IT-parken, University of Aarhus
CHMI HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERACTION DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM
26 November 2001 (deadline October 17)
see end of this announcement
Sigchi.dk and Centre for Human-Machine Interaction are happy to announce
the first Danish symposium on human-computer interaction research. The
primary aim of the symposium is to stimulate networking in Danish HCI
research, and to enable researchers to get an overview of what is being
done in Denmark recently. Researchers from academia as well as from the
industry are encouraged to participate. All participants have to present
recent work through interactive presentations, i.e displayed on posters and
discussed during the poster session. Experience from e.g. the ACM DIS
conference indicates that this format stimulates creative dialog more
efficiently than the traditional talk format.
10.15-11.00: Keynote address. Peter Bøgh Andersen: Interfaces distributed
in time and space. Ideas from a communication study in the maritime domain.
11.00-11.30: Coffee break
11.30-12.30: Keynote address. Michel Beaudouin-Lafon: Instrumental
Interaction (to be confirmed)
14.00-16.00: Interactive presentations (posters)
16.00-16.30: Coffee break
16.30-18.00: Panel: Do we really need users in HCI research?
and who are they anyway?
panelists: Lisbeth Harms (University of Copenhagen),
Jakob Buur (University of Southern Denmark),
Susanne Bødker (University of Aarhus,
Torkil Clemmensen (Copenhagen Busines School),
Morten Harning (Dialogical)
18.00-??.??: Dinner: dinner speaker Morten Kyng, (DJ to be announced).

As a pre symposium activity Centre for Human-Machine Interaction organises
a doctoral colloquium (ph.d. course) at 26/11/2001.
The course will focus on the writings and writing process of the PhD
students themselves. Each student will be requested to give a 15
minutes talk about their work, and the presentation will be followed
by extensive commenting by the expert panel and the participants.
Accordingly, participation is limited to 6 PhD students.
The course will furthermore include talks by 1-2 expert panel members
about PhD work.
Students interested in participating must submit a 5 pages summary of
their thesis work to Susanne Bødker ([log in to unmask]) no later than
October 17, 2001.
The expert panel is currently under construction.
