2021 ACM CHI Virtual Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems

Workshop - Human-Data Interaction (HDI) through Design
Sunday 9 May 2021, 13:00 - 17:00 BST

Workshop organisers: Lachlan Urquhart (Edinburgh University), Derek McAuley (Nottingham University), Ian Forrester (BBC Research and Development), Neelima Sailaja (University of Nottingham), Joseph Lindley (Lancaster University).

The aim of the workshop is to map and understand the current research challenges around HDI, and to lay the foundations for a productive research programme for HDI going forward, clarifying its role in the broader HCI zeitgeist, and helping the movement mature so it can be applied effectively to today’s (and tomorrow’s) complex socio-technological challenges.
