Dear colleagues,

Please see below for the call for participation for a one-day workshop at the Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) 2018 conference. Full details can be found at

Key dates:
* submission deadline: 20th April
* notifications by: 30th April
* workshop: Saturday, 9th June

Care has begun to be used as an alternative design lens, moving beyond health care or social care to consider care as a fundamental relational quality of life. This one-day workshop aims to bring together a diverse group of researchers to work toward a shared understanding of the ways in which interpersonal care and interdependence can be supported through design approaches and new approaches to technology design. The initial goal is to raise issues and highlight sensitivities towards care, with the ultimate aim of impacting design practices. Participants will generate understandings of how such a focus could impact their own research, as well as research and design in HCI-related fields that address interactions in sociotechnical systems more broadly.

Position papers (2-4 page pdf in extended abstracts format should be submitted to [log in to unmask], and should respond to at least one of the workshop themes:

1) Technologies to support interpersonal caring relationships;
2) Methods for exploring issues of care;
3) Tensions in designing between care that is everyday or formalized;
4) Educating and training designers to be conscious of care;
5) Reflections on the responsibility of designers and researchers to care in their practice; and
6) Critiques and provocations of care and its role in specific contexts.

Please visit for additional details about acceptable submission types.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the organizers, and will be accepted to the workshop based on their potential to stimulate conversation and to ensure a complementary and contrasting set of works to discuss on the day of the workshop.

Thanks so much,
