[ecrea] CHI 2018 workshop: Reshaping Touch Communication

Wed Jan 10 21:58:21 GMT 2018

Submissions are invited for “Reshaping Touch Communication: An Interdisciplinary Research Agenda”. This one-day workshop brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and designers to examine new forms of touch communication enabled by digital touch technologies, address critical questions and challenges for HCI, reshape future research agendas, and build a cross disciplinary community that fosters subsequent collaboration.

Through group discussion the workshop will explore three key themes: touch and sensory embodiment; affective communication; and ethical and methodological challenges in HCI design to explore digital touch in different contexts (e.g. health, wellbeing, personal relationships, work and leisure). It will provide opportunities to share ongoing work, with a view towards setting an interdisciplinary research agenda for digital touch communication that effectively integrates technology progression with robust interrogation of societal implications of digital touch.
