Call for Papers - INTERACT 2021 Workshop on
Designing for Aging People (DEAP 2021)
31 August 2021 – Bari, Italy




Our modern day society is aging at an unprecedented pace, and as such, 
all fields of design need to adapt and cater for the resulting 
age-related changes. This workshop aims to promote debate among design 
researchers and practitioners on how to better design to accommodate for 
the needs of aging people, while also enabling them rather than 
stigmatizing them as a lesser able segment of the population.

This aim will be achieved through having the workshop participants 
contribute with their perspectives and previous experiences in the 
field, through engaging and structured hands-on workshop activities. 
These will increase the participants' awareness of the value of 
developing effective co-design practices and ethically appropriate 
processes involving older adults. Through these activities, the workshop 
will bridge participants' different experiences across a range of areas, 
to not only solidify and create new knowledge, but also to foster the 
development of the community of designers, researchers and practitioners 
involved in designing for aging people.

We believe that it is important to consider the topic of aging 
carefully, and bring it to the forefront of design research and 
practice, because the way in which we design for/with the aging people 
will shape their future experiences, and this in turn will shape our 
society as a whole. This workshop is the third in a series of workshops, 
following from those we previously held at IFIP ICEC 2018 (DEAP 2018) 
and INTERACT 2019 (DEAP 2019) conferences



We invite the potential participants to submit short position papers, 
presenting their own approaches and/or arguing for novel approaches to 
designing for aging people. The contributions may describe processes of 
ideation, design, prototyping, development, evaluation, and deployment 
of digital products, technologies, tools, and services. They may 
originate from a range of topics and areas of interest, including, but 
not limited to:


    Addressing healthy aging, quality of life and well-being, social
    aspects, education, entertainment, advocacy, activism, or


    Critical, speculative, participatory, or any other novel design


    Ethical and responsible design;


    Ageism-free design approaches;


    Community- and user-led design innovation;


    Case studies of deployment and use;


    Co-design approaches involving multiple-stakeholder;


    Acceptability and adoption.

At this stage, we hope that the workshop will be held physically at the 
conference. However, should this not be possible due to the covid-19 
pandemic, we will aim to hold the workshop online or in a hybrid mode.



In addition to sharing and generating ideas amongst its participants, 
through the planned discussion session, this workshop will actively seek 
potential future outcomes. These may, for instance, include a special 
issue of an international journal (e.g., Gerontechnology) and/or a 
co-authored report for dissemination of the workshop results. 
Furthermore, an edited book, related to the topic of this workshop and 
co-edited by its organizers, is currently being negotiated with 
Springer. The workshop participants will be invited to contribute 
chapters on selected topics to this edited book



Workshop paper submissions should be of maximum 6 pages. Please prepare 
paper submissions in the Springer LNCS format, using the templates 
provided for CS Proceedings and other Multiauthor Volumes 

Please submit your workshop paper through Easychair
