Theories, methods and case studies of longitudinal HCI research

Interest in longitudinal studies of users¢ behavior and experiences with
interactive products is mounting, while recent methodological advances
have enabled new ways to elicit as well as process longitudinal data. With
this workshop we want to establish a forum for the exchange of knowledge
and discussion on novel theories, methods and experiences gained through
case studies of longitudinal HCI research. This is an effort towards the
collection of best practices for an edited book publication.

We invite academics and practitioners to submit a 3-4 page position paper
(in CHI Extended Abstracts format) plus a short bio by email to
e.karapanos@gmail.com by January 13th 2012 in order to participate in this
one-day workshop

Your position paper should attempt to address one or more of the following:

Theories of longitudinal HCI research. Discussion of theories, frameworks,
and paradigms of longitudinal HCI research. How can theories of long-term
experience and behavior inform the design of interactive systems? What are
the crucial elements that these theories and framework should capture?
Application domains may range across any area of HCI.

New methods for longitudinal HCI research. Discussion of state-of-the-art
methods for longitudinal HCI research as well as making existing methods
more appropriate to longitudinal work. Examples may include, but not
limited to, the application of in-situ methods in longitudinal settings,
quantitative techniques for modeling dynamics in subjective judgments,
instrumentation for longitudinal data logging.

Case studies of longitudinal HCI research. Discussion of longitudinal HCI
studies and lessons learnt. What questions can longitudinal research
address? What methods and data are more appropriate in longitudinal
settings and how can we analyze them? How can we sustain participants¢
motivations? Application domains may range across any area relevant to
HCI.
