Call for Participation: CHI 2016 Workshop on Ethical Encounters in HCI

Important Dates:

 Submission deadline: 8 January 2016

 Notification: 15 January 2016

 Workshop day: 7 or 8 May 2016

HCI research is moving into increasingly sensitive and challenging settings. New technologies are now being designed and evaluated with vulnerable or marginalized participants in contexts that can be emotionally challenging for researchers, participants, and others involved in the research. Research conducted in these sensitive and emerging areas can produce complex ethical dilemmas. Building on previous workshops, this CHI 2016 workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers to share experiences and learn from ethical challenges encountered in HCI research conducted in sensitive settings. From this workshop we aim to develop an edited collection of case studies highlighting practical strategies to inform good practice for future HCI research. Attendees will be invited to develop their workshop paper into a chapter for the book.

We invite researchers working in sensitive settings to submit 4-6 page case studies (in ACM Extended Abstract<> format) that: a) describe ethical challenges they have experienced in their research, and b) illustrate how they addressed or responded to those challenges.

Submissions should be sent in .pdf format to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Submissions will be reviewed by the committee and selected on the basis of relevance to the workshop themes, quality of presentation, and potential to stimulate discussion.

At least one author of each accepted submission must register for the workshop and at least one day of the main conference. For more information, please visit:
