This workshop is highly interdisciplinary and may be of interest to members
of this group. The workshop organizers are also
working towards journal and book publications in addition
to the workshop proceedings.

"Misuse and Abuse of Interactive Technologies"
CHI 2006 Workshop
====================================================================
Date: Saturday, April 22 (Full day)
Venue: Montreal, Canada, http://www.chi2006.org/
Submission Deadline: January 10

Workshop Web-site: www.agentabuse.org
====================================================================


So far research into the user's emotional engagement in computing has
addressed pleasurable affective states such as enjoyment, fun, and
playfulness. Abuse: The darker side of human-computer interaction at
Interact 2005 explicitly addressed negative emotions in computing. It
was concluded in this workshop that interface design and metaphors can
inadvertently rouse more than user dissatisfaction and angry reactions:
they can promote a wide range of 'abusive' behaviors that are directed
not only towards the machine and the interface but also towards other
people (http://www.agentabuse.org/papers.htm).

The purpose of this interdisciplinary workshop is to explore interactive
systems as targets and medium of disinhibited behavior. The goal is to
bring together researchers who have encountered instances of negative
user behaviors in HCI, who might have given some thought to why and how
such behaviors happen, and who have some ideas on how pro-active, agent
based interfaces, should respond. Workshops discussions should provide a
foundation for understanding the misuse and abuse of interactive
technologies and for developing a systematic approach to designing
interfaces that counter negative behaviors.

Some of the larger questions and issues we hope to address during the
workshop are the following:
 - How does the misuse and abuse of the interface affect the user's
computing experience?
 - How do different interface metaphors (embodied conversational
characters, windows, desktops) shape a propensity to misuse or abuse the
interface?
 - What design factors trigger or restrain disinhibited behaviors?
 - How does computer-mediated abuse differ from other forms of abuse,
e.g., the abuse of people, symbols, flags sacred objects, and personal
property? Is it appropriate to use the term abuse in this context?
 - Putdowns and other forms of verbal abuse are a part of our everyday
social world. It is something we try to diffuse and avoid. How can we
develop embodied conversational characters that learn to constrain users
who engage in verbal abuse? Do we even need to diffuse it?
 - Is the act of verbally abusing a conversational agent anti-social
behavior or is it the expression of social norms reflecting an
asymmetric power distribution where the user is the master and the agent
the slave?

As the workshop is intended to be interdisciplinary, we hope the
questions and methodologies discussed will be of interest to a broad
audience, including social scientists, psychologists, computer
scientists, and those involved in the game industry. To help inform our
questioning, we also welcome philosophical and critical investigations
into the misuse and abuse of computing artifacts.

Prospective participants should send a 2/4-page position paper
(following the CHI extended Abstract format www.chi2006.org/ceaf.php) to
