CHI 2017 Workshop: Ubiquitous Text Interaction
Saturday, May 6, 2017

We invite position statements for the CHI 2017 Workshop on Ubiquitous Text Interaction. This one-day workshop offers an interdisciplinary forum for both practitioners and academics interested in interactive systems that rely on text input or output. A particular focus this year is on exploring
the problems and opportunities of text interactions that are embedded in our environments, available at all times, and used by people who may be constrained by device, situation, or disability. For example, text interfaces using wearable devices, head-mounted displays, or interaction when visual feedback is limited or non-existent.

Early submission deadline: December 20, 2016
Normal submission deadline: February 21, 2017

Interested participants should submit a short position statement outlining their background, past work, future plans, and suggesting a use-case they would like to explore during the workshop. During the workshop, small teams will form around compelling use-cases. Teams will spend time brainstorming, creating low-fidelity prototypes, and then presenting and discussing their use-case with the group.

Participants will be selected on the basis of the quality of their position statement. All workshop participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the CHI 2017 conference.

In addition to a position statement, participants are encouraged to submit an optional technical paper for possible inclusion in the workshop program. The separate deadline for paper submission is April 7, 2017. Papers should be in CHI Extended Abstracts Format (maximum eight pages excluding references). Papers will be peer-reviewed with accepted papers being presented as part of the workshop program as a talk, poster, or demo. At least one author must register and attend the workshop.
