Due to several requests, we have extended the submission deadline of
CHI-GDPR workshop to 11 February 2018.

CFP - Apologies for multiple copies

The First International Workshop on General Data Protection Regulation
(chi-GDPR 2018)

@ CHI 2018 Engage with HCI


Within HCI, researchers conduct studies in interdisciplinary projects
involving massive volumes of data, Artificial Intelligence and Machine
Learning capabilities. Awareness of the responsibility is thus emerging as
a key concern for the HCI community. This Community will be impacted by the
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that will enter into force on the
25th of May 2018. From that date, each data controller and data processor
will face an increase of its legal obligations (in particular its
accountability) under certain conditions.

The GDPR encourages the adoption of Soft Law mechanisms, approved by the
national competent authority on data protection, to demonstrate the
compliance to the Regulation. Approved Guidelines, Codes of Conducts,
Labeling, Marks and Seals dedicated to data protection, as well as
certification mechanisms are some of the options proposed by the GDPR.
There may be discrepancies between the realities of HCI fieldwork and the
formal process of obtaining Soft Law approval by Competent Authorities
dedicated to data protection. Given these issues, it is important for
researchers to reflect on legal and ethical encounters in HCI research as a
community. The GDPR will impact HCI activities and the ones related to HCI
engagement, that result in gathering huge volumes of personal data.

This workshop will provide a forum for researchers to share experiences
about Soft Law they have put in place to increase Trust, Transparency and
Accountability among the shareholders. These discussions will be used to
develop a white paper of practical Soft Law mechanisms (certification,
labeling, marks, seals...) emerging in HCI research with the aim to
demonstrate that the GDPR may be an opportunity for the HCI community.


We invite position papers related to HCI Policy regarding computational
engagement, more specifically topics concerning soft-regulation and design
of privacy / ethically- informed computational systems. Suggested areas
include, but not limited to:

1. HCI Soft Law Regulation
    a. Data protection certification (Labels, Seals and Marks)
    b. Approved Codes of conducts (by Data Protection Supervisory Authority)
2. HCI Responsible Design
3. HCI Responsible Labels (or privacy labels)
4. Community’s Accountability (civil, administrative, criminal)
5. Safeguards
6. Policy-by-Design
    a. Safety and Security-by-Design
    b. Privacy-by-Design
    c. Safeguards-by-Design
    d. Ethics-by-Design

Proposals based on autonomous and self-decision-making agents as well as
proposals involving learning systems are welcome. We also encourage
researchers involved in the control or in the processing of special
categories of data, such as, children or health data to participate in this


The length of the papers should be 4-6 pages. The authors should not
include the ACM CHI copyright statement in their papers. The use of
supplied template is mandatory:

Position papers should be submitted to [log in to unmask]

Submissions should include: title, author(s), affiliation(s),
e-mail address(es), tel/fax number(s), and postal address(es).

All the contributions will be subject to a peer-review by at least three
reviewers from the Program Committee.

The organizers will work for initiating a special issue in ACM transactions
on Computer Human Interaction (ToCHI), where extended versions of the
papers can be considered for publication.

Position Paper Submission:  extended to February 11th, 2018
Notification of acceptance:  February 22nd, 2018
Early Bird Conference Registration: To appear soon
Camera ready paper: April 5th, 2018
Participate in the workshop: April 22nd, 2018
Selected high quality papers: write-up an extended version and submit the
paper on a special issue of ACM Transactions on Computers Human
Interaction (ToCHI, provisional deadline: early 2019)
