-- Call for Submissions: Organisational Overviews - HCI 2000
Submissions should arrive by the 15th of May, 2000.
Notification of acceptance will be by 12th of June, 2000.
Organisational Overviews provide summaries of HCI work taking place in
Overviews may describe HCI work in university, corporate, or government
research groups or institutions; product development or consultancy
countries or geographical regions; collaborative efforts involving several
organisations; or partnerships of different types of groups, or groups
geographical, political, or cultural boundaries.
The emphasis is on the circumstances and context within which this work is
occurring, focusing on the underlying goals, policies, and organisational
and perspectives of past, present and future HCI efforts. Of interest is the
big picture: how
did a group come into being; how do the participants influence each other as
well as other
groups with whom they are affiliated; the group's plans and visions for the
future; and the
basis for these plans.
Organisational Overviews provide a contrast to presentations that spotlight
a restricted number of technically or scientifically interesting results.
Attendees of the presentations should be able to see the shared perspectives
between groups despite different cultural, organisational, and geographical
backgrounds in order to foster future collaborations and affect work within
HCI in the upcoming
Submissions will be reviewed independently by a multidisciplinary group
drawn from industry and academia. Reviews will consider the:
level of interest that members of the HCI community will have in the
extent to which the overview informs the HCI community of current HCI
ways in which future HCI innovations are envisaged
potential of the work for stimulating co-operation and collaboration
within the HCI
