==SIG Objectives==
+
-
The intention of this SIG is to raise the awareness,
+
-
interest and considered use of visions and visioning in
+
-
the CHI community. We are interested in mapping out
+
-
existing visions, which can be of use in CHI and
+
-
discussing the need for new visions. In this we aim to
+
-
critique where visions have been used in foresight
+
-
activities. We also seek to explore how and where the
+
-
visioning process can be of use, before, during and
+
-
after research is undertaken. Following the discussion
+
-
approach in (Reeves, S. 2012. Envisioning Ubiquitous
+
-
Computing, Proc. CHI 2012, pp. 1573-1582) we aim to better understand the role of
+
-
visions in HCI.
+
-
 
+
-
The overall objective of this SIG is to better understand
+
-
if visions can be of use in CHI, is a well framed vision a
+
-
scientific contribution in its own right and should CHI
+
-
stimulate the presentation, discussion and publication
+
-
of visions. What are the appropriate venue for visions?
+
-
Based on the feedback from this SIG, we expect to
+
-
make proposals for how CHI might embrace visions.
+
-
 
+
-
==Program==
+
-
For this 90-minute SIG we have five phases. The first
+
-
phase occurs before the SIG itself where a [[Main Page|website and
+
-
wiki]] are established to support the discussion at the
+
-
SIG. Authors of 2-3 leading visions will present their
+
-
visions and why they think that visions were or remain
+
-
relevant, how they influence their research process,
+
-
etc. (30 minutes overall). Following this, a plenary
+
-
discussion or round table discussions (depending on
+
-
number of attendees) on the questions stated in the
+
-
section on SIG Objectives (45 minutes), concluding
+
-
with a discussion of next steps: how to provide a forum
+
-
for visions at CHI (15 minutes). Following this, the fifth
+
-
phase may take the form of a new space within CHI for
+
-
visions, an online forum, or an open handbook on
+
-
visions and visioning to inspire and inform research.
+
-
 
+
-
==Audience==
+
-
As time has shown, radical futurists and visionaries
+
-
have come from a broad spectrum of society. As such,
+
-
we aim to invite artists, senior industrial researchers,
+
-
science fiction writers, and senior academics along with
+
-
more junior academics that actively engage in the pre-
+
-
SIG phase. The SIG will welcome those seeking to
+
-
advance existing or new visions, those with a skeptical
+
-
view of the usefulness of visions, to those actively
+
-
involved in creating new visions outside of CHI.
+
-
 
+
