2nd CFP: *HCI and New Media: Methodology and Evaluation*
April 28, 2007 : CHI 2007, San Jose, CA

Workshop Website:

Practice and research in art and science today requires great
attention to context as well as deep, exhaustive investigation.
Through increasing demand for work that is both rigorously
disciplinary and responsive to conditions outside of the discipline,
art and science practitioners continue to search for innovative

This workshop will focus on three areas in HCI/New Media collaboration:
** Contributions to Evaluation and Methodology **
What methods are amenable to cross-disciplinary application? Where do
practices within HCI or New Media stand most in need of influence from
the other field's methods, and where do incompatibilities lie?

** Informing Reflective Practice **
What features of disciplinary practice are brought into relief through
HCI/New Media collaboration? What techniques are appropriate when
studying HCI/New Media collaborations? What kinds of research findings
or innovations in practice do these collaborations promote?

** Identifying Critical Issues in Collaboration **
How do HCI/New Media collaborations deal with institutional
constraints, like Institutional Review Boards. Can the diverse goals
and expectations of collaborators be satisfied effectively?

Our intended audience includes researchers in HCI, industry experts
and designers practiced in art/science collaboration and New Media
artists whose work incorporates interaction.

Individuals interested in participating should submit a position
paper, 2-4 pages in length. Participant position papers should either
(i) situate the participants' interests and background among the
themes of the workshop, or (ii) report on preliminary research
findings or case studies in HCI/New Media collaboration.

Papers should conform to the CHI 2007 Extended Abstracts format
(http://www.chi2007.org/submit/eaformat.php). To participate, one
author is required to register for the workshop and one day of CHI
