Dear All,

Due to various requests, we have extended the deadline by one week to 11 June 2021.
All accepted workshop papers will be published in the British HCI Conference proceedings.

 ** Beyond Questionnaire: Innovative Approaches to Evaluating Mixed Reality **
(Workshop in the 33rd British Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Conference,

Date: 19th July 2021 (Monday)
Venue: Online

Important dates:
11 June 2021: Submission deadline  EXTENDED!
22 June 2021:  Author notification
29 June 2021:  Camera-ready version

Mixed Reality (MR) technologies are increasingly used in a range of sectors. Some systematic reviews indicate that questionnaire remains the main method for evaluating the interaction quality of MR. The lack of innovative methods for addressing the unique features of MR such as the use of head-mounted display (HMD) calls for more research effort. In this workshop we aim to explore this issue by inviting participants to share their practical experiences or conceptual ideas of evaluating MR in various contexts. The ultimate aim is to produce a research agenda on this topic for the community to examine it further in the future.

Aim and Objectives
The main aim of the workshop is to explore the key questions: whether and what MR-specific usability and UX evaluation methods are available, how these methods are applied, which factors facilitate or hinder their wider adoption.

The aim informs three objectives:
- To gather practical cases as well as conceptual ideas of applying different evaluation methods and tools for MR technologies in various contexts.
- To identify strengths and weaknesses of such methods and tools and challenges of applying them.
- To develop a research agenda for developing innovative evaluation methods for MR technologies.

Note that while we encourage submissions on HMD-based applications, other MR technologies (e.g. AR markers) being evaluated with new or traditional approaches are much welcome. We aim to analyse and discuss a range of research and practice.

Two types of papers on applying methods and tools for evaluating MR technologies will be solicited.  Authors are required to use the eWiC template ( Full papers (4 to 10 pages excluding references) can present theories, literature reviews or full-fledged empirical studies. Position papers (2 to 4 pages excluding references) are work-in-progress.

Each submission will be peer-reviewed. Accepted Full Papers will be published in the British HCI Conference proceedings.  Authors of the accepted full and position papers will be invited to present in the workshop.

Authors should submit their paper via email to <[log in to unmask]> by 11th June 2021.  Enquiries about the workshop can also be sent to this email address.
