Beyond Academic Publication: Alternative Outcomes of Research

I am helping to co-organise a workshop titled Beyond Academic Publication: Alternative Outcomes of HCI Research at the 2023 edition of the Designing Interactive Systems Conference. I’m a big advocate of diversifying how we share academic research, and I think the tradition of the ‘archival paper’, while it has many good points, represents many evils and limitations too. Hence, I’m delighted to take part in this!

The workshop will:

  • Explore the diversity of alternative research outcomes to date
  • Try to understand the value of alternative outcomes, why do we want and need them?
  • Discuss the relationship between diverse outcomes and situated knowledge (which I suspect might have something to do with ‘designerly knowledge’)

To attend you’re invited to upload a short position paper, full details on the workshop website. Help us with promotion by retweeting please!
