NordiCHI’12 WS: Designing Interactive Technology for Teens

Call for Participation

Design. The theme of this workshop is to investigate designing in the
space occupied by those aged around 13 to 17, the population of
teenagers who are undergoing significant changes mentally, physically
and psychologically.

This half-day workshop aims to bring together practitioners and
academics (designers, ethnographers, psychologists, developers, games
developers, usability personnel) to share knowledge and explore:

– What is known about gathering requirements from teens?

Participation is by a 2 / 4 page paper in the CHI extended abstracts

teenage personas found at in their work.
