The Third Biennial Conference on Participatory Design
October 27-28, 1994
Chapel Hill, NC USA
Sponsored by Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility
In cooperation with SIG-CHI

In the last decade, participatory approaches to design have gained
adherents around the world. These approaches have at their core the
involvement of users in the design and development of new technologies
and work practices. CPSR's Third Conference on Participatory Design
will be attended by an international community of researchers and
practitioners, and is being held immediately following and in the same
location as CSCW (The ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative
Work). We encourage those who are using participatory approaches and
those who may be interested in trying these approaches to attend.
