Design Research 2019 - Call For Presentations
We are now accepting ideas for presentations and workshops for Design Research 2019, to be held in Sydney from 13-15 March. We will continue to accept proposals right up until midnight Friday 9 November 2018 AEDT.
We’re looking for practical presentations on 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 on to these for UX Australia 2019).
Presentation proposals should include the following information in 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 doesn’t 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.
- Presented this before? - please explain when and where, and if you’re planning any changes of the content or format of your talk.
- Draft presentation description – 2-3 sentences, tops. This is the description we’ll use on the website if your talk is selected.
- Where did the idea come from and why are you qualified to talk about it?
To understand the wide range of presentations we included at previous events, take a look at Design Research 2018 and 2017. For tips on how to submit a proposal, see How to write a kick-ass conference proposal.
Hands-on workshops are for learning practical skills or exploring a topic in detail. Active audience participation is a core part of the workshop.
We're looking for a mix of workshops appropriate for people new to UX, midweight practitioners, and/or experienced UX professionals - deep dives into emerging techniques, new perspectives, and best practice for Design Research.
Workshop proposals should include the following information in no more than one page:
- Draft title – what you would call this workshop in the program
- Length - full or half day
- Explanation – who is your target group, what will they learn, what kind of activities will you lead, what kind of setup would you need, how many participants could you take – explain your idea, sell it to us.
- Led this before? - please explain when and where, and if you’re planning any changes of the content or format of the workshop.
- Draft workshop description – 2-3 sentences, tops. This is the description we’ll use on the website if your workshop is selected.
- Why is this a hands-on workshop instead of a conference talk?
