This workshop follows a handful of CHI workshops, SIGs, panels, courses, and paper sessions on related topics, as well as similar discussions in related fields. The workshop will pull some of this work together and get the word out. We will post the output on our workshop website, such as HCI curricula, research agenda, course resources, speakers’ videos, and a workshop report. We also plan to submit a workshop report to Interactions, Communication of the ACM, a special issue of a journal, or possibly a CHI 2020 paper.

In addition, we will organize a series of workshops, panels, summer/winter schools, and local meet-ups based on the interests solicited from this workshop.
