We will be discussing Christoph Bartneck’s presentation at alt.chi 2008.

Available online at: http://www.chi2008.org/altchisystem/submissions/submission_bartneck_0.pdf

Original abstract: The human-computer interaction community is an umbrella for many disciplines. Conflicts occur from time to time, in particular between scientists and designers. This article compares the quality criteria used in design with those used in science, in order to gain insight into what design can contribute to the development of science. From the scientific perspective, the weakest point of design knowledge is its limited generalizability.

Rubric for the reading group: Everyone attending is expected to read the paper in advance. Please bring a copy with you, preferably annotated with interesting reflections. The format of discussion will be a brief invited introduction/critique by two members of the group, followed by general discussion and informal mixing.

This talk is part of the Crucible/Microsoft HCI Reading Group series.
