Call for workshops

Workshop topics

CHItaly2023 welcomes proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. The goal of the workshops is to provide additional venues for discussing and exploring emerging areas of research in HCI, in general, and HCAI (Human-Centered AI), in particular, with a group of like-minded researchers and practitioners from industry and academia. Besides the special theme of CHItaly 2023, the workshop proposal can focus on all aspects of HCI:

  • Crossing HCI and AI
  • Fundamentals of HCI
  • Interactive Environments
  • Interaction Techniques, Modalities and Devices
  • Applications of HCI

Workshops in CHItaly are co-located events that are held the day before the main conference starts (20  September). They represent forums where specific topics relevant to CHItaly get discussed.

Workshop proposals

Workshop proposals will be reviewed according to quality criteria, which consider the relevance of workshop proposals for CHItaly 2023, their potential of gathering quality contributions, and their review process.  All workshops will be half-day.

Structure of the proposal

The workshop proposal should be organized as follows:

  • Workshop title
  • Workshop acronym (if any)
  • Workshop edition and, if not on the first one, previous venues, number of attendees, and links to the websites
  • List of organizers (with a short bio) and main contact person
  • Motivation and objectives
  • List of topics
  • Target audience and expected number of attendees
  • Papers Review process (if any): the strategy used to collect contributions (such as online conference management systems or submitting by emails to the workshop chairs, etc.), minimum numbers of reviews, …
  • Workshop setting (paper presentations, discussions, group works, …)
  • Dedicated proceedings (if any): type of papers, reviewing process, venue (Journal special issue, CEUR-WS, …)
  • PC tentative list

Submission and review process

Workshop proposals, in PDF format (no specific template is required), must be uploaded via Easy Chair ( by selecting the Track “Workshop Proposals.

We encourage both researchers and industry practitioners to submit workshop proposals and suggest involving organizers from different institutions, bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic. We welcome workshops with a creative structure that may attract various types of contributions and may ensure rich interactions.

The organizers of accepted workshops will prepare a workshop website containing the call for papers and detailed information about the workshop organization and timeline. They will be responsible for their own publicity and reviewing processes.

Finally, a paper describing each accepted workshop will be included in the main conference Proceedings (submission deadline, format and requirements will be defined later).
