PDC 2012 conference theme:  Embracing New Territories of Participation

With firm roots in the original Participatory Design focus on  
involving people in the introduction of technology into their work,  
the theme of the next PDC conference invites us to explore traditional  
fields of participatory design as well as emerging areas, field,  
arenas and forms of participation.

Skilled workers are still participating in design processes aiming at  
developing tools for quality of working life, but designing for  
everyday life poses new challenges for the way participation is  
practiced and understood. Today we are designing engaging experiences  
not only through participation but also for participation.

New ‘Do-It-Yourself’ technologies change the way we perceive the end- 
user in the design process and the availability of open source  
software and hardware tools kits such as electronics prototyping  
platform enable people to produce their own applications, and thereby  
extend the design process into use. What we used to understand as end- 
users become designers hereby dissolving the boundaries between use  
and designing, and challenges our general understanding of users as  
participants in the design process

By deliberately embracing new territories we invite you not only to  
explore traditional fields of participatory design but also address  
what participation could offer in the broad and expanding design  
contexts.

Submission categories

Research papers: (full paper – maximum 10 pages) Research papers  
should report on research, which furthers advances Participatory  
Design. Research papers will be published in the ACM International  
Conference series. Each submitted paper will be double blind reviewed  
by at least 3 reviewers. Please make sure submissions are anonymous.  
Accepted papers should be revised according to the review reports and  
the language should be checked by a native English speaker.

Exploratory papers: (short paper – maximum 4 pages) Exploratory papers  
should present ideas that could benefit from discussion with members  
of the Participatory Design community. These papers may include work- 
in-progress, experiences of reflective practitioners, and first drafts  
of novel approaches or theoretical reflections. Each submitted paper  
will be double blind reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Please make  
sure submissions are anonymous.

Interactive workshops: (maximum 2 pages) The workshop proposal should  
describe half day or full day sessions on topics that include methods,  
practices, and other areas of interest and that support an interactive  
format where active participation beyond presentation is solicited.  
The proposal must justify the need for the workshop and should contain  
a title, goals, technique, relevance to Participatory Design and a  
schedule. Intended participants and how they will be recruited should  
also be described.

Industry Cases: (2-4 page case description) Industry Cases should  
report on the use of participatory design (PD) methods, tools, and/or  
practices within commercial, non-profit, or governmental  
organizations.  Cases should highlight the benefits, challenges, and  
outcomes from the application of PD and should provide concrete  
lessons for others who are interested in applying PD in their  
organizations. Each submitted case will be double blind reviewed by at  
least 3 reviewers. Please make sure submissions are anonymous.
