CAN 2016 - The Clothesline Approach to Notions that concerns the H in HCI
Topics/Call fo Papers
We invite researchers and practitioners to bring a plurality of perspectives and expertise related to the use of problematic notions in Human-Computer Interaction. How could a change of notions affect our perspective on designing technology for people? The aim of the full day workshop is to apply a cloth line approach in order to identify and sort, wash and tumble, some of the notions used in the community, and air them for better alternatives. We will do this by 1) critically identifying why certain notions are or have been problematic, 2) elaborating on them to raise awareness of their possible interpretations and implications in order to find alternatives that are usable across different HCI settings. The outcome of the workshop is to contribute to elucidate how notions and their connotations frame HCI practice.
