Position Paper Call

Since 2012, personal fabrication has emerged as a new topic in the HCI community with an increasing number of publications every year. While within HCI, fabrication researchers have already built a strong community; almost no collaboration with other related disciplines, such as computer graphics, robotics, art, architecture, and material science, exists. We believe that especially in the context of HCI, collaboration with other fields can provide valuable input and create new perspectives on HCI challenges.


This one-day workshop aims at bridging the gap between related disciplines in the area of personal fabrication by bringing together researchers from different fields. The focus of this workshop is to form connections across disciplines that can give rise to ongoing collaborations and to inspire HCI researchers to reach out into other topic areas for future research.

Submissions can be of two types:

(1) envisioned cross-disciplinary research projects, i.e. a project idea that requires skills or perspectives from several fields.

(2) experience reports on cross-disciplinary research projects, i.e. a report of an in-progress or finished project in which the authors are collaborating across disciplines.

For your submission, please use the CHI Extended Abstract format (max. 4 pages):
Word | Latex | InDesign

Please send your submissions as a PDF file until January 31 to:

crossfabworkshop@gmail.com

Participants submitting an envisioned cross-disciplinary research project are also required to include one sketch/image that showcases their idea.

At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop and must register for the workshop and for at least one day of the conference.
