Evaluating research artefacts is an important step to showcase the validity of a chosen approach. The CHI community has developed and agreed upon a large variety of evaluation methods for HCI research; however, sometimes those methods are not applicable or not sufficient. This is especially the case when the contribution lies within the context of the application area, such as for research in sustainable HCI, HCI for development, or design fiction and futures studies. In this SIG, we invite the CHI community to share their insights from projects that encountered problems in evaluating research and aim to discuss solutions for this difficult topic. We invite researchers from all areas of HCI research who are interested to engage in a debate of issues in the process of validating research artefacts.
