Research experience in this topic is not necessary. We are looking for
participants with strong interests, novel ideas, and a willingness to
participate in open-minded discussions.
This one-day workshop at CHI 2012 will be an opportunity to discuss issues
and challenges related to HCI research on preventing, de-escalating and
recovering from conflict. We welcome participation from those who have
conducted research in this area, as well as from those with strong
interests and ideas for future research including the use of technologies,
methods and approaches, the role of policies and practices, and the most
appropriate situations in which HCI may play a positive role.
The workshop will provide all participants an opportunity to present their
work and ideas. From these presentations, participants will select
emerging themes to discuss. There will also be time to plan for future
collaborations, including the publication of workshop outcomes.

workshop and all participants must register for the workshop and for at
least one day of the conference.
