Symposium: Asia Pacific HCI and UX Design Symposium 2015 (APCHIUX 2015)

We are living in an interconnected world where data flows abundantly, pervasively, and instantaneously, facilitated by the interaction between humans and technology. These interactions are complex and diverse in the multicultural Asia Pacific region, where designers face challenges such multifaceted requirements, technological compatibility issues, and social barriers to ICT use. This one full-day symposium aims to bring forth issues related to HCI and UX in the Asia Pacific region. It will consist of a keynote presentation, position papers presentations, interactive workshop, and an optional networking dinner.

Perspectives will be given by industry and academia with accepted papers on the following questions:

Workshop: Ethical Encounters: HCI Research in Sensitive and Complex Settings

HCI research is moving into increasingly sensitive and challenging settings. New technologies are now being designed and evaluated with vulnerable or marginalized participants in contexts that can be emotionally challenging. Research conducted in these sensitive and emerging areas can produce complex ethical dilemmas. This one-day workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers to share experiences about ethical challenges encountered in HCI research conducted in sensitive settings. From this workshop we aim to develop an edited collection of case studies to inform good practice for future HCI research.

Researchers working in sensitive settings will present their position papers that describe experiences such as:

Workshop: Science Fiction and the Reality of HCI: Inspirations, Achievements or a Mismatch

This workshop will explore and exchange ideas on topics emerging from both science fiction and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). In particular, the main aims are to discuss the contradictions between science fiction and HCI, explore and elaborate on various methodologies that can be used to evaluate fictional content, and how fiction can be used to inspire design.
