Nature & HCI workshop

@CHItaly 2021

Designing for/with/around Nature

Exploring new frontiers of outdoor-related HCI

This workshop aims to bring together researchers exploring the role of technology in shaping the outdoor experience broadly intended as an open-air setting that includes cities, peripheries, rural areas, wild natural environments, etc. Resonating with the CHItaly theme "Frontiers of HCI", this workshop will explore the frontiers of i) using technology outdoors, in terms of scope, opportunities, and limitations; ii) spaces that are not completely natural nor artificial but hybrid and offer opportunities for remote and asynchronous outdoor experiences; iii) interaction design in accounting for human interests over a variety of non-human ecologies.
