Papers & Speakers

The following shortlist of proposed papers invited for presentation at the conference is based on the outcomes of a double-blind peer-review, and subsequently confirmed by the conference’s Programme Committee in its meeting on 15 September 2014.

After reviewing all submitted abstracts – not only those shortlisted – the Programme Committee felt it was possible to “distill” three core themes from those submissions that seem to affect much of the research work done in experience design around the world:

1. Experiential Aesthetics
2. Participation/Co-Creation/Co-Production/Co-Experience
3. Contexts & Relations

Of course it is understood that these themes are by no means exclusive, that there always are overlaps, influences, intertwinings, that – especially in an area like experience design – there are never any clear cuts between areas, nonetheless it was felt to be appropriate enough to utilise our findings to establish a general structure for the conference.
