Beyond Current User Research: Designing Methods for New Users,
Technologies, and Design Processes
A workshop at CHI2007, San Jose, California
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
This workshop focuses on the challenges of creating or adapting user
research methods for use with new user groups, technologies, and
design processes. For example, how do you assess the usability of a
mobile, multi-user social-network system? We want to hear your answers
to challenges like this.
We invite user researchers who have created/modified user research
methods to submit case studies describing and analyzing their
experience. Successful submissions must address these questions:
(1) What was the impetus for creating the new method or revising
an existing method? What circumstances created the need for the
method? What goals did the method have to meet? What data was needed?
(2) How was the method implemented? What process was followed to
develop the method? How were problems addressed when applying it? How
was its quality assessed?
(3) What was the impact of the method on the design process? How
was impact tracked? What circumstances, if any, limited the method's
impact on design?
This one-day workshop will focus on analyzing your case studies to
identify guidelines for improving future work.
Submit a 4-page paper plus a short bio to jramey@... by
12 January 2007. At least one author needs to register for the
workshop and for one day of the CHI 2007 conference.
