Call for British HCI 2016 Workshop Papers 

Design Principles of Augmented Reality focusing on the Ageing Population

Augmented Reality (AR) is becoming a mature and robust technology, which combines virtual information with the real environment and real-time performance. Research priorities have shifted from tackling hardware and software issues toward the design of AR effectiveness and usefulness. With the growing ageing population, evidence shows potential trends for AR systems to support the elderly, including transport, home activities, entertainment and training. However, there is a lack of research to provide frameworks to support designers when developing AR applications for specific populations – in this case the ageing population. In this workshop, we intend to explore AR design principles in this challenging and relevant area.

Submissions are invited focusing upon relevant topics including, but not limited to: 
•	design challenges for AR applications;
•	ageing population requirements and engagement with technology;
•	design issues relating to the ageing population;
•	the value of AR design principles and guidelines.

Position papers addressing the theme of the workshop are welcome. They are required to be between 2-4 pages camera ready in the eWiC format and submitted to EasyChair ( Deadline: 23rd May 2016. 

Submissions will be reviewed and accepted papers will appear as part of the British HCI Conference 2016 proceedings.
