Call for participation

Page

We invite position papers up to four pages in CHI Extended Abstract format. We ask authors to include a discussion of their work and its relation to repurposing in the context of designing interactive tangible objects for children. We encourage, but by no means require, participants to bring a (video-) demonstrator to present at the workshop. We welcome participants from a broad range of disciplines including computer science, interaction design, education, arts, psychology, cognitive science, social science and product design.

Possible contributions may include but are not limited to:

  • Interaction styles and concepts suitable for repurposing
  • Challenges and opportunities for supporting repurposing
  • Theoretical positions and evaluation approaches
  • Prototypes related to repurposing of tangible objects
  • Design work or case studies related to repurposing of tangible objects
  • Relations of design for repurpose to other paradigms
  • Relevance for specific contexts and target groups
  • Work in progress, late breaking innovations
  • Tools to develop tangible objects that support repurposing
  • Methods that support designing for repurposability

Please send your submissions to design.for.repurposing@gmail.com before 25 April 2014.

Please note that it is the policy of IDC2014 that all workshop participants must register for both the workshop and for the main conference.
