Sustainable HCI in the UK
Workshop at the British HCI 2015 Conference
Lincoln, UK
Contact: [log in to unmask]

This workshop will bring together Sustainable HCI researchers to map the
existing landscape of UK research in this domain, and to highlight
challenges that cut across social, economic, and environmental
sustainability. This mapping will form the basis of a UK research network
to collaborate and share experiences of sustainable HCI research across the
range of domains that fall under this umbrella.

This workshop has three goals:

   - Establish a UK network of Sustainable HCI researchers;
   - Map the landscape of UK Sustainable HCI, emphasising the UK as a
   specific research domain, to identify challenges and opportunities for
   future research,
   - Create the foundation for a long-term community presence in
   Sustainable HCI at the national and international level.

The workshop will be of interest to HCI researchers interested in social,
economic and environmental sustainability challenges, as well as
researchers from other disciplines interested in impacts of technology for
sustainability, or digital interventions for sustainability.

We invite two submission types:

   - 2-4 page position papers in CHI ACM Extended Abstract Format
   Sustainable HCI research to the UK context, and/or mapping challenges or
   opportunities for Sustainable HCI in the UK
   - 1-paragraph expressions of interest presenting a brief biography and
   sustainable HCI research interests.

Accepted position papers will be published on the workshop website, and
authors will be allotted a short time slot to present their position during
the workshop. The majority of the workshop will consist of group breakout
discussion sessions designed to map research domains, challenges and
approaches. This mapping will be consolidated post-workshop by participants
and prepared for publication in an appropriate venue.

Please direct queries and submissions to Adrian Clear (

At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the
Important Dates:
