NordiCHI2012 Workshop: Crossing Boundaries: Exploring What Design Can Do (Oct 2012, Copenhagen)

Dates: 13-14 October 2012
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Web site: http://boundariescrossing.wordpress.com
Deadline for submissions: 1 August 2012

Due to increasing specialization in organizations and multidisciplinary teamwork, boundaries are becoming more explicit obstacles. Boundary objects are one proposed means for crossing these boundaries. This workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to share experiences and issues with crossing boundaries in multidisciplinary innovation projects.

The current workshop focuses on how one can make a boundary object for use and aims to explore what the role of design can do making appropriate boundary objects. We want to improve the understanding of what works and what doesn’t and be able to develop both practical and theoretical applications of such by actually ‘designing’ boundary crossing solutions during the workshop including a research-through-design approach.
