        Subject: 2nd CFP: CHI 2015 Workshop Gamifying Research - new deadline Jan 5, 2015

CHI 2015 Workshop
Gamifying Research: Strategies, Opportunities, Challenges, Ethics
!EXTENDED DEADLINE: January 5, 2015!

 From social sciences to biology, gamified applications and games are 
being increasingly used for research: as “petri dishes” for observing 
behavioral dynamics; as sources of ecologically valid and/or “big” user 
behavior data; as crowdsourcing tools for research tasks; or as means to 
motivate. However, it also entails many open questions and deep ethical 
ramifications. This one-day workshop, co-located with CHI 2015 in Seoul, 
convenes HCI and game researchers as well as industry practitioners and 
ethicists to advance the practice of using gamified systems and games as 
research contexts and tools in an ethical manner.

# Topics of Special Interest #
* Methods of studying gamified systems and games
* Application of gamified systems and games as research contexts and tools
* Utility and opportunities of gamified systems and games in research 
and data gathering
* Challenges in gamifying research; design strategies for reducing bias 
and improving quality
* Ethical issues in gamifying research

# Submission #
Interested authors should submit a 3-4 page position paper in the CHI 
extended abstract format or a presentation to

committee will review submissions and select up to 20 based on 
relevance, quality, and diversity of inputs. At least one author of each
