Position Papers (Chairs: Conor Linehan, Ben Kirman, Dan O’Hara) For the first time, we invite the submission of Position Papers to British HCI. This stream is intended to provide authors with a route to speaking at the conference without the requirement to write and submit a full, conventional technical paper. We hope this stream will widen participation in the conference to include people who do not carry out design, development and evaluation work, but whose research nonetheless concerns understanding and exploring the interaction with technology. This stream may be attractive to a wide range of researchers, for example: those from related disciplines such as art, humanities, and social sciences; those whose work is provocative or critical, and does not fit easily within the format expected of a full HCI paper; those who have recently published exciting work at international conferences, and want to discuss that work with the community, but would normally be barred from doing so by copyright conflicts. Both Full and Position Papers will be given equal time for oral presentation in the main track of the conference. Position papers are maximum 2 pages long in eWiC format. Submissions must be anonymised and should follow the eWiC template. Paper presentation information and LaTeX templates can also be found on the BCS site. Papers must be submitted via EasyChair here by 5:00 p.m GMT on Mar 2nd 2015. Position papers will be peer reviewed by the conference program committee and published in the BCS e-WIC repository and in the ACM Digital Library.
