Dear colleagues, we invite you to year three of:

Body as Starting Point: Exploring Inbodied Interaction Themes on SUNDAY, APRIL 26 at CHI2020, Honolulu, Hawaii -

Inbodied Interaction aims to align the design of interactive technology with an understanding of our body’s internal processes and how they influence performance.

What would these systems look like? Imagine how we might design HCI tools and interventions that:

- Target performance rather than prevention-only focused health and wellness
- Aim to promote continual adaptation and self-awareness through minimal data doses instead of outsourcing to constant/pervasive data tracking
- Go beyond the simple good vs. bad dichotomy often framed around foods / exercises / behaviors

To design these systems, it really helps to know a few things about how we work under the hood, as the physio-neuro-electro-chemical social systems we are. Come to this workshop to contribute your knowledge, build new ideas and skills, and explore this new area of HCI where we take the body as a starting point.

We look forward to seeing you.
