The 28th British HCI Conference:
** UPDATED ** Workshop Program and Call for Participation
9 September 2014, Southport, UK
The workshop chairs are happy to announce a fourth workshop in the program offer. The following four workshops will run on the 9th of September 2014, in conjunction with the HCI 2014 conference. Proposals should be submitted directly to workshop organisers. See the details on the website<> for each workshop for the relevant call for participation.

Agile User Experience
Both industry-based and academic participants are invited to attend this workshop run by the Agile Research Network. The aim of the workshop is to encourage academic and industrial attendees to share their research results and first-hand experience on integrating agile development processes and UX, in order to understand challenges affecting agile and UX integration; identify and explore different practices and success factors for integrating agile and UX; pinpoint current issues for industrial practitioners; and clarify future research directions for academic practitioners.
HCI and Impact
The need to demonstrate "impact" through research is becoming increasingly important as policy makers, funders, clients and the public focus on it. Within HCI there are many different approaches to impact at it is not well understood how best to create, support or assess it, nor how to share best practice with other researchers and practitioners. Through this workshop we intend to unpick the meaning of impact within HCI and explore how we should change our practices to hone and refine the impact that we create through our research.
Uses of Computer Literacy: Beyond Programming to Creating Cultural Experiences
This workshop will investigate the creative tools and processes that enable the creation and control of personal culture. We intend to build on previous experiences for a day of exploring history, ideas and artifacts for a continued creative push in HCI.
Workshop Teen Interactions
Teenagers are prolific and demanding users of interactive technologies. Their dynamism in this space and innate short termism results in products with shorter shelf lives than those developed for and used by adults. The aim of this workshop is to engage participants in sharing their experiences, reporting upon methodologies for research with teenagers and discussing the commonalities of teenage technology interactions with a view to understanding this distinct population against the backdrop of HCI and technology development.

Further details:
See the HCI 2014 website for full details of the workshops<>, including calls for participation.
Workshops will be held in the Victorian seaside town of sunny Southport, running on the 9th of September, ahead of the main conference on the 10th-12th of September.
Proposals should be submitted directly to workshop organisers. See the details for each workshop<> for the relevant call for participation. Workshop registration will be managed through the conference website, with participants asked to pay a fee of £120.
