August 13 is the final submission date for exploratory papers, industry
cases, the industry pitchfest,

workshops and tutorials.

Submission details are available from the conference website Submissions should follow the PDC Submission template but
only exploratory
papers need to be anonymous

Exploratory papers: (short paper – maximum 4 pages) Exploratory papers
should present ideas that
could benefit from discussion with members of the Participatory Design
community. These papers may

Industry Day Presentations: (1-2 page proposals)  There are two types of
submissions for this new,
special one day Industry Day Track:
Industry Cases - that report on the use of participatory design (PD)
methods, tools, and/or practices
within commercial, non-profit and governmental organisations, and,
PDC Pitch Fest Presentations – where representatives from not-for-profit and
academic sectors “pitch”
design ideas in a short, lively format.  This is an opportunity to present
participatory design research,
concepts and ideas to a panel of ‘industry’ representatives.
Submissions for Industry Day do not require academic reviewing and will be
reviewed instead by an
industry panel. If you have any questions, please contact

Artefacts, posters, products, interactive demonstrations: (2 page proposal)
Works may include projects,
techniques, and products developed with a commitment to the principles and
philosophy of
Participatory Design and they may incorporate any forms or genres of
technologies or digital media (e.g., sound, still/moving images, touch,
space, text, etc.). Successful
proposals will be presented during a session where participants can interact
with presenters and
artefacts. The proposal should include title, goals, technique, relevance to

Doctoral consortium: (2 page proposal) Full day session. The doctoral
consortium is intended for PhD

extensive feedback from the

selection will been based on
application submissions. The proposal should give an overview of the PhD
project, including research
