HCI researchers have contributed to the field of interaction design 
beyond the specific technologies they develop with (other) design 
knowledge such as design methods, patterns, heuristics, principles, and 
guidelines. Several other forms of intermediate-level knowledge have 
also been articulated for HCI as a whole, such as bridging concepts and 
strong concepts, as well as design critiques and annotated portfolios. 
Recently, this intermediate-level knowledge – residing between theory 
and artefact –  has been suggested as a specific, lasting contribution 
of design research to interaction design. Developing intermediate-level 
knowledge can be seen as a way to develop a research field further, 
providing an opportunity to build up knowledge over multiple artefacts 
and projects.
As the Child-Computer Interaction field is maturing, we can see the 
intermediate-level knowledge space getting increasingly populated, for 
instance with specific methods and tools. However, there seem to be 
fewer design patterns, design critiques, strong concepts or annotated 
In this special issue we invite researchers and practitioners to 
contribute with original papers about their endeavours to develop or 
actively engage with intermediate-level knowledge for the CCI field. We 
also invite researchers to discuss and question whether 
intermediate-level knowledge is necessarily the right way forward for 
the maturation of the field, and possibly suggest alternative ways of 
extracting and communicating design knowledge for CCI from either 
theories or artefacts within CCI or closely related fields.

*Topics of Interest*
• examples of approaches to developing intermediate-level knowledge in CCI
• various forms of intermediate-level knowledge in CCI from a generative 
perspective, meaning that it has lead to new design ideas and possibilities.
• approaches to determine generative power of different types of 
intermediate-level knowledge
• alternative approaches and critiques to intermediate-level knowledge
