INTERACT workshops provide a one-day or two-day forum for participants to compare their experiences and explore research issues or topics of special interest to the HCI community.
Workshops should have specific objectives and address stimulating topics. See for example workshops in INTERACT 2019 (http://interact2019.org/workshops/), INTERACT 2015 (http://interact2015.org/program/workshops.html), and INTERACT 2013 (http://www.interact2013.org/Programme/Workshops). Workshop organisers will get an opportunity to present a summary of outcomes in a session during the conference.

A traditional workshop with paper presentations, followed by forum discussions and a shared poster for presentation during the conference
An interactive event, where participants work together on experimenting with or evaluating an artifact, and make a 360 degree video of the design or evaluation work highlights for presentation during the conference
A design workshop with focus on artefacts, with a gallery / showroom exhibition during the conference
Other, innovative formats of the workshop will also be of interest.
