Human Work Interaction Design 2021 (HWID'21)

Artificial Intelligence and Designing for Positive Work Experiences in 
Low Desire Society

Working Conference of the IFIP WG 13.6 Human Work Interaction Design

Beijing, China - May 15-16, 2021

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers are considering to 
enable a remote partecipation modality. Rates and instructions will be 
published later this year on the website.


In continuation with the series of the Human Work Interaction Design 
(HWID) working conferences, this sixth edition's theme is Artificial 
Intelligence and Designing for Positive Work Experiences in the ‘Low 
Desire’ Society.

HWID has been endeavouring to enhance the positive work experiences at 
workplaces by providing employees pleasurable and meaningful user 
experiences via the tools used at work. HWID'21 directs attention to the 
‘low desire’ phenomenon, which is that people have lower desire for 
success, no ambitions, needs, or expectations, they push back against 
working around the clock, avoid conflicts, yearn to be free of strong 
feelings, and do not to take anyone or anything too seriously. HWID'21 
attempts to look into the relationship between happiness and IT-enabled 
overworking, the resulting work experiences, and how to provide 
solutions from the perspective of Human Work Interaction Design.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is making a difference to the workplace and 
complicating the situation further. On one hand, AI replace human 
workers by working faster with fewer errors than humans, which enable AI 
to do many of the boring and redundant jobs. On the other hand, many 
organisations are already beginning to use the AI as a design element to 
enhance human intelligence, and design positive experiences in the 
workplace. As a result, there are growing concerns that AI will take 
away jobs from humans. The theme of HWID'21 emphasizes the insights into 
the relationship between low desire and work experience, and how AI will 
moderate their relationship because parts of the work might be taken 
away by AI.

Examples of relevant questions include:
- Is the ‘low desire’ phenomenon making work less interesting?
- How to improve work experience supported by AI?
- How to support the symbiosis of human and AI in workplace through HWID?
- How to maintain work motivation?
- How to evaluate the impact of AI on work experience?
- How to address ethical factors (e.g. privacy, safety and equity) of 
using AI in the workplace?

This working conference aims to answer these and more questions by 
involving professionals working in academia, national labs, and industry 
who are engaged in human work analysis and interaction design for the 
workplace. We will discuss tools, procedures, and professional 
competences needed to face issues and opportunities provided by AI in a 
Low Desire Society.

We invite two types of submissions:

Full papers (max 15 pages, excluding references) and Poster submissions 
(max 4 pages, excluding references). For both types of submissions, the 
authors must use the LNCS templates available on Springer 
Please submit your anonymized paper in PDF format on OCS:

Each paper will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The collection of 
all accepted papers will be distributed to the participants as digital 
proceedings. During the review process, the reviewers will be asked to 
evaluate whether an extended version of the paper is suitable for an 
IFIP Springer book (IFIP Advances in Information and Communication 
Technology) that will be edited and published after the conference. We 
aim at including most of the accepted papers.

Full paper submission deadline: February 14th, 2021
Poster submission deadline: February 21st, 2021
Acceptance notifications: March 14th, 2021
Early bird registration deadline: March 21st, 2021
Final versions of papers and posters: April 4th, 2021
