We highly encourage research that incorporates one or more of the following:

  • Service design thinking approaches
    (user-centered design, ethnographic studies, participatory design)

    (storytelling, games, virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, mobile media)
  • The next generation of designers
    (how can we coach future designers to create experiences people will *want* to have/use)

We encourage submissions with supplemental materials (e.g. images, video), they make better presentations!
