Live, remote and disability-inclusive HCI research and practice

– An exploratory workshop with representatives from Swedish Disability Rights Organisations

More information and a sign-up form will soon be published!

The workshop aims to in collaboration with representatives from Disability Rights Organisations explore and learn \textit{how} live, remote and disability-inclusive human-computer-interaction (HCI) research and practice can be organised and facilitated for everyone to participate on equal terms, regardless of functional capacity. The focus is \textit{not} placed on the technologies used but on interpersonal communication, facilitation and management issues, and practices. An emphasis will also be placed on how to foster solidarity among managers and colleagues and how to take collective responsibility for people who often are being marginalised, such as people with disabilities.

The objectives of the workshop are:
– to bring HCI researchers and practitioners together with representatives from Disability Rights Organisations to learn from each others’ experiences of remote collaboration and communication in hybrid settings,
– to through practical, hands-on design explorations identify disability-inclusive related challenges that arise when working in hybrid settings,
– to capture and reflect upon challenges and experiences gained from partaking in the workshop explorations in hybrid settings,
– to start drafting guidelines for live, remote and disability-inclusive HCI research and practice.

The guidelines will build on the outcome of the workshop, previous HCI research (e.g., Bandukda et al., 2022; Babapour et al., 2021; Lacy et al., 2022; Tang et al., 2023; Nilsson et al., 2022; Eriksson et al., 2023), and the lived experiences of representatives of the Disability Rights Organisations.
