Welcome to the PDC 2022 website!

Welcome to the website for the 17th edition of the Participatory Design Conference (PDC)!

This is just the first version of this website – a first full draft, so to speak – with basic information about the conference, its format (as a global conference connected through Places) and the initial call for participation for Full Papers (due in October 2021). This site will expand with more information about other tracks during mid-2021, and will start to outline more specific details about the format of the conference and the Places that will act as local hosts for parts of the conference programme.

During mid-2021 we also expect this site will change somewhat, as we intend to have the conference “rebranded” (or, we should say, branded properly!). Then much nearer the conference in mid-2022 this site will transform once again, as we gear up to run the event, which we expect will have a significant online component that will be accessed through this website.

Please do keep checking back to this site over the coming months. We are going to aim to have updates posted several times a month on our planning and ideas for the conference – this will include some updates soon from the PDC Places chairs (Reem Talhouk and Andy Dearden) about the exciting plans we are developing for the distributed format of the conference!

If you are a fan of social media, please also follow our accounts and pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Also, if you have any questions or ideas for PDC 2022, please feel free to get in touch with us!
