This workshop aims to bring together Research through Design (RtD) practitioners in the DIS community, giving them a space to present, debate, and discuss issues emerging from their work. In particular, our goal is to catalyze a focused conversation on contexts and specific situations of research through design, discussing the ins-and-outs of working in a specific context and with particular issues of consequence. Building on the success of prior RtD and design research workshops at HCI conferences, this workshop will focus on how RtD artifacts operate in these contexts, with the goal of connecting diverse artefacts with broader methods in HCI and Design.
