**CHI 2015 Workshop: Leveraging and Integrating Eastern and Western
Insights into Human Engagement Studies in HCI**

*2nd Call for Participation with Extended Deadline, due to repeated
This one-day workshop will be held as part of CHI 2015, Seoul, South
Korea, 18-23 April 2015.

Important Dates:

-   Notification of acceptance: 13th February 2015
-   Workshop day: 19th April 2015

Workshop website:

Human engagement is at the heart of every interactive technology. A
concrete framework for synergizing the capabilities of humans and
technologies to allow fully engaging interactions to happen is yet to be
developed. We posit that such a framework should be grounded in a deeper
understanding of human nature (e.g., mind-body relations), which in the
field of HCI has primarily been built upon the Western philosophies.
There are scattered, underexplored Eastern ideas (e.g., YiJing, Zen) or
"mindfulness" that may provide new lens and tools to analyze how humans
engage with technological artifacts.

This workshop aims to provide: (i) a learning venue where participants
can together explore existing Eastern knowledge insights, and how they
can be used to better understand human engagement and to draw
implications for designing technologies, and (ii) a discussion venue to
identify potentially new research and industrial opportunities open by
these new perspectives.

We invite contributors to submit papers addressing one or more of four
- theoretical (e.g. identifying promising Eastern frameworks)
- practical (e.g., analyzing methodologies of existing work)
- reflective (e.g. critique on the notion of human engagement) and
- programmatic (e.g., developing a research agenda).

Submissions should be of 4-6 pages ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstract format.
All submissions will be reviewed by the organizers of its relevance to
the proposed theme. The paper in PDF file format should be sent via
email to**Effie Law**<[log in to unmask]>. Contributors will be asked to
bring along an A1-poster to facilitate discussions.

Authors of accepted papers, of sufficient quality, will have an opportunity
to extend, revise and resubmit them to the special issue on interactive
arts and design in Leonardo Transactions (MIT Press, (Please note that Prof. Ernest
Edmonds Editor-in-Chief mentions that Leonardo Transactions is concerned
with art, so we will not accept design papers or pure HCI, the papers can
be about HCI and art (interactive art) for example or any other
science/technology art connection.)
