Call for Papers
CHI 2010 workshop -* Senior-Friendly Technologies: Interaction Design for
the Elderly *

to be held conjunction with CHI2010, Atlanta, GA, USA

10 April 2010

 Submission Deadline: 03 January 2010


Not enough attention has been given to research on interactive products and
applications specifically for the elderly.  Yet, senior citizens make up a
growing base of people who can potentially draw benefits, such as
entertainment, socialization or mental exercise, by engaging with
technology.  This workshop aims to address research questions involving
design guidelines, methodological issues and contextual analysis amongst
others.  The workshop seeks to gather designers, academics in human-computer
interaction or other related fields, and researchers, who have preferably
worked with the elderly before or are familiar with their environments.

Submissions are invited on (but not limited to) the following themes:

       Identifying key ways or roles that the elderly can play in the
design process

       Formulating user requirements for elderly interaction design

       Understanding factors that influence elderly adoption and acceptance
of technologies

Submissions should be a maximum of 4 pages in the CHI Extended Abstracts
format (Word/PDF) describing the area of research, specific work (empirical
or theoretical) on the workshop topic.

Submissions should be emailed to [log in to unmask] with subject line
as *CHI 2010 workshop submission*.  In the email for submission of the
position paper, the contact author is required to indicate how many authors
will be attending the workshop if the paper is accepted.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee.
will be selected to represent diverse perspectives and papers will be
selected by relevance and likelihood of stimulating and contributing to
discussion.  Note that at least one author of each accepted paper will need
to register for the workshop and for one or more days of the CHI conference
