Call For Papers

The 26th ACM International Conference on Design of Communication will be held in Lisboa, Portugal September. 22-24, 2008. Participants are encouraged to submit research papers, workshop proposals, and experience reports concerning processes, methods, and technologies for communicating and designing communication artifacts such as printed documents, online text, and hypermedia applications.

At SIGDOC 2008, researchers and practitioners will exchange information in areas relevant to the design of communication:

* Multidisciplinary approaches to information design and information architecture
* Participatory and user-centered design: methods, methodologies, and approaches
* Processes for developing information, including documentation
* Agile documentation processes for information design
* Genre and discourse analyses of information design and delivery
* Personalized information systems, time management systems, and project management systems: design, development, and impact
Submission Process

SIGDOC 2008 will include technical papers, participatory workshops, experience reports and posters. Authors should submit complete drafts of all tipe of submissions for review by the program committee.

To submit a paper, experience report, workshop or poster proposal for review, e-mail Carlos Costa ( with an attached file. The submission deadline is May 2, 2008.

Authors will be notified of acceptance by June 10, 2008. Final versions of technical papers and workshop descriptions are due by June 20, 2008. Acceptance for publication is contingent on registration for the conference. (In the case of multiple authors, at least one must register to full conference.) If you cannot attend the conference, a publication fee equivalent to the event registration will be charged.

Guidelines for Experience Reports - Experience reports should not exceed 3,500 words. The experience report is a standalone, six-page extended abstract that describes a design experience and its lessons for other designers of communication. The experience report must include the title, names and affiliations of the authors, an abstract of up to 150 words, and keywords.

Guidelines for posters - Accepted poster submissions will receive a one page description in the conference proceedings.
