CHI 2011 WORKSHOP - Appropriation and Creative Use: Linking User Studies and Design

Sunday 8 May 2011, Vancouver

http://www.hiit.fi/u/asalovaa/chi2011-appropriation

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
----------------------

End users of technology have a significant power in determining how technologies are used, adapted and re-purposed. These activities are central elements in research of *appropriation*, or the ways that technologies are adopted, adapted and incorporated into use practice.

Over the years, two communities – designers and user researchers – have been working on this topic but have had limited interaction with each other. This workshop provides a forum for the two to meet. We have two main goals:

* enabling researchers interested in CSCW and user studies to meet the
designers, and vice versa
* to promote development of practical solutions and suggestions that lead to
design decisions informed by theories, concepts or user observations.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* user research methods that are suitable for gaining understanding about
different forms of appropriation
* theories and conceptualizations of how appropriations take place, how
different factors play part in them, and how they can be affected by design choices
* design principles that support appropriation
* approaches that link theories and concepts with design
* critical viewpoints on the prevailing appropriation-related design and
research practice

The workshop is targeted at a maximum of 15 participants, in order to ensure effective roundtable discussions in smaller groups. At least one author of each accepted position paper must register for the workshop and for at least one day of the conference.
