Call for Participation

This one day interdisciplinary workshop at DIS 2020 aims to advance the HCI and design research agenda on mental wellbeing by taking stock of the current and future challenges to design a roadmap for a more cohesive and future-oriented work. It will bring together academics, designers and practitioners interested in tracking, assessing, monitoring and training mental wellbeing, with a view towards shaping the HCI future research agenda in this space.

To achieve this aim, the workshop will focus on the following objectives:

  • reflect on the current and future challenges for designing mental wellbeing technologies that assess, monitor, diagnose, or train
  • critique the current design methodologies and the methods for evaluating technologies’ impact
  • explore value of extending such work to include vulnerable groups for greater social impact, and the increasing associated ethical demands
  • engage in future-oriented thinking to design a roadmap for tackling both the current challenges and well as future ones

We invite papers in the CHI Extended Abstract format, of maximum 4 pages including references, outlining the contribution to workshop objectives and the rationale for attending it. At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop and all participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the conference.
