CFP for CHI Workshop: Towards a Responsible Innovation Agenda for HCI

I’m helping to organize a workshop in the upcoming CHI conference in Glasgow. A detailed CFP can be found here, and the extended abstract can be downloaded here (PDF; 213kb).

Here’s the skinny:

In recent years responsible innovation has gained significant traction and can be seen to adorn a myriad of research platforms, education programs, and policy frameworks. In this workshop, we invite HCI researchers to discuss the relations between the CHI community and responsible innovation. This workshop looks to build provocations and principles for and with HCI researchers who are or wish to become responsible innovators. The workshop looks to do this by asking attendees to think about the social, environmental, and economic impacts of ICT and HCI and explore how research innovation frameworks speak to responsible HCI innovation. Through the workshop we look to examine 5 questions to develop a set of provocations and principles, which will help encourage HCI and computer science researchers, educators, and innovators to reflect on the impact of their research and innovation.
