The future will see the design of information and communication technologies that serve ever more complex purposes and problems. For these technologies, creating user-centered support is particularly challenging when users are domain experts with sophisticated knowledge work and collaborations and do not want to become power users to conduct this work electronically. Goals of this workshop are to define what we already know about communicating complex information to such domain experts and clarify our understanding of what issues urgently need further research.
Quality designs must make HCI simpler, not more complex and difficult. The challenge is figuring out how to harness complex phenomena in requirements, design, and testing so that our systems support and enhance the proper level of understanding for open-ended, dynamic knowledge work. To meet these challenges, this workshop will address some of the most pressing issues in designing useful and usable digital information for domain experts knowledge work. These include but are not limited to the following:
Designing for experts.
Representations of complex activities for design
We hope to reach new insights and agreement about
We want this workshop to maximize the exchange of information and ideas among the participants. The workshop will feature a highly interactive format with each participant giving a 15-20 minute presentation followed by a 20-30 minute discussion. We wish to encourage high interactivity and in-depth discussion about each topic.
Keynote talk: Barbara Mirel
Please submit a 2-page position paper about your ongoing work, new interaction designs, opinions or approaches to the problem, or conceptual frameworks or theories. Papers will be peer-reviewed and 10-14 selected by relevance and likelihood of stimulating and contributing to this discussion. The position paper will also be used as part of a book proposal for a collection of the papers presented at the workshop. Email your paper, in PDF, to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject Workshop Submission.
