Automation has been permeating our everyday lives in various facets. Given both the ubiquity and, in many cases, the indispensability of ubiquitous automated systems, creating engaging experiences with them becomes increasingly relevant. This workshop provides a platform for researchers and practitioners working on (semi-)automated systems and their user experience and allows for cross-discipline networking and knowledge transfer. In a keynote talk, paper presentations, discussions, and hands-on sessions, the participants will explore and discuss user engagement with automation for operation, appropriation, and change.
The overall objective of this workshop is an exploration of the interplay of engagement and automation from a multi-disciplinary perspective. In line with this overall goal, it will pursue the following sub-goals:
- Uncovering the dimensions of automation engagement,
- Reflecting on major challenges of automation engagement,
- Identifying promising future research topics in the field of automation experience in the form of project ideas and aresearch agenda, and
- Forming a multi-disciplinary network of automation experience researchers.
