International Workshop on

Kochi University of Technology, Japan
January 12th, 2019

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) play a vital role in almost every aspect of daily life. ICTs are so fundamental to modern life that they now find many applications in the wide diversity of people, groups, industries and institutions in every corner of our world. Human-Engaged Computing (HEC) concerns the way humans interact with ICTs and the impact these technologies have on human lives, relationships, human potential and human capabilities. In this workshop, we will invite three experts to give their points of view of HEC practice on different Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) directions.

A very important part of the workshop is THE POSTER PRESENTATION through which participants can introduce their research findings, discuss their work, foster collaborations and propose and develop underlying methodological frameworks, all with the intention of driving the ICT field forward in fuller awareness of the place, function and responsibilities of humanity in the nature of things.

The poster track invites submissions from all ICT areas. We especially seek contributions that showcase early, relatively speculative and/or not yet completed work. Authors are required to submit:

1. A poster paper including title, author information and the abstract of your study. Submitted poster papers should follow the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts;

2. A designed graphic poster including the main content, graphs, data or conclusion of your study. Your poster should be brought to the venue and placed on designated notice boards. Note that, the poster size should be A0 (84.1 x 118.4cm, 33.11 x 46.61 inches), and there is no AC power supply for poster presentations.

Please note also that there is no requirement to anonymize poster submissions and at least one author of each accepted poster must register for the workshop.
