Call for Papers

For participation, you can either upload a position paper (maximum 3 pages excluding references; UbiComp Submission Template) on the PCS website or submit a lighter online form on the workshop website to share a repair-related provocation. The accepted papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library and supplemental proceedings of the conference. The paper could depict a repair scenario involving a smart device, ranging from troubleshooting issues, lacking proper guidance or parts, successful or unsuccessful repair attempts, or even a fictional repair story illustrating a specific perspective on smart technology repair.

A diverse group of complementary participants will be selected based on their prior experience of IoT repair and sustainability (or related areas) and the quality/relevance of their submission to the workshop theme.

Upon acceptance, it is mandatory that at least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop.
