WS06: Digital Tools in Collaborative Creative Work

Date: 
Sunday 30 September 2018
Organisers: 
Peter Dalsgaard, Christian Remy, Jonas Frich Pedersen, Lindsay MacDonald Vermeulen, Michael Mose Biskjaer

Location: Informatics building: logo

The aim of this workshop is to examine and discuss the role and functions of digital tools in collaborative creative work. While advancements in human-computer interaction research and technology offer considerable potential for supporting creative work practices, particularly collaborative practices, we believe that this design space is vastly underexplored. We invite researchers from the fields of HCI and creativity research to come together in this workshop to further our understanding of digital tools in collaborative creative practices and explore opportunities for future research in this area. We will discuss workshop participants' visions and experiences in order to identify themes that can shape the future design of digital tools in collaborative creative work.

WS07: Learner-Computer Interaction (Cancelled)

Organisers: 
Michail Giannakos, Kshitij Sharma, Roberto Martinez-Maldonado, Pierre Dillenbourg, Yvonne Rogers

The Workshop of Learner Computer Interaction (LCI) aims to provide an interdisciplinary playground for researchers and professionals across all areas of learning technologies and HCI. Participants from a variety of organizations are invited: learning science, learning analytics, educational psychology, and researchers in interaction, design and digital literacy. LCI aims to develop a critical discussion, debate and co-development of ideas and approaches about the next generation of learning environments and their interaction design capacities; the form of these capacities and the way they can be identified, utilized and enhanced to help us improve the contemporary learning technologies and users' learning experience. The results from the workshop are expected to form a coherent new, high-impact way of understanding and building learner-centered interaction concepts to support the design of future learning environments.

WS08: Circular Thinking in Sustainable HCI: Revisiting the Link Between Invention and Disposal (Cancelled))

Organisers: 
Maja van der Velden, Miquel Ballester, Oliver Bates, Alma Leora Culén, Elina Eriksson, Daniel Pargman
Cancelled

In this workshop we will critically engage with the different aspects, applications, and implications of circularity and ask: Is circularity a principle of sustainable HCI? In order to answer this question, the workshop combines a variety of methods. The starting points for this exploration are the artifacts that the participants will present in a ‘show and tell’ session. These artifacts represent each participant’s work or interest in sustainable HCI, as well as an idea or form of circularity. Through two more exploratory sessions, we will give form and shape to what circular thinking can contribute to sustainable HCI. In the final session of the workshop we will map our findings on the most iconic digital device of our time, the mobile phone. Acknowledging the central role of design in the sustainability of products and services, we will end our workshop with a final question: who and what will benefit from this re-design?

WS09: Critical Robotics - Exploring a New Paradigm

Date: 
Sunday 30 September 2018
Organisers: 
Sara Ljungblad, Sofia Serholt, Tijana Milosevic, Niamh Ni Bhrion, Rikke Toft Nørgaard, Pamela Lindgren, Charles Ess, Wolmet Barendregt, Mohammad Obaid

Location: Informatics building: java

In recent years, we have witnessed a rise in voices advocating more human-centered and holistic approaches in research on robotic technology. Towards this end, the adoption of broader perspectives and the exploration of critical questions related to the design and study of these technologies in everyday life have become increasingly pressing. In this workshop, we aim for researchers and industry experts to experience hands-on approaches to explore how we can address critical human-centered perspectives in robotic research and whether critical questions within the area of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) could be considered a new emerging paradigm: critical robotics. We invite people from a variety of disciplines both inside and outside of HRI and HCI (e.g. media and communication, education, philosophy of technology, applied ethics) to submit a short position paper and join us in an open exploration of this burning topic already identified by the HRI and HCI communities’ leading researchers.

WS10: The Role of Design Fiction in Participatory Design Processes

Date: 
Sunday 30 September 2018
Organisers: 
Sus Lyckvi, Virpi Roto, Elizabeth Buie, Yiying Wu

Location: Informatics building: pascal 

Have you been using design fictions in your participatory design projects and would like to learn more? Or are you someone who creates fictions and is wondering how they can be put to use in a design context? If so, this workshop is for you. We aim to explore if, how, and when in the design process participatory design practices and design fictions can be combined. We are interested in reports and reflections on how to: collect information to base the fiction upon; co-create fictions; use fictions (as a discussion tool, design tool etc.); or evaluate fictions. Together we will create a first overview of the combined Participatory Design / Design Fiction process, including a set of practical examples. Welcome!

WS11: Thinking Outside the (Tool) Box: Empowering People with Toolkits

Date: 
Sunday 30 September 2018
Organisers: 
Pradthana Jarusriboonchai, Janis Lena Meissner, Nicolai Brodersen Hansen, Ben Schouten

Location: Informatics building: perl

Recent trends within the HCI community have called for designing digital technologies that empower users. Several toolkits have been designed and introduced to broad groups of people, promoting DIY-making of interactive artefacts. The HCI community often highlights the novelty of toolkits and their potential to create different creations. However, these are not the only factors for a toolkit to be successful in a community. This one-day workshop offers a space for researchers, designers, and practitioners to share their insights and interests in designing and using DIY/making toolkits in different communities. The overarching goal of the workshop is to identify key challenges and practices that lead to success or failure in using and sustaining toolkits in different communities. During the workshop, we will discuss and highlight uses of toolkits, reflect on of their success and/or failure when deployed in communities, and how we would do differently.

WS12: UX in Agile - Before and During Development

Date: 
Sunday 30 September 2018
Organisers: 
Marta Kristin Larusdottir, Lene Nielsen, Anders Bruun, Lars Bo Larsen, Peter Axel Nielsen, John Stouby Persson

Location: Informatics building: postscript

The objective of this workshop is to provide a venue for researchers and practitioners to discuss and suggest good ways of integrating UX in Agile.We aim to address success stories and best practices. Particularly, we will focus on two periods for the integration: Before the actual agile process starts and during the agile projects. We will focus particularly on these questions: What UX activities work well in each of these phases? When are users involved in the process? What are the main artifacts supporting good UX in each of these phases? What are the challenges experienced while integrating UX during these phases? How is the UX role percieved by other roles? The workshop has two goals: (1) Identifying best practices, case studies and work-in-progress relevant to successes and challenges of integrating UX activities in Agile. (2) Identify and discuss suggestions for good ways of integrating UX activities in Agile.
