*Call for Submissions of Position Papers to Bridge AIS SIGHCI and ACM

*One Day Workshop at CHI 2018, Montreal, Quebec, CanadaWorkshop
Date: Sunday, April 22, 2018Deadline for Submissions: Monday, January 29,
2018 by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time*

The goal of the workshop is to build a bridge between two communities, AIS
SIGHCI and ACM SIGCHI, to create a better understanding of common goals and
interests, as well as to share potentially different perspectives and
priorities, within and across both communities. By bridging the AIS SIGHCI
and ACM SIGCHI communities, the impact of the HCI field and the
sustainability of HCI research as a whole could be enhanced.

There is a three-horned problem that all researchers must tackle, which is
to optimize the trade-offs between: 1) measuring the phenomena of interest
with precision and scientific rigor, 2) realism of the context being
studied, and 3) generalizability of findings to a broader context and/or
population. The workshop will also strive to address this classic
three-horned dilemma faced by all researchers, and more specifically,
within the context of HCI research. Through this workshop, we hope to
create synergies by fostering new collaborations across the greater
community of HCI researchers and practitioners at large.

Hence, we invite submissions of position papers that examine and address
issues that can help to bridge both communities. A position paper is a
well-rationalized stance on a topic related to the workshop themes
justified through theory, literature, or empirical work. Examples of
position papers include those that identify similarities and commonalities
as well as bridge potential differences in priorities and perspectives of
both communities. Position papers may also address the three-horned dilemma
from a wide variety of perspectives with the goal of building synergies and
potential collaborations across the greater community of HCI researchers
and practitioners at large.

Other examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

*       Comparisons between AIS SIGHCI and ACM SIGCHI core values based on
the experience of people who have already bridged the two fields.

*       Conceptual papers about different types of HCI contributions (e.g.,
theory building, social impact) made by either or both fields, as well as
potential weaknesses that could be mitigated by bridging.

*       Methodological papers from either HCI discipline (e.g., qualitative
and quantitative approaches) that speak to the three-horned problem.

*       Forward-thinking proposals for how to build synergies and
sustainable collaborations among researchers from both HCI communities.

Interested participants should:

*       Refer to the call for workshop position papers at

*       Submit a 2-4 page position paper formatted in the SIGCHI extended
abstracts format shown at
It should include the names, contact information, and affiliations of
authors.  All submissions must be in English.

*       Email the submission to [log in to unmask] by 11:59 p.m. Pacific
Standard Time on Monday, January 29, 2018.

Position papers will be peer-reviewed by the workshop program committee
from both communities, and submissions will be accepted based on the
relevance of the topic, as well as the potential to contribute to the
workshop discussions and goals. Position papers are not considered archival
publications and authors retain all rights to their work. However, with
authors' permission, position papers will be shared publicly via the
workshop's website.


*       January 29, 2018: Position paper CFP deadline

*       January 30, 2018 - February 16, 2018: Submissions reviewed by
program committee

attend the workshop and all participants must register for both the
workshop and for at least one day of the conference (CHI 2018).
