The workshop addresses the cultural sensitivities when designing interactive systems. The challenges in culturally sensitive design can arise e.g. from historical, ideological, or ethical factors, and needs to be taken into account when conducting HCI research e.g. with cultural heritage, under-represented user groups, topics of cultural rituals, or in cross-cultural interfaces.
The aim of the workshop is to gather together researchers, designers and practitioners that are working with cultural sensitive topics. The workshop aims to be a forum to present different viewpoints, challenges and lessons learnt, and offer a stage where these questions can be discussed with peers and new colleagues with similar interests. We encourage multi-disciplinary participation, and wish provide an opportunity to network. The workshop works towards recognizing the culturally sensitive contexts, topics and issues, and distributing the knowledge of best practices and experiences to prevent conflicts when designing for culturally sensitive topics.
The workshop will support online participation. More information about the details will be announced later. This would be aligned with the message what the chairs communicated in the notification. It seems evident, that we have to at least support the online mode:
“NordiCHI 2020 will happen! As uncertainty about the evolution and impact of COVID-19 remains and the organizers do not want to rush into a fully online conference, they are delaying the decision on format as much as possible. A decision will be announced by mid-August. As of now, we can assure you that the conference will be either hybrid or fully online, why we ask you to prepare a workshop format to fit these circumstances.”
