TOUCH ME – HAPTIC EVALUATION METHODS FOR EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCES

TOUCH ME – HAPTIC EVALUATION METHODS FOR EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCES
Full-day workshop at the Mensch & Computer-conference 2013 held in Bremen,
Germany (http://www.interaktivevielfalt.org/mensch-computer/) from 8-11th
of September 2013.

IMPORTANT DATES
*NEW* Submission deadline: June, 16th (instead of June, 1st), 2013, to busch@cure.at
Notification: June, 26th, 2013
Submission format: 2-4 page position papers, formatted according to Mensch & Computer-format (anonymized).

SCOPE AND FOCUS
We plan to explore, discuss and collect ideas on haptic materials for
evaluating users’ emotional experiences with interactive systems. Haptic
evaluation materials allow for a qualitative, playful and holistic
evaluation of emotional factors – without interfering with the users’
personal experience during interaction. This provides a tactile
enhancement to classical visual or verbal-based evaluation methods and
therefore includes users and participants with special needs that
otherwise could face difficulties expressing their experience
(UX-evaluation-4-all).

There are various methods for evaluating emotional experiences of users
interacting with systems, e.g. emotion questionnaires, interviews and
physiological measures. Most of these methods only rely on visual or
verbal stimuli, do not capture emotion in a holistic way or are too
invasive (e.g. physiological measures), interrupt the experiences of users
or face other shortcomings (e.g. exclude blind, illiterate or users with
lower cognitive abilities).

SUBMISSIONS
We call for submissions of 2-4 page position papers (in English) in the Mensch & Computer-format with ideas, possibilities, limitations and possible study setups on haptic materials for evaluating emotional experiences. Submissions will be collected and reviewed. Please find further information on the subject and the workshop on:
