About the Workshop
The ‘Unobtrusive User Experiences with Technology in Nature’ workshop
addresses the overlap of technology usage and experiences with the nature.
The ever-growing omnipresence of technology in our everyday life and the
idea of nature with pure, meditative or adventurous experiences may create
conflicts in values, cultures and user behaviour. On the other hand,
technology may be used to share or intensify experiences, or for bringing a
piece of nature closer (as well as more accessible).

This workshop focuses on the challenge of designing unobtrusive technology
usage and user experiences in nature. We welcome researchers and
practitioners working on ethnographic studies, user research, design cases,
prototype development and artistic installations related to technology and
nature. The one day workshop will include short presentations, exercises
outside of the classroom and with design probes, and a demo session.

To apply to the workshop, submit a max. 4 page position or research paper in
CHI EA format (references will not count towards page limit), through the
Easy Chair submission system NatureCHI Easy Chair. The submissions do not
need to be anonymised.

The papers will be reviewed by the workshop organizers and program
committee. Accepted papers will be made available at the workshop webpage.
Upon acceptance, at least one author of each accepted paper must attend the
workshop. All participants must register for both the workshop and for at
least one day of the conference.

The workshop organisers are currently exploring opportunities for a journal
special issue that will include extended versions of suitable papers submitted
to the workshop.
