**********************************************************************************************
Call for Papers/Participation - ACE'14 Workshop on "Designing Systems for
Health and Entertainment: what are we missing?"
**********************************************************************************************
In conjunction with ACE 2014: *http://www.ace2014.info/
<http://www.ace2014.info/>*
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 in Madeira, Portugal
More info: *http://designingsystemsforhealthandentertainment.wordpress.com/

DESCRIPTION:
Systems that aggregate health and entertainment goals are proliferating,
but little is known about the way to design and evaluate these systems and
how to manage the different (if nor opposite) needs of these two main
areas. This workshop will promote the discussion of issues surrounding
these areas, enabling a better understanding of the how’s and why’s of
designing systems for health and entertainment, as well as the
identification of new avenues of research in the field.
Therefore we invite designers, researchers and practitioners to participate
in an exciting full-day workshop where they are invited to share their
personal views and research on the intersection of technology, health and
entertainment.

TOPICS OF INTEREST:
Participants are invited to submit a short paper (2-4 pages in ACM SIGCHI
format) presenting their personal views and research on the intersection of
technology, health and entertainment. Possible contributions may include
but are not limited to:

- Health and entertainment systems
- Studies on the effectiveness, and acceptance of health and entertainment
systems and their impact on health and wellbeing
- Methodologies and frameworks for the design, development, and evaluation
of health and entertainment systems
- Design principles and guidelines for special user populations and
specific diseases
- Insights on how to leverage these systems to the medical care and attract
health professionals into the design and development of these systems

The workshop welcomes participants who have not submitted papers but wish
to actively contribute to the discussion of the challenges. These
participants should state and justify their interest through the email
bellow.

Contributions and statements of interest should be sent to
*[log in to unmask]
<[log in to unmask]>* until September 19.
