Die HCI Gruppe auf der CSCW 2018!

Call for Paper

Digital products and services are commonplace in our personal lives where software and its algorithms provide assistance and amenities. However, interactive systems within industrial settings have yet to catch up with consumer products, especially with regard to the quality of interaction and user experience. With the rise of automation and data exchange on massive scales, the role of human work is challenged and the importance of cooperation emphasised. New concepts of smart factories in which machines and software are doing parts of the work tasks emerge, drastically altering the nature of work in industrial settings from manual labor to increasingly complex tasks. HCI and especially CSCW offer concepts, technical tools and methods to cope with this disruptive shift towards an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

This full-day workshop explores the design space of IIoT applications.

November 3, 2018 | New York City’s Hudson River (Jersey City)

Deadline: September 28, 2018.

3-5 pages ACM Extended Abstracts Format.

We welcome researchers and practitioners from a diversity of disciplines addressing questions on technological, human, organisational and methodological challenges and opportunities for IIoT applications.

See the Call for Papers for submission details.
