PDC2012 call
Join us in Roskilde, Denmark in 2012 to celebrate the 12th biennial Participatory Design Conference (PDC), which is back-to-back with SCIS/IRIS in nearby Uppsala.

The conference theme for PDC 2012 is: 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.

Aug 12-16, 2012: PDC2012 in Roskilde

TEI 2013, the Seventh International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction, will be held at the Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona (Spain), in February 2013.

TEI is an international conference dedicated to present the latest results in tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction. The work presented at TEI addresses HCI issues, design, interactive art, user experience, tools and technologies, with a strong focus on how computing can bridge atoms and bits into cohesive interactive systems. The intimate size of this single-track conference provides a unique forum for exchanging ideas and presenting innovative work through talks, interactive exhibits, demos, hands-on studios, posters, art installations and performances.

See you in Barcelona in February 2013!

The doctoral consortium is a full day session taking place on Sunday
14th October 2012. It is intended for Ph.D. students working in the
field of human-computer interaction. The doctoral consortium is an
opportunity to present issues of concern in the doctoral studies, meet
fellow Ph.D. students, and get extensive feedback from the session
co-chairs and other participants. It is primarily intended for
students in the “middle” of their PhD studies (you have started your
study, but it is not too late to make changes based on feedback).

Submit a 2-4 pages paper in ACM SIGCHI Publications Format describing
your PhD project. Please also submit a resume (CV) and a letter of
recommendation from your supervisor. Students accepted will be asked
to read at least two other submissions, and should be prepared to give
feedback to those students during the consortium.

For further information and for submissions, please email the
doctorial consortium chairs at

Submission deadline for Doctoral Consortium: 10th of August 2012
