Tutorials provide conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and technologies in a broad range of areas in the field of design. Tutorial topics range from practical guidelines and standards to academic issues and theory. Tutorial participants include designers and users, software developers, managers of design projects, design evaluators and testers, teachers of design, researchers in design, and professionals in other areas seeking to gain an understanding of how design relates to their specialities.

Duration
Each tutorial is designed to be a half-day or full-day in duration. Half-day tutorials are 3 hours long (not including breaks). Full day tutorials are 6 hours long (not including breaks). Please indicate the duration of your proposed tutorial on your Cover Page.

Attendee Background
The background of attendees assumed by the tutorial should be described explicitly and in detail in the proposal.

Topics
Tutorials cover a wide range of design-related topics, such as service design, emotional design, mass customization as a new design tool, systematic user-centered methods, experience prototyping, sustainable design: strategies & methods and ethnography for mobile industry.

Review Criteria
Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their estimated benefit for prospective participants and on their fit within the tutorials program as a whole. Factors to be considered include relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half-day or full-day tutorial format; use of presentation methods that offer participants direct experience with the material being taught; and past experience and qualifications of the instructors. Selection is also based on the overall distribution of topics, approaches (overview, theory, methodology, how-to), audience experience levels, and specialities of the intended audiences. Thus, not all tutorials of technical merit can be accommodated.
