Dear CHI community member,

We would like to kindly remind you that the submission deadline for the
Values in Design at Interact 2011 workshop is coming up on *Friday, 10th of
June*. Please see the final call for papers in the following:

==============================FINAL CALL FOR
1st International Workshop on Values in Design - Building Bridges between
RE, HCI & Ethics
held in conjunction with INTERACT 2011, 13th IFIP TC13 Conference on
Human-Computer Interaction.6th of September, Lisbon, Portugal

*Submissions are due 10 June 2011*

In working with stakeholder requirements or user needs in design, various
design methods in requirements engineering and human computer interaction,
in specific user-centred and value sensitive design,  are finding ways to
deal with “soft issues”, “social issues”, “people issues” or values. At the
same time, applied ethics has begun to pay attention to design. We believe
that many of the approaches could complement each other in useful ways. The
aim of this workshop is to bring together people from different disciplines
to share knowledge and insights about how to account for values in
technology design, and to work towards integrating approaches.

The main theme is the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge, experiences
and new ideas on values in technology design. The following list reflects
(but is not limited to these) possible topics:
- Designing for specific values (e.g. privacy, sustainability, trust,
- Experiences from value-oriented projects
- Value Sensitive Design (VSD)
- Value considerations in industry projects or product development
- Understanding and relating different notions of values
- Integrating value-oriented methods with software engineering/ design
- Accounting for values in experience oriented designs, e.g. “fun” as a
- Values used in evaluations of User Experience (UX)
- Dealing with soft issues, social issues, and people issues in requirements
- Value-based requirements engineering
- Value elicitation & value tensions: dealing with a variety of stakeholder
- Value elicitation: methods from different research fields
- (Digital) Tools for value elicitation
- Personal Informatics and values
- Capturing and reusing value knowledge (scenarios, design patterns, etc.)
- Values in Persuasive Technology and/or Ambient Intelligence
- Values in specific domains (health care, military, crisis management)
- Values in Intelligent Systems (e.g. for decision support or automated

This is a one-day workshop divided into two parts. In the first half we will
have four consecutive panel sessions: the values turn in design - “soft
issues” in RE and UCD; the design turn in applied ethics; values across
disciplines; and values in industry. Panels will be led by representatives
in the respective field. Each panel will be initiated by short presentations
by authors of accepted papers followed by a discussion with all workshop
participants. In the second part, we will create groups of 4-5 participants
with different backgrounds (RE, HCI and Ethics).  Each group will be given a
design case to work on using tools and methods proposed by the participants.
The aim will be to create an overview of people issues, values, soft issues
and (long term) social aspects emerging from each design case. In a
debriefing session we will share experiences (regarding the cases and tools
used) from the group work with all participants. Participants who wish to
present their work as posters or demos will be given the opportunity to do
so during the breaks.

We invite technologists, designers, and ethicists working on topics related
to values in technology design to submit original papers of the following

- research papers describing recent results, user studies, study methods or
ongoing work
- statements of interests or position papers describing novel ideas or
- papers describing novel systems, design cases or case studies from
industry or academia

All papers should represent original and previously unpublished work
currently not under review in any conference or journal. Papers will be
peer-reviewed and will be selected by relevance and likelihood of
stimulating and contributing to a discussion related to the workshop theme.
All submissions must follow the Springer Lecture Notes template for
Microsoft Word<>(.doc
files only). The maximum paper length is 8 pages, but shorter position
papers are also welcome. Submit your paper electronically in PDF format to:

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented
at the workshop. In agreement with the authors papers can be presented as
short presentations during panel sessions, or as posters or demos whichever
suits the content of the paper most.

Papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. A selection of
accepted papers will be considered for publication in the Ethics and
Information Technology
