ORGANIZATION AND WORKSHOP SCHEDULE
 

Before the workshop potential participants submit one of: 4 page position paper, 2 page position paper + poster, or proposal for a demonstration, related to their own experiences with workshop issues, themes and goals. Authors are to include a working definition of how the term “embodiment” is used as a foundation for their own work. Participants are expected to read all other accepted submissions prior to the workshop.


At the workshop: The one day workshop is split into four sections. In the first section of the morning we will have CHI Madness style introductions. The second section of the workshop will be a keynote talk by Dr. David Kirsh (UCSD). After a group lunch, we will have the third section, which includes discursive break-out sessions in smaller groups. Topics will include: Perspectives on Embodied Interaction; Design and Evaluation for Embodied Interaction; and Future Research. The day will conclude with interactivity demonstrations that enable different kinds of embodied interaction. As we conclude the workshop, we will collectively summarizing the different perspectives and ideas we had during the day.

After the workshop: Workshop participants will be invited to submit longer versions of their work to an open call for papers for a special issue of ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (ToCHI) that will be edited by Drs. Antle, Marshall and van den Hoven and will include a guest editorial by Prof. Paul Dourish.
