INTERACT Workshops provide a one-day or two-day forum for participants to compare their experiences and explore research issues or topics of special interest to the HCI community.

Workshops should have specific objectives and address stimulating topics. See for example workshops in INTERACT 2017 (, INTERACT 2015 (, and INTERACT 2013 ( Workshop organisers will get an opportunity to present a summary of outcomes in a session during the conference.

The proposed format of the workshop should be innovative and interesting. Following are some examples of what may happen in workshops:

  • A traditional workshop with paper presentations, followed by forum discussions and a shared poster for presentation during the conference (please innovate this)
  • An interactive event, where participants work together on experimenting with or evaluating an artifact, and  make a 360 degree video of the design or evaluation work highlights for presentation during the conference
  • A design workshop with focus on artefacts, with a gallery / showroom exhibition during the conference

Other, innovative formats of the workshop will also be of interest. Workshops should have a min and max number of participants (6 min up to 30 max). Workshops that don’t reach the minimum number of participants are subject to cancellation.

A free registration is granted to one of the workshop organizers if more than 8 participants are duly registered to the workshop.

Workshops will take place on 2 and 3 September 2019, immediately preceding the main conference.
