During the sessions, participants will have 60 minutes to present their projects and discuss their work with an international panel. We select participants through a double-blind peer-review process of the submissions. We will publish extended abstracts and artefacts of selected participants in the online conference proceedings. Selected participants will also contribute to the CA²RE database of evaluated materials (delivering digital files of the presentation and any other document presented at the event, licensed under [(CC) BY-NC-SA]).

For the submission, the applicants are asked to provide the following:


800-1200 words including illustrations (max two pages of images, as an integral part of the submitted file);


600-800 words including illustrations (max four pages of images, as an integral part of the submitted file);


A short reflection on the importance and role of Design Driven research approach, methodologies, techniques and tools employed in the research project (max 250 words), referring as well to the conference's main topic.

A short CV (max 100 words). Do not include the CV in the main file you'll be uploading. Instead, we ask you to add a website or cloud link while filling in your contact information in EasyChair, where participants can find your CV.

We will send layout specifications upon acceptance. The 60 minutes presentation and discussion with international reviewers at the conference will be regarded as a second peer review. During the presentation, we invite participants to experiment with presentation formats.
