Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the call for participation in
the ACM CHI 2019 Workshop on Computational Modeling in Human-Computer
Interaction. The plain text of the call is below. For more
information, please visit

Computational Modeling in Human-Computer Interaction
ACM CHI 2019 Workshop – Glasgow, UK – Sunday, May 5, 2019

Call for Participation

Computational Modeling is a rapidly emerging topic in HCI that offers
a promise to address the challenges of increasing complexity of human
behaviors we are able to track and collect today. The goal of this
workshop is to reconcile two seemingly competing approaches to
computational modeling: theoretical modeling, which seeks to explain
behaviors vs. algorithmic modeling, which seeks to predict behaviors.
The workshop will address:

1) Convergence of the two approaches at the intersection of HCI
2) Updates to theoretical and methodological foundations
3) Bringing disparate modeling communities to CHI,
4) Sharing datasets, code, and best practices.

This workshop seeks to establish Computational Modeling as a
theoretical foundation for work in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) to
model the human accurately across domains and support design,
optimization, and evaluation of user interfaces to solve a variety of
human-centered problems.

Potential participants should submit a 3 to 6 pages long position
paper (including references) in the CHI Extended Abstracts Format
describing their interest and/or previous work related to the workshop
topic. Papers should be submitted to EasyChair
( by **March 1,
2019**. We will select papers based on relevance, quality, and
diversity. At least one author of each accepted position paper must
attend the workshop and all participants must register for both the
workshop and for at least one day of the conference.

***Important Dates***
March 1, 2019 (11:59 GMT) – submission deadline (EasyChair
March 7, 2019 – submission decisions.
May 5, 2019 – workshop.
