PAPERS DUE: Friday 22nd September 2006
The object of interaction - the role of artefacts in interaction design
Workshop website: http://hdm.acid.net.au/workshop.html
A day-long workshop at OZCHI 2006 - Sydney, Australia, November 21st.
This workshop explores the role artefacts play in informing or
inspiring the design of interactive technologies. We are interested
in the match between method and context, with the workshop exploring
how ‘creative’ versus ‘engineering’ approaches in user centred design
lead to different engagements between people, design and context.
This workshop will build on discussions of Cultural Probes, Playful
Triggers and in-situ methods like contextual design that support
discussion between user and designer.
We invite researchers and practitioners to submit examples of their
experiences of using or creating artefacts to support the interaction
design process. In discussing the roles that artefacts play, we are
interested in how design-led approaches make use of the artefacts in
a generative way.
The workshop aims to provide ‘scaffolds’ to investigate the design
space, led by the unique contexts provided by workshop participants.
Through their submissions and attendance, we ask all participants to
actively participate, experience and explore their own design space,
in their own context of interaction design. Engagement in this
experience will hopefully provide participants with a deeper insight
and a greater awareness of their own design methods and processes, as
well as informed knowledge gained from their peers.
Outcomes for participants
+ Playful, interactive and participatory activity based on open-ended
conversations led by participants,
+ Experiential learning environment to understand design-led
processes for interaction design,
+ A place to explore artefact-based interaction design methodology
with a like-minded community.
Submission & Workshop Activities
Interested parties should submit a position paper on the nature of
design process in their workplace or research context. Submitted
papers should be up to 4 pages long, A4, and formatted according to
the ACM SIG style. Templates and instructions are available from
Submissions should be in PDF format only, and sent as an email
attachment to the Matthew Simpson <matts [at] itee [dot] uq [dot] edu
[dot] au>. The sender of this email will be considered to be the
corresponding author, whom we assume to act on behalf of and
authorized by her or his co-authors.
It is assumed that authors of accepted papers will present their work
and participate in workshop activities. Accepted papers, propositions
and artefacts will be displayed on the workshop website. An open
discussion forum has been created at http://hdm.acid.net.au/
community/ to enable discussion on this topic prior to the workshop
and into the future.
