Final Call for Participation

CHI 2011 workshop - Designer Experience: Exploring Ways to Design in Experience
Submission deadline - Jan 14, 2011

Designers are not users, and they should not design for themselves, but for the users. What if a designer could be and experience more like a user? Would it automatically improve the quality of their designs as they could design for themselves?

We cordially invite researchers and practitioner of user-centered design and user experience to participate in a one-day CHI workshop on Designer Experience i.e. designing in the future user’s experiential system. Please submit position papers on the following topics:

* Existence and feasibility of the paradigm Designer Experience
* Methodology to invoke experiences and design in experience
* Research topics and future uses for designer experience

For more details see the workshop’s extended abstract "Designer Experience: Exploring Ways to Design in Experience" at the workshop website .

Submit your 4-page position paper, in PDF (CHI extended abstract format), and a short bio by email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by January 14 2011. Papers will be reviewed and selected based on their relevance to the workshop, uniqueness and ability to contribute to the discussion.

Please note that participants must register for the workshop and for at least one day of the CHI 2011 conference. Fee for a one-day workshop is $175.

Important dates:

* Submission deadline - Jan 14, 2011
* Notification of acceptance - Feb 11, 2011
* Workshop at CHI2011 - May 7, 2011
