A Workshop is a 90-minute long, facilitated interactive session for groups of 10-20 people, of learning through doing to explore ideas, practices, understanding and new methods.

They offer the opportunity for researchers (early career and more experienced) to work in a highly interactive manner with an international group. This could be to validate research, try out a new approach, collaborate on the construction of something new or any other activity. Successful workshop proposals will:

  • demonstrate why they will be an enjoyable, fruitful experience for participants (explain why people would sign up for the workshop, what will participants get out of the experience).
  • clearly describe the motivations, methods, and outcomes of the workshop
  • commit to producing a short (~500 word) illustrated report on the results of the workshop for the EAD website.

Proposals of 600 words and a maximum of three images will demonstrate a demand or interest for the subject area. For example, a community that is in place already. A special interest group. There are no abstract submissions for these, rather submission is of the final workshop proposals only.

Peer Review

EAD2019 is an international conference for the reporting and conduct of a wide variety of design from researchers, innovators, professional design services and service users. We invite a broad range of research and design projects at every stage of the journey. We encourage the highest standards of scholarship, seeking clarity in terms of context, explanation of methods, and the reporting of results and-or next stage(s) for the work.

Our aim is to support the design community in an enterprising manner and increase the quality of peer reviewing for EAD. All forms of submission, including full papers will be selected through a double-blind review process conducted by an international review panel. The review process for each sub-track of the conference will be managed separately by a sub-chair and their team who will oversee the peer review process for submissions. This will involve inviting and allocating reviewers, resolving any opposing reviews, and making recommendations to the overall EAD 2019 review committee. ConfTool is the primary tool for managing the submission and reviewing process.

Conference Presentations and Proceedings

Authors of accepted papers and all other submission formats are expected to attend and present their work at EAD2019 in Dundee. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
