Sustainability is by now a well established topic at the CHI conference, but not yet at NordiCHI. Be part of creating the vision at the inaugural Sustainable HCI NordiCHI workshop!
WS9: Making Places: Visualization, Interaction and Experience in Urban Space
Michael Smyth, Edinburgh Napier University; Paula Trigueiros, FEUP; Ingi Helgason, Edinburgh Napier University; António Coelho, FEUP / INESC TEC; Sarah Gallacher, University College London; Alison Burrows, SPHERE IRC; Filipa Wunderlich, University College London; Rui Penha, FEUP
Urban space is a fertile area for cross-disciplinary research. In the context of future cities, visualizations are the tangible outcomes of systems, while interaction design enables citizens to engage with urban data.
WS10: Aesthetics, Practices and Design for Organic User Interfaces (OUIs) – CANCELLED
Yanqing Zhang, Mobile Life Center @ Stockholm University; Ylva Fernaeus, Mobile Life Center @ KTH; Eve Hoggan, Helsinki Institute for Information Technology@ University of Helsinki; Oskar Juhlin, Mobile Life Center @ Stockholm University; Vasiliki Tsaknaki, Mobile Life Center @ KTH
This workshop will contribute to designing new interactive objects with shape-changing organic interface technologies for everyday cultural practices by focusing on aesthetic qualities of the artifacts and social contexts
WS11: On the Integration of User Centred Design in Agile Development
Marta Larusdottir, Reykjavik University; Åsa Cajander, Uppsala University; Jan Gulliksen, The Royal Institute of Technology; Gilbert Cockton, Northumbria University; Peggy Gregory, University of Central Lancashire; Dina Salah, The Open University
We aspire to create a community of HCI professionals interested in the integration of User Centred Design and Agile and hope this workshop and subsequent activities will spark an ongoing conversation.
WS12: Designing Self-care for Everyday Life
Nervo Verdezoto, Aarhus University; Francisco Nunes, TU Wien; Erik Grönvall, IT University of Copenhagen; Geraldine Fitzpatrick, TU Wien; Cristiano Storni, University of Limerick; Morten Kyng, Aarhus University
