Call For Participation Wave #2:
Provocations & Works-in-Progress
Doctorial Consortium
Deadline for full submissions: 20 March 2017
The theme of DIS 2017 is bridging and connecting – across disciplines, practices, places and understandings. The most interesting things happen at edges and boundaries, and so the aim of the 2017 conference is to examine different approaches to framing knowledge about the design of interactive systems. As advancements in interactive technology continue to blur the demarcations between people and data, and between things and software, interaction designers and researchers are finding new ways to explore this evolving, interdisciplinary landscape. At DIS 2017 we shall consider the contrasts and commonalities that are central in shaping the landscape of emerging interaction paradigms.
The DIS 2017 conference will take place in Edinburgh, UK, 10-14th June 2017, hosted by the Centre for Interaction Design, Edinburgh Napier University.
Provocations & Works-in-Progress <>
The DIS 2017 Provocations and Works-in-Progress (PWiP) track is a format that allows authors to propose novel, in-progress and thought provoking research. The PWiP format is intended to facilitate discussion between authors and conference attendees. We particularly welcome design research contributions that value:
Novelty over evidence (You don’t need a user study!). Provocation over generalization (You don’t need to make everyone happy!). Design making over design guidelines (Why not show us, rather than tell?)
While PWiP submissions need not have reached the level of completion of Full Paper submissions, they should demonstrate a contribution in terms of research and/or design knowledge.
Provocations and Works-in-Progress Chairs: Shaun Lawson, Northumbria University. Preben Hansen, Stockholm University
Demos <>
The demos track invites interface or system demonstrations, novel gadgets, techno-craft, and other interactive experiences that critically or creatively explore the conference themes. The organizers seek contributions that rethink or challenge the Demo presentation format at the venue. For DIS 2017 we favour demos that in different ways involve and activate the DIS participants. We welcome work from a wide range of practitioners in areas such as HCI, Design and Digital media, including submissions from students and independent practitioners.
Demo Chairs: Erik Grönwall, IT University of Copenhagen. Ian Lambert, Edinburgh Napier University
Doctoral Consortium <>
The DIS 2017 Doctoral Consortium provides current doctoral candidates unique opportunities to present their projects to receive feedback from, and engage in exchanges with researchers and peers in design-related fields from around the world, in a stimulating, open, and safe environment.
Doctoral Consortium Chairs: David Benyon, Edinburgh Napier University. Paul Dourish, University of California, Irvine
DIS 2017 centres on designerly approaches to creating, deploying and critically reflecting on interactive systems. It is an interdisciplinary conference that encompasses how such systems are built, introduced and employed in a wide variety of socio-cultural contexts. We welcome a broad engagement with the field by inviting submissions that consider the following, from a diverse range of researchers and practitioners within the field of interactive systems design:
Design Methods and Processes: Methods, tools, and techniques for engaging people; researching, designing, and co-designing interactive systems; participatory design, design artefacts, research through design; documenting and reflecting on design processes etc.
Experience: Places, temporality, people, communities, events, phenomena, aesthetics, user experience, usability, engagement, empowerment, wellbeing, designing things that matter, diversity, participation, materiality, making, etc.
Application Domains: Health, ICT4D, children-computer interaction, sustainability, games/entertainment computing, digital arts, etc.
Technological Innovation (systems, tools, and/or artifact designs): Sensors and actuators, mobile devices, multi touch and touchless interaction, social media, personal, community, public displays etc.
