*************** Call for Papers ***************

In the ubiquitous computing era, where people can seamlessly access with 
huge quantity of digital information, most interactions are still 
performed through graphical user interfaces, which limit the number of 
human senses and abilities involved. This workshop aims at discussing 
the rich possibilities that the body offers us to experience the 
external world and the prospects that arise for the interaction 
designers when these often-neglected abilities are taken into account. 
In particular, the workshop will focus on the rediscovery of the five 
senses, either alone or in a multimodal combination, and of the 
perceptual-motor abilities of our body. We encourage the participation 
of young practitioners but also more experienced researchers from 
different backgrounds (design, engineering, computing, arts, social 
sciences, neurosciences, ergonomics, etc.), with previous experience in 
multisensory interaction, full-body interaction or embodied cognition. 
Following the success of the first BodySenseUX workshops at UbiComp’15 
and TEI’16, this will be a one-day or half-day* workshop of discussions 
and hands-on activities, focused on physically experiencing our body and 
senses. At the beginning of the workshop, participants will have the 
possibility to briefly present and discuss with the other attendees 
their research. During the next phases of the workshop, participants 
will have the possibilities to explore and rediscover their sensorimotor 
abilities through several exercises and games. Interdisciplinary groups 
will be challenged to design and develop new interaction experience 
concepts using our natural ‘tools’ as prototyping tools. Ready-to-use 
prototyping materials will be provided.

_People interested in participating to the workshop are kindly requested 
to send an expression of interest to __fullbodysenseux (at) gmail (dot) 
com, specifying if they would like to submit a paper or only to attend 
the workshop*
