*Hacking Blind Navigation* Workshop at CHI'19, Glasgow, UK, May 4th, 2019

*Call for Papers:*
Independent navigation is a major challenge for people with visual
impairments, in particular in unfamiliar or complex environments. There is
a multi-disciplinary effort in the CHI community to support independent
navigation through assistive technologies, but also in related disciplines,
such as accessible computing, cognitive sciences and computer vision.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together these communities to increase
awareness on recent advances on navigation assistive technologies. We see
the field benefiting from different perspectives and expertise, discussions
on open research challenges, as well as exploration of new avenues for
multi-disciplinary collaborations. The workshop consists of an interactive
panel, minute-madness presentations and a hands-on session to design or
prototype new solutions to tackle open research challenges. More
information on the workshop can be found at

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit position papers in the
SIGCHI Extended Abstract format (four-page maximum, excluding references).
Papers should summarize authors' past and current research in the workshop
theme, and one open research challenge for discussion in the workshop.
Submissions should be sent to [log in to unmask] in PDF format.
Position papers will be peer-reviewed based on relevance to the workshop
theme, diversity of research communities, and the potential for impact and
novelty. At least one co-author of each accepted paper must attend the
workshop and all participants must register for the workshop and for at
least one day of the conference.

*Important Dates:*
*NEW Submission Deadline: 19 February 2019*  ([log in to unmask]
