Call for papers and participation

Workload Assessment Workshop: Now accepting papers on the subject of workload measurement; Workshop at the OzCHI 2016 conference.

When considering the human element in a technological environment, one of the age-old questions is, “how hard is the individual working, in relation to her/his overall capacity?” We will explore the techniques being developed / employed by CHI researchers, and invite theoretical perspectives on this issue. What is workload? How is it best measured? How do the relevant constructs differ across fields of application, including transportation, systems control, user experience, and military application? Further, this venue will provide researchers an opportunity to present work from the diverse domains in which such issues are being considered. Areas of interest may include, but are not limited to: automation of transportation systems; trust in automation; Measurement of workload; Theoretical and practical views on cognitive / mental workload; assessment of team workload.

Importantly, we invite theoretical papers, specifically on the meaning of the construct ‘workload’, and how it relates to performance and task failure. Are there particular reasons to adopt specific phraseology in an operational definition of workload? What elements would such a ‘gold standard’ definition require? How can this decision be justified? Essential to the task of measuring workload, is the preliminary requirement of defining the construct, lest the metric become the construct itself.

Papers in the ‘short paper’ format (4 pages) will be reviewed for presentation in 15 minute time slots, while opportunities for both paper-specific and general discussion will be provided.
