*** Overview ***
Our CHI 2019 Workshop will focus on identifying appropriate methods for understanding, sensing, modelling, and adapting mobile technologies to ameliorate the effects of Situationally-induced impairments and disabilities (SIIDs) that make it difficult for users of interactive computing systems to perform tasks due to context (e.g., listening to a phone call when in a noisy crowd, playing a mobile game outside in the sun, replying to a message while carrying shopping) rather than a result of a congenital or acquired impairment (e.g., hearing damage, low vision, motor impairment).
*** Objectives ***
The main objectives of the workshop are to:
(1) provide a shared forum for researchers interested in SIIDs experienced when interacting with mobile devices to share their expertise and insights on SIIDs
(2) identify existing research gaps and new directions for future research
(3) ideate solutions that mitigate the effects of SIIDs when using interactive technology
(4) create and strengthen a collaborative network that will span several continents
To accomplish this, our workshop will include lightning presentations, focus groups activities, a panel discussion, exploring scenarios, a town hall meeting, and an evening dinner.
*** Submission details ***
We are interested in receiving a wide variety of submission types (e.g., short position papers, case studies, empirical studies, descriptions of new mobile systems and identified challenges, new interaction approaches) that fall under several broad topics of interest:
(1) Understanding - studies that help us understand the effects of SIIDs on behavior
(2) Sensing - technologies for detecting people and environments
(3) Modelling - modelling the user or the environment
(4) Adapting - approaches for adapting interfaces using sensed data and models of the user or context to alleviate the effects of SIIDs
*** Submission instructions ***
To apply to the workshop, please submit a paper (MAXIMUM of 8 pages including references in the CHI Extended Abstract format) on (or before) 12 February 2019 to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> with "Workshop submission" as the email subject.
The organizers of the workshop will peer-review the submissions for their significance to the overall workshop themes. Submissions will be judged on their content, not on their number of pages. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).
