  • EXTENDED: March 23rd (16th), 2012. Workshop submission deadline.
  • April 16th, 2012. Feedback to authors.
  • June 12th, 2012. Workshop at DIS2012.


Maximum 4 A4 pages of ACM Paper Format (not the Extended Abstract Format).

To ensure a high quality of the workshop, a program committee (PC) will be established to review the workshop submissions. Co-organizers of the workshop will serve on the PC too.

After the workshop the accepted contributions will be posted on the website, the summarized results of the workshop will be published, and further discussion of the topic will be stimulated in a wider audience. The workshop organizers will consider the publication of a revised version of accepted papers as part of a special issue in an HCI-related journal.

Registration Policy:

Please note that workshop participants must register for the workshop and for one or more days of the main conference.

For some early indication on prices, please have a look at the last year’s workshop & conference pricing:

DIS has this policy since workshops are supposed to be a part of the whole conference, not separate events that happen to be in the same location at the same time. The intention is that people will be attending the conference and further connect with the community.
