Design research is a growing mode of research within the HCI community. At the same time, the role of the artifact in generating knowledge outcomes from research through design (RtD) is ripe for examination. We hope to bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested in exploring how the things of design practice are able to contribute to academic dialogue within HCI and related design fields. By assembling various practitioners and the objects they have designed and produced together in a single room, we seek to be able to discuss the process and practices of research through design and link these closely with material outcomes.

This one-day workshop will provide an opportunity to examine how artifacts can produce and support research outcomes in themselves, and as material bridges to the process through which they emerge. This workshop will combine hands-on examination of design objects, comparison of design experiences, and discussion about qualities of these that are usually necessarily excluded from published academic texts.

Interested participants are invited to submit an artifact to bring to this workshop. This should include:

  • A position paper in CHI archival format (maximum 2 pages) describing the research object under consideration
  • Other digital documentation of the artifact itself (e.g., image, video, website, software application)
  • In addition, participants are asked to submit a brief (200 word) personal biography.

Submissions will be accepted based on quality and interest, and will represent a spectrum of practices, materials, backgrounds, and concerns. Submissions may be sent via email to workshop organizers at

At least one author of each accepted position paper must register and attend the workshop. All workshop participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the ACM CHI conference.
