Call for Participation
We invite position papers for the CHI 2016 Workshop on Inviscid Text Entry and Beyond. This one-day workshop will offer an interdisciplinary forum of discussion for both practitioners and academics interested in text entry in its many forms and varieties.
A particular interest this year is on exploratory work into inviscid text entry. In inviscid text entry, it is the the user’s creativity that is the text-creation bottleneck rather than the text entry interface (for more details, see this paper). We welcome early work into novel methods for very rapidly entering text, even if such methods currently are quite error-prone. We are also interested in experimental tasks and evaluation methodologies for inviscid text entry. Finally, we welcome topics going beyond entry speed, e.g. learning from a user’s prior successes or failures, supporting post-entry error-correction and formatting, and supporting entry of diverse types of text.
Participants will be selected on the basis of the quality of their position paper. At least one author must register and attend the workshop. Participants will be invited to present a position statement on at least one panel. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a demo and/or poster to present during an interactive Show-and-Tell session.
Researchers from both industry and academia with an interest in text entry are invited to submit a position paper. The paper should be at most four pages in the CHI Extended Abstracts format.
Participants will be selected on the basis of the quality of their position paper. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop and for one day of the conference itself.
More background information is available in the workshop proposal paper ().
