We would like to bring to your attention the following workshops at
HCI 2005 in Edinburgh, that are still accepting position papers.  A
1-Day Workshop costs 75.  Unlike other conferences there is no
compulsion to attend the main conference for workshop attendees;
however we would encourage the attendance of HCI 2005 by all.  There
are five high-profile keynotes: Ted Nelson (Oxford Internet
Institute), Mary Czerwinski (Microsoft Research), Alistair Sutcliffe
(UMIST), Ashley Friedlein (, and Jackie Lee-Joe
(Head of Brand Experience for Orange).

The HCI 2005 Workshop Chairs.
