Dear List,


The call for entries to the TEI 2018 Student Design Challenge is now live.

We encourage you to share this call with students who might be 
interested in the challenge and across your networks. Below is the call 
which can also be found on


Building on the theme of the conference (Post-digital Design) the 
Student Design Challenge encourages submissions of the ‘magical mundane’ 
and invites exploration of the commonplace technologies of ‘tomorrows 

Visions of the future often place emphasis on magical technologies that 
radically alter our way of life and cure all problems; for instance 
great distances travelled in a matter of seconds, robots to perform 
unwanted chores, or food magically appearing upon request. Though 
previously fictional, now handheld devices can immediately access the 
world’s knowledge, from any location, are commonplace; these once 
seemingly magical have become, perhaps, largely mundane. Mark Weiser’s 
seminal article on “The Computer for the 21st century” introduced us to 
the “world of tomorrow” for the 1990’s through the life of Sal, who’s 
fictional life is now nearly our own reality. But who is Sal’s 
grandchild and what does their life look like?

We invite student teams to reflect on how we use yesterday’s magical 
technologies today and envision examples of how tomorrow’s magical 
tangible, embedded, and embodied technologies might be explored in an 
article about the “The Computer for the 22nd century”. We are looking 
for exciting demonstrations that show creativity, inspiration, and 
feasibility in future possibilities. Successful entries will be those 
that show inspiration for future technologies that blend ambition and 
utility with consideration toward revisiting pre-computational designs 
or through post-digital materials./The student design competition must 
produce an artefact to be shown at the conference that will 
embody/explain visions of a technology for Sal’s grandkids./

There will be three prizes awarded:

  * Best presentation of demonstration (Juried)
  * Best technological contribution (Juried)
  * Audience choice (Attendee voted)

All selected demonstrations will be awarded the early-bird registration.
