===Important Dates===

Submission deadline: Friday 21 June


The Halfway to the Future symposium explores the past, present, and future of themes driving key research in HCI and design. Each theme will be addressed by a dedicated panel anchored by a confirmed keynote speaker discussing one of their influential papers in light of subsequent developments:

·      Ubiquitous Computing – YVONNE ROGERS (UCL) – "Moving on from Weiser's vision of calm computing"
·      Mixed Reality – STEVE BENFORD (University of Nottingham) – "Orchestrating a mixed reality performance"
·      Arts & Design-Led Approaches – BILL GAVER (Goldsmiths, University of London) – "Ambiguity as a resource for design"
·      Public & Private Spaces – CHRISTIAN HEATH (Kings College London) – "Collaboration and control: Crisis management and multimedia technology in London Underground Line Control Rooms"
·      Artificial Intelligence, Humans & Machines – LUCY SUCHMAN (Lancaster University) and ALEX TAYLOR (City, University of London) – "Human-Machine Reconfigurations: Plans and Situated Actions"
·      New Approaches to Research & Design – SUSANNE BØDKER (Aarhus University) – "When second wave HCI meets third wave challenges"

 We invite papers of up to 6,000 words (not including references) addressing current work relating to the themes above. We also invite short papers of up to 2,000 words (not including references) looking towards the future of these themes. Papers can take the form of projected projects, design fictions, manifestos, or anything that fires your imagination. Accepted papers not chosen for panels will be invited to be presented in poster format.

We hope you will consider joining us in creating this unique space for reflecting on the past whilst looking toward the future.

Thank you and best wishes,
Joel Fischer and Jocelyn Spence, Programme Chairs

Halfway to the Future is co-organised by the Mixed Reality Lab, University of Nottingham, as part of celebrations of its 20-year anniversary.
