Keynotes and Panels

Keynote: Elisabeth McClure - Learning through play with technology at the LEGO Foundation

Room: Aula

Time: Monday, 9:00-10:30

Presenter: Elisabeth McClure, The LEGO Foundation


The LEGO Foundation seeks to transform learning systems into holistic, child-centered spaces for playful learning, and build a future where opportunities to learn through play are accessible to all children. The Foundation works in countries all over the world, and one of its initiatives specially looks at what learning through play with technology can look like across different cultures and contexts, including Rwanda, Kenya, Brazil, and Denmark, where the locally available materials and technologies differ enormously. Elisabeth McClure, of the LEGO Foundation, will use a hands-on experience and examples from around the world to demonstrate how the Foundation has come to think about learning through play with technology across diverse contexts and with diverse children.

Keynote: Kasper Hornbæk - Implications for Theory

Room: Aula

Time: Wednesday, 9:00-10:00

Presenter: Kasper Hornbæk, University of Copenhagen


Everybody agrees that theory is important. Yet, it is rare to see papers in HCI raise implications for theory. In this talk, I will discuss why. I will outline some barriers to drawing implications for theory that originate in beliefs about the value of induction, iteration, novelty, and positioning. After having argued against these beliefs, I will outline the benefits of raising implications for theory and suggest some tricks of doing so that might benefit cumulation of insights and theory building in HCI.

Panel: Conversations on Ethics

Room: Aula

Time: Monday, 14:00–15:30

Moderator: Eva Eriksson

Panelists: Carla Griggio, Midas Nouwens, Dag Svanæs, Christopher Frauenberger


Ethics, with its many complex facets, is a growing topic in HCI venues, both in relation to teaching and research. Still, much of the formal ethics is black-boxed, as ethical procedures do not follow international standards and thus apply rules and regulations adjusted to the level of university or country, where the content, scope and rigorousness of the ethics procedures remains opaque for the broader HCI community. This causes tensions in an international and interdisciplinary community with a large range of cultural differences. It raises discussions in PC meetings and complicates both the peer-review and the writing process. Additionally, situational ethics, which concerns responding in real-time to often unexpected events during the research and design process, is still underrepresented when reporting on research. In this panel, we aim to take on a Nordic perspective on ethics in HCI research. As a starting point, we have invited panelists which will share some of their experienced ethical challenges and based on these pose open questions to the audience. In the panel, we hope for a fruitful conversation between NordiCHI participants and panelists, where various perspectives are warmly welcome.

Panel: Conversations on Care

Room: Aula

Time: Tuesday, 14:00–15:30

Moderator: Teresa Almeida

Panelists: Anna Vallgårda, Jonas Fritsch, Sarah Homewood, Winnie Soon


Care is multiple and as a concept it deals with myriad topics including the body, health and wellbeing, the environment, and any disruptions within. Different perspectives on care include placing the global and the intimate in relation to the ethical, relational, political and transformative approaches to not only human-centered but more-than-human worlds. Through and with care, researchers in our field can think about the implications of the present in the immediate future. For example, how should care as a concept be understood in the context of HCI? And, why is a care perspective important to HCI? Is care related to other current discourses in HCI research (e.g. gender) and if so, in what ways? What are the ethical challenges facing research with a care perspective? Does caring help regenerate, resist, and imagine more just and sustainable futures?
