OZCHI Workshop: Appropriate Methods for Design in Complex and Sensitive

Papers due 23 September 2005
Workshop on 22 November 2005

This workshop aims to explore developments in research and design
methods for exploring complex and sensitive settings. Sensitive settings
typically hold intractable problems for the HCI researcher and
(consequently) may have not been targeted by HCI in the past. The
settings could include community care settings, the home and settings
that involve activity particularly susceptible to contingencies, such as
those experienced by a mobile worker. We are concerned with discussing
novel approaches or adaptations of established techniques, such as
cultural and technology probes, and investigating how these approaches
can feed into the design process; either directly or through
co-realisation, structured participatory design workshops, scenario
based design and other approaches.

The papers submitted for this workshop should report on the subtleties
of how this kind of research has been applied in particular settings and
how such approaches could be applied in the future, with a view to
identifying particular strengths of these approaches and newly combined
techniques. Submitted papers should also discuss how the output of such
methods have been, or could be, translated into design and used within
the design process.

Papers should be submitted on or before 24th September (Melbourne,
Australia time) via email to cgraham (at) Submitted
papers should be of 3-5 pages long, A4, and formatted according to the
ACM SIG style.
