Human Work Interaction Design Guidelines for Industry 4.0
Workshop of IFIP WG13.6 HWID at AVI 2016
7 June 2016 - Bari, Italy
"Human Work Interaction Design Guidelines for Industry 4.0" is an AVI 2016 workshop focused on discussing how in a world where the paradigm of Internet of Things allows to connect a multitude of objects and make them communicate in an intelligent fashion in production and consumption the quality of workers experience and outputs should be improved.
In a world where the cultural paradigms of Internet of Things (IoT) (USA), Industry 4.0 (Europe), and Internet+ (China) allow connecting a multitude of objects and making them communicate in an intelligent way, human work and workplace environments need to be reconfigured to improve the workers experience and the outcomes of industrial processes. In many organizations, there is a lack of knowledge regarding how to deploy technology to be appropriately used by workers while taking into account contextual characteristics of physically or spatially unusual workplaces, mentally demanding, or specifically repetitive activities.
This workshop aims at bringing together experts in industry, academy, and public administration interested in discussing the evolution that HCI needs to address in order to design smart and trans-mediated workplaces.
The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following ones:
- Constraints for research and design in Industry 4.0 contexts, e.g., restricted access for research, or difficulties in articulating the specifics of the workplaces to a wider audience that is not familiar with them
- Development of a new and harmonized interdisciplinary framework for trans-mediated and smart workplaces
- Consolidate in theoretical HWID models experiences from the workshop papers empirical case studies of human work analysis and interaction design
- Learning from participants experiences in different work domains
- Exploration of how work analysis and interaction design have evolved, have to evolve, and can be made to co-evolve in order to support workers in Industry 4.0, pervasive, and smart workplaces
- Smart workplaces
- Design of simple interactions for complex work domains
Potential participants are invited to first submit a 2-4 page long position paper formatted according to the ACM extended abstract format (http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform/sigchi-extended-abstracts-format-2016/view). An International scientific committee will review the papers on the basis of their originality and quality. Submissions must be submitted via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hwid4industry40).
At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop.
Abstracts of accepted papers will be included in a paper describing the workshop, published in the AVI 2016 conference proceedings. Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for a special issue of a journal.
For registrations, please visit the AVI 2016 website (http://avi2016.di.uniba.it/).
