Dear all,

Sorry for cross posting.

I would like to share the open call for submission to the CHI 2017 “Refugees & HCI Workshop: The Role of HCI in Responding to the Refugee Crisis” to be held in Denver Colorado on Saturday 7th of May, 2017 followed by a day of engaging with the local refugee community. For more details please visit our website .

Call for Submission:
The different challenges faced by refugee communities and the humanitarian system has instigated a call for technical innovation. Given the versatile nature of refugee contexts this one-day workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers to discuss challenges encountered while engaging with refugee communities and the research methods best fit for conducting research with refugees. Furthermore, the second day of informal meetings we will invite local refugee communities, organizations engaging with refugees and participating researchers to develop a research agenda that identifies the areas in which technology and HCI research can play a role in addressing challenges being faced by refugees. More details regarding the workshop can be found at our website<>.
We invite researchers interested in participating to submit 4-6 page position papers (ACM Extended Abstract<> format). Papers should critically reflect on how the researchers’ research/interest addresses issues faced by refugee communities. Experience reflected on does not have to be specific to work with refugees, however those interested should discuss how lessons learnt and methods used can be adapted and applied to refugee contexts.
Submissions should be sent to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> in .pdf format. Position papers will be reviewed based on relevance to the workshop and the potential for contributing to discussions on methods and the research agenda to be developed during the workshop. At least one co-author of each accepted paper should attend the first day of the workshop and one day of the conference.

Important Dates:
Final Submission Deadline: 20th January 2017
Final Notification: 24th February 2017
Workshop Day: 6th-7th May 2017

We kindly request you circulate this message.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
