The overall goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from across the CHI community to share their knowledge and build collaborations at the intersection of computational notebook and HCI research, focusing on both the effective design and effective use of interfaces and interactions within computational notebook environments. This includes innovating upon the computational notebook metaphor, designing new tools, interfaces, and interactions for use with computational notebooks, and more. We aim to pull expertise from across all fields of CHI to deliver novel research and generate open discussion about the current state of computational notebooks, how it can be improved from an HCI standpoint, and how these potential improvements can direct future research. To achieve this goal, we propose a full-day, hybrid workshop with discussions of challenges and opportunities, paper and demo presentations, lightning talks, and a keynote. Participants in this workshop will exchange ideas and help define a roadmap for future research at the intersection of HCI and computational notebook design.
