Visions of Human-Computer Interaction

These "vision" papers challenge a dominant pattern, propose going beyond mimicking prior technologies, or cast a vision of future technologies. This is not an exhaustive set of such papers, just a set chosen to be interesting and appropriate.

Non-Standard Reading Format

Each student has two responsibilities:

Because "As We May Think" was presented as part of the previous lecture, you may not present it. You may still choose to read it.

No reading report is assigned. Reading a second paper benefits in-class discussion, helping you see these visions and explore them appropriately. Because some of these papers are quite long, you can and should skim according to your needs.

Contributions in Human-Computer Interaction

Read the framing paper:

Below are examples of CHI 2019 papers that correspond to Wobbrock’s types of research contribution in HCI.

Select two additional readings to review, focusing on papers that are most likely to correspond to the contribution style(s) relevant in your potential project(s). You should not focus on the details of these papers, but rather their organization of the research and how it is presented. We include these to provide concrete examples of the contributions, but our in-class discussion will focus on the framing paper.

CHI 2020 Virtual Activities

Many of us would have been at CHI 2020 this week, and we encourage you to participate in remote activities being organized by various elements of the CHI community. As part of such activities, and/or through your own searching, also complete your group project's Survey of Recent Related Research.

The course staff will be available to meet with project teams during class time. Such meetings are optional, but could focus on identifying potentially relevant readings, seeking guidance on how to think about a specific reading, or other project-related advising. Sign up for the reserved meeting times here:
