Dear colleagues, we invite you to year 2 of:

The Body as Starting Point:

Applying Inside Body Knowledge for Inbodied Design - SUNDAY MAY 5 At
CHI2019, Glasgow

Inbodied design is an emerging area in HCI, focusing on using knowledge of
the body’s internal systems and processes to inform em-bodied and
circum-bodied design. This hands-on, cross-domain workshop will enable
participants to take the body as a starting point to create novel and
beneficial experiences for the human body.

Imagine how we might:

use sleep to help us improve spatial navigation - tuning an internal GPS
use movement and eating to be more creative - building the gut-brain axis
use social endocrinology to help introverts & extraverts get along right
build gut-feeling sensitivity to improve decision-making
Use temperature to improve memory
Think about cycles of use to use technology to get off technology for
self-health maintenance?

what would interactive systems that foster these approaches look like?

To address these kinds of questions, it really helps to know a few things
about how we work under our integumentary system, as the
physio-neuro-electro-chemical social systems we are.

Come to this workshop to contribute your knowledge, build new ideas and
skills, and use this workshop to explore,  practice and build this new area
of HCI, when we take the body as a starting point.
