Design and Design Science (including HCI) Track

The Design and Design Science (including HCI) track seeks submissions reporting on new research contributions concerning Design Science Research (DSR) as well as the Science of Design (SD), particularly in the contexts of User Experience (UX) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). We seek papers that apply Design Science Research (DSR) methods (including ones that aim to improve design) as well as papers concerning issues and practices in DSR. Papers in all areas of UX and HCI that contribute to the Science of Design (SD) are also sought.

Accordingly, this track welcomes submissions in all areas of DSR, UX, and HCI, as relevant to the IS discipline, including – but is not limited to – the following suggested topics:

  • New User Experience Artefacts and Methods
  • New Human-Computer Interface Artefacts and Methods
  • Developing/Evaluating Design Artifacts and Design Theories in DSR, UX, and HCI
  • DSR, UX, and HCI Methods, Techniques, and Tools
  • Creativity, Design Thinking and Design Theory
  • User-Centred Design, Co-Design, and Participatory Design
  • End-User Design and Meta-Design
  • Complexity and Socio-Technical Systems Design
  • Ethics in DSR, UX, and HCI
  • Evaluation in DSR, UX, and HCI
  • Ecological considerations for DSR, UX, and HCI
  • Critical Reflections on DSR, UX, and HCI
  • Teaching and Learning DSR, UX, and HCI
