Call for Proposals

CHI 2008 Workshop: Optimizing Agile UCD

Sat 5-April-2008, Florence, Italy

Submissions deadline: 5-Nov-07				Notification date: 28-Nov-07

Workshop website:

The goal of this workshop is to improve future Agile user‑centered design (UCD) experiences for User Experience (UX) practitioners (such as interaction designers, usability professionals, UI designers, etc.) by investigating best practices for Agile UCD.

To achieve this, senior UX practitioners with prior experience on an Agile project will share their knowledge and example work, collaborating in order to:

·        Identify success factors for Agile UCD

·        Find and remove obstacles that block Agile UCD

·        Find opportunities that Agile projects give us

·        Identify best UX practices for Agile UCD

·        Identify UX skills that Agile projects need.

This workshop is a full-day extension to the successful Informal SIG of the same name at CHI 2007. What we'd like to happen this year is a more in-depth walkthrough of some examples of best practices, based on a few key areas of interest identified prior to the conference by the participants.

The results of this collaboration will be shared with the wider UX community (including those new to Agile development practices), but the participants should have experience in both UCD practices and Agile development.

Detailed guidelines for proposals are at the workshop website ( Proposals should be no longer than 4 pages in length, and should be sent to Desirée Sy (desiree dot sy at autodesk dot com). Any questions about the workshop can also be sent to Desirée Sy.

Participants will be notified by November 28th, and the topics for the workshop will be decided collectively by the group.
