iHDI 2020: Interdisciplinary Workshop on Human-Drone Interaction
Drones are becoming ubiquitous. Current applications include logistics, construction, security, emergencies, and photography. Emerging applications like exercise, companionship, and tangible user interfaces are active research topics within the CHI community.
Knowledge from a wealth of disciplines can inform new drone applications; and communication between different disciplines (design, engineering, social sciences, humanities…) is essential. To this end, the Interdisciplinary Workshop on Human-Drone Interaction (iHDI 2020) aims to intertwine diverse perspectives, as a platform for researchers and practitioners who learn from each other.
We seek high quality contributions exploring HDI from a plethora of perspectives, including but not limited to: empirical research, engineering, design, theory, art, and opinions.
Examples for topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
– Novel HDI experiences
– Theoretical and philosophical arguments on concepts and contexts
– Transferring learnings between HDI and other HCI or extracurricular topics
– Policy and regulatory issues
– Accessible HDI
– Prototyping and development tools
– Ethnographic fieldwork with users, developers, and bystanders
