Workshop: Co-design: Practices, Challenges and Lessons Learned -- At
MobileHCI 2008, September 2-5, 2008 in Amsterdam. 

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION (extended deadline) 

This workshop is about practices of co-design. The goals of this
workshop are: to share experiences from diverse practices, to discuss
benefits and challenges, and to jointly articulate lessons learned. We
are interested in all sorts of efforts of researchers and designers to
cooperate constructively with end-users and to let them influence our
projects. Ideally, end-users are involved throughout a project and have
active and diverse roles. With co-design we mean to include: user
involvement, human-centred design approaches and approaches to
constructively cooperating with customers, with people with technical
backgrounds and with other stakeholders.

Within the scope of the MobileHCI 2008 conference we will focus on
co-design for developing mobile products or services and user evaluation
in (mobile) contexts. Co-design for mobile applications is especially
challenging because people use these in different and unpredictable
contexts and for communication and cooperation, which introduces all
sorts of social-cultural issues.

Interested in participation? We invite practitioners to write and talk
about their practices and about challenges which they encountered. We
are interested in receiving positioning papers that describe co-design
practices and in critical reflection on co-design practices, e.g. in
comparisons between approaches or in combinations of approaches.
Positioning papers (of approx 2 pages) can be sent to Marc Steen
(, before June 5, 2008 (extended deadline). The
organizers will select a maximum 15 people to participate and will
notify them of acceptance before June 10, 2008. At least one author of
each accepted paper needs to register for the workshop and for the

Organizers: Jenny de Boer, TNO Information and Communication Technology;
Liliane Kuiper-Hoyng, TNO Information and Communication Technology;
Froukje Sleeswijk Visser, Delft University of Technology; and Marc
Steen, TNO Information and Communication Technology.
