This is really exciting, some of my friends at the Goldsmiths Interaction Design studio are trying out and promoting a new paper format that they are chairing at DIS 2014. The theme of the conference is crafting design, if you are interested please visit the DIS 2014 website.

After getting a photo essay accepted as a full paper in NordiChi were asked to help develop a new format for Designing Interactive Systems 2014 (DIS 2014). So we are introducing Pictorials: an annotated visual submission.
It is early days, a photo essay is one example of how this format could be used, but this format is at a fragile embryonic stage – so we need good people to help shape and push the potential!
