and Opportunities for Qualitative Data Research Methods in HCI

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the HCI community 
who have adapted qualitative research methods to inform design decisions.

Submission deadline: *31st May 2018, 11pm (UK time) *

Paper format: up to 4 pages excluding references (eWiC format) -

Workshop Details

Part 1

In the first part of the workshop, participants will have the 
opportunity to share case studies in which they used different 
approaches to analyse qualitative data that has implications for design 
and, in particular, how they adapted existing qualitative data analysis 
approaches to support them in moving from data to design.

In particular, this workshop will focus on adaptations of:


    Thematic Analysis


    Grounded Theory


    Activity Theory.

Part 2

In the second part, participants will work in groups to discuss in more 
depth the rationale for adapting their chosen method(s) and how they 
overcame challenges associated with applying each approach for informing 
design in the context of their research.

This workshop is an opportunity, for researchers and practitioners 
alike, to share and discuss work, ideas and challenges revolving around 
rigorous data collection, analysis and design-specific outcomes. After 
the workshop, attendees will be given the opportunity to contribute to a 
journal paper on the theme of moving from qualitative data to design 
insight. This would entail further collaborative work and additional 
writing up following a prescribed structure.

*Submissions: *

We invite participants to submit a 2-4 pages position paper in the eWiC 
format explaining some example research where they have applied QDA 
techniques to inform design, how they did so, the challenges they faced 
and how they overcame (or tried to overcome) them. Position papers 
should be submitted using EasyChair by clicking on the following
