Pilot Implementation:

Testing Human-Work Interaction Designs

31 August 2021, Bari, Italy

In conjunction with INTERACT 2021

Call for Papers

This workshop on pilot implementation has three main objectives:

  • To help mature pilot implementation as a technique for evaluating human-work interaction designs during the process of their development and implementation.
  • To collect case studies that analyze experiences – good and bad – with conducting and learning from pilot implementations.
  • To formulate a research agenda for future work on pilot implementations – addressing their strengths, limitations, conduct, impact, and so forth.

Pilot implementations are field tests of properly engineered, yet unfinished, systems. In contrast to lab tests, the users in a pilot implementation use the system for performing real work. In contrast to full-scale implementations, the objective of a pilot implementation is to learn. The workshop on pilot implementation aims to (a) help mature this technique for evaluating human-work interaction designs during the process of their development and implementation, (b) collect case studies that analyze experiences with conducting and learning from pilot implementations, and (c) formulate a research agenda for future work on pilot implementations – addressing their strengths, limitations, conduct, impact, and so forth. The target audience for the workshop is researchers and practitioners working on topics related to work analysis, interaction design, system-organization fit, organizational implementation, benefits realization, and in-the-wild evaluation.

The relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Sociotechnical aspects of user experiences in pilot implementation
  • Pilot implementation of digital twins system
  • Pilot implementation in virtual reality
  • Pilot implementation and issues of legacy systems and interoperability
  • Organizational alignment with pilot implementation
  • Making sense of pilot implementation testing data with information visualisation
  • End-User Development in pilot implementation
  • Cognitive breakdowns in remote pilot implementation tests

For further information, please read the workshop description paper.

Submissions

Please submit your position paper of 4 pages in the Springer LNCS format to any of the organizers, or to tc.digi (at) cbs.dk.
