The ACM SIGCHI Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) Conference in Brisbane on 4-8 June 2016 is seeking submissions from practice and design-led researchers with creative works for exhibition and an accompanying ‘framing text’ articulating the practice and research relationship.
DIS 2016 centres on designerly approaches to creating, deploying and critically reflecting on interactive systems.
Accepted works will be exhibited in a gallery setting and their accompanying framing texts will be published in the ACM DIS 2016 companion proceedings as extended abstracts.
The essential aims of this stream at DIS 2016 are to facilitate this bridging and to present the locus of our discipline: the design outcome.
The exhibition and publications are a forum for discussing the dual practice and research work and, in so doing, gain deeper insight into the relationships between creative work and knowledge.
We seek to provide designers and artists who also conduct research with a platform to show non-traditional research outputs and share the accompanying knowledge outcomes. Submissions are expected to describe the proposed design work for installation (part 1) as well as a ‘framing text’ (part 2).
- March 13, 2016: Design Works due
- March 27, 2016: Design Works author notifications
- April 1, 2016: All camera ready papers due
- May 8, 2016: Early bird registration deadline
- June 4-8, 2016: DIS Conference
Preparing and Submitting
Expect the track to be competitive and submit your best work. Submitted work must comply with ACM policies. Please do not submit work you have submitted elsewhere, doing so may violate dual submission rules. You may submit previously published work that has been substantially modified, provided only that this is evidenced in the framing text. For example, this might be work that has been developed through cycles of research and evaluation. In this last case, at least 30% of the material must be new, as per ACM rules.
Submission consists of two parts. Proposals lacking both parts will not be considered.
