Do you have experience with remote user participation? Then you might be interested in submitting a working paper for the workshop "Experiences of remote user participation". The purpose of the workshop is to focus on experiences of and activities within the wide range of distributed participatory design and related user participation experiences.

About the workshop

The aim is to cover the methodological breadth of remote user participation in interaction design and include a critical discussion of developing practices.

Sustainable future needs participation. Co-creating digital futures is not easy due to various limitations of physical nature. As noted by several researchers and practitioners the last twenty years, participation can be facilitated if we are not constrained by physical presence. Furthermore, COVID-19 has sped up the process of digital transformation in many aspects. Including academia, researchers in the field, have resolved to remote and hybrid ways to develop design work. In participatory design, collaborations go beyond the mere inclusion of different stakeholders. Instead, stakeholders are involved in the co-creation process. The workshop participants will discuss their own and each other's experiences of adapting or inventing methods for remote use.  Specifically, it would include critical discussion of old and new practices to see opportunities as well as limits in inclusiveness when user participation in digital design is conducted "remotely".

Workshop format

Full-day with up to 15 participants, of which 6-8 people will have papers that have been distributed to everyone. Each of these 6-8 papers will be discussed for about an hour. For each paper, one person is appointed in advance as a chair for the discussion.

We prefer to have this in-person as we hold the community building is facilitated by meeting also during the rest of the conference. The European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS) 2023 will be held in Kristiansand, Norway, in June 11-16. Workshops are held in Monday-Tuesday June 12-13.

At the end of the workshop there will be a discussion of a next step: for instance, is it worth to work towards a joint publication (a special issue or a book) on the topic of the workshop, or is it better to prepare to propose tracks on next/future ECIS on requirements and design methods with extended user participation? Follow-up meetings will be held in Zoom.

Target audience

Target audience includes practitioners and academics who have conducted design work remotely in any format (focus groups, co-design sessions, workshops, user tests with design discussions, including educational settings).

Call for submissions and instructions

There is no specific template, and the range limit is 6-12 pages ; extra pages used for appendices with extra material are allowed.

Please send your paper draft in .docx or pdf format to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

Review guidelines

Paper contributors and other persons accepted to attend to the workshop are expected to provide comments to 2-3 papers. Such comments are supposed to be taken into considerations by the authors before they hand in the workshop version of their papers.
