Inviting Workshop Proposals

The Design Lab is organizing a workshop at the Designing Interactive Systems conference at UC San Diego (June 2019 ). We encourage interested researchers to submit proposals for participation. The goal is to explore how to support communities and groups in addressing their own goals and aspirations (as opposed to solutions designed by professional designers). We invite you to engage, define, challenge, and advance this approach.

The formal call for participation is here. Submissions are due May 1, 2019. Send proposals to both Eric Hekler AND Jennifer Taylor:,
