Accepted Workshops

The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction. Workshops are held the weekend before the start of the conference, on Saturday and Sunday, 4-5 May 2019. Workshops are a gathering place for attendees with shared interests to meet in the context of a focused and interactive discussion. They are a great way to discuss emerging and important topics with leaders in the field and a great place to connect with people working in similar areas.

Workshops are organized independently by people from academy and industry. Submission information can be found on the websites of the workshops.

We encourage everyone participating in CHI 2019 to consider attending workshops.

W05: Technology to Mediate Role Conflict in Motherhood

Workshop/Symposia Website

Today, new mothers are experiencing parenthood differently. Digital resources can provide a wealth of information, present opportunities for socialising, and even assist in tracking a baby’s development. However, women are often juggling the role of motherhood with other commitments, such as work. The aim of this workshop is to understand the digital support needs and practices during parenthood from the perspective of employed mothers. We are interested in exploring the ways that women utilise the technologies which have been designed to support mothers, and specifically, the importance of work-life balance and the various roles that mothers play. There is a need to better understand and identify which technologies are being used to support working women through their motherhood journey, and ensure a healthy transition to support women’s changing identities.
