Workshop at DIS 2006 Call for Participation

Exploring the Interrelationships between the Design and Evaluation of Interactive Systems

While much research has focused on the design of interactive systems and much research has focused on the evaluation of interactive systems, less work has addressed both the design and evaluation of interactive systems together. While having evaluation inform design and having design inform evaluation is a goal that few would disagree with, how this might be done has not been extensively addressed. The evaluation community (often labeled the usability community) focuses primarily on the evaluation of designed artifacts while the design community focuses primarily on the design of artifacts that will be evaluated later. Design and evaluation both share the common goal of usability but each takes a different path in trying to achieve it. Our goal is to further explore the relationships between design and evaluation in an attempt to understand how they can be brought together meaningfully.

To maintain a focus on discussion, formal presentations will not be given. Collectively, attendees will identify issues worthy of discussion and discuss them. Plans for continuing this discussion will also be made.

To take part, please submit a 2-5 page position paper describing your research interests and background in this area to [log in to unmask]; please include DIS 2006 Workshop Submission in the subject line. Please submit position papers by May 1, 2006.
