ArabHCI is an initiative inaugurated in CHI17 SIG Meeting that brought
together HCI researchers/practitioners from the Arab World with those who
are conducting/interested in research in this context. The goal was to
start a community that explores challenges and unique opportunities for
future research in Arab countries and with Arab participants. This ArabHCI
workshop aims at drawing a roadmap for future HCI research and practice in
the Arab world. With Arab and non-Arab researchers and practitioners, we
are looking forward to deepening and expanding the discussion on current
research trends in the region and envisioning future agenda by reflecting
on existing practices and synthesizing published research.

We invite researchers, practitioners, and students to envision an agenda
for the future, reflecting on their own practice and research. The workshop
will result in developing a research and/or practice agenda specific to the
Arab world. Submitted position papers must not exceed four pages in the CHI
Extended Abstract Format including references ( The submissions
should be sent in PDF format to ([log in to unmask]). Position papers will
