Date(s) - 14/01/2021
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

User testing is an essential part of Human Computer Interaction work. Social distancing and ethical restrictions that are currently in place have made it challenging to carry out the type of user experiments that we, as a research community, are used to. Despite this, work in the area is still continuing with an example of this being the large number of papers that were submitted to CHI2021.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers in the community to discuss the challenges that are apparent due to current restrictions, and to discover solutions to these challenges that have been adopted across research groups. We welcome volunteers to share methods that they have used to continue research work over the last 9 months, with potential topics including:

  • Facilitating in Person Testing
  • Facilitating User Group Interaction
  • Facilitating Remote Testing

We also welcome attendance from researchers/practitioners that have an interest in this area and may be planning on carrying out research studies in the coming months.

You can sign up for the event here.

For more information please contact Michael Crabb or Mary Ellen Foster.
