Accepted Workshops

The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction. Workshops are held the weekend before the start of the conference, on Saturday and Sunday, 25-26 April 2020. Workshops are a gathering place for attendees with shared interests to meet in the context of a focused and interactive discussion. They are a great way to discuss emerging and important topics with leaders in the field and a great place to connect with people working in similar areas.

Workshops are organized independently by people from academy and industry. Submission information can be found on the websites of the workshops.

We encourage everyone participating in CHI 2020 to consider attending workshops.

W29: Where Art Meets Technology: Integrating Tangible and Intelligent Tools in Creative Processes

Workshop/Symposia Website

Art and design are an essential aspect of our culture and how we interact with the world. Artists and designers use a wide selection of tools, which, with the progression of digital technologies is rapidly growing. This change has opened up new opportunities for the CHI community to build creative supportive tools for this group. The digital switch has come with many benefits such as lowering barriers, mobile work environments and mass production for distribution of work. Along with these benefits we also see challenges of how art and design processes work and its future perception in society. As technology takes a more significant role in supporting art and design what will this mean for the individual artist or designer? The focus of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to explore what the future of digital art and design will hold. The exploration will centre around synthesizing key challenges and questions, along with ideas for future interaction technologies that consider mobile and tangible aspects of digital art.

W39: Envisioning Future Productivity for Immersive Analytics (rooftop garden)

Workshop/Symposia Website

Immersive technologies have opened many opportunities for the visual analytics and visualisation community. However, despite an emerging focus on immersive analytics research, there is currently a lack of coherent and broadly applicable visualisation and interaction design in order to make immersive analytics systems productive and usable in real world scenarios. In this workshop, we propose to identify a road-map towards productive user interfaces for immersive analytics. In particular we aim to understand how we can effectively support specific visualisation and analytics tasks in VR/AR, and identify the interactions needed to support these. Our goal is to catalyse the research community and lead toward a reference paper to inform future research.
