Call for participation | CHI 2009 Workshop
Building a unified framework for the practice of eXperience Design
For the last several years there has been a growing interest in the
ideas and issues around experience design. Many researchers have
developed theories and methods related experience design; however,
there seems to be little agreement on what it means to practice
experience design. This stems partially from a disconnect between the
various theories and methods and the activities in design practice.
experience design methods & theories = experience design practice
experience design methods & theories ≠ experience design practice
To address these challenges, this workshop will address the connection
and the disconnect between experience design theory and practice. The
workshop will bring practitioners and researchers together to share
their experiences in applying theory in practice with the goals of
identifying guiding philosophies and developing unifying framework for
practice. This framework will include a holistic model for the
application of experience design theory; gaps between theory and
practice; and methods for experience design, their relationship (or
lack thereof) to theory, and how they have been modified or extended
to meet the needs of designers in the field. Participants will come
from a range of interaction design backgrounds including mobile and
ubiquitous computing, social and web 2.0, adaptive and intelligent
systems, and traditional desktop interaction.
Applicants should submit one of the following, in a 3-page conference
1) a design case study describing the practice of experience design; or
2) an example framework or theory that allow designers to better
select appropriate methods.
Please send submissions by Thursday, November 6, 2008 to John
Zimmerman <johnz at cs.cmu.edu>
We will notify authors of acceptance by November 28, 2008
