The 10th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems

19-22 June, 2018 - Paris, France



Workshop on Methods for Designing Usable Sustainability and Green User Experience

Workshop page

With a broad vision of what sustainability is HCI and how it should be engineering and incorporating in the wider interactive systems engineering lifecycle, this multidisciplinary workshop has as a key objective to investigate the sustainability perceptions, dimensions and challenges from the interactive systems engineering perspective. The practical goal objective is to get to know the user experiences and interactions with software systems regarding sustainability. Where those green software systems are being used and what are their impacts in terms of sustainability?

Workshop on Heterogeneous Models for Engineering of Interactive System

Workshop page

The Workshop on Heterogeneous Models for Engineering of Interactive Systems is meant to bring scientists and interested researchers together who are interested in the development, investigation and use of heterogeneous models and modeling methods in the context of user interfaces, interaction techniques, and interactive systems. The terms heterogeneous model and heterogeneous modeling approach may be defined as models and methods that facilitate more than one description concept for the description of an artifact (e.g., BPMN and Petri nets, also referred to as multi-model), as a combination of discrete and continuous processes using a description approach (e.g., discrete and continuous Petri nets, also referred to as hybrid model), or the combination of models of various aspects of a system (e.g., in case of co-simulation). The workshop's intention is to present and discuss existing methods for various possible research directions in the context of the investigation, development and application of heterogeneous models for engineering or interactive system.
