CHItaly is the Biannual Conference of the Italian SIGCHI Chapter, now arrived at its 13th edition. It is open to both members and nonmembers, especially addressing HCI scholars working in the Mediterranean and central European countries.
Every topic of human-computer interaction is welcome.
Additionally, this edition will elaborate on the theme of the 'next interaction', acknowledging that the relations between the individual self, society, environment and technology are deeply changing.
Information and Communication Technologies offer new opportunities to sense huge amounts of data and to use such data to augment human knowledge, influence behavior and control the environment. How can human society take advantage of these new opportunities? What are the risks related to delegating control to automated, networked, sensing machines? Which ethical boundaries need to be confirmed and which to be revised? CHItaly2019 will pay special attention to topics such as:
- responsibly designing the interchange with the ICT components that are progressively becoming a symbiotic part of our body and mind, and keeping the human in the loop while implementing automation in the factory of the future;
- getting publicly engaged and able to interact with the huge amount of data related to the urban, social and natural environment, in order to stimulate proper actions within a sustainable, smart framework;
- exploiting new interactive paradigms to augment users’ knowledge and engagement with cultural heritage, and to access different knowledge domains, including art and science, by coupling cognitive and emotional experience;
- designing persuasive, motivating, empowering technologies that increase awareness of health issues and motivate to positive life styles.
