HCI researchers have contributed to the field of interaction design
beyond the specific technologies they develop with (other) design
knowledge such as design methods, patterns, heuristics, principles, and
guidelines. Several other forms of intermediate-level knowledge have
also been articulated for HCI as a whole, such as bridging concepts and
strong concepts, as well as design critiques and annotated portfolios.
Recently, this intermediate-level knowledge – residing between theory
and artefact – has been suggested as a specific, lasting contribution
of design research to interaction design. Developing intermediate-level
knowledge can be seen as a way to develop a research field further,
providing an opportunity to build up knowledge over multiple artefacts
and projects.
As the Child-Computer Interaction field is maturing, we can see the
intermediate-level knowledge space getting increasingly populated, for
instance with specific methods and tools. However, there seem to be
fewer design patterns, design critiques, strong concepts or annotated
In this special issue we invite researchers and practitioners to
contribute with original papers about their endeavours to develop or
actively engage with intermediate-level knowledge for the CCI field. We
also invite researchers to discuss and question whether
intermediate-level knowledge is necessarily the right way forward for
the maturation of the field, and possibly suggest alternative ways of
extracting and communicating design knowledge for CCI from either
theories or artefacts within CCI or closely related fields.

Topics of Interest
• examples of approaches to developing intermediate-level knowledge in CCI
• various forms of intermediate-level knowledge in CCI from a generative
perspective, meaning that it has lead to new design ideas and possibilities.
• approaches to determine generative power of different types of
intermediate-level knowledge
• alternative approaches and critiques to intermediate-level knowledge
