Meeting Description:

This is a one-day workshop at the CHI 2019 conference aimed at researchers and practitioners involved in speech-based human-computer interaction (HCI) work. In particular, we're looking for contributions that discuss theoretical concepts and methods used in speech interface research - those that exist and how we may need to redefined them in speech-HCI contexts. This is a part-day workshop and participants are encouraged to submit 2-page provocation papers by February 12 2019.

Call for Papers:

Speech as an interaction modality has grown through the integration of Intelligent Personal Assistants (IPAs) like Google Assistant and Siri into mobile and home-based devices. This collaborative workshop focuses on theories and methods we can use to understand user behaviours with speech interfaces.

Through the workshop we will establish what theories, concepts, and paradigms are important in understanding our interaction choices with speech interfaces, and potential new theoretical frameworks required to explore them. We will critically evaluate existing methodologies used to explore these interactions and determine priority areas for improving methods to explore the theories and paradigms identified.

This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners from any domain interested in understanding user interaction behaviours with speech interfaces. Interested researchers are invited to submit position papers outlining a theory, concept or paradigm and related research methods and highlight their importance in understanding user behaviour in speech interface interactions.

Position papers should be 2 pages maximum (excluding references) in the CHI EA format and submitted by February 12. Papers will be reviewed by the organisers and chosen based on 1) relevance to the workshop; 2) quality of the contribution; 3) ability to contribute to discussion. Once accepted, at least one author must register for the workshop and at least one day of the CHI 2019 conference.

Submissions and Queries should be sent to:
