The second DESIRE conference on creativity and innovation in design is being
held at the Eindhoven University of technology, Netherlands on 19 to 21
September 2011, the theme of the conference is theory and practice of
creative processes in design. We expect all submissions to fit within this
broad theme, and our attendees come from a diversity of disciplines
including HCI, Cognitive Science, Psychology, Industrial, Graphic, and
Interaction Design, as well as others.

We especially invite those in industry to submit proposals and proposals
that specifically include industrial participants.  Creative submissions for
workshops and tutorials are welcome until March 15, 2011. The intended
length of the session can be either whole (7.5 hours) or half (3.5 hours)

A workshop is a gathering of people who are interested in a particular topic
that is new or developing or perhaps understudied. It offers an opportunity
to collaborate and discuss current trends and present findings. This
intimate gathering of people with similar research/practical interests can
help push forward a common agenda for action.  Often position papers are
written and presented in such venues, though we encourage creative formats
that accomplish the purposes of the workshop.  For workshops we will look
for the following criterion:

   - A plan for continuing the conversation past the workshop (i.e. further
   meetings, forums/blogs, or a special journal issue)

A tutorial is an opportunity for one person or a team of people to present
their ideas or facilitate a discussion or lesson on a topic on which they
have some experience or expertise. A tutorial is a great venue for talking
about methods, techniques, or tools as they apply to creativity, innovation,
or the world of design in general. For tutorials we will look for the
following criteria:

   - A well articulated lesson plan
   - Well stated desired outcomes (in terms of skills, knowledge, awareness

Contextual (non-blind) reviews will be conducted by at least 2 independent
reviewers. Of course we expect that at least one of the organizers should
have some experience in organizations similar meetings. Organizers of the
tutorials or workshops should submit the following in one PDF file with
appropriate section headings and a table of contents:

   - Short bios of the organizers (including experience/expertise with
   subject matter)
   - The call for participation for their event.
   - A timeline of the event
   - A plan for engaging participants
   - Supporting materials such as curricula, references, handouts.
   - Clearly articulated desired outcomes of the event.
   - Attendee feedback from previous events organized(as applicable)

We have extended the deadline until March 15 for proposals, and determined
organizers who have not-yet-fully-developed ideas not yet ready for
submission by the 15th should notify the co-chairs via email ASAP.

Co-chairs: Aaron Houssian & Ingrid Mulder (Delft University of Technology)
