Call for Participation
The study of Complex Dynamical Systems is a topic of growing importance across human centred disciplines, from economics and sociology to psychology and healthcare. The theories and methods of Complexity Science are driving significant progress in the understanding of a wide range of phenomena in which relationships and interactions between components are important. The goal of this workshop is to begin a discussion on the contribution these techniques can make in HCI, both methodological and theoretical.
Potential participants should submit a position paper in the current ACM CHI Format (word template, latex template, overleaf), that addresses at least one of the key topic(s)of the workshop. Submission format is flexible: papers should be c 3 to 8 page long (including references). Most papers should tend towards the lower end of this, and the upper limit is set to accommodate papers which rely on images, diagrams and tables. The paper should also include a statement on the potential goals of their research and the problem(s) it aims to address. We value exploratory contributions and contributions which can help frame discussion on the day. Papers may, for example define a problem, summarize a result or method, or outline a way forward. Please read our workshop proposal paper (above) for more information. Submission will be via EasyChair, with information on this provided soon. contact email@example.com for more information.
We will select papers based on relevance, quality, and diversity. At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop and all participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the conference.
