Luigina Ciolfi

Upcoming workshop at CHI 2013


I will be co-hosting a workshop at CHI 2013 in Paris in April on “Explorations in Social Interaction Design”.

As computing moves into the background and social media pervade everyday life, we need in HCI a broader vocabulary and additional resources for designing with socially generated data in ways that are rich, meaningful and sustainable. On the other hand, as designers of future products and environments, we urgently need to grasp and embrace the fluid social practices of connectivity.

In this one-day workshop, we aim to explore how the two lines of inquiry of sociability and materiality are and could be further linked towards a novel research agenda in Social Interaction Design (SxD) that merges social data and networked connections with a vision for materiality in computing and tangible interaction.
