Workshop at PETRA 2020, Greece, Corfu

20 March 2020	   Submission Deadline
22 April 2020	   Notification Date
30 April 2020	   Camera-ready version due

The fundamental change that is happening in manufacturing transforms the practice of running independent manufacturing units to the implementation of novel and networked cyber-physical systems. The digitalization of industrial production, often referred to as “Industrie 4.0” (GER), “Industrial Internet of Things” (US), or “Industrie du Futur” (FRA), lays the groundwork for more flexible and efficient ways of producing goods. This new approach is often highly complex, putting strains on the operators and supervisors of such systems. Hence, new research questions related to the assistance of humans in the industrial context arise. The goal of this workshop is to develop a common understanding of challenges and opportunities that contemporary assistive technologies create.

Topics of submissions are encouraged but not limited to covering the following areas of assistive environments for manufacturing:

* New interaction concepts for assistive environments
* Combining cognitive and physical assistance at the workplace
* Tools and design techniques
* Transfer of HCI concepts into industrial practice
* Stationary or mobile assembly tasks
* Monitoring or controlling cyber-physical systems
* Assistance through Human-Robot Collaboration
* Learning and education
* Assistive systems for special needs
* Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
* Projection-based interfaces
* Voice-User Interfaces
* Artificial Intelligence
* Mobile and wearable devices
* Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
* Haptic Enhancement of Digital Experiences
* Usability and user experience of assistive environments in industry
* Prototyping AR and VR
* Evaluation methods
* User and cognitive models
* Social and ethical aspects
* Technological acceptance

Up to 10 Pages in the SIGCHI Extended Abstract format
Further Information:

All submission will be reviewed by the workshop organizers. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop and all participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the conference. Accepted papers will be presented in the form of talks.
