Papers for Designers

Are you frustrated with trying to shoehorn your practice into an academic paper format? If so read on:

After getting a photo essay accepted as a full paper in NordiChi were asked to help develop a new format for Designing Interactive Systems 2014 (DIS 2014). So we are introducing Pictorials: an annotated visual submission.

It is early days, a photo essay is one example of how this format could be used, but this format is at a fragile embryonic stage – so we need good people to help shape and push the potential! The theme of the conference is crafting design, if you are interested please visit the DIS 2014 website.

Call for papers viewable here.
