ONE DAY workshop - EITHER Saturday 21st OR Sunday 22nd April 2018. (We will let you know which day as soon as we know )

(Un)Acceptable!?! – Re-thinking the Social Acceptability of Emerging Technologies

Key to understanding the human aspects of interactive systems is the concept of technology acceptance. Actual, or imagined opprobrium from other people can have a major impact on how many computing innovations are received, but HCI lacks comprehensive, up-to date, and act...ionable, articulations of “social acceptability”. The spread of information and communication technologies (ICT) into all aspects of our lives appears to have dramatically increased the range and scale of potential issues with social acceptance. This workshop brings together academics and practitioners to discuss what social acceptance and acceptability mean in the context of various emerging technologies and modern human-computer interaction. We aim to bring the concept up to date, as well as to identify relevant research steps for making it more useful, actionable and researchable with well-operationalised metrics.

Key questions for this one day event:

What does social acceptance mean with respect to modern HCI?
How to design for social acceptability and how to evaluate and measure it?
Where has research in the CHI community succeeded or failed in designing for social acceptability?...
Does an interaction or a technology have to be specifically designed for social acceptance,
or will acceptance come naturally over time if the interface is accepted by ‘everyone else’?
Should tech companies hire “Social Acceptance Advocates”?
What about engaging in technology-driven research resulting in products that might not become socially acceptable in a lifetime?
