User centered design and international development
This workshop explores User Centered Design (UCD) challenges and contributions to International economic and community Development. We are addressing interaction design for parts of the world that are often marginalized by the Global North as well as people in the Global North who are themselves similarly marginalized by poverty or other barriers. We hope to extend the boundaries of the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) by spurring a discussion on how existing UCD practices can be adapted and modified, and how new practices be developed, to deal with the unique challenges posed by this context. Keywords User Centered Design, UCD, Participatory Design, International Development, Developing Countries, Cross cultural design, Information and Communication Technology, ICT, UCDI4D ACM Classification Keywords H5.2 User Interfaces, H5.m HCI Miscellaneous.
