We invite researchers and practitioners to bring a plurality of perspectives related to the use of notions in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). How could a change of notions affect our perspective on designing technology for people? The aim of the full day workshop is to apply a clothesline approach in order to identify and sort, wash and tumble, some of the notions used in the community, and air them for better alternatives. We will do this by 1) identifying why certain notions are or have been problematic, 2) elaborating them to raise awareness of their possible interpretations and implications in order to find alternatives that are usable across different HCI settings. The outcome of the workshop is to elucidate how notions and their connotations frame the HCI practice.
