CFP: CHI 2021 Workshop on Designing Interactions for the Ageing Populations –
Addressing Global Challenges (http://olderadults.mobi)

* Submission Deadline: February 21, 2021

* One day workshop held online at CHI 2021, Sunday, May 9, 2021

* Organizers:  Sayan Sarcar, Cosmin Munteanu, Neil Charness, Jussi Jokinen,
Xiangshi Ren, Emma Nicol

* Highlights:
·  Thematic discussions (using Miro discussion board)
·  Madness session
 ·  Invited speakers from gerontology and accessibility
·  Many possible collaboration opportunities!
*****************************************************************************

This virtual workshop discusses the principles and strategies to design and
evaluate UIs of digital devices for the ageing population. The topic is
timely, as the Internet-of-Things device has become the most widely used
computer terminal and at the same time the number of older people will soon
exceed the number of children worldwide. However, most HCI research
addresses younger adults and has had little impact on older adults. This
workshop welcomes contributions to empirical studies, theories, design and
evaluation of UIs for older adults. The workshop has three goals: (i) to
map the state-of-art, (ii) to build a community gathering experts from
related areas, and (iii) to raise awareness within the SIGCHI community. We
invite contributions in one or more of four threads: empirical (e.g.,
evaluation), theoretical (e.g. theoretical insights from accessibility,
gerontology, etc.), design (e.g., interface design), and evaluation.
Details are on the workshop website: http://chi.olderadults.mobi. The
contributions are expected to align with the overall workshop theme of
“Ageing across borders” by particularly reflecting on what is specific to
the regional/cultural context of the research described in the position
paper (and where possible, contextualizing it through comparison to other
regions/cultures).

We welcome all HCI topics related to older adults and digital devices. The
topics include, but not limited to:
-  Effects of decline in perceptual, cognitive, and motor performance on
digital devices use
-  Models of user performance
-  Understanding device ecology and leveraging it to design suitable
interfaces
-  UI design patterns and metaphors
-  Opportunities to sustain older adults’ current activities and practices
through digital technologies
-  Societal implications, including the digital divide and social exclusion.
-  Bridging Social Computing and senior-centred HCI4D
-  Evaluation methodologies
-  Ethical concerns

Several key questions will be discussed in the workshop, e.g., 1) How does
user behavior for performing tasks with several digital devices (e.g.,
mobile device, TV remote, home appliances) change across age? 2) How well
can psychological theory capture individual differences in older adult task
behavior? 3) What is the basis for proposing application design guidelines
for older adults in digital devices? 4) Can mathematical and simulation
models automatically design a UI adaptive to older user behavior? At the
workshop, we intend to showcase some topic related research works through
short presentations of authors as well as plenary discussions and birds of
a feather group, focusing on areas of interest that are important to the
greater older adult community.

We are also currently finalizing agreements with a journal publisher for a
special topics issue on Interactive Technologies for Older Adults. A
selected set of accepted top quality position papers from the CHI workshop will
have their authors invited to submit full papers to this special topics
issue. Details will be finalized before the workshop day.

* Submission
A 6-page (excluding references) position paper in the CHI Master Article
Submission Template (
https://chi2021.acm.org/for-authors/chi-publication-formats) (PDF file)
should be sent to [log in to unmask] Position papers will be
reviewed based on relevance to the workshop and the potential for
contributing to discussions on methods and the research agenda to be
developed during the workshop.

* Registration
At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the
workshop and
all workshop participants must register for both the workshop and for at
least one day of the conference.

* Important Dates
Submission Deadline: February 21, 2021
Notification sent to authors: February 28, 2021
Workshop Day: Sunday, May 9, 2021
