Students will complete a major project that studies a particular instance of domestic practice or involves the design or evaluation of a domestic technology. Students will document this project by writing a conference-style publication and presenting the work through a conference-style presentation in front of the class.
Length and Format: The final paper should be between 7 and 10 pages long in ACM CHI Conference format. You will present the work to the class as part of a 20-25 minute presentation (presentation length may change depending on the number of students in the class) followed by questions. For those who create systems for their projects, you can optionally submit a paper that is 4 pages long if you also submit an accompanying video demonstrating your system. The video should be between 2 and 4 minutes in length.
Submission deadline: Please submit your final papers in a Word document format to me, in addition to a PDF, both sent via email.
Evaluation: You will be evaluated on your ability to concisely document your project, method, and results. You will also be graded on your writing ability. Your presentation will be graded on your ability to present the project in an engaging and entertaining fashion. You will be critiqued on both the content of the presentation and your delivery.
