> ACM SIGCHI Workshop #2: Challenges in the Multicultural HCI Development
> Environment
> Sunday and Monday, 2-3 April 2000.
> 
> The effort to ease creation of multi-cultural systems is being
> undertaken by an increasingly broad community of application designers
> and developers. This task is not trivial given lack of tools, knowledge
> and standards in the area of cross-cultural human computer interaction
> (HCI). 
> 
> This workshop, immediately after the International Unicode Conference in
> Amsterdam, and as part of the ACM SIGCHI Conference in The Hague,
> explores the challenges in the multicultural HCI development environment
> and ways to overcome them. We will explore the cultural and linguistic
> issues of:
> 
> キ Textual display design
> キ Visual design
> キ Intelligent agents
> キ Social Interfaces
> キ Learning modalities
> キ Information retrieval
> キ Language handling
> キ Distributed systems
> キ Integration of Unicode features
> 
> The workshop will focus on how frameworks and methodologies can aid in
> providing modular multicultural interaction design and seamless cultural
> and linguistic feature integration. 
> 
> Participants will be selected based on position papers or known
> experience and demonstrated ability to contribute to this area. Please
> submit a position paper, 2-4 pages long that outlines  your views on the
> workshop theme and reasons for your interest in the topic by February
> 10. Position papers should be submitted directly to the workshop
> organizers. Submitters will be notified by 20 February 2000 at the
> latest.
> Participants will be expected to come to the workshop with examples of
> frameworks and methodologies, and we will then work together to
> understand and identify the common experiences and major issues in the
> field. 
> 
> The output of the workshop will be recommendations for a Framework for
> Modular Multicultural Interaction Design and recommended Methodologies
> for Effective Multi-cultural Feature Integration, to be published in a
> SIGCHI Bulletin after the Conference.
>
