Date: 23 October 2016
Location: NordiCHI 2016, Gothenburg, Sweden
Website: Clothesline HCI
Deadline for submissions: 25 August 2016

Are you aware of some dirty, problematic, or maybe simply boring notions that are hindering HCI to reach its full potential to design successful solutions for people? Roll up your sleeves and join us in washing, tumbling and sorting old strange notions, from the successful, high-quality, modern ones that HCI really needs!

We invite researchers and practitioners to bring a plurality of perspectives related to the use of notions in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). 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 clothesline 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) identifying why certain notions are or have been problematic, 2) elaborating 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 elucidate how notions and their connotations frame the HCI practice.

The aim of the workshop is to contribute insight on how notions may reframe and recreate HCI practice, while also providing an overview of norms and notions. The main outcome of the workshop will be summarized into a co-authored workshop report/publication. The intended learning outcomes for the workshop include raised awareness of:

  • The importance of the use of different vocabularies and notions used in a HCI process  (cultural, meaning, professional, discriminating)
  • Problematic notions associated to HCI and the effects that they can have on the design process.
  • How societal drivers create a need for an evolution of notions related to HCI
  • How notions affect power relations between different stakeholders, and the legitimacy by which they can participate in decision making etc.
  • Opportunities for collaboration and exchange between different fields and practitioners
  • A methodological approach to identify, disseminate and encourage alternative notions in a design process
  • The value and dangers of stereotyping, simplification, categorization, and distance creation in design

We invite submissions of positions papers as 2-4 pages PDF documents following the SIGCHI template. Submissions need to address the main topic of the workshop.

Organizers: Eva Eriksson, Viktor Hiort, Martina Keitsch, Kalle Klockars, Sara Ljungblad, Iréne Stewart Claesson, and Olof Torgersson
