Personal Informatics & HCI: Design, Theory, and Social Implications

May 7, 2011, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Organizers:
Ian Li, Carnegie Mellon University
Anind Dey, Carnegie Mellon University
Jodi Forlizzi, Carnegie Mellon University
Kristina Höök, Stockholm University
Yevgeniy Medynskiy, Georgia Institute of Technology

Workshop website: http://www.personalinformatics.org/chi2011/

Personal informatics is a class of systems that help people understand their behaviors, habits, and thoughts. Developing such systems poses new challenges in human-computer interaction and creates opportunities for collaboration between diverse disciplines, including design, ubiquitous computing, persuasive technology and information visualization. This workshop will continue the conversation from the CHI 2010 workshop and extend the discussion of personal informatics to include behavioral theories that can guide the development of such systems, as well as the social implications of self-tracking.

The workshop will be organized in three major areas:
* Challenges in developing personal informatics systems.
* Behavioral theories to guide the development of personal informatics systems, such as self-regulation and goal setting.
* Social implications of self-tracking.

We invite technologists, designers, and behavioral scientists working on topics related to personal informatics. Submit a position paper (2 to 4 pages) in the ACM Extended Abstracts format about your ongoing work, recent results, study methods, or perspectives on personal informatics. Papers will be peer-reviewed and 15-20 will be selected by relevance and likelihood of stimulating and contributing to this discussion. Email your paper in PDF format to [log in to unmask] with subject "CHI 2011 Workshop Submission" by January 14, 2011.

Important Dates
* Papers Due: January 14, 2011
* Notification: February 11, 2011
* Workshop: May 7, 2011

Thanks,
Ian
