Name:Human-Work Interaction Design (HWID 2021)
Description:Call for Paper Human Work Interaction Design 2021 (HWID’21) – Artificial Intelligence and Designing for Positive Work Experiences in Low Desire Society Working Conference of the IFIP WG 13.6 Human Work Interaction Design Beijing, China – May 15-16, 2021 In continuation with the series of the Human Work Interaction Design (HWID) working conferences, this sixth edition’s theme is Artificial Intelligence and Designing for Positive Work Experiences in the ‘Low Desire’ Society. THEME, SCOPE, AND FOCUS HWID has been endeavouring to enhance the positive work experiences at workplaces by providing employees pleasurable and meaningful user experiences via the tools used at work. HWID’21 directs attention to the ‘low desire’ phenomenon, which is that people have lower desire for success, no ambitions, needs, or expectations, they push back against working around the clock, avoid conflicts, yearn to be free of strong feelings, and do not to take anyone or anything too seriously. HWID’21 attempts to look into the relationship between happiness and IT-enabled overworking, the resulting work experiences, and how to provide solutions from the perspective of Human Work Interaction Design. Artificial intelligence (AI) is making a difference to the workplace and complicating the situation further. On one hand, AI replace human workers by working faster with fewer errors than humans, which enable AI to do many of the boring and redundant jobs. On the other hand, many organisations are already beginning to use the AI as a design element to enhance human intelligence, and design positive experiences in the workplace. As a result, there are growing concerns that AI will take away jobs from humans. The theme of HWID’21 emphasizes the insights into the relationship between low desire and work experience, and how AI will moderate their relationship because parts of the work might be taken away by AI. Examples of relevant questions include: Is the ‘low desire’ phenomenon making work less interesting? How to improve work experience supported by AI? How to support the symbiosis of human and AI in workplace through HWID? How to maintain work motivation? How to evaluate the impact of AI on work experience? How to address ethical factors (e.g. privacy, safety and equity) of using AI in the workplace? This working conference aims to answer these and more questions by involving professionals working in academia, national labs, and industry who are engaged in human work analysis and interaction design for the workplace. We will discuss tools, procedures, and professional competences needed to face issues and opportunities provided by AI in a Low Desire Society. SUBMISSIONS We invite two types of submissions: Full papers (max 15 pages, excluding references) and Poster submissions (max 4 pages, excluding references).
