DESIGNING AROUND PEOPLE:
8th CAMBRIDGE WORKSHOP ON UNIVERSAL ACCESS AND ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY (CWUAAT) University of Cambridge, United Kingdom, 21st - 23rd March 2016

“Designing Around People” is the eighth of a series of workshops started in 2002 that represent the inclusive design community. CWUAAT is a unique multidisciplinary workshop, where designers, computer scientists, engineers, architects, ergonomists, ethnographers,  policymakers and user communities meet.

In the context of developing demographic changes leading to  greater numbers of older people and people with disabilities, the general field of inclusive design research strives to relate the capabilities of the population to the design of products. Inclusive populations of older people contain a greater variation in sensory, cognitive and physical user capabilities. These variations may be co-occurring and rapidly changing, leading to a demanding design environment. Inclusive Design Research involves developing methods, technologies, tools and guidance for supporting product designers and architects to design for the widest possible population for a given range of capabilities, within a contemporary social and economic context. Recent developments have seen a  wider demand for the techniques of inclusive interface design, particularly as a result of situational impairment in Human machine Interfaces for demanding workload applications such as Automotive and Aerospace.

We seek original research papers describing investigations within the following broad categories:

- RECONCILING USABILITY, ACCESSIBILITY AND INCLUSIVE DESIGN
- DESIGNING INCLUSIVE ASSISTIVE AND REHABILITATION SYSTEMS
- MEASURING PRODUCT DEMAND AND PEOPLES’ CAPABILITIES
- DESIGNING COGNITIVE INTERACTION  WITH EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
- DESIGNING INCLUSIVE ARCHITECTURE: BUILDINGS AND SPACES
- DATA MINING AND VISUALISING INCLUSION : USER PROFILING
- LEGISLATION, STANDARDS AND POLICY IN INCLUSIVE DESIGN
- SITUATIONAL INCLUSIVE INTERFACES: AUTOMOTIVE AND AEROSPACE

Deadline for submission of long and short papers, poster abstracts: 11 September, 2015

Notification of paper acceptance: 19 October, 2015

Deadline for camera-ready version of accepted papers: 19 November, 2015

Author and early academic registrations by 15 and 31 December, 2015

Student and late academic registrations by 15 February, 2016

CWUAAT Workshop: 21-23 March, 2016

Accepted long papers (6-10 pages) will be published as chapters of a book by Springer-Verlag, UK as part of the Inclusive Design hardback book series. Poster and Short papers (1-2 pages abstract, 3-4 pages for camera-ready copy), will be published separately in the official conference proceedings. Paper format details are available on the conference web site.  All papers will be peer reviewed and the accepted long papers will be presented during the workshop.
