Creativity in Research
Let’s celebrate creativity together!

This year’s theme focusses on the creative part of UX research. UX research is a field born in academia, but most UX researchers work in the creative field functioning as a bridge between technology and people. In our increasingly fast and agile working environments we need to be even more creative to deliver solid research.

We aim to provide an open environment, where we can learn from fellow user researchers and be inspired.

Call For Participation (now open! – Nov 30th)

We heartily invite people involved in UX/User/Design research from around the world to present their work showcasing creativity in user research. If you are not an experienced speaker but feel that your work might benefit the UX Research community, please feel invited to submit your idea. We are happy to offer some form of coaching.

We are seeking proposals for the following lengths: 45 min (only for Keynotes), 30 mins, lightening talks and workshops (3h).

For all submissions please use our Papercall.io submission form.
