Dear friends of TEI,

***Sorry for cross-posting***

we are happy to announce that the TEI2021 Student Design Challenge is 
out (see 

The challenge
The art of interaction implies its craft – our human ability to produce 
quality workmanship that makes the experience of interacting with 
technology artful. What is quality workmanship? It is knowledge of 
materials that comes from time spent in conversation with them. An 
attention to listen to their qualities, and to explore together the 
potentials of their material properties and our human properties. It is 
also increasingly relevant that our material processes consider not only 
the immediate material at hand, but their origins and the implications 
of their entanglements with processes of life on earth.

To highlight the importance of the skilled craftsmanship that makes new 
technologies truly artful, we challenge you to document and share your 
tangible, embedded, and embodied craftsmanship.

For the Student Design Challenge (SDC), we invite students to contribute 
by submitting physical examples of their craft, communicating their 
experiments, expertise and approaches to the TEI community. This call is 
not for fully functioning interactive projects, but rather for the small 
solutions that make our projects possible. The details that take time to 
solve, and skill to solve well. In many cases these solutions are not 
obvious or even visible in final designs. They are often inside the 
technologies we build. But they work, and when they work well, it makes 
all the difference.

Accepted TEI 2021 Student Design Challenge submission will become a 
physical part of the TEI 2021 Swatchbook compiling physical samples of 
all accepted submissions. Accepted papers will be published in the 
TEI2021 proceedings, part of the ACM Digital Library.
At the conference a jury will award prizes in three categories (TBD).
