Format of the contributions & Participants selection


Participants will be selected on the basis of a submitted position paper of maximum 4 pages (LNCS style). All submissions will be reviewed at least by two members of the scientific committee and by the workshop organizers. The selection will be done to ensure scientific quality together with the presence of different perspectives and to foster discussion.


The submission and review process will be handled by Easychair -> link for paper submission


To promote discussion we intend to limit the number of accepted contributions to 12-15 and participation to no more than 20-25 people (the authors plus a small number of listeners strongly motivated to contribute to the discussion).





After the workshop, participants will be invited to prepare a revised and extended paper to be included as part of a special issue of Interaction Design and Architecture(s) (IxD&A); a slot has been reserved for the second half of 2015. The call for papers will be open to assure high quality of the special issue.
