Designing Experience-conference (Hong Kong, July 2014)

For reasons out of our control this conference needed to be rescheduled: for the new call for abstracts etc. please visit here.

Dates: 3 to 5 July 2014
Location: Academy of Visual Arts, HKBU, Hong Kong
Deadline for abstracts: 28 March 2014 (400 words)

We wish to invite professionals and academics with an interdisiplinary approach to design to join us in exchanging, comparing, reviewing and publishing current practice and ideas in Experience Design at the international, interdisciplinary conference:

Designing Experience: The Power of Context
Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong, July 2014

For this purpose we now invite submissions of abstracts for international peer review. Submissions should be of no more than 400 words in English, and reveal significant, original or previously unpublished academic research, professional/practical case studies or more experimental formats that respond to, or take further the following issues:

– As experience blurs object with context, where are the contextual boundaries for designing?
– How is empirical evidence for the role of context in designing experience best presented?
– Is experience design a ‘discipline’ or a general condition for all current design practice?
– Can the social value, as well as the economic impact of experience design be quantified?
– Is there a distinctive aesthetics of physical or virtual experience design?
– If Experience Design is interdisciplinary, which disciplines does it include – or exclude?
– Which examples and texts are core to a contemporary understanding of Experience Design?
– Is Experience Design a new phenomenon, or does it open an extensive history?
– What are the emerging ethical issues in Experience Design practice?
– Is ‘co-creation’ key to the future development of Experience Design?
– How does the focus on experience redefine reductive design terms such as ‘the user’?

Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to present their full papers or presentations at the Designing Experience conference in July 2014 in Hong Kong, and will subsequently be considered for publication in conference proceedings or as chapters of an edited volume.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is 28 March 2014. Abstracts, together with relevant personal information, should be submitted via this submission link. Announcements of the shortlisted papers for the conference will begin on 2 May 2014. Softcopies of the final full papers need to be submitted to the conference’s Programme Committee by 27 June 2014.

We welcome your questions about this event, and look forward to you joining our collective discussions in Hong Kong, which we hope will pave the way for a regular event on the international design calendar.
