What is a tutorial?

Tutorials offer practitioners, students and researchers the opportunity to extend their knowledge into new areas of expertise and to learn about specific concepts, methods and techniques from recognized field experts. Tutorials are held on Saturday 8th and on Sunday 9th of October 2022, before the actual conference starts. A tutorial may be 1 or 3 hours in length (morning or afternoon session) including scheduled breaks. The NordiCHI 2022 conference would like to offer a wide variety of tutorials for researchers, practitioners, designers, developers, managers and students.

We invite proposals for tutorials focusing on all themes of the Human Computer Interaction field, and in particular, we invite tutorials focusing on the theme of the conference: participative computing for sustainable futures. We encourage instructors to propose tutorials on new and emerging areas, methods and technologies, or to experiment with new forms of instruction and innovative perspectives in an HCI context. We also welcome proposals for tutorials on foundational themes of HCI.

The accepted tutorials will run in the university lecture or meeting rooms, the size of which is determined by the number of registered participants. The standard equipment offered for each tutorial includes a projector, loudspeakers, whiteboard/flipchart, and wireless internet connection. If you need other equipment, please state it in your tutorial proposal.
