> =======================CALL FOR PARTICIPATION =======================
> Workshop on Methods to Account for Values in Human-Centered Computing
> held in conjunction with CHI 2012
> Workshop website: http://mmi.tudelft.nl/ValuesInDesign/
> ================
> Position paper submission: January 3rd, 2012
> Notification: February 10th, 2012
> Workshop at CHI: May 5th or 6th, 2012
> ==============
> The overarching theme of this workshop focuses on methods to account
> for human values in information technology design. Participants will
> examine the current state of the art in methods for accounting for
> values in human-centered computing; analyze and document the benefits
> and drawbacks of current practices; and explore the factors that
> structure the incorporation of values of all types into the design
> process; and analyze and document the benefits and drawbacks of
> current practice. The workshop will focus on how established and
> emerging methods can be applied in different stages of human-centered
> design and combined with other design strategies. Moreover, the
> workshop aims to move beyond established methodological approaches,
> creating new methods and tools that will assist designers in the real
> world to more effectively design for human values. The workshop
> encourages participation from researchers from fields including, among
> others, human-computer interaction, user-centered design, requirements
> engineering, and applied ethics, as well as from practitioners working
> on user experience design (management) and related activities.
> Chief among the workshop’s aims is the interdisciplinary exchange of
> knowledge, experiences and new ideas on methods to account for values
> in technology design. The following list reflects (but is not limited
> to these) possible topics:
> * Methods for value elicitation; dealing with emerging technologies;
> communicating values; implementing values in design; engaging in
> trade-offs among values; and evaluating technology in terms of values
> * Combining methods; engaging with methods from the social and human sciences
> * Frameworks describing the context under which certain methods are
> most useful; ease of use and agility of methods; case studies and
> research results
> * Best practices for transferring design methods from the academic
> research context to industry
> =============================
> We invite technologists, designers, and ethicists working on topics
> related to value-focused technology design to submit 2-4 page position
> papers (in CHI Extended Abstract format:
> http://chi2012.acm.org/cfp-formatting-instructions.shtml#extendedformat
> ) outlining their research on values-focused or related methods and
> the reasons for their interest in the workshop.
> Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be
> presented at the workshop. If there are many submissions, workshop
> participation will be limited to one person per paper. Position
> statements will be presented as two minute elevator pitch
> presentations during the morning session. Submissions to the workshop
> should be sent to Christian Detweiler ( c.a.detweiler at tudelft.nl).
> Papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. A selection of
> accepted papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of the
> the journal Ethics and Information Technology.
