PDC - Participatory Design ConferenceCPSR's Participatory Design Conference is an international forum where this emerging community can meet, exchange ideas and experiences, and investigate the incorporation of participatory design approaches in new areas such as: product development, long-term system maintenance and redesign, and settings in the developing world.
The first Participatory Design conference explored the historical roots of this way of working, by bringing European practitioners together with American researchers and industry developers. By the second conference, PDC'92, participatory approaches to design had taken root in the US, not only in research environments, but also at several commercial firms. The goal at that time was totake a further step towards defining and nurturing participatory design. PDC'94 focused on ways of working and fostering a substantial dialog among practitioners.
