- LPLTue. 9amCHI at the Barricades – an Activist Agenda?
Technology plays an increasingly important role in enabling activist agendas, supporting activist activities and self-organization, bringing people together on causes they support and developing tools and platforms to scaffold activist activities. This panel explores both the role of HCI in activism and activism in HCI.
- LRDTue. 2pmIs My Doctor Listening to Me? Impact of Health IT Systems on Patient-Provider Interaction
With the rapid development of information systems in healthcare practices, the traditional within-clinic, face-to-face mode of patient-provider interactions are increasingly facilitated, enriched, and mediated by new types of health technologies. These technologies are designed to bring better access to patient care information, resources, and a variety of communication channels. Yet, the use of these technologies may introduce unintended impacts on both patients and health providers. In this panel, drawing from our recent studies on patient-provider interaction, the panelists will discuss the emerging issues in this field. Specifically, we discuss the impacts of new technologies on synchronous co-located interaction and asynchronous remote interaction, as well as the shifts in patient-provider interaction that will emerge as ubiquitous health technologies becomes more prevalent.
- LFBWed. 11amDigital Arts: Did You Feel That?
This panel considers the relationships between the interactive arts, audience engagement and experience design. What might each offer the other? Engagement and experience are central to current HCI thinking. We will present and argue about the research issues of defining and understanding audience/user engagement and experience in the context of art.
- LUMThu. 2pmThe Future of HCI Publishing in Journals and Books
With the ongoing growth of digital media, academic presses and journals have had to answer some hard questions about the role of publishing in a world of blogs, social media, on-demand video and social networking. In this panel we bring together some of the top editors and publishers in HCI to explore and address these questions in a public forum.
- LJKMon. 2pmWill Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) Change Education?
As has been apparent for the past several months, MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courseware) have emerged as a powerful contender for the next new education technology. Yet the landscape of education technology is littered with the remains of previous technological breakthroughs that have failed to live up to their initial promise, or at least their initial rhetoric. Is anything different this time? We strongly believe the answer is yes—this time really is different. Several MOOCs have been run during 2012 that have taught many thousands of students in a variety of topics. This panel will be a chance to review and discuss the short but engaging history of MOOCs, reviewing data from several MOOC instances, critically assessing what’s happening and why things are different. Are MOOCs really a qualitative change in the way education can be delivered, or is it merely another new wrapper for old content. We believe the human experience of online education is about to change; we should understand the issues behind the phenomena
- LBRTue. 4pmGamification @ Work
Gamification is a buzz word in the businesses these days. Is this just the latest hype, or a meaningful trend worth paying attention to, or a bit of both? Most importantly, what promises or benefits does gamification hold for the enterprise, and what are the challenges or dangers? We will address these questions and more in this interactive panel discussion on “Gamification @ Work”. We have assembled a distinguished and diverse panel of gamification experts who will share industry, academic and vendor perspectives.
- LDJMon. 11amCall All Game Changers: BYOD (Bring Your Own Disruption)
This panel welcomes provocateurs who challenge conventional wisdom, take risks, and want to create new products and services. We are focused on looking at disruptive innovation from various key vantage points: education, cultural shift, social networking, and the corporate landscape. Join us if you want to enlist in a successful culture of disruption, and learn how to influence and propagate change throughout your organization.
- LMTThu. 11amWe Need to Talk: HCI and the Delicate Topic of Spoken Language Interaction
Speech and natural language remain our most natural form of interaction; yet the HCI community have been very timid about focusing their attention on designing and developing spoken language interaction techniques. This may be due to a widespread perception that perfect domain-independent speech recognition is an unattainable goal. Progress is continuously being made in the engineering and science of speech and natural language processing, however, and there is also recent research that suggests that many applications of speech require far less than 100% accuracy to be useful in many contexts. Engaging the CHI community now is timely – many recent commercial applications, especially in the mobile space, are already tapping the increased interest in and need for natural user interfaces (NUIs) by enabling speech interaction in their products. As such, the goal of this panel is to bring together interaction designers, usability researchers, and general HCI practitioners to discuss the opportunities and directions to take in designing more natural interactions based on spoken language, and to look at how we can leverage recent advances in speech processing in order to gain widespread acceptance of speech and natural language interaction.
- LSUWed. 4pmTheory vs. Design-Driven Approaches for Behavior Change Research
Designing and evaluating interactive systems for encouraging health behavior change at time leaves human-computer interaction researcher in a quandary: the methods and user-centered design philosophies favored in HCI can be incompatible with theory-driven approaches favored in healthcare research. The goal of this panel is to open a discussion about these tensions and to explore methods to reconcile them.
- LGSWed. 9amTheory and Practice in UX Research: Uneasy Bedfellows?
We believe that it is time to talk about user experience and its theoretical roots as well as about the relationship between theory and practice in UX research. Although user experience is overused as a buzzword, it defines a main step change in the evolvement of the HCI field and deserves a proper (theoretical) attention. Within this panel we follow up on discussions on the theoretical foundations and the value of theory for HCI and UX research from over the last years. In particular we want to go a step further and strengthen the interdisciplinary dialogue on the relationship between theory and practice when talking about user experience. We invited panelists from academia and industry to join a fruitful dialogue talking about the different perspectives on user experience, theoretical roots, and the relevance of theory for practice and vice versa. Two moderators will ensure that the audience gets their beliefs and thoughts across to the panelists as well.
- LYVWed. 2pmExploring the Representation of Women Perspectives in Technologies
Technology has a profound mediating effect on the way we relate, obtain knowledge, and contribute to society. Given the impact and potential ramifications of technology on our society, it is imperative that both masculine and feminine perspectives are included in shaping our modern day technologies. This panel focuses on the representation of women perspectives in technologies we design, analyze, and use. There are many barriers when it comes to getting women perspectives into system designs such as: the small amount of HCI gender research currently in the literature, the lack of analysis of gender-agnostic software tools which fit female problem-solving approaches, and low grant support for research which looks at the representation of the feminists’ perspective in our current discourse. This panel will address these barriers with respect to the tools and technologies we experience and design.
- LXEMon. 4pmLeveraging the Progress of Women in the HCI Field to Address the Diversity Chasm
Worldwide there is a gender gap in technology with only a small part of all computer science related positions being held by women. Among different initiatives to encourage women to join STEM fields, we started a video interview initiative last year at CHI to encourage more women to enter and remain in the field of HCI as well as strengthening existing women’s voices. In addition to strengthening women’s progress, many interviewees also identified a diversity chasm within the HCI field that needs to be addressed. This panel aims at continuing and deepening the conversation that was started at CHI 2011 addressing the experience of women in the HCI field in both industry and academia and extending the conversation to include diversity. It will serve as a platform to discuss important issues such as mentoring, leadership, and career development and for creating networks for including and encouraging diversity in HCI.
- LLCTue. 11amUX Management: Current and Future Trends
User Experience (UX) leaders and managers are required to continually adapt to changes in: organizational strategies and re-structuring, resources, technology, economic pressures, and other factors. Simultaneously, more companies are realizing that they need UX expertise to ensure that they are competitive in today’s marketplace. This panel is comprised of UX leaders who have created strategies and tactics to succeed both in spite of and with the aid of the past and current trends. The panel will focus on the current trends, what strategies and tactics have and have not worked in addressing these trends, and also discuss which future trends they think will impact UX departments, companies, and the field, and how they are preparing for these future trends. The panel will be of interest to managers, practitioners and those who work closely with these teams, including developers, project managers, market researchers, test managers, and executives.
