Workshop Submissions

Workshop Submissions

Workshop sessions provide an opportunity to come together and learn in a practical and engaging way about the latest tools, methods, and techniques of Design Research, Practice, and Education. They aim to bring together design researchers and design practitioners in academia, public sector, business, and industry. Unlike courses, workshops enable both organizer(s) and participants to contribute. We welcome proposals on topics that align with the conference theme “Agents and Agency: HCI in the Age of Machine Intelligence”.

FAQs

What is the difference between a workshop and a course?

 

If you are looking forward to conducting a session where you expect participants to collaborate and work on a common topic, then please propose it as a workshop. On the other hand, if it is going to be like a class where the participants will focus on learning than contributing back, then please propose it as a course. The second difference is that there are no remunerations for the workshop, and course instructors get paid based on the number of registrations mentioned above.
