ACM Trans Computer-Human Interaction Special Issue on Sustainable HCI through Everyday Practices (Feb 2012)

ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (TOCHI)
Special Issue on “Sustainable HCI through Everyday Practices”
Deadline for Abstract Submissions: February 1, 2012
Website: http://tochi.acm.org/si/sustainable.shtml

In this special issue, we build on such works to broaden the scope of investigation for sustainable HCI from individual behaviors to everyday social and cultural practices. Consideration of the complex interweaving of social, cultural, material and mental components of everyday consumption activities has much to offer sustainable HCI and interrelated work addressing pressing social and environmental issues. In studying people’s everyday practices and how they relate to sustainability, it becomes clear that everyday life is not only a locus of intervention for sustainable HCI; it equally raises issues about and provides opportunities for how HCI can and should approach sustainability.
