Workshop CHI2006 - Call For Papers

Investigating new user experience
challenges in iTV: mobility & sociability

Position papers are invited on the design of future interactive television 
(iTV) scenarios characterized by pervasive communications in contexts of 
entertainment, work and government, with special attention to the social 
character of these applications and the implications for interface design.

The workshop will include thematically organized moderated group 

Submissions are invited on the following topics:

    * unfolding experimental research methodologies to understand user-
experience in future pervasive communication scenarios;
    * sharing a roadmap of feasible scenarios and representative 
applications for ubi-iTV;
    * exploring the potential of novel interfaces within pervasive 
communication scenarios for entertainment, work and government;
    * accounts of the particular challenges of studying and designing for 
sociability in social electronic media
    * understanding and supporting sociability in social electronic media
    * evaluating sociability

This one-day workshop wants to address these issues by bringing together 
practitioners and researchers from different domains, but with the same 
concern for social interfaces on pervasive interactive television.

We will select participants with diverse backgrounds based upon the 
relevance, insightfulness, and originality of their submissions.

Submissions are expected in the form of 2-4 pages position papers, 
describing the area of research, specific work (empirical or theoretical) 
on the workshop topic and the innovative character of the research at hand.

Submissions (in Conference Proceedings Publication Format) can be uploaded 
on the website:


    * Deadline for submissions: 23 December 2005
    * Feedback to authors: 15 January 2006
    * Workshop at CHI2006: 22 April 2006
