The Second Workshop on Intelligent and Interactive Writing Assistants

co-located with

The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2023)

The purpose of this interdisciplinary workshop is to facilitate discussion around writing assistants, thereby enhancing our understanding of their usage in writing process and predicting the consequences. To this end, we strive to bring together researchers from the human-computer interaction (HCI) and natural language processing (NLP) communities by alternating our workshop venue between HCI and NLP every year.

This year, the workshop will consist of two parts. In the first part, to understand the landscape of writing support tools, participants will collaboratively create a taxonomy of writing assistants. In the second part, based on topical categories identified during the first part, participants will collectively discuss the current status of writing assistants and potential research agendas.

This year the workshop will be held on Sunday, 23rd April at CHI 2023 in Hamburg, Germany.

The workshop will be in-person only.
