What is a workshop?

NordiCHI 2022 welcomes proposals for workshops as spaces for debate and co-development of ideas and approaches related to the advancement of research and practice within the field of Human-Computer Interaction.

Workshops are based on participants’ active engagement and contribution. Participants prepare in advance to share perspectives, knowledge, and interest in the workshop theme. The outcomes of workshops include heightened sensitivity to new issues, joint publications and research programs and critical yet friendly feedback on emerging ideas. Often, they establish or solidify research networks and contribute to community building.

Successful workshop proposals for NordiCHI 2022 should make full use of the workshop format, avoiding conference-style paper presentations, and instead prioritise debate and joint action. 

Proposals that reach out to other disciplines and traditions, and to industry, art, activism, and other practices to advance constructive and critical discussions were welcomed. Successful proposals clearly explain the aim and relevance of the workshop, intended audience, planned activities, expected outcomes and impact for the intended community.

This said we invite proposals for workshops focusing on all themes related to the field of Human-Computer Interaction. In particular, we invite workshops focusing on the theme of the conference: Participative computing for sustainable futures

Selection Process

The selection process is curated. Workshop selection will happen by the discretion of the Workshop Chairs. Acceptance of proposals will be informed by factors such as:

  • Clarity of intended outcomes
  • Value for the participants
  • Level of expected interest
  • Impact and relevance to the NordiCHI’s broad audience
  • Profile of the organizers

Submission details

  • Submissions should NOT be anonymised
  • All materials must be submitted electronically to PCS by the deadline. In PCS, first click “Submissions” at the top of the page, from the dropdown menus select “SIGCHI”, “NordiCHI 2022” and the track you want to submit to.
  • Submissions can be up to six pages long (excluding references) in the ACM standard single-column format - – template information here
  • Submissions should be self-contained and clearly provide a detailed workshop description including:
    • Title of the workshop
    • Names and affiliations of the organizers
    • An abstract describing the aims, objectives, benefits and significance of the proposed workshop
    • A scheduled overview of planned activities
    • A draft of the call for workshop participation
    • The promotional strategy, detailing how the organizers plan to recruit and select participants
    • Organizers’ background, provided as short biographical notes
    • Flexibility in terms of hybrid participation

Technical setup at the conference

We can generally provide a projector, screen and speakers. Additional technical requirements must be discussed with the chairs and the authors can request assistance for setup.

Additional conditions

Although accepted workshops will be announced through the NordiCHI 2022 website, workshop organisers must set and circulate a call for workshop participation through appropriate channels and establish a website for the workshop no later than July 1.

Please note that the period between the notification of acceptance and the required public announcement is short, so plan accordingly.

Workshop participants are selected by the organisers of the workshop, based on criteria set by the organisers. Typically, potential participants submit a position paper, stating their contribution, interest and expertise related to the workshop. NordiCHI 2022 encourages workshop organisers to experiment with submission formats.

The possible publication of workshop participants contributions is the sole decision and responsibility of the workshop organisers.

Workshops are run with at least 5 participants registered by the early bird registration deadline so organisers should be active in promoting the workshop to relevant audiences.

Chairs:  Maarten van Mechelen & Eva Eriksson
