Ecological perspectives in HCI: Promise, Problems, and Potential
A CHI 2015 workshop in Seoul, Korea
====================================

Further details at: http://rizzo.media.unisi.it/EPCHI2015
Important Dates:
- Submission by: January 5th, 2015
- Notification of Acceptance by: February 13th, 2015
- Workshop: April 18th or April 19th, 2015
 
Given the important, and ever increasing, role played by “ecology” and related terms in HCI, there is a need for the field to reflect on the history and state of the art in employing ecological concepts and perspectives, and outline directions for future development. This one-day workshop will contribute to addressing this need by providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the promise, problems, and potential of ecological perspectives in HCI.
 
The aim of the workshop is to reflect on interpretations and uses of ecology and related concepts in HCI research and explore the future of ecological perspectives in HCI.  In particular, the participants will discuss the potential of ecological perspectives for supporting rich and meaningful analysis, as well as innovative design, of interactive technologies in real-life contexts.
 
Some of the issues to be addressed at the workshop include (but are not limited to):
     - Different interpretations and uses of “ecology” in HCI.
     - The reasons why ecological perspectives are popular in HCI research (e.g., identifying the perceived benefits of adopting an ecological perspective).
     - The main difficulties associated with applying the concepts of ecology, habitat, etc., in HCI research.
     - Integration of physical and digital objects within a particular ecology.
     - The relationship between the structure, functioning, and development of an ecology, on the one hand, and user experience, on the other.
     - Frameworks, models, and methods for studying ecologies.
     - The implications of the shift of focus of HCI toward ecologies for design research and practice (e.g., for the meaning of “design” and “designer”).
     - Ecological perspectives in HCI research on sustainability.
 
SUBMISSIONS
We invite the submission of position papers, 2-4 pages in the ACM Extended Abstract format (http://chi2015.acm.org/authors/format) offering perspectives on one or more of the above topics.
