Call for Papers: 2019 Special edition of JTATM is Empathy in Design

We encourage submissions using methodologies that are related to the design process, such as ethnography, storytelling, observational research, and case study, as well as designed objects that are documented photographically or through video as well as in writing.

Submission Process
Abstracts for all submissions will be accepted beginning immediately, and for full consideration, must be submitted by February 15, 2019. Abstracts will be reviewed and provisional acceptance of all submissions will be made on the basis of abstracts. Final acceptance is contingent upon receipt of completed paper or design submission.

Abstract format
• Paper submissions: Abstracts should be no more than 500 words and should address contents and contributions of the paper, including purpose, research questions, methodology, and key findings.
• Combined research/designed object submissions: Abstracts should be no more than 500 words and should address contents and contributions of the paper, including purpose, research questions, methodology, and key findings. These abstracts should also include photographic documentation of designed objects related to the project (one page max).
Designed object submissions: Abstracts should be no more than 500 words and should address how the designed object relates to the theme of Empathy in Design, and should include indication of how the final submission will be documented (i.e. process evaluation, design statement, etc.). Visual documentation of the designed object at this stage can include photographs of finished objects, but also may be represented by design renderings, technique samples, and prototype photographs that, together, present an effective and compelling story of the planned object.
