IDC 2019 Workshop on Immersive Media Design & Children
Call for Participation
Deadline: April 5, 2019

Immersive Media Design and Children is a one-day workshop to be held at the 2019 ACM Interaction Design and Children Conference in Boise, Idaho.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together a community of researchers, designers, practitioners, and other experts who are interested in the responsible design of immersive media--or augmented, virtual, mixed, and cross reality--for children, while taking into account children's developmental needs, equity, and inclusivity.

Together, we will discuss and make connections across our work, participate in hands-on activities, and begin producing a set of design guidelines for immersive media for children, grounded in our collective experience, research, and knowledge of the field. We will publish these guidelines as a white paper after the workshop to distribute them to interested industries, developers, designers, and more to positively impact the future of childhood.

We invite interested participants to submit a short position paper that includes their research/interest area, what they hope to get out of the workshop, and a brief personal bio (2-4 pages in CHI Extended Abstract format, new or old). We welcome participants who work with children and immersive media or who have knowledge about children that may apply to the design of immersive media for children, regardless of any experience with these systems.

At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop by registering for both the workshop and the main conference.
