Call for Workshop Proposals
We invite you to submit a proposal for a co-located workshop on a topic of interest to HCI attendees. We are particularly interested in receiving proposals aligned with this year’s conference topic of “Fusion! HCI across Disciplines.”
Proposal must contain the following sections:
- Abstract: 200 word summary of the workshop purpose and objectives
- Motivation: Why is the topic timely and of particular interest to HCI participants? (one to three paragraphs)
- Topics: What topics of interest will be covered by the workshop? (bulleted list, no longer than half a page)
- Workshop Format: The intended mix of events, such as paper presentations, invited talks, and general discussion (either a tabular schedule or a one paragraph summary)
- Audience: Who and how many people are likely to attend? (one paragraph)
- [Optional] Alternative publication strategy should organisers not wish to publish their papers in the conference workshop proceedings.
- Chair(s): Name, affiliation, email address, homepage and short (one paragraph) biography of each chair, explaining their expertise for the workshop
The decision on acceptance or rejection of a workshop proposal will be made on the basis of the overall quality of the proposal and its appeal to a reasonable fraction of the HCI community. This will be reviewed by a jury of experts who will assess the proposal based on the following criteria:
- The topic falls in the general scope of British HCI 2016.
- There is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application.
- There is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic
Accepted workshop papers will be included in conference proceedings and published in the BCS e-WIC repository and in the ACM Digital Library.
