CfP CHI2017 Workshop: Values in Computing
 
http://www.valuesincomputing.org/
****************************************
 
ABSTRACT
Whether it is in the form of software, system architecture or interface design, anything digital is inevitably affected by values: the organizational values of the project sponsor, the values of the research partners, and the values of each developer and designer. Some values (e.g. commercial success, academic prestige) are easier to quantify than others (e.g. social justice, care for the environment) with the latter often dismissed in decision making  processes as lacking of measurable ‘evidence’. However, less easy to measure values are not less real: they are simply less visible. The aim of this one-day workshop is precisely to investigate mechanisms which give more exposure to those values in computing that are less frequently considered.

SUBMISSIONS
We welcome submissions which engage with the workshop topic and can take one of the following forms:
* Position papers that discuss the roles of values in software and interfaces, or their designing processes
* Case studies in which authors retrospectively reflect on the values as the driving decision making
* Surveys of the values-profile within the authors own institutions on the basis of the survey used by the organizers (made available on the website)
 
FORMAT & DATES
Submissions should not exceed 4 pages (ACM Extended Abstract format, excluding raw data tables).
There are *two* rounds of acceptance:
*Early deadline:  19 Dec (notification 21 Dec)  
*Final deadline: 17 Feb 2017 (12pm PDT, notification 24 Feb) 
*The workshop will be held on Sunday 7th May 2017
 
The early deadline is designed to enable participants to draw on 2016 budgets, if necessary.
Submissions to the early deadline should include a short statement in the email explaining the case.
All submissions should be sent via email to [log in to unmask] 
 
At least one author of an accepted submission is required to attend the workshop, and participants must register for both the workshop and at least one day of the main conference.
 
Many thanks and best wishes
