This document presents the one day insertable and implantable digital device workshop to be held at DIS 2016 on June 5th 2016. Insertables are a category of devices that go in, through or under the skin, such as implantable medical devices (IMDs) and emerging technologies such as magnets, RFID chips and NFC chips that are inserted under the skin. This workshop will provide an opportunity to gather attendees with an interest in insertables to move this emerging field forward. The workshop goal is to build a community and generate ideas regarding the use of insertables in HCI and propose future research directions.
