”Privacy for a Networked World”: Bridging Theory and Design

As our lives are more commonly mediated by information technology, an
interactional perspective to how people find and construct privacy in
socio-technical interactions has proven effective as a starting point for
theoretical and empirical studies of privacy in everyday life in which online
interactions have a significant role.

Yet, there remain important open questions regarding how to translate results
based on this perspective into design practice. Addressing these questions
requires a greater sensitivity to when interactional privacy is applicable, a
better understanding of suitable research methods, and more effective means for
communicating results to the researcher and practitioner communities. The goal
of this workshop is to bring privacy theory and design together.

We seek participants from various domains for a multidisciplinary workshop to
share their knowledge and views of both the theory and design of interactional

Position papers are invited on the following topics:
(1) Theoretical and empirical study of interactional privacy.
(2) Ways of designing for interactional privacy.

Submitted position papers will be peer-reviewed by a workshop committee. The
organizers will disseminate the results at the CHI conference and plan to submit
a proposal for a special issue in a relevant journal in response to an open Call
for Papers.

Interested parties should submit a position paper of 2-4 pages, in the CHI Extended Abstracts format, to the EasyChair submission central at by Jan 26, 2011. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop and for one or more days of the CHI 2011 conference.


* EXTENDED submission deadline – Jan 26, 2011
* REVISED notification of acceptance – March 1, 2011
* Workshop at CHI 2011 – May 7, 2011
