*== Workshop at CHI 2019 *
*== Call for Participation - Challenges Using Head-Mounted Displays in
Shared and Social Spaces*

Everyday mobile usage of Head-Mounted Displays (AR and VR) is becoming a
feasible consumer reality. The current research agenda for these devices
has a strong focus on technological impediments (e.g. locomotion, tracking,
input devices). This ignores significant challenges in the usage and
perception of HMDs in shared and social spaces where HMD users are
co-located with non-HMD users and are likely to be observed while

We invite academics, artists, designers and practitioners to create a
common understanding of upcoming challenges and derive a research agenda
for this new topic. In this CHI 2019 workshop, we will focus on group work
in which we will experience and discuss challenges of HMDs in shared and
social spaces.

**** Important Dates ****

*Submission Deadline: February 1st, 2019*

*Notification: February 28th, 2019*

*Workshop Date: May 05th, 2019 (08:00 - 14:00)*

We invite submissions of position papers: 4 pages in SIGCHI Extended
Abstract format (references excluded) of work within the scope of
challenges and opportunities for HMDs in shared and social spaces (via
EasyChair: Each
participant will have 5 minutes for a oral presentation of his/her work.

*Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:*

**Social Acceptability of HMD Usage*

Participants will be selected according to the suitability of their
research to contribute to the workshop outcome or the relevance of their
workshop position paper. Please note that at least one author of each
