Hi all,

Apologies in advance for cross-posting, but I wanted to make sure all interested parties would receive information about this exciting workshop titled “Co-Designing Technologies for Citizen Scientist Engagement & Saving Species”. This proposed workshop would be part of a larger technology design conference called the 29th Australian Conference on Human-Computer Interaction<> that is from November 28th to December 1st, 2018.

Call for Abstracts!

This full-day workshop will explore of how human computer interaction (HCI) design approaches can expand, diversify, and improve ways that members of the public engage with nature and science as citizen scientists. Activities during the workshop will enable members of the design and citizen science communities to network and generate ideas together. It is anticipated this workshop will result in a white paper discussing ideas generated.

Who Can Participate?

Prospective participants may include HCI researchers, student and professional designers, as well as members of the citizen science community. Participants are welcome from academic, industry, not-for-profit, or other backgrounds.

How to Participate?

Prospective participants are to submit an abstract from 500 to 2,000 words, depending upon whether you wish to briefly describe an idea or elaborate in more detail. Abstracts might propose ideas for:\

  *   a new project,
  *   enhancements to an existing project, or
  *   an HCI topic relevant to citizen science engagement (e.g. interaction designs, methods, theories).
  *   Participants should also consider including a bit of background and/or research experience in relation to themselves and their proposed ideas.

Proposals from the HCI community may relate to the participant’s own research, so long as concepts are extendable to citizen science, such as:

  *   Gamification
  *   Participatory Design
  *   Data Visualization
  *   Internet of Things
  *   Critical Design
  *   Cultural Studies
  *   And other innovative HCI topics

Abstracts should be emailed directly as a PDF to the workshop Chair, Jessie Cappadonna-Oliver at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>

Important Dates

  *   Deadline for submission: October 22
  *   Notification of acceptance: October 29
  *   Workshop day: November 28

Beyond October 22nd, abstracts will be considered depending on available space.

For background, plan, and organiser information about the workshop please visit the OzCHI workshop website<> and interested Twitter users, feel free to retweet my workshop post<>! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Best regards,


On behalf of myself and co-organisers Dr Mark Cottman-Fields, Professor Margot Brereton, and Professor Paul Roe.
