Call for papers

The aim of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers from both industry and academia to discuss best practices as well as pitfalls of adoption and acceptance of interactive technologies in healthcare and to provide the Interact community with guidelines to inform future developments and implementation of  their interactive health systems. We welcome multi-disciplinary contributions from the many disciplines and approaches that intersect with interactive health technologies (e.g. engineering, computer sciences, (interactive) design, sociology, anthropology, psychology, neurosciences, cognitive sciences, communication science, cultural studies, nursing, fine and media arts, and law, etc.). You are welcome to submit a paper on one of the following topics:

  • Adoption and acceptance studies of interactive health technologies that expand upon TAM and UTAUT
  • Studies of adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies that are based on different models than TAM or UTAUT (e.g., the Task-Technology Fit Model)
  • Qualitative studies of adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies
  • Longitudinal studies of adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies
  • Studies that focus on a specific factor that affects adoption or acceptance of interactive health technologies (e.g., trust, privacy, control, aesthetics)
  • Position papers on the topic of adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies

Format

We welcome prospective participants to submit extended abstracts (max. 4 pages) covering any relevant topic (related to the problem statement on the homepage) addressing the adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies. In addition to papers presenting empirical research, we also welcome papers about new  theoretical perspectives, new methodological challenges, and design challenges related to interactive health technologies. The manuscripts should use the conference format. Please submit a PDF copy of your manuscript to s.benallouch@saxion.nl and l.vanvelsen@rrd.nl
