This workshop on pilot implementation will take place preceding INTERACT2021, in Bari, Italy, on 31 August 2021. Online attendance will also be allowed.

This workshop on pilot implementation has three main objectives:
        • To help mature pilot implementation as a technique for evaluating human-work interaction designs during the process of their development and implementation.
        • To collect case studies that analyze experiences – good and bad – with conducting and learning from pilot implementations.
        • To formulate a research agenda for future work on pilot implementations – addressing their strengths, limitations, conduct, impact, and so forth.

Pilot implementations are field tests of properly engineered, yet unfinished, systems. In contrast to lab tests, the users in a pilot implementation use the system for performing real work. In contrast to full-scale implementations, the objective of a pilot implementation is to learn. The workshop on pilot implementation aims to (a) help mature this technique for evaluating human-work interaction designs during the process of their development and implementation, (b) collect case studies that analyze experiences with conducting and learning from pilot implementations, and (c) formulate a research agenda for future work on pilot implementations – addressing their strengths, limitations, conduct, impact, and so forth. The target audience for the workshop is researchers and practitioners working on topics related to work analysis, interaction design, system-organization fit, organizational implementation, benefits realization, and in-the-wild evaluation. The relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
•       Sociotechnical aspects of user experiences in pilot implementation
•       Pilot implementation of digital twins system
•       Pilot implementation in virtual reality
•       Pilot implementation and issues of legacy systems and interoperability
•       Organizational alignment with pilot implementation
•       Making sense of pilot implementation testing data with information visualisation
•       End-User Development in pilot implementation
•       Cognitive breakdowns in remote pilot implementation tests

Please submit your position paper of four pages in the INTERACT 2021 proceedings format to any of the organizers, or to [log in to unmask], no later than June1st 2021 (subject to change). Notification of acceptance will happen before INTERACT2021 early bird registration deadline. Each submission will be reviewed by two reviewers from the larger HWID community. Participation in the workshop requires an accepted position paper.
