New Challenges for Participation in Participatory Design
in Family, Clinical, and Other Asymmetrical Non-Work settings

1-day Workshop, Monday, 24 August 2009, Uppsala, Sweden.
As part of INTERACT 2009

Deadline for submissions: May 30, 2009.

Organized by:

Olav W. Bertelsen, Aarhus University, Denmark.
Per-Olof Hedvall, CERTEC, Sweden.

Workshop Theme:

Participatory design has taken as its point of view that designers and  
users should engage in an equal language game. It has been the  
ambition that by making certain conditions for the design activities  
equality in design was possible. Whether or not this ideal has ever  
been achieved is a big question, but when we take PD to operate in  
contexts where some of the involved users are weak, ill, or have  
disabilities, we are clearly confronted with a situation where this  
assumed equality is no longer an ideal that can be reached.

About the Workshop:

The workshop explores participatory design in non-work settings with  
heterogeneous user constellations (e.g. patients, doctors nurses,  
relatives), and asymmetrical relations between users and designers and  
among users. The workshop will be organized as a mix between  
presentations, discussions and various breakout activities, on  
established, as well as novel theories, methods and techniques that  
can accommodate for the new design challenges.

How To Participate:

Participants will be selected based on the review of the submissions  
by a program committee. Submissions can be either workshop papers or  
position statements. Accepted submissions will be published in the  
printed workshop proceedings.
