2nd call for submissions
Poetics and Praxis: Designing Pleasurable Products and Interfaces 2013
3rd  5th September 2013, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

We are excited to invite submissions for the 6th International conference
on Designing Pleasurable Products and Interfaces, hosted by Northumbria
University at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, UK 3rd  5th of
September 2013. DPPI is a leading venue for designers, artists,
psychologists, systems engineers, social scientists and many more to come
together to debate and define future design research and practice. This
year's conference is hosted by Northumbria University (UK) and will be
held on the riverbanks of the Tyne in the glorious BALTIC, Centre for
Contemporary Art between the 3-5 of September 2013. DPPI 2013 will also be
co-located with the first biannual Research Through Design conference:

This year's conference theme is Poetics and Praxis. With this year's theme
we wish to reflect on the great changes that have occurred in design
research, human-computer interaction and interaction design since the
first DPPI conference in 2003. We wish to celebrate the diversification
and growth of research studying and exploring the role of fun, enjoyment,
pleasure, intimacy and emotion as a central feature of the everyday
experience of products, services and technologies and as resources for new
design ideas. As an interdisciplinary venue, DPPI welcomes submissions
from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds including: design,
human-computer interaction, engineering, the arts and humanities, social
science and psychology. We call for the submission of a broad range of
research outcomes related to the experiential, emotional and aesthetic
qualities of design as it relates to graphical, tangible and wearable
interfaces. Specifically, however, we encourage submissions addressing the
diversity of poetics in design, such as:

* Desire
* Creativity
* Art
* Sexuality
* Spirituality
* Craft
* Tradition
* Talent
* Gaming
* Play
* Humour
* Embodiment
* Mythology
* Sublimity
* Utopianism

Papers published at DPPI 2013 are archival publications and therefore
represent a significant contribution to interaction design, product design
and human-computer interaction research and practice. Accepted papers will
be archived online in the ACM Digital Library:

All submissions should be formatted using the DPPI 2013 Word template:
c. Papers should be no longer than 10 pages. All submissions should be
anonymised for peer review and submitted via the DPPI precision conference
submission system (currently not open, but check the website again soon).

1st June 2013: Submission deadline
8th July 2013: Author notifications
24th July 2013: Camera-ready deadline
3rd-5th September 2013: DPPI 2013 conference

All papers will be rigorously double blind reviewed by members of the
conference programme committee and peer experts. The programme committee
may ask authors for specific changes as a condition of publication based
upon the reviews.
