“Out of Your Mind!? Embodied Interaction in Sports”
– two-day Workshop at CHI2021, Yokohama, Japan.

This workshop aims at exploring how interactive systems can enhance sports experiences beyond performance – highlighting an Embodied Interaction perspective. Activities include hands-on discussion on state-of-the-art research on embodied interaction and sports in HCI, and developing tangible concepts that enhance sports experiences.

Topics of interest include:

  • Sensory Augmentation
    • Motor Memory
    • Sonification
    • EMS
    • Augmented Experiences
    • Wearables
    • Multimodal Interaction

To apply to the workshop, submit your answers to the questions on the Google form, also linked on our website. Here, you should address 3 good and 3 bad examples of embodied interaction in sports arguing the choice of the examples (max 1 good example created by the author). Responses will be reviewed by the workshop organizers, and selected for inclusion based on quality, novelty, and potential to engender discussion, while aiming for a balance of different perspectives. Accepted authors will be notified by February 28, 2021 and the list of participants will be posted on the website sports-hci.com. All participants must register for the workshop and for at least one day of the conference.
