Call for Participation: CHI 2017 Workshop on Ethical Encounters in HCI – NEW DEADLINE

This is the third in a series of CHI workshops on Ethical Encounters in HCI that will be held as part of the annual ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, held in Denver, USA, May 6-11 2017.

Important Dates:

- Submission deadline: 27th January 2017

- Notification: 3rd February 2017

- Workshop day: 6th May 2017

The workshop aims to foster discussion and support HCI researchers facing ethical challenges, focusing in particular on challenges encountered in sensitive or complex settings. HCI researchers are now designing, implementing, and studying technologies in increasingly sensitive settings. Examples include: designing with/for aged care, with people experiencing homelessness, or to address complex mental health issues. In this workshop we will focus on developing an online resource and guidelines to assist other researchers undertaking technology research in similar settings.

We invite researchers to submit 2-6 page position papers (in ACM Extended Abstract format) that:

• Describe particular ethical challenge(s) researchers have faced (and discuss how these were/might have been addressed); and/or

• Present a “provocation” (a “what if” scenario) that challenges the current status quo with respect to the ethical conduct of HCI research with human participants; and/or

• Propose practical or policy solutions/ways forward to ensure future HCI researchers are equipped to face ethical challenges during research with human participants.

Submissions should be sent in .pdf format to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Position papers will be reviewed by a committee of experts and selected on the basis of relevance to the workshop themes, quality of presentation, and potential to stimulate discussion.

At least one author of each accepted submission must register for the workshop and at least one day of the main conference. For more information, see:
