Call for Workshop Proposal 

We invite you to submit proposals for workshops at IndiaHCI 2020. Workshops give an opportunity of bringing together design researchers and design practitioners in academia, public sector, business and industry for a focused and interactive discussion. The theme for this year’s edition is “Emerging Trends in Technology Design”, where the focus would be on several aspects of technology design within the larger context of innovation in emerging markets and diverse end-users. This year the workshops will be conducted online because of the prevailing global circumstances. The exact modalities of the online conference will be communicated in due course. 

What is expected in a Workshop 

Workshops are interactive sessions where participants collaborate and work on a common topic. Unlike courses, workshops enable both organizer(s) and participants to contribute. Each workshop should generate ideas that will give the HCI community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic or that suggest promising directions for future work. 

Preparing and Submitting for workshop 

A workshop submission must be prepared according to the Conference Extended Abstract Format. It must be submitted via the PCS Submission System  as a single PDF file. The proposal must be no more than 4 pages (including references) and have the following structure:
