CHI 2017 Workshop on Designing Speech, Acoustic, and Multimodal
Interactions (DSLI 2017)

Call for position papers
* January 25th, 2017: Submission of position papers
* February 8th, 2017: Notification of acceptance
* February 22nd, 2017: Camera-ready submissions

This workshop aims to bring together interaction designers, usability
researchers, and general HCI and speech processing practitioners. Our goal
is to create, through an interdisciplinary dialogue, momentum for
increased research and collaboration in:

* Formally framing the challenges to the widespread adoption of speech,
acoustic, and natural language interaction,
* Taking concrete steps toward developing a framework of user-centric
design guidelines for speech-, acoustic-, and language-based interactive
systems, grounded in good usability practices,
* Establishing directions to take and identifying further research
opportunities in designing more natural interactions that make use of
speech and natural language, and
* Identifying key challenges and opportunities for enabling and designing
multi-input modalities for a wide range of emerging devices such as
wearables, smart home personal assistants, or social robots.

We invite the submission of position papers demonstrating research,
design, practice, or interest in areas related to speech, acoustic.
language, and multimodal interaction that address one or more of the
workshop goals, with an emphasis, but not limited to, applications such as
mobile, wearable, smart home, social robots, or pervasive computing.

Position papers should be 4-6 pages long, in the ACM SIGCHI extended
abstract format and include a brief statement justifying the fit with the
workshop's topic. Summaries of previous research are welcome if they
contribute to the workshop's multidisciplinary goals (e.g. a speech
processing research in clear need of HCI expertise). Submissions will be
reviewed according to:
* Fit with the workshop topic
* Potential to contribute to the workshop goals
* A demonstrated track of research in the workshop area (HCI and/or
speech, acoustic, or multimodal processing).
