The 2nd Workshop on
Hacking and Making at Time-bounded Events: Current Trends and Next Steps in Research and Event Design

In conjunction with CHI 2018,<>
Montreal, Canada | April 21-26

Time-bounded intensive events or hackathons where teams work together under intense time pressure are becoming increasingly popular across disciplines. Yet little is known about how to design a hackathon for intended outcomes, what influences event design, what benefits hackathons offer, and what the larger impact of hackathons on intellectual communities and on the society as a whole are. Following the CHI’s successful way of integrating diverse perspectives to create new and innovative solutions, this one-day workshop will bring together researchers interested in time-bounded events, experienced event organizers, and individuals interested in running their own events in the future. The objectives are to facilitate sharing hackathon-related experiences, consolidating existing research, and building and strengthening academic-industry partnerships to enable new research opportunities.

Paper submission guidelines:
Submissions should be a single PDF file between 2-4 pages in total, and should include a short overview of each author’s background, their interest in this field, and motivation for participation in the workshop, as well as a description of one or more workshop themes of particular interest to the authors. This may be in a form of summarizing research ideas, recounting an experience with related event, or story drawn from participant’s own research or event. Supplementary materials can also be submitted. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the workshop organizers. Details can be found at<>.

**We require at least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop, and all participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the main conference.**

Important dates:
Paper submission deadline: January 26, 2018
Notification of acceptance:      February 22, 2018
Workshop day: April 21 or 22, 2018
