Welcome to DIS 2022, 13-17 June, online

Digital Wellbeing

The ACM SIGCHI Conference on Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) is the premier international arena where designers, artists, psychologists, user experience researchers, systems engineers, and many more, come together to debate and shape the future of interactive systems design and practice. DIS is ranked 11th in HCI on Google Scholar and a Tier A publication venue, partly due to an average acceptance rate of 25% over the years.

The theme for DIS 2022 is “Digital Wellbeing” and will be held online from June 13-June 17 2022. The theme responds to the need for designers and design researchers to not only design for wellbeing, but also to look after their own wellbeing and the people around them, through and with design. The result will be an opportunity to learn who we are and who we want to become. To achieve this, DIS 2022 will be a way to identify how to get there.

We support attendees’ wellbeing through the conference experience: we will make it as stress-free as possible to submit your work, and will support an asynchronous format that supports people in different time zones and with different family commitments. This hopefully allows many people to attend the conference and discuss interactions, materials, processes, technologies and designs in novel ways. We are looking forward to your work!

Registration opens soon 

Aligning with our theme, DIS 2022 will be an asynchronous distributed conference, like before. We will continue DIS as a premier venue for interaction design research in HCI while preserving our collective health, safety and sanity. In these times, survival, perseverance and continuity is a triumph. The opportunity to share our work, and to think about material, interaction, process, technology and design is a cause for celebration. 

The venues for DIS 2022 will be the technical program (papers and pictorials), and the doctoral consortium, repeating the venues from the previous DIS. We forgo workshops, provocations, demonstrations, the student design competition and the design exhibition, which DIS can welcome with open arms when we are all able to physically meet again.
