CFP for OzCHI'16 Workshop on:

Digital Participation: Engaging Diverse and Marginalised Communities

Digital participation is still most effectively utilised by particular sections of society. Socially excluded, diverse and marginalised people, such as people with disability, older people, disadvantaged youth and women, people identifying as LGBTI, Indigenous people and others, are particularly vulnerable to digital non-participation, and under-participation, thereby compounding disadvantage. Further, communities are disadvantaged due to place, often due to lack of access to resources, digital technology or telecommunications infrastructure.

This OzCHI 2016 conference workshop provides a forum for HCI researchers and others to identify practical, innovative, and sensitive solutions to support sustained digital participation for disadvantaged communities. One outcome from the workshop is to develop a set of guidelines for HCI researchers and others working in this space.

We invite position papers of up to 4 pages (in OzCHI format) that describe experiences of:

         Fostering digital skills at home and in the community
         Designing, developing, adapting and utilising technology for digital inclusion
         The role of proxies and champions for supporting digital inclusion and participation
         Strategies for recognising and responding to sensitivities during the research process
         Sustaining digital inclusion beyond the life of the research project

Position papers will be selected on the basis of relevance to the workshop, quality of presentation, and potential to stimulate discussion. Papers will typically be made public on the workshop website. At least one author for each accepted submission must register for the workshop.
