 Approaching Engagement towards Human-Engaged Computing

 Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting at CHI 2018

 Call for Participation


Debates regarding the nature and role of HCI research and practice have
intensified in recent years, given the ever increasingly intertwined
relations between humans and technologies. The framework of Human-Engaged
Computing (HEC) was proposed and developed over a series of scholarly
workshops to complement mainstream HCI models by leveraging synergy between
humans and computers with its key notion of “engagement”.

Previous workshop meetings found “engagement” to be a constructive and
extendable notion through which to investigate synergized human-computer
relationships, but many aspects concerning the core concept remain
underexplored.  This SIG aims to tackle the notion of engagement.

Focusing on cultivating an inspiring discussion on the notion of
“engagement”, the SIG will provide an excellent opportunity to a broader
audience of the CHI community to share and discuss relevant knowledge and
insights and identify new research opportunities and future directions.

Everybody is cordially invited to participate in the in-person meeting,
which is going to take place during the main conference of CHI 2018 in

Wednesday, April 25, 14:00 - 15:20, Room number – 514A

No prior registration is required.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Montreal!
