"Participation and Design
Inquiring into the politics, contexts and practices of
collaborative design work"

June 23 - 25 2002 - School of Art and Communication,
Malmoe University, Malmoe,  Sweden

Sponsored by Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility
In cooperation with IFIP WG 9.1, Computers and Work
Held in conjunction with DIS 2002, Designing Interactive Systems


Since 1990, the Participatory Design Conferences have
brought together researchers and practitioners from a variety
of disciplines and work traditions, probing the social scope
and practices of design of technology. A core concern has
been to understand how collaborative design processes can be
based on participation of the people affected by the technology

The involvement of users and the focus on human-centered
design, addressing the design of technology 'through the
interface', were pioneered by contributions to the Participatory
Design Conferences. Debates within the participatory design
community have contributed to the development of a new IT
design field emphasizing simultanously the need for thorough
studies of the context of use, the relevance of an open and
participatory design process, and concern for the political
aspects of the technology in use.

Today the collaborative nature of the design process and the
need to involve a large variety of stakeholders has gained
wider acceptance. At the same time a fundamental uncertainty
concerning the scope and directions for the design of
technology has created a growing interest in innovative
approaches to participation and design.

With the theme Participation and Design, the Participatory
Design Conference 2002 invites researchers, designers and
other practitioners to present inquiries into the politics,
contexts and practices of collaborative design work.
We invite contributions from all design fields such as
architecture, urban planning, engineering, interaction design
and others (such as the fine arts) with a focus on
understanding collaborative design work.

Inquiring into the contexts of use is becoming increasingly
important as part of design work. Ethnographic approaches to
field studies are producing valuable insights into existing and
emerging practices of use, but the transition from what we
learn from studies of work practices and social interactions to
the design of a system, application or other design products
remains poorly explored. Despite a well established literature
on such approaches as contextual inquiry, focus groups and
cooperative prototyping, the potential of participatory
approaches to design oriented practice studies is often
neglected in ethnographic approaches.

Altogether, collaborative design practices, although
widespread, are still not well understood. Design processes
that are open to a large and varied group of participants are
lacking a firm grounding in analysis of empirical studies and
action research. How can the organisation of design processes
in time and space accomodate participation? What roles do
coordinating artifacts play in collaboration? How do design
artifacts serve as bridges or barriers to diverse uesrs, including
users with disabilities? What are the effects of distributed
design processes on patterns of participation?What kinds of
dialogues are possible between distributed design practices vs.
local design practices and national or regional cultures?
How does the local design process relate to the potential global
outreach of the design?

The politics of design must address questions about what can
be and what should be designed. In a user-centered design
process the distinction between the designed artifact, the
context of use and the process of design may become blurred .
Where does the design practice end, and the practice of use
begin? When the technology is becoming tailorable in use,
what is it then relevant to design for? How does participatory
design work allow for redesign and participation in use over

Malmoe is the third largest city in Sweden and it forms together
with the Danish capital Copenhagen, the Oresund-region,
where more than 2.5 million people live and work within one
of the densest metropolitan areas of Northern Europe.

The PDC 2002 will be held at Malmoe University in the
buildings of the School of Art and Communication.
The School of Art and Communication founded on a
'manifesto for a digital Bauhaus for the 21'th century' are
one of the Scandinavian pioneers in new design oriented IT
programmes and the School is also hosting the south Sweden
part of Interactive Institute a new research institute bringing
together artists, designers and engineers in search of new
interactions between people and technology.

With the PDC 2002 we expect to bring together between 200
and 300 researchers and designers working with design of
new technology. Bringing the conference to Scandinavia for
the first time provides an exiting opportunity to enlarge the
European participation and particularly to attract a larger
audience among IT professionals in the Scandinavian countries

Entry form and further details:

AIM, in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Los Angeles,
presents Luna Park: a series of critical inquiries into the crucial issues
raised by the nexus of art, technology, entertainment and activism in the
context of globalization and the rising privatization of culture. At the
core of this debate is the ascendance of entertainment and our ubiquitous,
and largely unquestioned, fascination with the spectacular.

Titled in reference to the world's first modern amusement park AIM III: Luna
Park takes place January ­ April 2002, and consists of a series of dynamic
lectures, culminating in a two-day symposium, an International Student
Competition and exhibition, and a number of related events. Further festival

AIM III seeks student entries for its International Student Competition. The
selected entries will be hosted by AIM in an online exhibition, featured in
an exhibition at USC, and will become part of the select pool of works that
AIM draws on when touring internationally. Prizes, including the $1000 USC
SOFA Award, will be awarded by a distinguished jury including: designer,
writer, researcher, and performer Brenda Laurel, and author, researcher, and
curator Erkki Huhtamo.

Submission Criteria: Works must be 'time-based' and created by a student, of
any age, working in any discipline. Works should also be capable of
exhibition on the Internet, and address the festival theme. AIM defines
'time-based' to include: websites, Internet projects, film, video, digital
video, hand-drawn and digital animation, interactive computer games, sound
pieces, digital media, CD-ROMs, and DVDs -  as well as various emerging
hybrids that elude traditional categorization. All entries must be completed
after October 1, 1999, and be complete enough for on-line presentation at
the time of submission. All entries must be postmarked no later than January
15, 2002. 

How to Enter: Submission to AIM is free. Submit copies of projects (no
originals please) in the form of a DVD, VCD, VHS (NTSC), Macintosh CD-ROM,
or a URL, as appropriate. Other formats can be accommodated by prior
arrangement with AIM.

Subject: Patterns for Participation, Action, and Change

          Patterns for Participation, Action, and Change 

DIAC-02 Symposium; Seattle, Washington  USA.  May 16-19, 2002

Researchers, community workers, social activists, educators and students,
journalists, artists, policy-makers, and citizens are all concerned about
the shape that the new information and communication infrastructure will

     Will it meet the needs of all people?
     Will it help people address current and future issues?
     Will it promote democracy, social justice, sustainability? 
     Will the appropriate research be conducted?
     Will equitable policies be enacted? 

The Shaping the Network Society symposium -- sponsored by the Public
Sphere Project of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility and the
National Communication Association Task Force on the Digital Divide --
will provide a forum and a platform for these critical issues. And through
the exploration of "patterns" we hope that this symposium will help spur
the evolution of an information and communication infrastructure that
truly meets today's urgent needs.

Please join us in Seattle in May 2002 for this exceptional event!

To promote bridge-building between theory and practice, across economic,
cultural, geographical, and disciplinary chasms, we are soliciting
"patterns," instead of abstracts, and accepted patterns will be developed
into full papers for this symposium.

Based on the insights of Christopher Alexander and his colleagues, a
"pattern" is a careful description of a solution or suggestion for
remedying an identified problem in a given context that can be used to
help develop and harness communication and information technology in ways
that affirm human values.

The information contained in patterns is similar to that in traditional
abstracts or papers, but it is arranged in a common structure in order to
inspire scholars and practitioners to think about their work in terms of
social implications and actual social engagement and to build networks
that include research, practice, and advocacy.  The most important outcome
may be allowing people to see their patterns in a large yet coherent
network of patterns, a "pattern language."

  + Patterns are SOLUTIONS to PROBLEMS in a given CONTEXT
  + Patterns can be observable actions, empirical findings, 
      hypotheses, theories, or "best practices" 
  + Patterns exist at all levels; they can be "global" as well as 
      "local;" theoretical as well as practical. 
  + Patterns are the springboard for discussion, research, and 

Patterns can be submitted for consideration for presentation at the
symposium and/or published on the web site as a contribution to the
evolving pattern language. (The submitted patterns will be made public in
early 2002.)  Patterns accepted for presentation will be developed into
full papers and will appear in the Conference Proceedings. The best papers
will be selected for an edited book.  A pattern language book / web site
is also planned.

We believe that the "pattern" orientation will be useful and inspiring for
all participants. If you're tempted to submit a pattern (or multiple
patterns!) we encourage you to do so. Although this approach may require
slightly different thinking we believe that it will be worth the extra
effort.  Remember: you can submit patterns whether or not you come to the

In the wake of Sept.11 security has moved to the top of the political 
agenda. A host of new initiatives ranging from new legislation (Bill C-36) 
to the introduction of new technologies (ID cards for immigrants, CCTV 
surveillance of public spaces, biometrics) are currently developed and 
implemented. These measures aim at gathering more and better data on 
individuals, integrating this data into comprehensive profiles and make it 
easier for law enforcement agencies to act upon the gathered intelligence. 
In this talk, David Lyon will present a crictical perspective on 
"surveillance society" raising the question if it still can be a "just

Subject: Speaker Needed

Hello all,

After reading this list for a couple of months, I find it very interesting.
Would anyone here be interested in covering some of the scope of this list
in a speech at the Rubi-con conference ( There is a
big need for speakers on the political and social side of technology and I
would think many of you could fill that void. If you have questions, please
send them to me (

Le festival VIRUS 2001 présente durant 15 jours, à partir du samedi 3
novembre 2001 au 17 novembre, plusieurs Expositions, performances, Soirées,
débat qui, dévoilent à leur tour la diversité sur ce sujet artistique à la
fois délicat et d¹actualité..

La manifestation révèle aussi la force des processus de contamination et la
manière dont ils peuvent être imités par l'homme dans une intention
positive, afin que tout visiteur devienne un électron libre et participe à
une ¦uvre à son tour de contamination et d¹envies bénéfique.

Depuis sa création, Artekno contribue à travers des expositions et
l¹organisation d¹évènements divers, au développement et à la promotion des
arts technologiques (musiques électroniques, graphisme, installations vidéo,
multimédiasŠ). Ces actions ont pour but de  créer des synergies entre les
artistes, les chercheurs et le public autours des trois thèmes : Arts,
Recherches et Technologies.

Après une première version organisée dans le cadre des Rendez-Vous
Electroniques 2000, le festival Virus 2001 gagne son autonomie et prend de
l¹ampleur. Plus de Trente lieux , à Paris allant des galeries
traditionnelles aux bars alternatifs, seront "contaminés" par une
soixantaine d¹artistes. Chacun de ces artistes (musiciens, graphistes,
vidéastesŠ) ont eu la totale liberté de décliner leurs visions personnelles
sur la notion ambiguë de virus. De la communication (marketing viral) à
l¹informatique en passant par la médecine chaque artiste nous enrichit de
son point de vue personnel et pertinent du virus.

L¹art technologique (introduit par la musique électronique) et l¹esprit de
fête sont  indissociables. Une grande soirée aura lieu le 3 novembre pour
ouvrir le premier festival artistique viral. Chaque soir jusqu'à la clôture,
seront organisés soit des performances, des lives de musiques électroniques
ou des spectacles vivants dans tout le réseau Virus 2001.

Parce que les arts technologiques sont soumis aux lois de l¹hybridation, de
l¹échange, de la transmission, de la contamination, l¹idée centrale du
festival Virus 2001 est de générer une appropriation par tous les publics du
mouvement artistique virus. Le festival se donne les moyens de provoquer
l¹inattendu. Tous les publics seront à même d¹être interpellés par le virus
artistique incontrôlable et multiculturel, générateur d¹un dialogue positif
et constructif.

Virus 2001 : 1er Festival artistique de communication virale
Virus, c¹est l¹originalité d¹une pensée que n¹asservit aucun conformisme.

Subject: NEW: London-Cinephiles

    L O N D O N - C I N E P H I L E S
    Ideas and Screenings in the Capital

Launched today: 1 November 2001

London-Cinephiles is a brand new email forum for the announcement of
screenings, talks, festivals, lectures, salons, and other cinematic and
film theoretical events in London. The forum is also happy to accommodate
discussions of contemporary film issues and ideas, but is not intended for
filmmakers or actors or screenwriters who are looking for work or funding
or courses or equipment or help. For such practical matters try the email digests. In this sense London-Cinephiles is
primarily for those on the receiving-end of cinema culture.
London-Cinephiles is for those London filmgoers who love the moving sound

The forum is there to enable critics, lecturers, filmmakers, and
organisations to advertise their talks and showings and meetings,
especially the relatively new area of the gallery art-film show, and those
lo-no-budget experimental, underground, and independent events. London can
be a great capital of the moving-image, with some dedicated organisations:
Exploding Cinema, Shooting People, OMSK, Secret Cinema, Halloween Society,
Raindance, the BFI, Global Cafe, NFT, Curzon Soho, ICA, Genesis Cinema,
Peeping Toms, Ritzy, etc. (but Londoners can travel, so by all means post
details of other UK events). With the recent trouble at the Lux perhaps now
is a good time to set up a email forum dedicated to the London community of

London is also a growing centre for the study of film theory and culture --
new degrees in cinema studies are available at universities such as Thames
Valley, East London, Kings College, UCL, and Birkbeck. There are also many
interesting public lectures and talks that go unreported, so
London-Cinephiles is particularly hoping to help advertise, and perhaps
encourage, intellectual debate about cinema in London.

London-Cinephiles is brought to you by Film-Philosophy


So, if you want to know what's cinematically happening in London, simply
send the message:
join london-cinephiles YOURNAME
join london-cinephiles YOURNAME with digest

(In the digest version you will receive forum posts in a single email, sent
about once a day.)

Infoscapes – Neue Räume – Neue Strategien für die Kommunikation von
Architektur stellt in 4 Panels 26 Positionen und Projekte von
Architekten, Künstlern, Designern und Kuratoren vor, die sich mit den
Möglichkeiten der Neuen Medien zur Mediation von Architektur und
Urbanismus auseinandersetzen. Die Auswahl der Projekte erfolgte aufgrund
der Fragestellung, welche Mittel und Strategien von Architekten und
Künstlern in der Auseinandersetzung mit den Möglichkeiten der Neuen
Medien eingesetzt werden, um der Erfahrbarkeit von Architektur und Stadt
in diesem Medium eine Dimension zu verleihen, die herkömmliche Formen
von Dokumentationen und Repräsentationen nicht zu leisten imstande sind.

In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Internationalen Filmfestival Rotterdam

Da Rotterdam zusammen mit Porto im Jahr 2001 Kulturhauptstadt Europas
ist, hat die Stadt anlässlich ihres 30. Internationalen Filmfestivals
ein spezielles Programm On the Waterfront (Am Wasser), kuratiert von
Gertjan Zuilhof, vorgestellt. Das Programm enthält  Filme, welche auf
verschiedene Weise etwas aus dem reichen Schatz der Geschichten, Mythen
und Dramen, die sich in Häfen
und Hafenstädten abspielen, porträtieren und das Überleben am Meer (und
am Rande der Gesellschaft) zum Thema haben.

Infoscapes – New Spaces – New Strategies for Communicating Architecture
presents in 4 panels 26 items and projects by architects, artists,
designers and curators, who have addressed the opportunities for the
mediation of architecture and urbanism offered by the new media. In this
context, mediation is always seen from the point of view of interaction.
The projects were chosen considering
which architectural and artistic means and strategies had been applied
in the approach to the possibilities offered by the new media with a
view to adding a new dimension to the experience of both architecture
and the urban landscape framed by it. A new dimension not achievable by
conventional means of documentation and representation.

The relation of images of urbanity and the production of space, the
changes and new forms of existence resulting from imagineering as a
contemporary architectural paradigm, and the current selfconception of
urban planners vis-à-vis the global exchange of urban visions of desire
and fear determine the central themes of the conference.

In Cooperation with the International Filmfestival Rotterdam

On the occasion of Rotterdam, together with Porto, being the Cultural
Capital City of Europe in 2001, at its 30th edition the International
Film Festival Rotterdam presented a special programme On the Waterfront,
curated by Gertjan Zuilhof, comprising films that in very different ways
portray something of the wealth of stories, myths and dramas that are
set around harbours, ports and are about surviving by the sea (and on
the edge of society).
