CHI 2012 Workshop on Heritage Matters: Designing for Current and Future
Values through Digital and Social Technologies

Submission deadline: (Mon) Jan 23, 2012
Acceptance notification: Feb 10, 2012
Workshop date: (Sun) May 6, 2012



This one-day workshop brings together HCI scholars and practitioners who
share a common interest in heritage matters. Drawing on the concept of
‘heritage’ as a framework for personal, social, and institutional practices
that bring the past to matter in the present, the workshop addresses how
personal digital archives, heirlooms, and inscriptions come to have social
and cultural value in the long term.

The goal of the workshop is to expand the boundaries of HCI theory and
practice beyond individuals acting ‘in the moment’ to individuals,
communities, and organizations participating ‘over time’ in the social
production of personal and collective memory and identity.

We welcome scholars and practitioners from areas of expertise that include
human-computer interaction, design studies, interaction and product design,
anthropology, sociology, history, geography, heritage studies, memory
studies, cultural studies, and digital media arts.

Participants will be selected on the basis of a submitted 4 to 6 page
position paper in the CHI Extended Abstracts format. Papers will be
accepted based on originality and quality. We intend to represent a broad
and diverse array of viewpoints. Participation from disciplines
underrepresented in HCI is particularly welcomed. At least one author must
register to attend the workshop, in addition to registering for at least
one day of the conference.

Position papers should be a PDF in the ACM Extended Abstracts Format sent
as an email attachment to by Monday, January 23,
