Call for Papers: Designing Interactive Systems DIS 2018 conference
School of Design, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
Conference dates: June 9-13, 2018
Submissions by January 8, 2018
Interactive systems can be designed to take into account diversities, but also the global landscape, when faced with diversity, designers face a classic philosophical question about particulars and universals: should design make particular commitments to diversity or should it go after universals in technology and experience?
Today, emerging technologies are redefining this question. Many newly emerging interactive artifacts and systems can be personalized. Individuals can create their own artifacts with globally available platforms. For designers, these platforms pose new possibilities, but also challenges in terms of concepts, methods, processes, and technologies.
DIS 2018 invites submissions that address the following questions around Diversity and Design: Are our current models of user experience adequate in addressing diversity? What kinds of methods and processes are needed for designing for diversity? How can applications and technologies be designed to address diversity and even add to it in this era of giant global corporations? What are the ethical limits designers have to face when designing for diversity?
DIS 2018 invites several types of submissions, including papers, pictorials, demos, provocations and workshops. As before, the conference focuses explicitly on the design aspects of interactive systems, products, services, and spaces – but the limit is imagination.
The ACM SIGCHI Conference on Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) is the premier international arena where designers and computer scientists meet to debate and shape the future of interactive systems design and practice. DIS is owned by the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI).
