DESIGNING AROUND PEOPLE
Designing Around People is the eighth of a series of workshops started in 2002 that represent the inclusive design community. CWUAAT is a unique multi-disciplinary workshop, where designers, computer scientists, engineers, architects, ergonomists, ethnographers, policymakers and user communities meet.
In the context of developing demographic changes leading to greater numbers of older people and people with disabilities, the general field of inclusive design research strives to relate the capabilities of the population to the design of products. Inclusive populations of older people contain a greater variation in sensory, cognitive and physical user capabilities. These variations may be co-occurring and rapidly changing, leading to a demanding design environment. Inclusive Design Research involves developing methods, technologies, tools and guidance for supporting product designers and architects to design for the widest possible population for a given range of capabilities, within a contemporary social and economic context. Recent developments have seen a wider demand for the techniques of inclusive interface design, particularly as a result of situational impairment in Human machine Interfaces for demanding workload applications such as Automotive and Aerospace.
We seek original research papers describing investigations within the following broad categories:
1. RECONCILING USABILITY, ACCESSIBILITY AND INCLUSIVE DESIGN
2. DESIGNING INCLUSIVE ASSISTIVE AND REHABILITATION SYSTEMS
3. MEASURING PRODUCT DEMAND AND PEOPLES’ CAPABILITIES
4. DESIGNING COGNITIVE INTERACTION WITH EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
5. DESIGNING INCLUSIVE ARCHITECTURE: BUILDINGS AND SPACES
6. DATA MINING AND VISUALISING INCLUSION : USER PROFILING
7. LEGISLATION, STANDARDS AND POLICY IN INCLUSIVE DESIGN
8. SITUATIONAL INCLUSIVE INTERFACES: AUTOMOTIVE AND AEROSPACEBack to the top
Accepted long papers
will be published as a book by
papers (6-10 pages) will be published as chapters of a book by
Springer-Verlag, UK as part of the Inclusive Design hardback book series.
and Short papers (1-2 pages abstract, 3-4 pages for camera-ready copy), will
be published separately in the official conference proceedings.
All papers will be peer reviewed and the accepted long papers will be presented during the workshop. The best papers will be invited to a special issue of two Journals.
To submit a paper please register on the CWUAAT submissions website when it becomes live.
Please join the cwuaat-announce news list at:
