Call for Papers
CHI 2010 workshop - Senior-Friendly Technologies: Interaction Design for the Elderly
to be held conjunction with CHI2010, Atlanta, GA, USA
10 April 2010

Submission Deadline: 03 January 2010

Not enough attention has been given to research on interactive products and applications specifically for the elderly. Yet, senior citizens make up a growing base of people who can potentially draw benefits, such as entertainment, socialization or mental exercise, by engaging with technology. This workshop aims to address research questions involving design guidelines, methodological issues and contextual analysis amongst others. The workshop seeks to gather designers, academics in human-computer interaction or other related fields, and researchers, who have preferably worked with the elderly before or are familiar with their environments.

Submissions are invited on (but not limited to) the following themes:
 Identifying key ways or roles that the elderly can play in the design process
 Formulating user requirements for elderly interaction design
 Understanding factors that influence elderly adoption and acceptance of technologies

Submissions should be a maximum of 4 pages in the CHI Extended Abstracts format (Word/PDF) describing the area of research, specific work (empirical or theoretical) on
the workshop topic. Submissions should be emailed to with subject line as “CHI 2010 workshop submission”. In the email for submission of the position paper, the contact author is required to indicate how many authors will be attending the workshop if the paper is accepted.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Participants will be selected to represent diverse perspectives and papers will be selected by relevance and likelihood of stimulating and contributing to discussion. Note that at least one author of each accepted paper will need to register for the workshop and for one or more days of the CHI conference itself.

 Deadline for submission of Position Papers: January 3, 2010
 Notification of acceptance for Position Papers: January 30, 2010
 Workshop: April 10, 2010
