ECCE 2017 - Workshops

Workshop 1: AN ECOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE IN HUMAN-TECHNOLOGY INTERACTION: TRANSFORMING THE EVERYDAY

This workshop aims at analysing the connections between ecological interface design with other common interface design methods, enabling participants to better understand how to combine approaches in the creation of design solutions. We propose to approach this in the perspective of transforming everyday interactions of people with technologies, in particular cognitive work approaches, using examples and case studies. Examples of everyday services and technologies that are already enabled by multiple cognitive engineering approaches include Amazon’s Echo, IBM’s Watson, Apple’s Siri, services like Dropbox, Spotify, Pinterest and so many others.

Workshop 2: Robots in Contexts: Human-Robot Interaction as Physically and Socially Embedded

IMPORTANT DATES:
- Submission by: June 25, 2017
- Notification of Acceptance: July 1, 2017
- Workshop: September 19, 2017
 
THEME AND AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP
Robotic technologies are being increasingly integrated into real life settings. The adoption of robots by the society is transcending the initial fascination with novel technology and is gradually entering a new phase, characterized by a massive impact of the technology on various aspects of our everyday lives. These developments emphasize the need to better understand how robotic technologies shape, and are being shaped by, the physical and social contexts in which they are used.
 
The aim of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in analysis, design, and evaluation of contextually embedded human-robot interaction (HRI) and, in the context of ECCE, identify key relevant issues and collectively explore a range of methods, concepts, and design approaches that could help address such issues.
