Workshop Website:

This one-day workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on UX, conducting mainly qualitative user studies for informing experience-centered design. We aim to get together different stakeholders in order to discuss and exchange experiences on how such study results should be presented and best communicated to both inspire and guide design. This workshop addresses, but is not limited to, the following topics:

-        Suitability of preparation and communication strategies for qualitative study results: How can findings from qualitative studies (e.g., from probes, experience samples, and self-reports) be processed and presented in a suitable way within an experience-centered design project? What advancements and innovative approaches have been explored and/or already applied in practice? What are the best and perhaps worst case examples from practice?
-        Extendability of qualitative UX study results with hard data: How can quantitative data (e.g., life-logs, psycho-physiological data, and sensor data) help to overcome the transition challenge, without being obtrusive and interfere with an open qualitative field approach?

The above topics of interest for the workshop can be further completed by a discussion on differences in diverse context settings. In addition, the transferability of UX study results needs to be re-thought and advanced on, in order to better support longitudinal research activities, and the transfer of UX changes over time to designers during design and possible use.

Papers will be reviewed by the program committee and will be selected according to their significance, the quality of the presentation, as well as the potential to stimulate discussion. The topics include, but are not limited to

-        Best practice examples of using qualitative user data in design, from a research and/or design perspective.
-        Reviews on tools, techniques, and methods used when designing for user experience in terms of their usefulness.

Workshop candidates are requested to send in a position statement (no longer than four A4 pages) about research with which they have been involved (related to the topics described above). Please email your paper, in PDF, to marianna.obrist [at]<> by March 23rd, 2012.
