Include 2007 is the fourth Include conference and promises to be an exciting forum that builds on previous conferences in two ways - by making user participation in all its diversity central to the design discourse and by broadening the constituency for inclusive design among those professions and groups normally outside consideration.
The theme of this year is designing with people - strategies, stories and systems for user participation in design. The conference aims to engage those involved in all aspects of user-centred design practice, research and advocacy - from consumers, user groups, designers, design managers and clients to voluntary sector organisations, researchers and policy makers.
As interest in inclusive design grows, we need to be more experimental, challenging and discursive in our approach. Inclusive design practice needs to be taken forward with new methods, audiences and practitioners. Conference submissions are invited in relation to this aspiration.
Include 2007 will take place at the Royal College of Art, London, UK, 2 to 4 April 2007. There will be a welcome reception on Sunday 1 April.
