Types of proposal

Long papers

They should report on substantial contributions of lasting value. The maximum length is 12 pages, in English (Arial, 12 point, automatic line spacing).

Tales from the market

This category is aimed at professionals active in the marketplace or in non-profit organisations who are exploring design in their work within communities. The maximum length of proposals is 4 pages, in English (Arial, 12 point, automatic line spacing). At the conference, presentations in this category will take the form of panels/roundtables.

Short papers

Short papers may deal with interesting new work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper. Novel but significant proposals will be considered for acceptance in this category, despite not having undergone sufficient experimental validation or lacking a solid theoretical basis. Applications from PhD students are particularly welcome. The maximum length is 6 pages, in English (Arial, 12 point, automatic line spacing). Short papers may be presented in a poster or paper session, as decided by the scientific committee.


Proposals for this category are expected to give rise to sessions that go beyond conventional communication formats and actively involve participants in other types of activities, such as small discussion groups, practical group work. The proposal should include: the title of the workshop and its objectives; the intended format, duration, methods or techniques used to structure the workshop; how participants should contribute to the workshop; how the theme and format of the workshop are linked to the conference, the minimum/maximum number of participants; and the necessary equipment or set-up conditions (if any). These workshops can be held in both English and Spanish.
