CHI 2011 workshop:

Bridging Practices, Theories, and Technologies to Support Reminiscence (W19)

Welcome to the home page for the CHI 2011 workshop on Bridging Practices, Theories, and Technologies to Support Reminiscence. Mail Dan Cosley if you have any questions about the workshop; I'll be happy to answer them.


Workshop plan

Below are the mini-sessions we'll have during the workshop. The plan is for each to take 45-60 minutes with a goal of rich discussion and questions around each of the areas and the work around that area represented at the workshop. For more details at a glance, there is also a full list of papers and abstracts.

We'll start with "one minute why", which is exactly that: you have one minute to introduce yourself and why you're at the workshop -- not so much your work, but what you hope to give to and get from the workshop.

Jeff will then give a nice 30-45 minute overview of the state of the art and plausible future directions for understanding and studying reminiscence, from a useful perspective outside of the CHI centroid. Everyone should read at least the first 6 pages of Jeff's paper, and is encouraged to look through the rest. Questions will be taken, and coffee and snacks served.

The other four topics will be structured as mini- panels. The authors associated with each will have five minutes at the beginning of their session to say anything they want about their work, the session topic, or cheese sandwiches. I'm hoping people will focus on making provocative statements, contributions, or questions based on their work and the topic, rather than attempting to present their workshop papers in five minutes. The fits of papers and themes are not perfect, but they are overall reasonable and should be useful as high-level organizing themes.

Panelists should for sure read the workshop papers of the others in their panel so they're familiar with each other's work. Ideally, you'll spend a little time before the workshop and during breaks and/or lunch sharing the things you're likely to talk about in your five minutes, in order to help coordinate the conversation. Handling mechanical things like getting any slides people want to present onto one computer per mini-panel would make things a lot smoother, and either Victoria Schwanda or I will help groups with this at the workshop.

Depending on the exact timing of breaks and lunch (still TBD), we will do one or two of the mini-panels pre-lunch, and the rest post. After that, we'll talk as a group about how much more we'd like to do, do that, and be done.
