Working groups and workshops provide a venue for the exchange and presentation of new methods, research, developments and applications on a topic related to Human-Computer Interaction in a broad sense. Whether it is an existing AFIHM working group, or a group of people wishing to organise a workshop on a particular topic, these sessions represent an opportunity to make advances in a specific area, and foster the development of communities of like-minded people.
As in the previous two years, HMI offers the possibility for industry to organise workshops to train the HMI community in the use of their tools. This is in addition to the opportunity to run a demo stand at the demo night, and provides a platform for in-depth discussion of the tools presented.
The topics proposed in the panels and workshops can be related to the main conference theme of AI/HCI linkages or to other aspects of HCI, such as theoretical or applied research, HCI practices, new methodologies, HCI teaching, HCI for learning, emerging application areas, technological innovations, design innovations, or topics related to management and leadership, strategy, and organisational issues.
During the conference, a special session will be set up to allow the organisers to give feedback on the workshops and working groups to all conference participants.
The format of the workshops and working groups is free. They can be presentations of contributions that will have been selected by the organisers (see sections below), collective work sessions for the joint writing of an article, brainstorming sessions, or any other form of exchange.
