Call for proposals

We are currently collecting ideas for presentations for Design Research 2018 (Melbourne), and will continue to accept proposals until Friday December 1.

We are looking for practical presentations about a wide range of topics, and from different types of organisations. We’ll be looking for case studies, techniques, strategies, and more. 

All presentations must be specific to design research. We won’t be including presentations that feel like they are more general UX (hold onto these for UX Australia 2018).

Submitting an Idea

It’s simple. Email your idea to hello@uxaustralia.

You need to include the following information, but it should be no more than one page:

  • Draft title – what you would call this talk in the program
  • Explanation – an overview of what you are going to talk about and why. It does not need to be a detailed description – a few bullet points might be enough – but it does need to explain your idea and what the audience might get from your talk so that it can be assessed
  • Presented before? - please explain when and where and if ytou are pkaning any changes ot the content or format of your talk.
  • Draft presentation description – 2-3 sentences, tops. This is the descriptions we will use on the website if your talk is selected.
  • Where the idea came from and why you’re qualified to talk about it
