"" Workshops activities if accepted

  • Workshop facilitators select participants on the basis of position papers submitted in advance of the workshop.
  • Pre-workshop activities are required after workshop is accepted

"" Workshop Details
The entire workshop should focus on the active exchange of ideas among the participants. Workshops typically accommodate up to 20 participants for a full-day session. Workshops can serve as the first step in planning books and articles. As the facilitator of a workshop, you should collect and organize participant position papers and prepare materials for your participants. Highly successful workshops arise from a skillful combination of structure and free-form discussion. The more you plan, the more interesting and engaging your workshop will be.

"" Workshop Requirements
During the conference facilitators must present the workshop results, either as a poster session, or with posters and other materials to be available in the conference Commons area. After the workshop, workshop facilitators are required to produce a report in the form of an article to be published either in User Experience (preferred) or UPA Voice; these articles must be submitted within three months after the conference.
