CFP *** 3rd International Workshop on Human-Centered Computing ***
October 31, 2008, Vancouver, Canada - in conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2008


*** Papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library ***

Research work AND position statements. We really would like to encourage
submissions from the HCI community!

1. Research work (8 page maximum)

Research contributions will be presented in poster format, but the
proceedings will not differentiate between poster and oral presentations.
Topics include, but are not limited to the following:

· Human-centered applications in any area 
· HCC data analysis (e.g., exploratory data analysis, methods that consider
cultural and psychological aspects of data)
· Machine learning with a human-in-the loop
· User, context, and task modeling
· Ubiquitous computing
· Human interaction modeling
· Social network analysis and human behaviour analysis
· Computing for development
· Ethnographic praxis and user Studies
· Description of artworks or art-related projects

2. Position statements and experience papers (8 page maximum)

These works are presented in oral format (10 minutes), may be acompanied by
a poster, and may address any of the following non-exhaustive list of topics:

· Computing perspectives from humanist fields
· HCC design methodologies
· HCC perspectives and lessons from the field of HCI
· Research methodologies that involve multiple disciplines
· HCC defiinitions (areas covered by HCC)
· Sample HCC Systems, methods, or approaches and comparisons to non-HCC work
· Core techniques and methods in HCC
· Theoretical foundations of HCC
· Cultural and social issues in multimedia modeling
· Ethnocomputing & diversity in computing
· Experiential and affective issues aspects of computing
· Sociential aspects of computing
· Privacy, ethics and related aspects of computing

Workshop Format

This will be a hands-on workshop with minimum time for presentation and
maximum time for interaction:

· Attendees will be divided into small groups
· A particular scenario will be given, such as the one described in Marc
Weisers pioneering article, “The Computer for the 21st Century”, available
· Each group will be given a task (e.g., model context, design a system,
etc.) and will be asked to identify the core HCC methods, techniques or
processes needed to realize the task
· Groups with similar tasks will compare notes and “defend” their findings
in front of the other groups
· Accepted articles will be used as a base to form the groups and guide the
