CHI 2009 Workshop
Defining the Role of HCI in the Challenges of Sustainability

*** Call for Participation ***

Global climatic change and other current environmental challenges have
created an urgent need for innovation and solutions to address these
problems. While the HCI community has a wide set of techniques for
ensuring that interactive technologies meet the needs of present day
users, less is known about how to measure and design for a positive
impact on future generations. This workshop seeks to channel the
community's knowledge and expertise regarding user practice, design,
development, and evaluation to expose and define directions for
sustainable interaction design and development.

About the Workshop:

This one-day workshop will include brief introductions, breakout
sessions, and group discussion surrounding the following focus
questions:
 -What are the challenges for sustainable design and development
and how can HCI help address them?
 -How can sustainability be taken into account in various aspects
of HCI practice, including requirements gathering, design,
prototyping, development, and evaluation?
 -How can we define success in sustainable interaction design, and
how can designs or systems be critiqued, evaluated, measured, or
otherwise assessed for sustainability?

Position Papers:

We welcome submissions from authors who are interested in and/or
currently working in the area of sustainable interaction design.
Position papers should describe your work on the topic, ideas for how
HCI can inform sustainability, or ideas about HCI challenges to
sustainability.
Please email submissions of 1500 words or fewer in PDF format by
October 24th to [log in to unmask]

At least one author of accepted papers must register for the workshop
and at least one day of the conference. More information on the
workshop can be found at:
