Website: Material Design Journal
Deadline for abstracts submission: 1 September 2016

For this MD Journal call, we seek to engage the ongoing design changes on issues of connectivity between objects and environments at different size levels and to promote new ideas on a broad user experience across social interactions and networked systems. The MD Journal second issue aims to reflect on the connectivity as a design focus in the contemporary culture by bridging various stimuli coming from design, architecture and networks sciences. This issue try to emphasise emerging paths and scenarios that are shaping a wider connectivity.

Adopting the synapses’ concept - often used to indicate the flow among neurons stimuli- we are particularly interested in underpinning those studies and projects that are transforming the ways we design today, merging more and more communication, interaction and technology contexts. The field of Connectivity has been originally practiced for years into the human-machines interaction discipline in response to an increased miniaturization of data transmission technologies. This progression are now radically changing the configuration of the communication and interactions between objects and people as well as possible design concepts and related practices. Moving from the classical Machine to Machine (m2m) ground, the Internet of Things (IoT) design field is becoming a very wide influential phenomena. Nowadays, this evolution lacks the constructive energy between conceptual, theoretical and methodological approaches that we really need to increase the awareness of such connectivity development and on what this overall body of design knowledge offers. At the same time, the increasingly growing of mobile pervasive devices and wearable interactions  has opened innovative ways to design everyday objects.

This call invites diverse communities of theorists and practitioners. We welcome contributions from a range of emphasis: scientific papers, critical review, design methodologies, conceptual and experimental approaches, case studies, prototypes and pilot projects. Areas of interventions could include small and large design sizes. Specifically, with this issue, we hope to explore multidisciplinary approaches across two sides: theoretical and materials. On one side we aims to extend the IoT field of study from the general approach to the more scientific one, bridging research areas on digital objects, services and environments, user-centered design, smart objects, social platforms and networked systems.

Possible topics of exploration include, but are not limited to:

•              Ecosystems of networked objects;
•              Networked interfaces and new materials for smart buildings;
•              Wearable technology;
•              Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environment;
•              Energy management and networked systems;
•              Biohacking, healthcare and wellbeing;
•              Personal informatics and quantified self;
•              Open source and open hardware;
•              Open data and infoviz systems;
•              Interactive experiences in smart exhibition and cultural heritage;
•              Transportation and public spaces;
•              Privacy, security and ethics in a connected world;
•              Social platforms for data sharing.

We seek the presentation of unique, ground breaking, significant case studies, practice of design, prototypes and the review of pilot projects from an academic and not perspective.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit an electronic version of original, unpublished manuscripts in English or Italian language. Contributions will be archived digitally on a web-based Open Access publication.

Deadline for abstract September 1st, 2016. Please submit for a peer review to materialdesign@unife.it.
