Call for Participation:

Last opportunity to join our workshop at CHI 2017: ‘Problems in Practice: Understanding Design Research by Critiquing Cases’!

Come join the debate on the role and values of Design Research in HCI practice on Sunday 7th May 2017 in Denver, Colorado.

Final submission deadline 31 March 2017

Recent calls within the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) community have argued for better understanding of both design research practice and the forms of knowledge it might produce, challenging the value of design practice within HCI projects. In response, our one-day workshop at the ACM CHI conference will gather case examples of design research in practice, for presentation and critique. We encourage participation from HCI design researchers with diverse backgrounds and a range of professional expertise.

Position papers should reflect authors’ personal perspectives on the problems and challenges faced in practicing design research within HCI projects, focusing on problems, miscommunications, tensions and failures. Authors should lay bare a ‘critical incident’ that has determined their project’s development. Discussion and reflection on such problems will generate a deeper critical understanding of design research practices, for better supporting HCI project teams.

Some possible provocations for authors to consider:

(1) How was design practice configured in your project and what was its value?
(2) How were designers’ and researchers’ identities expressed/managed within the project?
(3) How was design practice communicated within and beyond the HCI research team?

Submissions (up to four pages in CHI Extended Abstract format, see, maximum 5MB, PDF file) should also describe an artefact, image or other material that authors can bring to the workshop to support their discussion. We encourage use of illustrations in submissions. Authors must additionally consider the ethical implications of presenting their cases and anonymise their work as appropriate.

For more information, see:

At least one author from each accepted paper must register for both the workshop and 1-day (minimum) of CHI2017.
