Dear all,

Organising is underway for the fourth International Design for
Engagement Conference to be held in the Autumn of this year. This year
the conference will be take place on 19th October and is part of the
NordiCHI Workshop programme at Lund in Sweden. The conference will again
be a one day event featuring peer reviewed presentations, talks, demos
and innovative modes of communication relevant to designing engaging
products, services and experiences. In fact, anything engaging and
relevant will be considered if appropriate to the audience. The format
of submissions will be slightly different than in other years with timed
slots being made available of between fifteen and thirty minutes rather
than fixed presentations of papers. Slots can be used in a variety of
ways including, but not limited to, exhibiting demos, making
presentations, giving talks and interacting with the audience. The
proceedings will reflect this diversity of deliverables by publishing
traditional papers as well as photos, graphics, reports and text
reflecting the presented work.The following topics and application of
technology are indicative of the types of subjects that are particularly
relevant to the conference. This list is not prescriptive, however, and
any subject that tackles designing engaging products, services and
experiences will be considered. The main themes are:

Aesthetics, value-centred design and "3rd wave HCI"
Games, ludic design and interactive media
Interactive arts, performance and time based media
Public displays, kiosks and situation
Location-based services, mobility and personal devices
New media and the Web
Product design, semantics and New Product Development
Innovative UI approaches including virtual and mixed reality
Value-sensitive design, ethics and user participation
Design methods for engagement including design case studies

Organising the conference is about to start and I would like to give you
the opportunity to be a reviewer of submissions, organiser and of course
contributor and if you are interested in getting involved you can find
the important dates below. In order to organise and publicise the event,
the conference will have a blog, grouphub for submissions and regular
discussion group all available at the following URLs (you will need to
join these by emailing me if you are not already a member):
