5th – 8th November 2013
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 23rd September 2013
TwinTide Autumn Training School: Research Methods for Human-Computer Interaction (TUTOREM 2013)

Venue: Hotel Kompas, Bled, Slovenia ( http://www.kompashotel.com/index_en.php)
Website:  http://www.le.ac.uk/compsci/people/elaw/tutorem/


MAIN GOAL:
The overarching goal of TUTOREM is to improve participants’ understanding of significant research methods commonly or increasingly used in the field of HCI. Such an enhanced understanding will enable them to select and combine appropriate research methods for their specific HCI projects and to contextualise them without unintended impacts on validity. While we recognise the importance of theories that inform the development of research methods, due to the time constraint no session is dedicated to HCI theories. Nevertheless, relevant theoretical frameworks will be addressed in individual sessions of TUTOREM, which consist of lectures, workshops and discussions. In addition, student participants will collaboratively work in small groups on a mini-project with the topic identified by the School’s lecturers.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES:
Participants are expected to:
• develop a succinct overview of existing as well as emerging HCI research methods;
• explore the relations between quantitative and qualitative research methods and their synergy in different research studies (i.e. mixed-method approaches);
• gain knowledge and practical skills for several common, significant research methods in HCI, including experimental design, survey, statistical methods, interviews, and qualitative data analysis;
• learn about research methods with increasing use and interest in HCI, including ethnographic approaches and narrative-based methods;
• reflect on critical issues when applying research methods, including fundamentals for PhD studies and research ethics;
• expand research network of peers, laying the ground for future collaboration;

PARTICIPATION:
PhD students in HCI, who have a basic level of knowledge and skills in general research methods, including concepts in elementary statistics and experiences in user-based studies, and are at the first or second year of their doctoral studies, are eligible to apply for TUTOREM. The following documents are required for application:

• CV
• Supporting Statement (i.e., rationale for application, relevant background, list of publication, etc.)
• Recommendation letter from a supervisor
• Sources of funding
• Scholarship required (yes or no)

Successful candidates will be granted a scholarship of €300, which should be enough to cover the four-night accommodation (double room) and main meals during their stay in TUTOREM. Note that travel expenses will NOT be funded. All application documents should be sent as a zipped file labelled with your last name to Effie Law (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by 23rd September 2013 (Monday). Each application will be reviewed. Notification of acceptance will be mailed to each applicant by 30th September 2013 (Monday). Maximum 30 students will be accepted.

International Conference on Extended Arts (XARTS 2013)

From Virtual to Real
University of the Aegean, Department of Product and Systems Design Engineering, Syros, Greece  https://xarts2013.pns.aegean.gr/xarts2013-home-en
 
The extended use of digital technologies in physical, biological and artificial environments enables artists to design and implement new forms of Art. Scholars from all over the world will explore these extending possibilities during XARTS 2013 Summer School and Conference taking place in Syros island from 11-21 of July.
 
The Conference From Virtual to Real is part of this Summer School where researchers cooperating with the PLEIAS and the Planetary Collegium Consortia will present their last findings in Extended Arts subjects. This call for projects is intended to the artistic and scientific communities interested in Extended Arts. The topics in XARTS 2013 International Conference include but are not confined to the following areas:

History of Extended Arts

Digital Art was first confined in the research of specificity aiming at defining a domain that would be recognised as such by the artistic community. Very soon however, the artists explored hybrid solutions to integrate digital media in real or artificial spaces, targeting later the seamless integration of Human, Digital and Physical Activities in Holistic and Systemic Environments. We are interested in papers relating the passages from one era to the next, analysing the works of art and the artistic motivations with a critical thought.

Theory on Extended Arts
Convergence of the New Media with Bioart, 3D Fabrication and Prototyping, Nanotechnology, Physical Computing, is examined in this conference session. Among the disciplines concerned, Cybernetics, Biosemiotics and Radical Constructivism are confronted in a pluridisciplinary approach. We are interested in papers proposing theoretical models explaining such a convergence, examining multiple parameters of this integration process.

Artistic Practice
Digital Art, Interactive Art, Immersive Art, Open Art. Extended Arts, a lot of terms aiming at describing the artistic practice are proposed by artists and scholars in the field. In this session we expect papers that describe recent art works (from 2000-now) authored by the artists themselves or the producers of their works in a quest of self analysis of the artistic practice, no matter if it takes a distant approach or not.

Research in progress
Ongoing research from undergraduates, graduates/postgraduates and professionals

International Conference on Extended Arts (XARTS 2015)
Re-Designing Interactive Art
10-11 July, 2015
University of the Aegean, Department of Product and Systems Design Engineering, Syros, Greece
 

Short Paper (Extended Abstract- 500 words maximum): June 25, 2015

The extended use of digital technologies in physical, biological and artificial environments enables artists to design and implement new forms of Art. Scholars from all over the world will explore these extending possibilities during XARTS 2015 Summer School and Conferences taking place in Syros island from 9-19 of July. The Conference From Virtual to Real is part of this Summer School where researchers from all over the world will present their last findings in Extended Arts subjects. This call for projects is intended to the artistic and scientific communities interested in Extended Arts. The topics in XARTS 2015 International Conference include but are not confined to the following areas:

  • Production issues in re-implementation of existing works of Interactive Art
    Interactive Art is volatile. After a festival or temporary exhibitions the work of art is deconstructed. We can only trace it via design drawings and audiovisual memories. It is often related to the exhibition context. We try to investigate in this session the production issues arising when the same interactive art concept is implemented in different contexts.
  • Artistic Practice Re-Designing an interactive artwork from an artistic point-of-view may be very challenging. In this session we expect papers that describe recent interactive art works (from 2000-now) re-designed by the artists themselves in a quest of self analysis of the artistic practice, no matter if it takes a distant approach or not.
  • Institutional issues Such a volatile artistic practice poses special problems to curators, archivists, art critics and theorists. How to preserve the interactive artworks in museums and art collections? How to exhibit an already exhibited interactive work in a new context? Is it possible to maintain multiple copies of interactive artworks in different museums and art collections? Is there such a concept as the permanent interactive art collection?
  • Research Issues Interactive Art inspired collaborations between artists and engineers, pushing artistic and scientific research to new edges. This session aims at understanding the collaborative process via case studies of applied and fundamental research reported by developers of interactive art projects that may be seen as artworks and platforms for artistic practice at the same time.
