Call for Interactive Workshop Proposals
Participatory Design Conference 2020 invites proposals for workshops
that engage with the conference theme “PARTICIPATION(S) OTHERWISE”.  PDC
Interactive Workshops are unique opportunities to propose ambitious and
bold agendas for the PD community, crossing disciplinary boundaries and
challenging the values, characteristics, politics and future forms of PD.

Submissions to this category are expected to propose sessions that go
beyond presentation formats and that actively engage participants in
different and novel types of activities, e.g. problem definition, small
discussion groups, mapping themes, do-it-yourself, hands-on group work
etc. Their topic should concern any area of interest of PD at any level,
/e.g./ theoretical reflections, methodologies, practices, etc.
Workshops take place 2 days before the main conference in sessions of
half-day or full-day.

Important dates
    *1st December 2019*— Submission deadline
    15th February 2020 — Notification of acceptance
    15th March 2020 —  Camera ready submissions deadline

Submissions and Review Process
Submissions will be reviewed for applicability to the PD conference by
the chairs and the PC. The following main evaluation criteria will be
considered to select and accept the proposals: relevance of topic to the
conference, interactivity of the format, potential to draw participants.

Submission Formatting and Length
Proposals should include: the workshop’s title and its goals; the
planned format, methods or techniques used to structure the workshop;
the way participants should contribute to the workshop; its relevance to
PD; its need and value at PDC; and a draft schedule. In particular, it
should make clear how the workshop topic and format link to the
conference theme. Include few lines on how the organizers have the
relevant expertise to set up this workshop. Convey the duration of the
workshop (half/full day), minimum and maximum number of participants,
and provide clear ideas on how participants will be recruited. When
describing the recruitment procedure, important dates should be clearly
communicated. Finally, the workshop proposal should include a clear
statement about the expected concrete outcomes of the session (e.g.
journal publication, research proposal, future collaborations,
exhibition). If authors anticipate the need of specific equipment or
setup for running the workshop, they should contact the workshop chairs
well in advance of the submission deadline to map and discuss possibilities.

Formatting and length
Submissions should be made according to the appropriate template
available on the submission page.
Submissions should be written in English and should not be longer than 3
pages. References do not count towards the page limits.
Interactive Workshop proposals will be published in Vol. 2 of PDC
proceedings published by ACM International Conference series.
