We are very happy to announce the Call for Papers of the 2nd Workshop on Human Computer Interaction Perspectives on Industry 4.0: http://cms.igd-r.fraunhofer.de/hcii40/call-for-participation/, co-organised by Victoria Pammer, Mario Ähnelt, Ralf Klamma, Tobias Ley, Ronald Maier, Thomas Meneweger, Manfred Tscheligi and Daniela Wurhofer.
Today we are facing a new era of industrial automation and interconnection which drives the transition of human workplaces. New technologies but also novel business processes lead to a shift of worker related requirements at the data-intensive manufacturing workplace on the shop floor or in knowledge-intensive maintenance field operations. HCI research is already dealing with these new challenges by developing and providing practical assistance solutions which bring together again the power of industrial automation with the flexibility of human intelligence.
This workshop aims to pick up and present examples of best practice and lessons learned from researching and rolling out novel methods and technologies for worker-focused assistance under industrial conditions.
All accepted contributions will be listed on a workshop website, and accepted papers will be collected in CEUR WS Proceedings if the authors agree. Selected contribution may be invited to be published in the conference proceedings; and additionally will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue in the Interaction Design and Architecture(s) Journal (IxD&A) in 2018.
