Call for Participation

New digital and networked tools, technologies and techniques are placing the means of production in the hands of the many… Not since the Industrial Revolution has there been such active potential for revolutionising the relationship between Makers and Manufacturers!

We invite submissions from anyone with interests in open design, maker culture, hacking or manufacturing, who feel they would benefit from, or could provide benefit to, discussions about the challenges and opportunities at the intersections and bleeding-edge of making and manufacturing practices.

Applications should be a maximum of 4 pages in the CHI extended abstract format [ Word | LaTeX | example ] and should include:

A short biography of the author(s).


A summary of a piece of recent work that is relevant to the topic of the workshop.


A provocation that articulates a key challenge relating to open design at the intersection of making and manufacturing.
