International Workshop on Human-Engaged Computing
Kochi University of Technology, Japan
November 10th, 2017

Poster submission deadline: September 30, 2017
Early registration deadline: October 10, 2017

The Center for Human-Engaged Computing (CHEC) has organized an international workshop on Human-Engaged Computing (HEC). The worship will be held at Kochi University of Technology in Japan on November 10th, 2017.

The aim of this workshop is to rethink the relationship between humans and computers with particular attention being paid to our future as human beings. Seven distinguished speakers from around the world and from several domains will give their different views on HEC and related topics. Consistent with HEC’s holistic approach, our speakers represent not only Human-Computer Interaction but also the humanities, engineering design, computer sciences and cognitive science.

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. The way humans relate to ICTs and the impact these technologies have on human lives, relationships, human potential and human capabilities is the special interest of HEC. That is why we have invited seven distinguished speakers from several domains – Human-Computer Interaction, the humanities, engineering design, computer science and cognitive science.

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 a 1-page poster paper including author information and a description of the study. Submitted poster papers should follow the Workshop Poster template (Word: Download here). Accepted posters should be brought to the venue and placed on designated notice boards. Note that,

1. The poster size should be A0 (84.1 x 118.4cm, 33.11 x 46.61 inches).
2. A small desk can be provided on request.
