Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss focussed topics in an informal setting. They can concentrate on specific research topics, be devoted to application issues, or be used to discuss specific issues that are of concern to the HCI community. Workshops will run in the two days preceding the main conference track (i.e. on either 13th or 14th July 2015). Following the workshop proposal review process we accepted thirteeen workshops listed below. Please check the individual websites of each workshop for contribution submission deadlines and processes.
