A workshop proposal on philosophy and HCI by an international group of researchers from the US, Sweden, the UK, and Norway has been accepted for CHI 2019, the leading international conference in HCI. The group of organisers includes Victor Kaptelinin, Professor at the Department of Informatics. Other organisers are Norman Su, Jeffrey Bardzell, Shaowen Bardzell, Jed Brubaker, Ann Light, and Dag Svanaes.
The workshop is the first HCI workshop specifically focusing on philosophy. It will provide a forum for discussing a wide range of issues at the intersection of philosophy and HCI, such as the impact of philosophy on past and present HCI research and how philosophy can help HCI address emerging challenges facing the field. The workshop aims to produce an agenda for future research bringing HCI and philosophy closer together.
