experiences, we 
strive to identify the common
problems and pitfalls of interdisciplinary research, and to celebrate 
successes as well as share best
practices. We encourage participants from various backgrounds to apply 
in order to create a space for
genuine interdisciplinary dialogue.
