Workshop 1 – Dealing with Sensitive and Personal Issues in Participatory Design

Marc Fabri and Paul Doney invite researchers, designers and practitioners to join us for this workshop and explore how sensitive, personal and sometimes embarrassing information about users can be elicited and shared in a safe and supportive way. The 3-hour workshop, from 9-12 on Tuesday 4th July, will present techniques for developing deep empathy and understanding for end users, and ultimately create better end products.

Prospective participants are invited to submit short papers (max. 4 pages) covering any relevant topic related to dealing with sensitive and personal issues in participatory design. Your submission should focus on challenges encountered and the methods you use in your practice to overcome these challenges. During the workshop we will ask you to share these methods with other participants.

Submissions should follow the eWiC template (see Downloads) and be submitted via EasyChair by 28th June 2017.
