This one-day workshop aims to bring together a diverse community of 
researchers and practitioners working on human-centred approaches to 
understanding movement-based interaction and design of technology to 
support this form of interaction. We invite submissions that focus on 
theoretical, methodological and empirical (design oriented) aspects of 
movement-based interaction addressing questions including, but not limited to:
- Philosophical approaches. Which concepts of, or from, philosophy 
could/should movement-based interaction be based on?
- Embodiment. What would an emphasis on human activities as embodied 
activities, contribute to HCI in general and more specifically to 
movement-based interaction?
- User purpose/need. What kinds of applications could be more appropriate 
for movement-based interaction?
- Agency. What are the implications for human agency in movement-based 
- Human Movement. What kinds of understandings of human movement can 
provide useful perspectives for interaction design?
- Representations and Design. How can well-informed approaches to 
representations of human movements be incorporated into interaction design?
- Ethics. What are the potential ethical implications of movement-based 
- Space and place. In what ways are different understandings of space and 
place relevant for interaction design for movement-based interaction?

We invite participation from a range of domains (from art to 
rehabilitation) that are either informed by or that could inform discussion 
on the proposed topic.

A call for submissions to a special issue of Personal and Ubiquitous 
Computing on movement-based interaction will be announced prior to the 
workshop. Participants may wish to submit their revised papers to this 
publication. The deadline for the special issue is November 26th, 2005.

Position papers should address the workshop theme, e.g. through one or more 
of the questions above, or a related topic. Position papers should be 
between 2 and 5 pages and formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI conference 
publication format, available at
