Welcome and Opening Remarks (8:30 AM – 8:45 AM):
Organizers will lay out the schedule for the day and synthesize the major challenges identified by the position papers.
Introductory Round (8:45 AM – 9:30 AM):
Each participant is invited to prepare a short (2-3 minute) statement about their own research on users’ experiences of algorithms, or about what they see as the major challenges in this area.
Breakout Group 1: Working on the Grand Challenges (9:30 AM – 10:30 AM)
Using pre-sorted groups (based on the submissions), organizer “fire-starters” will work with participants to identify tractable entry points for studying grand challenges. (e.g., “What are the entry points for studying an experience with an algorithm?”).
Breakout Group 2: Project Development (10:45 AM – 12:00 PM)
Participants will self-select groups for the second breakout session based on the tractable entry points they find to be of interest in Round 1. Groups will use this time to incubate research ideas, focusing on how might we take action on the outputs of Round 1. At the end of the session, groups will report out on the projects they envision.
Summary and Discussion (End by 12:30):
