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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
