Workshop on new sociotechnical insights in interaction design

(September 10-11, 2007) in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

http://iit.tvu.ac.uk/sociotech-id07 <http://iit.tvu.ac.uk/sociotech-id07>

held in conjunction with the 11th IFIP TC 13 International Conference on
Human-Computer Interaction Interact'2007


Aims and goals of the workshop

Diverse areas of the social sciences explore and conceptualize the
relation between people, society and technology under the rubric of
'sociotechnical', which can bring interesting insights into
interaction design. While organizational studies of technology
adoption have a well defined conceptual framework known as
sociotechnical systems theory with established principles, the
situation is not the same for interaction design research. The latter
includes examples that give diverse uses to the term 'sociotechnical'
when involving social methods and theories. While perspectives like
ethnography, ethnomethodology and activity theory have had a clear
impact in the design of interactive systems, the potential
contribution of other social science perspectives has not become so
clear and uniform despite the increased development of the pervasive
and social proxy - mediating and mediated -- characters of
interactive systems.

This workshop will bring together good examples of research in
interaction design that refer to the term 'sociotechnical'. The
challenge is to achieve some level of 'translation' despite
differences between disciplines whose main interest is under-standing
social phenomena and disciplines whose main interest is the design of
interactive systems. It is hoped the workshop will identify
opportunities for a socio-technical knowledge framework in interaction design.

Submissions are welcome in, but are not limited to, the following
topics: actionable recommendations and guidelines for the conception,
design and evaluation of interactive systems as 'social proxies';
improved methods for the gathering and elicitation of sociotechnical
requirements; identifying socially responsible policies for
interaction design; understanding participatory design as a
sociotechnical endeavor involving multidisciplinary teams in the
context of novel development methodologies such as Agile.


The following types of submission are solicited: long paper
submissions of up to 5,000 words, describing substantial
contributions of novel ongoing work; short paper submissions of up to
2,000 words, describing work in progress. All papers must be written
and presented in English and will be peer reviewed by at least 2 reviewers.

Submissions will be evaluated according to the relevance and
originality of the work and to their ability to generate discussions
between the participants of the workshop. The format of submitted
papers must follow the Springer LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer
Science) format
including no page numbers. Submitted papers must be in PDF or Word
for Windows format. Papers should be submitted to

         Subject: Call for Bids: TEI Members Meeting, Fall 2008.

Call for Bids: TEI Members Meeting, 2008
Deadline: August 1, 2008

The annual TEI Members' Meeting takes place every year in October or
November. We are now seeking bids to host this event in 2008.

The meeting this year (2007) will take place on October 31-November 3 at
the University of Maryland in College Park, MD (USA). The previous
meetings have been:

        * Victoria, Canada, October 27-28, 2006. Hosted by the University
          of Victoria.
        * Sophia, Bulgaria, October 28-29, 2005. Hosted by the Bulgarian
          Academy of Sciences.
        * Baltimore, USA, October 22-23, 2004. Hosted by Johns Hopkins
        * Nancy, France, November 7-8 2003. Hosted by ATILF.
        * Chicago, USA, October 11-12 2002. Hosted by the Newberry Library
        * Northwestern University.
        * Pisa, Italy, November 16-17 2001. Hosted by the University of

The site of the meeting has typically alternated between Europe and
North America, but that is not a fixed rule. We welcome proposals from
other parts of the world, and in particular from areas where new TEI
communities are arising.

This year's meeting will be a three-day event, with approximately 70-100
attendees. The first and second day will involve plenary lectures by
invited speakers, round-table discussions, and conference-style session.
The third day will be a closed session, restricted to TEI members and
subscribers only, which includes reports on the TEI's work and the
annual elections for the TEI Board and Council. Meetings of TEI Special
Interest Groups (SIGs) are also scheduled for this day. Future meetings
should assume roughly this shape, although there is considerable room
for local initiative in consultation with the Board.

The TEI Consortium covers the direct costs in connection with the
meeting. As the TEI is an organisation with limited financial resources,
and any contribution from the host is very welcome.

Bids should be sent to info_at_tei-c.org by August 1, 2008, and should
include the following information:
        * The name of the institution(s) making the bid
        * The name, address, email, and telephone number of the contact
        * A brief description of the facilities available for the event
          (rooms, equipment, technical support, food)
        * An indication of what financial support, if any, the hosting
          institution is prepared to give (for instance, sponsoring one or
          more receptions or pre-meeting workshops; payment of travel
          expenses for one or more plenary speakers; etc.)
        * Any other details that may be useful in assessing the bid (e.g.
          the presence of a conference on a related topic at the
          institution around the time of the meeting; the launch of a new
          TEI-related initiative at the institution, etc.).

All bids will be reviewed by the TEI board, which makes the final

Thank you very much!
