Workshop Call for Participation:

Theory and Method for Experience Centered Design

CHI 2006 - Montréal, Quebec, Canada  Sunday 23rd April 2006

In recent years the scope of human-computer interaction design has widened
to include concerns with fun, emotion, beauty, aesthetics and values.  There
is an increasing emphasis on holistic approaches to user experience and what
is now called experience design.  A number of frameworks and theoretical
approaches to experience design have been developed and a range of
methods and techniques have also been proposed. While there are
differences in these approaches there are also a number of similarities in that
they are all concerned with analysing sensations and emotions as well as
perceptions and behaviours.

This workshop will critically explore these approaches through discussions of
theory, method and case studies. Participants are invited to submit a two to
four-page position paper. Contributions may be outlines of a theoretical
position, examples of methods and techniques for experience design or case
studies. Participants who would like to attend without presenting a paper may
submit a one-page expression of interest.

The aims of the workshop will be to:
* map state of the art practice in experience design in terms of methods
and techniques
* chart similarities and differences in theoretical approaches
* identify future challenges and inform a research agenda.

Participants will be welcomed from a range of disciplines including: HCI,
Interaction Design, Experience Design, Digital Arts and Media, Psychology,
Sociology, Cultural Studies, Literary Studies, Art and Design Studies.
The submissions will be refereed by the organising committee. The
main criteria for selection are that the author has an original and
relevant contribution to make in terms of theory, method or case study. We
are very keen to promote discussion even if it means that only a subset of
participants make a formal presentation. Because of this, the format for the
day will be decided once we have reviewed the submissions.

Please send your position paper to [log in to unmask] by the 20th of
January  2006
