The 11th edition of the Workshop on Aspects of Human-Computer Interaction for the Social Web (WAIHCWS'20) focuses on the theme: Digital well-being and the healthy use of technologies. The event aims to bring discussions about studies towards a more informative, reliable, fair, transparent and democratic Web. We encourage submissions of papers that discuss techniques for combating dissemination of fake news on social networks - especially in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as methods and tools for interaction in virtual work and learning environments. Inter or transdisciplinary works with human and social sciences in the mentioned contexts are also encouraged in this edition of WAIHCWS.
The theme represents an opportunity to analyze the advances achieved so far and the challenges that still need to be overcome in the Social Web by considering the new technologies, the new ways of interaction and information dissemination, and the current moment of social distance due the pandemic.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We invite works at all stages of development, describing research results, empirical results, applied systems and proposals that address aspects of the Social Web with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction. Positions and theoretically based discussions on the topics of interest are also welcome.
Submissions must be written in English or Portuguese, with a limit of 8 (eight) pages (including figures, tables, diagrams, references and attachments), following the template for SBC papers. Submissions must include unpublished results.
Submissions must be anonymous. Authors should submit a PDF version of their paper through the JEMS system.
Submissions will be reviewed by at least two researchers in the field. In case of disparity and inconsistency between opinions, a third researcher will be invited to carry out the evaluation. A meta-review process may also support the final coordination decision. If the submission is accepted, the authors should consider the reviewers' comments to prepare the final version of the paper
To have your paper published, at least one of the authors of accepted papers must register at IHC 2020 and present the work during the workshop - which this year will take place in a virtual mode, with the format, tools and time to be defined by the coordination. The accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the event, which will be made available online at SBC Open Lib (SOL), the SBC digital content portal, in series Proceedings of the Workshop on Aspects of Human-Computer Interaction for the Social Web, ISSN 2596-0296.
