PDC2020: 1st September 2019 - Full Papers and Plurilingual Papers deadline


Dear colleagues,

a gentle reminder about the first deadline for submission for the next
Participatory Design Conference. Full Papers (submission in English) and
Plurilingual Papers (submission in Spanish and Portuguese) can be submitted
by September 1st, 2019.

In 2020, the 16th Biennial Participatory Design Conference (PDC) will be
held in Manizales, Colombia, for the first time in South America. It will
be hosted by Universidad de Caldas.

The theme of the conference is “Participation(s) otherwise”: we are
inviting the PD community to think further on the diverse meanings and
ontologies that participation and design can take on. Let’s open up the
understanding of “participation” beyond modernist narratives and
theoretically “universal” cookie cutter solutions, and account for

What forms, conceptions and understandings of participation, collaboration,
intervention, design and technology can we draw upon to contest
essentialist views on participatory design? Are current conceptions
coherent with plural understandings and realities? What haven’t we realized
before? From whom else are we / can we be learning?

We welcome a variety of different contributions, such as theoretical
elaborations, case study analysis, long term explorations and/or
methodological reflections.
