VID2012 - Pitches
Final group presentations of the Values in Design 2012 Workshop at CalIT2 at UC Irvine on Saturday August 25th 2012.

The Values in Design Doctoral Workshop is a week-long, intensive event sponsored by the Values in Design Program through the Department of Informatics in the Donald Bren School of Information & Computer Sciences at University of California, Irvine.

We bring together a group of 30-40 exceptional PhD candidates from a wide range of backgrounds to study and address issues of how human and social values are embedded, built into, influence, and otherwise instantiate themselves in information systems and technologies. By working across the intersections of computer science and engineering, social studies of science and technology, anthropology, policy and law, business, social entrepreneurship, art, design, and information science, the group both delves into the theories contributing to (and arising out of) sociotechnical design, as well as spends the week designing and building original information systems and technologies that materialize a set of social values.
