Dear Colleagues,

This CHI 2020 workshop may interest you -


IslamicHCI: Designing with and within Muslim Populations
CHI 2020 Workshop on 25 or 26 April 2020 in Hawaii, USA


There has been a growing body of work from the CHI community that looks at
designing for inclusivity and for the unique and specific constraints of
diverse populations including work on designing within patriarchal
contexts, designing around issues of gender and sexual orientation and
designing around literacy. With the same approach towards inclusivity and
co-existence, the aim of this workshop is to bring together CHI researchers
and practitioners who engage in studies and interventions within Muslim
majority communities around the world. The goal is to understand the Muslim
identity and perceptions around it, the unique constraints and limitations
within Muslim communities and to identify core issues and concerns within
these populations. We hope to generate a dialogue to explore the
opportunities and challenges of doing HCI research within Muslim

We particularly encourage submissions under the following themes, but we
